GYROTONIC® Training in Oakland, CA
A great location in the Adam's Point district of Oakland, conveniently located on Grand Ave, just one block from Lake Merritt, The Working Body is a great one stop spot for your fitness and well being needs. Aside from GYROTONIC® training, there is also chiropractic, acupuncture, massage therapy and group fitness classes like yoga and TRX.
The GYROTONIC® equipment at The Working BodyFor all private, semi-private and group class Gyrotonic training at the Working Body, we have five Gyrotonic pulley tower handle units. The Pulley Tower Unit is the primary piece of Gyrotonic equipment and the possibilities on it are nearly endless.
We work the entire body with the pulley tower and in an incredibly wide variety of seating, laying, kneeling and standing positions. While essentially every exercise in the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® incorporates the total body, each family of exercises emphasize one particular segment. For example, the handle series emphasizes spinal mobility while the hamstring series emphasizes the hips, knees and ankles.
With the enormous range of possibilities with the pulley tower, it's possible to work with people at any level of strength and fitness. Because much of the work is seated, it is an excellent tool for rehabilitative work. When we take the bench away, we can work on total body, athletic style stretching and strengthening.
The GYROTONIC® Archway is the ultimate tool for core strength.The Archway is my favorite piece of exercise equipment in the world. There is nothing like it. Except for the propeller, it has no moving parts, and yet it will challenge you like nothing else will.
You drape yourself over the Archway in so many different ways that it not only challenges your core, it these exercises challenge your proprioception, which is the awareness of your body in space. There isn't a piece of exercise equipment I know of that that puts you in so many different and frequently unusual positions. Add to that the complex but refined movements that the Gyrotonic system uses and you will learn your body and how to move it in a way you'd never have thought of otherwise.
First time client? I've got a special for you.
If you're new to training with me, I like to give you a chance to try me out without a big commitment. There is a small commitment, after all, Rome wasn't built in a day. Three sessions is enough for you to know if you think I'm the guy to help you reach your goals, but not too so many sessions that you're stuck with someone you don't want to work with! (Hey, it does happen. You can't be all things to all people.)
