Juliu Horvath created GYROTONIC® equipment and exercises after many years of intense study and self-exploration. This unique method offers the same benefits also acquired by practicing yoga, dance, gymnastics, swimming and tai chi, but is not directly derived from these exercise modalities. The work decompresses the spine, improves circulation, opens the joints, stretches nerves, stengthens the core, legs, shoulders & arms, and increases coordination.
GYROTONIC® Methodology Allows Users to Stretch And Strengthen Muscles, while Simultaneously Stimulating and Strengthening Connective Tissues in and Around the Joints of the Body.
These exercises are synchronized with corresponding breathing patterns, thus enhancing aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation and promoting neuro-muscular rejuvenation. The circular, spiraling and undulating movements that characterize the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® help to increase the functional capacity of the spine, contributing to a spherical and three-dimensional awareness, resulting in increased equilibrium, joint mobility and core strength.
GYROTONIC® exercise offers complete freedom of movement within multiple planes of motion – something not offered by other exercise modalities.
Exercises are performed on the Professional Pulley Tower, and the system is fully adjustable and can meet the needs of many people with varying body types and levels of strength. The even and constant resistance in the handle unit and pulley tower, completely eliminates the jarring that takes place at the beginning and end of exercises performed on conventional exercise equipment (when many injuries can occur).
