The GYROTONIC® Method is an original, and unique movement method that enables simultaneous lengthening and strengthening of muscles, stimulates circulation, and enhances joint mobility, and coordination. GYROTONIC® exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breathing patterns. With GYROTONIC® exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.
Additionally, each exercise is synchronized with a breathing pattern and is performed with rhythm, creating a cardiovascular-aerobic stimulation that can be either gentle or vigorous depending on the intensity and speed of the execution. Special attention is paid to increasing the functional capacity of the spine, resulting in a balanced support system for the skeleton and a body that is less prone to injury.
The GYROTONIC® Method is a great exercise choice for anyone who wants to safely and effectively recondition their body. For the absolute beginner, two or three private sessions with a GYROTONIC® Trainer is the best way to get started. A skilled trainer will be able to assess your range motion and ability and will choose exercises and modifications specific to your needs and abilities.
GYROTONIC® sessions are a great complement to a traditional physical therapy program and can make a significant contribution to the recovery process. Due to the focus on joint stability, muscle balance, and functional strength, GYROTONIC® sessions are an ideal post-rehabilitation exercise option.
All sporting activities demand strength, flexibility, coordination, and range of motion. The GYROTONIC Expansion System® offers athletes these crucial elements yet also provides them with an even greater degree of endurance, versatility and gracefulness, increasing their ability to perform any athletic skill or motion.
GYROTONIC® equipment has been developed around the human body with emphasis on total and complete freedom of movement. All of the equipment was designed to enhance the process of building coordination, strength, and flexibility. GYROTONIC® exercises offer the same healthy resistance provided by water, but unlike exercises that are performed under water, where it is difficult to regulate an exact movement pattern and correct position, exercises performed on GYROTONIC® equipment are done with maximum adjustability to the range of motion and control of positioning.
