About GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS®:
Derived from the words gyro (spiral or circle) and tonic (to tone or invigorate), GYROTONIC® is an exercise method designed to enhance the body’s range of motion, coordination, and stamina. Conceived from the key principles of yoga, martial arts, gymnastics, and ballet, the exercises are performed on specialized equipment designed around the human body.
Most conventional exercise machines work linear and isolated movement patterns, which create uncoordinated strength. GYROTONIC® equipment utilizes natural and integrated, circular movements which guide the muscles to flow smoothly between contraction and extension. This produces coordinated power, a strong center and balanced support throughout the entire skeletal system.
Each exercise is synchronized with the breath to create a gentle or vigorous cardiovascular-aerobic workout, while the graceful and rhythmic movements simultaneously strengthen and lengthen all of the major muscle groups and joints. Special attention is paid to decrease compression in the spine and improve its alignment. This results in a well proportioned, long, lean body significantly less prone to injuries.
