The GravityFit Exercise Model was developed by world renowned Professor of Physiotherapy, Carolyn Richardson (PhD) - the former leader of the acclaimed research team that introduced the concept of "Core Stability".
With two functionally different muscle groups in the body in relation to Gravity ("Movement" and "Gravity" muscles), Professor Richardson found the addition of simple exercise that promotes healthy joints and bones and deals with the forces of gravity on the body can complement cardiovascular exercise and play a major role in injury prevention, enhanced athletic performance and overall health and well-being.
This insight wasn't an overnight revelation, but the product of extensive research into how the human body works and how its muscle systems respond to, and deal with, environmental and lifestyle changes.
Professor Carolyn Richardson has been at the forefront of musculoskeletal research for over 30 years. With studies involving subjects at zero gravity and those dealing with the rigours of professional sport, the findings of her decades of work tell a fascinating story.
