The fundamentals of the GYROTONIC Expansion System® consists of a totally new exercise system, using GYROKINESIS® principles as the basis to exercise the musculature while mobilizing and articulating the joints.
The uniqueness of the System is that it simultaneously stretches and strengthens the body with minimal effort, while increasing range of motion and developing coordination.
The GYROTONIC Expansion System® was specially conceived regarding key principles of gymnastics, swimming, ballet, and yoga through which major muscle groups are worked interdependently and in an integrated manner.
This “System” is served by a series of specially designed exercise equipment which is built around the human body with all regards to total freedom in movement, no restriction to speed and versatility, and enhances rather than distracts from coordination, strength and flexibility.
The motion patterns are natural, turbulence free and pure with no interruption, creating a bridge between contraction and extension through the rotating movement of the joints, resulting in a balanced support system for the skeleton.
The exercises are performed through spherical awareness and circularity of movement, enabling the user to perform under permanent guidance, variable controlled resistance, and real sports simulation with no limitation to speed and impact.
Through uniform and permanent resistance meaning through all the changes of directions and as well within the pivot axis, the concentric and eccentric forces exerted by the involved muscle groups are maximized and evenly distributed between agonist and antagonist (muscle groups).
Each exercise is synchronized with a corresponding breathing pattern and is performed with either a rhythm or melodic rhythmical expression, creating a gentle or vigorous cardiovascular-aerobic stimulation, depending on the intensity and speed of the execution.
Special attention is paid to increase the functional capacity of the spine, resulting in a superior and well-proportioned body, which is significantly less prone to injuries. It also reduces long term accumulation of micro trauma the physique obtains, and extraordinary flexibility and essential strength, culminating in an organic rejuvenation, increased vitality and vigour.
All sporting activities demand strength, flexibility, coordination and range of motion. The GYROTONIC Expansion System® provides tomorrow and today’s athletes not only with the entire above, but also with greater degree of endurance, versatility and gracefulness to all performed competitive skills and movements.
