Pilates simulators: gravity

Pilates training simulator is an unstable platform with a stand for weighting, resembling the Smith bench known to all. In gravity, the degree of load directly depends on the person: the heavier it is, the harder it is.

Full name - Gravity Training System (GTS). GTS - a simulator with unlimited possibilities. You can exercise on it lying on your back, on your stomach, on your side, sitting, standing, on your knees, etc. Depending on the type and purpose of the training, various accessories are used: stops and loops for arms or legs, as well as additional weights, if own body weight is insufficient.

In contrast to the large-size reformer and the Cadillac, gravity takes up little space. For comparison: the length of the Cadillac is 2.5 m, and gravity is only 1.2 m. The simulator readily buys sports clubs for both individual and group classes, and many customers even order it home. “On gravity, you can perform any exercises on the Pilates system,” explains the club's instructor Dr. Loder Tatiana Chesalina. For example, roll-up, that is, unwinding, which leads to the gradual straightening of the vertebrae, is easier to do on an inclined plane. "

The simulator is the know-how of the American company efi Sports Medicine, engaged in the production of equipment for gyms since 1974. The first modern gravity rolled off the assembly line in April of 2003. According to official data, now in the US alone, the simulator is in 14,000 institutions: sports clubs, rehabilitation centers, schools, etc. In Russia, only the most advanced fitness centers are equipped with them.
