Take the Wingmaster from a fascinating decoration on your wall that you occasionally use to an intrinsic part of your training sessions.

This workshop increases the vocabulary of exercises that are possible using the GYROTONIC® Wingmaster and the Pulley Tower. Trainers learn new ways to connect the Wingmaster to the Tower then take those movements and add total body connectivity and strength. Pushing and pulling, upper body strengthening exercises are combined with lower body strength movement, like squats and lunges. The exercises in this workshop can be applied to clients of various ability levels, from seniors with strength and/or mobility limitations to athletes seeking to increase total body conditioning and coordination.

A current GYROTONIC® Level 1 Trainer certification is the prerequisite for enrollment in GYROTONIC® Workshops. This Wingmaster Workshop does qualify for continuing education credit for GYROTONIC® & GYROKINESIS® Trainers.

Mike began his GYROTONIC® journey as a client in 1998. Mike was already a massage therapist and after only 5 sessions he realized that for people to really improve their bodies, they need to do some of the work themselves, so he decided to become a trainer. Working with Debra Rose and Nora Heiber, he became a certified instructor and certified on all the specialized equipment. He’s also a certified GYROKINESIS® instructor and has taken the foundation with Juliu Horvath and again with Domini Anne. He’s had the great pleasure of taking courses with eight different Master Trainers.
Mike first started developing the Wingmaster workshop when he was living in Atlanta. It began with the simple question “Hey, why are there eye hooks on the back of the Wingmaster?” So he began to explore. With his background as an NASM personal trainer, he took movement principles from traditional strength training and applied the GYROTONIC® touch to them to develop the Wingmaster workshop.
