What professional dancers discovered years ago, the NFL, NBA, MLB, PGA and more are discovering now – that Pilates and GYROTONIC® are the best forms of conditioning a top-tier athlete can participate in.
Pilates' integration of the trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdle and emphasis on proper breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment and smooth flowing movement allow athletes to access each part of the body individually, and become familiar with the functional mechanics.
The specialized GYROTONIC® equipment and method allows for 3-dimensional, full-range of motion. The system can be set up to simulate movements applied to any sport or other modality imagineable, including GOLF, TENNIS, BASEBALL, SWIMMING, BOXING and the many forms of DANCE. Athletes find that the circular training that GYROTONIC® method provides keeps them strong and limber in their full range of motion while having a focus on the spine and joints, which take the most pressure. Static movements and exercises cannot fully encompass what an athletes body needs.
With Pilates and GYROTONIC® training, athletes can hit the ball farther, run faster, jump higher – and they do it with less risk of pain or injury to themselves.
