GYROKINESIS® exercises allow one to work on the entire body through natural elements of spinal movement.

This includes the following seven natural elements of spinal movement: forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular, as well as all other joint articulation. This approach systematically and gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating movements. These movements stimulate the body’s internal organs while different corresponding breathing patterns are integrated along with the movements.

Jumping-Stretching Board

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.
