EQUIPMENT

 

Thel Gyrotonic Expansion System is a unique system of equipment and exercise that incorporates movement principles from yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai-chi. Created by Juliu Horvath, this system stretches and strengthens muscles, while simultaneously stimulating and strengthening connective tissues in and around the joints of the body. Exercises, synchronized with corresponding breathing patterns, enhance aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation and promote neuromuscular rejuvenation.

Unlike most conventional exercise machines where linear or isolated movement patterns are performed creating uncoordinated strength, the patented Gyrotonic Expansion System emphasizes multiple joint articulations without compression, thus strengthening ligaments and each attachment.

The Gyrotonic equipment offers complete freedom of movement. It is fully adjustable to meet the needs of every body type and level of strength. The even constant resistance in the handle unit and pulley tower (through the triple reduction in the pulleys) completely eliminates the jarring in the beginning and end of a movement found in conventional exercise equipment, where most injuries occur. Unique to the Gyrotonic, the circularity, spiraling and undulating movements increase the functional capacity of the spine and create a spherical and three-dimensional awareness, resulting in total equilibrium.

The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM equipment was awarded a medal at the 7th International Invention Convention in Pittsburgh, 1991.

The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM is used worldwide by people of all ages in therapeutic, dance, sports specific and general conditioning facilities. To be entitled to professional use of GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM, you must be a Certified GYROTONIC Trainer. For information please contact us.
