The GYROTONIC® Wingmaster Course
Make the Wingmaster an intrinsic part of your training.
The Wingmaster is an excellent tool for training clients at every level. For clients who are in a rehabilitative or corrective setting, the Wingmaster is an excellent tool for increasing strength through all the spinal ranges of motion. The ergonomic shape helps people with shoulder or chest limitations to add resistance without strain. But that doesn’t mean the Wingmaster’s usefulness is limited to corrective work.
The Wingmaster is a brilliant and very underutilized piece of GYROTONIC® equipment that often spends more time as a fascinating decoration on a studio’s wall than on our clients bodies… or in their hands.
What this course adds to training
Currently, how many exercises do you use the Wingmaster for on the Pulley Tower? I’m willing to guess 6 to 10.
Until now, the Wingmaster has been a great ergonomic stand-in for the straight pole that was all we had back in the day. But have you ever wondered, “Hey, why are there eye hooks on the back side of the Wingmaster?” I did wonder that. So I started exploring.
On the Leg Extension Unit, there are multiple exercises when we put the Wingmaster in our hands. Somehow, until now that hasn’t translated over to the Pulley Tower. Putting the Wingmaster in your hands and connecting it to the pulleys allows you to use the Wingmaster for upper body strengthening, with both pulling and pushing options.
All your favorite and familiar Gyrotonic movements are in the Wingmaster Course, like arches, curl, side bends and spirals. But, very unlike the LEU, you can get the bench out of the way and stand up! Once you stand up the possibilities for movement increase tremendously. Your movements become active total body exercises which can incorporate primal movements like squats and lunges.
