Pulley Tower Combination Unit
The GYROTONIC® Pulley Tower Combination Unit is the result of over thirty years of research and development, and is the most widely used piece of Gyrotonic Equipment. The pulley tower provides smooth, even support and resistance via a unique, weighted pulley system. The adjustable bench and rotating handle unit can be customized to fit the individual proportions, and movement capacities of each user. The design of the equipment supports the full, and natural range of motion of the joints, allowing for three-dimensional, functional movement, and eliminating the sharp starts and stops where most injury occurs.
A broad range of exercise sequences and modification options make the Jumping-Stretching Board accessible to people of all levels of strength and flexibility. Due to its versatility, and popularity with clients, this is often the first piece of specialized equipment added to a GYROTONIC® studio.
Jumping-Stretching Board exercise sequences are composed of full body, functional exercises, performed in a variety of body positions- kneeling, standing, lying and sitting. A diverse range of standing exercises improve flexibility, coordination, and functional strength.
The ergonomic, gliding platform allows users to experience running, and jumping in a low impact, horizontal plane, with the spine and pelvis fully supported, making it ideal for post injury exercise. Four independent gliding slides, with optional rotating platforms, provide for challenging strength and coordination sequences. The propeller accessory, and pulley tower feature are also included with this unit.
The GYROTONER® facilitates hip, and shoulder articulation in a myriad of different planes. It is an especially useful piece of equipment for mobilizing the thoracic spine, and for coordinating hip, and shoulder movements with the spine. Excellent for pregnant woman as the design makes space for growing belly! Great for prenatal exercise as well as for heart opening & facilitating more space in between scapulas!
The Archway is considered by many to be the most physically demanding piece of specialized equipment. The vertical, tiered ladder design of the Archway accommodates advanced strength and stability sequences by allowing users to perform exercises in various relationships to gravity- vertical, horizontal, diagonal, and inverted. The included propeller accessory, and adjustable arms provide standing, and rotation exercises for people of various abilities- beginners to advanced. The Archway is a great addition to any studio, and is especially popular with dancers, and other athletes.
Leg Extension Unit
The Leg Extension Unit facilitates functional full body movement sequences that strengthen upper/lower body coordination, and hand/foot coordination. Contra-lateral movement sequences in various planes increase functional strength and stability at all joints. A unique, patented, cam mechanism allows the leg to elongate, as it extends. So, the hip and knee joints are able to move in a fluid, natural range, without compression, increasing stability and strength around those joints. Hand/foot straps, and lightweight aluminum Wing Master accessory also available.
