Total Gym® Expands their Successful GRAVITY Education Curriculum

New Educational Workshops Boost GRAVITY Programming


Summary: Total Gym® introduces new program workshops to expand on their successful GRAVITY education curriculum.


SAN DIEGO—March, 2013 — Total Gym introduces new program workshops to expand on their successful GRAVITY education curriculum, which focuses on functional bodyweight training using the company’s popular incline trainers in the small group setting.

The workshops provide fitness facilities a selection of goal-oriented training programs and marketing tools to enhance member participation and client satisfaction while expanding revenue options with GRAVITY Programming. Additionally, the workshops motivate GRAVITY Instructors by up-skilling and adding diversity to the repertoire of GRAVITY programs they lead. 

Led by GRAVITY Master Trainers, instructors will learn how to implement a 6-12 week progressive GRAVITY fitness program from its first week through completion; providing them the program structure and the necessary training options and skills needed to help members reach their goals. Workshop attendees will also earn continuing education credits (CECs).

To support facilities in creating variety for their members, programs offered in the GRAVITY workshops are designed to appropriately challenge all fitness levels, from the active ageing to elite conditioned athletes. These programs encompass a range of styles from high-intensity boot camps to choreographed Pilates that will inspire facility members to sign-up and motivate trainers to put Total Gym equipment to maximum use.

“We are to supporting and building upon our GRAVITY Foundation course, which teaches trainers how to create fun and effective small-group workouts on a Total Gym incline bodyweight trainer,” said Jesse Campanaro, President of Total Gym Commercial. “These workshops allow GRAVITY facilities to enhance and improve the programs that they offer and the skills of their GRAVITY instructors.”

Total Gym will be offering new workshops and programs throughout the year with the first three launching in March, 2013. These programs will include:

GRAVITY Long & Lean Workshop: This program is designed to enhance mobility and stability by combining strength and stretching for a workout that builds muscular endurance while increasing flexibility.

GRAVITY High Voltage Circuitry Workshop: A circuit workout designed to build the musculoskeletal system through three planes of motion working the trunk, shoulders and legs.

GRAVITY Burn Under Full Force Workshop: A 6-day/week training program that produces exceptionally quick results for ultimate body transformation by focusing on individual workouts for strength, cardio and active rest.


GRAVITY is the Total Gym® premier fitness and wellness program that optimizes instructor resources and expertise with affordable, time efficient semi-private and small group training for clients.

Developed in 2003, the GRAVITYSystem®, recognized for its functional bodyweight training on the Total Gym, is utilized in health clubs and rehabilitation facilities for strength and endurance training, Pilates and for post-rehab conditioning.

GRAVITY Training® uniquely engages the five main exercise components—muscular strength and endurance, cardio, flexibility and inch loss. The Total Gym signature rolling glideboard and dynamic cable-pulley system requires users to recruit core muscles in nearly all 250 functional exercises. Ease of use encourages participants to move quickly from one exercise to the next by simply changing body positions.
