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.
Unlike most conventional exercise machines where linear or isolated movements are performed, the patented GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® emphasizes multiple joint articulations without compression, resulting in increased range of motion and strength without stressing the joints.
This unique system of exercise safely works in all planes of motion making it excellent for the joints of rotation such as the spine, hip and shoulder. Each exercise is synchronized with a corresponding breathing pattern and can be performed gently to improve awareness and control or vigorously for a cardiovascular workout.
Currently the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is used worldwide with great success for dancers, athletes as well as in rehabilitation settings for general conditioning for all ages and levels of activity.
