The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a modality of movement that encourages gentle yet effective movement, stimulating, stretching and strengthening muscles and tendons. By utilizing a system of pulleys, counterweights and springs, GYROTONIC® machines provide constant and smooth resistance while guiding your body through the proper movement, and each exercise is optimized through corresponding breathing patterns.
The undulating, rhythmic exercises performed on GYROTONIC® machines offer many of the same benefits as yoga, swimming, some martial arts, dance and gymnastics, including enhanced aerobic, metabolic and cardiovascular function, increased coordination and endurance, and improved neuromuscular rejuvenation.
Developed in the early 1980’s in the United States by Hungarian dancer Juliu Horvath, the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® asserts itself more and more all around the world as a valid instrument to exalt physical excellence in all sport disciplines. It is gaining increasing attention as one of the best techniques of physical rehabilitation directed towards one’s functional recovery as a means for re-establishing structural and functional well-being.
