The GYROTONIC® method takes you beyond the conventional linear exercise methods, into a spherical awareness. Begin the journey to increase the functional capacity of the spine, and obtain extraordinary flexibility and essential strength, rejuvenation, and increased vitality and vigor.
The Archway is considered to be the most physically demanding piece of specialized equipment. The vertical, tiered ladder design accommodates advanced strength and stability sequences by allowing users to perform exercises in various relationships to gravity- vertical, horizontal, diagonal, and inverted.
A broad range of exercise sequences and modification options make the Jumping Stretching Board accessible to people of all levels of strength and flexibility. Jumping Stretching Board exercise sequences are composed of full body, functional exercises, performed in a variety of body positions- kneeling, standing, lying and sitting.
The Leg Extension Unit facilitates functional full, body movement sequences that strengthen upper/lower body coordination, and hand/foot coordination. Contra-lateral movement sequences in various planes increase functional strength and stability at all joints. A patented cam mechanism allows the leg to elongate, as it extends.
The Pulley Tower Combination Unit is the most widely used piece of Gyrotonic Equipment. It is the result of over thirty years of research and development. The pulley tower provides smooth, even support and resistance via a unique, weighted pulley system, adjustable bench and rotating handle.
Juliu Horvath developed the movements that one can perform on the Gyrotoner so that various muscle groups, tendons and ligaments in the spine,arms, hips, legs and ankles, among other body parts, could be strengthened and stretched simultaneously while the user consciously engages breathing patterns when executing the movements.
