gyrotonic exercise

The GYROTONIC® Method, developed by Juliu Horvath is an innovative and fascinating form of exercise that increases your strength, flexibility, and stamina. GYROTONIC® exercise comes from the word “gyro” meaning spiral or circle and “tonic” meaning to tone or invigorate.

This unique method offers benefits also derived from swimming, yoga, gymnastics, dance and martial arts. This apparatus is designed for individuals to exercise with a spine centered approach. This is reflected in the dynamic multi-directional movements.

Fluid circular movements allow the individual to exercise musculature while articulating the joints. With the body continuously supported by the equipment, either in lying or sitting positions, the client moves through a series of rhythmical, low impact exercises. This form of exercise is specifically designed to gradually stretch and strengthen the musculature, improve articulation of the joints and spine.

As well as, build abdominal strength to enhance core support, balance and stability. Breathing patterns are synchronized with the exercises to stimulate the nervous and cardiovascular systems. Exercises can be performed at various speeds and resistances for real sport simulation.

GYROTONIC® Exercise for Golf

GYROTONIC® exercise has gained popularity with golfers such as Tiger Woods due of its many benefits. This form of exercise assists golfers by improving flexibility, endurance, and power translating to improved performance in their game.

The design of the equipment itself guides the body to move in 3-dimensions, making it a natural fit with the golf swing. ABove Physical Therapy’s GYROTONIC® instructors will work with you and your golf pro to address the current issues with your swing.

Why is GYROTONIC® Exercise equipment better than Gym Machines?

Most conventional exercise machines employ linear and isolated movement patterns which create uncoordinated strength. The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® method promotes multiple joint articulations creating coordinated power in the muscles.

By moving in connected, natural patterns, the body flows smoothly from one movement to the next bringing balance and support to the musculoskeletal system. The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® method can relieve muscle stress, increase body awareness and strength, create ease and efficiency of movement, and provide an overall sense of well being.
