An innovative approach to whole body fitness, spinal health/flexibility, and core strengthening developed by Hungarian-born Juliu Horvath. Drawing from his background in dance, swimming, yoga, and eastern medicine, Juliu Horvath created circular and spiraling movement patterns that stretch and strengthen while stimulating every major system of the body. These organic movement exercises are now being taught around the world by certified instructors on a unique apparatus called the GYROTONIC® Expansion System®. This machine consists of a complex system of handles and weighted pulleys and is fully adjustable to meet each individuals needs. GYROTONIC® is used for both performance enhancement and rehabilitation. Like Pilates, GYROTONIC® strengthens the core of the body, this in addition to the fluid flexibility and coordination gains helps prevent injuries and increase joint health and stability.
