The GYROTONIC® method incorporates various equipment including the GYROTONIC® Pulley Tower Combination Unit, JUMPING STRETCHING BOARD, LEG EXTENSION UNIT, THE ARCHWAY, and GYROTONER®. The most commonly used equipment, the GYROTONIC® Pulley Tower, consists of a wooden tower with weighted pulleys and a padded bench with two rotating handles. The rotating handles allow you to perform a series of arches and curls which smoothly guide your spine through a myriad of spinal motions (flexion, extension, spiral, and lateral flexion). The Pulley tower provides resistance and supports the movements of your upper and lower body utilizing the pulley’s straps. The overall movement is smooth and fluid, which improves strength and stability while being kind to your joints.
