In most forms of exercise, the movements are very linear, however, in real life, we don't really move in a straight line. These movements compress energy back into the body. The circular movements of GYROTONIC® focus on all aspects of the joints, improving flexibility, resilience and strength. These moves create a fluid flow of energy that creates stronger joints and surrounding tissues, making the entire body much more supple and responsive to any activity or impact that life offers.
We usually look to exercise to help us lose weight, sculpt the body, develop overall strength and flexibility, recover from an injury, improving coordination, among other things. Most forms of exercise address one or two of these goals. Juliu Horvath developed the GYROTONIC® expansion system with all of these goals in mind-by working the body in an integrated and harmonious manner. Juliu Horvath's intention is to bring the body, mind and soul together for optimal health and wellbeing. GYROTONIC® exercises are performed on a specially designed wooden machine with rotational discs and weighted pulleys that allow the client to strengthen their muscles using flowing, circular movements.
The benefits of GYROTONIC® include:
- Improved functional capacity of the spine, enhancing multiple joint articulations
- Strengthened ligaments and all the connective tissues in the body
