The GYROTONIC® method is a movement method that gently works the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength though rhythmic, flowing movement sequuences. It is an orginal, and unique movement practice with has roots in Yoda, Tai Chi, gymnastics, and dance. The GYROTONIC method is practiced in goup or private classes under the instruction of a certified GYROTONIC Trainer, and can also be practiced at home with a mat, chair, and instructional GYROTONIC dvds.
GYROTONIC classes are 60 – 90 minutes long. Each class begins on a chair with a gentle warm up sequence to awaken the senses, and stimulate the nervous system. This is followed by a series of fluid spinal motions which increase the range of motion, and prepare the body to explore more complex movements with agility, and ease. Class continues on the floor with exercises that expand on the spinal motions, gradually adding more complex sequences, incorporating more movements of the hips, shoulders, hands and feet. The floor exercises are followed by a rhythmic standing sequence that incorporates balance, and cardiovascular exercises; then end with a calming, unwinding sequence designed to prepare the body and mind to reintegrate with the every day world.
The methodology involves controlled exercises that will also improve hand-eye coordination, balance, concentration and development of muscle tone – all necessary to maximize one’s performance on the golf course. It has multiple exercises for every part of the body and each movement involved in the golf swing. This system will help you increase and strengthen your hip and shoulder turn, improve your cardiovascular fitness and make the whole body more open and
flexible. With GYROTONIC training, golfers will be able to play more consistently and play without the fear of injury. It helps all golfers improve faster, and ultimately enjoy the game more. The benefits of GYROTONIC training for golfers :
- – Ability to swing the club faster
- – Increase drive distance
- – Improve your ball-striking ability
- – Ability to control trajectory
- – Better contact and directional control of the ball
- – Limiting potential injury
“For the past 30 years, I have had one goal – to help each of my students reach their full potential in the game of golf. But few golfers ever achieve a level of success equal to the amount of hard work they’ve put into their game. Often, their lack of success is the result of physical limitations preventing them from performing at a level required to excel. In my experience, conventional strength training, core conditioning, and other fitness disciplines did not result in students achieving their perfect golf swing. These traditional methods are one-dimensional and do not address the combination of abilities needed for the correct golf swing. The search to help my students achieve their goals finally led me to Juliu Horvath and GYROTONIC methodology. GYROTONIC training gives golfers the best combination of strength, flexibility, and speed – all essential to developing the golf swing to its full potential. When GYROTONIC training is combined with my unique golf training system, clients of all ages have achieved unbelievable success! My research and experience have brought me to the realization that GYROTONIC methodology is the perfect compliment for golf.“
