GRAVITYGravity training

MISSION VALLEY & Toby Wells

Maximize the time, efficiency and
effect of your workouts!

What is GRAVITY?

Take a look inside Studio 3 at Mission Valley and you'll see GRAVITY Training System machines or a GRAVITY Group Training class in action.

The GTS has a rolling glide board, various resistance levels and a dynamic cable pulley system that allow you to use your own body weight against the pull of gravity. All of this means you can do more than 250 different exercises! GRAVITY offers an efficient workout by engaging all major muscle groups for strength and endurance training, stretching, Pilates, and core training in every exercise.

Benefits

  • Body sculpting – recruits core abdominal and back muscles in every exercise
  • Increased strength & endurance
  • Improved coordination & balance
  • Weight & inch loss, improved BMI
  • Increased metabolism
  • Enhanced functional performance of daily activities & athleticism
  • Cardio-endurance gains during resistance training
  • Low impact & complete back support
