the pilates Box is wood construction nicely padded and covered in a Naugahyde upholstery cover it is comfortable to the touch the pole is vinyl plastic the box is for execution of advance Pilates routines the pole is for stabilization they can be used together or separately with or without the reformer apparatus I haven't used mine yet as I am still in the beginner classification but look forward to doing advanced routines in a few weeks about a month if you plan on purchasing a pilates reformer I would recommend purchasing this item at the same time so you won't have to wait because advancement to the next level of training comes quickly when the workout is so fun.
Love peak pilates apparatus Bought 3 for my pilates studio. Sturdy and great look. Also stands upright for extra space. Price was better then anyone.
pole gives you good balance. box is sturdy and fits nicely on the machine. using the box allows additional ab exercises. Pilates video that comes with the box is helpful but would be more useful if it wasn't so short and had more arm and leg exercises.
