Known in the US, Europe, and Asia under the trademark GYROTONIC®, a unique system of exercise that incorporates movement principles from yoga, dance, Tai chi, gymnastics and swimming. Founder Juliu Horvath has created equipment and movements that simultaneously stretch and strengthen muscles and ligaments.
A gymnast, swimmer and ballet principal with the Romanian National Ballet, Juliu defected to the USA in the 1970’s where he developed a system of yoga (GYROKINESIS®) that expands a person’s potential. He then created powerful movements done on his unique handcrafted wooden equipment (GYROTONIC®) to make his style of yoga both more accessible and challenging to many different users abilities and needs.
While most weight-training machines are designed for linear expression, Juliu’s machines facilitate the circular movements originating in the joints. Exercises synchronized with yoga breathing help develop flexibility, joint articulation, stamina, balance, coordination, and increased blood circulation.
It is the ideal training programme for anyone interested in improving all aspects of their fitness including dancers, athletes, sports enthusiasts, children, the elderly and injury rehabilitation clients.

Pilates or GYROTONIC®…Which to choose?

At Revolution, you can choose to learn either one or both of these exciting mind-body techniques and we would love the chance to introduce them to you.
