GYROTONIC® for Sports and Sport Rehab

The GYROTONIC equipment is designed with such a varied range of physical possibilities that a serious athlete can simulate almost any sports Rehab movement from their specific sport. Golfers have found the spinal rotation sports specific works in GYROTONIC to improve their golf swings. Gymnasts, who require incredible flexibility, find the stretching and lengthening of the muscles that GYROTONIC rehabs and improves their performance. Skiing, swimming, tennis, golf, running, gymnastics, riding, dancing, and martial art sports specific skills can all be improved by the internal and external strength and flexibility exercises that can be achieved through our sports specific designed programs and sports rehab programmes.

The GYROTONIC sports specific technique addresses principles and goals in maintaining flexibility, strength and tone, along with correcting muscle imbalance, improving breathing patterns which can lead to an improved sense of well being and rehab sports injuries.


“It’s great! Most golfers fight coming up out of the shot, but this strengthening routine works on keeping you in the shot from start to finish. Since I have been paying attention to my posture and flexibility, I have moved from 60th to 30th on the money list in one year.”
Andrew Magee, PGA Tour golfer
“By far the most intelligent training system that I have encountered. Many sports require a sequential and integrated movement in the body through space. When the sequence is broken, the end result is affected. Whether throwing a baseball, or hitting a baseball, golf ball or tennis ball, the principles are the same. GYROTONIC movements facilitate one to not ‘muscle’ the body thru space, where many injuries occur, but to ‘release’ the body thru space, in a connected and sequentially integrated matter. Training the muscles in an isolated way, as most other training systems do, actually inhibits sequential connections in the body rather than support it, as GYROTONIC training does… and much, much more.”
Matt Aversa, Athlete and former Professional Pitching Coach
“The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM has completely transformed the way I understand my pitching delivery and how I prepare for each outing during the baseball season. GYROTONIC and GYROKINESIS exercises have improved my body sensitivity and awareness through the introduction of certain concepts such as circular movement, spirals, kinetic chains, spinal health and mobility, hip and shoulder joint health and suppleness, and energetic pathways. It’s a way of taking care of my body by opening up the spine and improving the quality of movements in space, on the baseball field, and in life. By opening up pathways in my body, both GYROTONIC and GYROKINESIS practice help my actions and reactions in baseball to be quicker, smoother, and completely under control. Ultimately, both of these modalities allow me to enjoy the game in more depth, which is why I keep doing it.”
Brian Henderson, Pitcher, Tampa Bay Devil Rays

“The gap between exercise and its transference into functional skill in athletic performance or rehabilitation occupies many researchers in the field of motor learning and control. With a clever design of three-dimensional patterns, dynamic breathing and teaching of postural and movement awareness, GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® practices easily translate into smooth and efficient moves applicable to daily life, whatever the functional level of the client.”
Lucia Rojas, Physical Therapist from New York
“People who are sedentary will rediscover the joy of movement. Those who dedicate themselves to the practice of a sport dance, or any other movement will benefit from this particular method.”
Ubaldo Garagiola, Sports Medicine Specialist from Italy
“GYROTONIC methodology is an exceptional movement system. It teaches the student to find and understand the support for and functional relationship of the entire body. The body is then able to work as it is designed– as a functional whole. This is in contrast to other exercise systems, which look at the body as separate with isolated parts, which work these parts individually. This is contrary to Nature’s ways. Health is only achieved through movement, and GYROTONIC training helps to restore movement to this contracting culture. Its role in rehabilitation as well in general health is profound and must not be underestimated.”
Dr Jill Sanders, Doctor of Osteopathy from New York
“Our body reveals our character and the way in which we face the world. GYROTONIC equipment provides tremendous possibilities to assist us in becoming conscious of our body’s structure, and its correlated limitations. We gently and gradually achieve a new internal equilibrium, breathe new life and emotions into the body, and gain flexibility and strength. When one reduces muscular and emotional tension, the naturalness and the spontaneity of movement will reveal itself.”
Dr Alessandro Vanucci, Specialist in Neurology, Homeopathy and Psychotherapy from Italy
“I had an opportunity to re-examine a patient who had undergone knee surgery in my clinic, and was utterly surprised to see how good the knee itself and the musculature of the leg were. The muscular function of the surgically repaired knee was superior to the other side, and the abraded defect of the particular cartilage healed, which shows how effective your training program really is. I am very impressed with the results obtained so far.”
Dr Jurgen Toft, M.D. from Germany
“I believe that these coordinated movements have a beneficial prophylactic effect against low back weakness and pain, and that they can be successfully integrated into a physical rehabilitation program.”
Dr Frank Moore, M.D. Neurologist from New York
“This system is revolutionary and sets a new model for exercises rehabilitation in the health industry.”
Daniel S. Smith, Chiropractor from California
“GYROTONIC exercises work continuously on expansion and elongation, going far beyond any other method of exercising and stretching, however sophisticated it may be. There is a continuous involvement of the supportive musculature of the bone structure that gives you an erect and elegant posture. To create a whole with an economy of movement one achieves through simple or complex motions. Relaxed, yet always energetic!”
Dr Ello Mucho, M.D. Sports Medicine from Italy.
