The Wun-Jo Trainer, along with the Flo-Dynamics Movement System© is one of the most unique, advanced and effective professional exercise training approaches available today. And – it’s fun!
Years of development and work with the Flo-Dynamics Movement System and its companion Wun-Jo Trainer have convinced us and many other professionals in the medical, exercise and sports related fields that what we discovered and cultivated is truly a revolutionary breakthrough in the health and fitness training realm.
As you experience the Wun-Jo Movement System you will easily begin to understand and appreciate how the device and system resonate with the basic fluid nature of our body and awaken our ability to move in a more natural and more fully integrated manner.
Why try to mimic water?
Well the answer is obvious and a most fundamental one. The human body is a water machine, designed primarily to run on water and minerals. Every life giving and healing process that happens inside our body… happens with water. In just the last decade, medical science has begun to focus more on the tremendous healing ability our body has and how much that ability depends on water. Our body instinctively knows how and strives to sustain youthful longevity, and in its every effort… water is the key.
In the same manner, using the Wun-Jo Trainer is as natural as crawling, walking, running and swimming. It is instinctual and as such very easy to learn and imparts its positive effects to the body practically automatically.
Since our bodies are about 75% water, our natural movements depend on the flexibility and strength of our joints and muscles which in turn depend on being hydrated and lubricated with water. Thus, as we are made up of water, it is only natural that we should seek to move like it.
Across a spectrum of applications: guided by the Flo-Dynamics Movement System
With regular use, the trainer and movement system combine to provide a most unique and effective training tool appropriate for a broad range of sports, fitness and rehabilitation needs.
The exercises associated with the Wun-Jo Trainer are guided by the Flo-Dynamics Movement System and are made up of interweaving variable vertical, diagonal and horizontal planes of linear and circular motion. The articulations of the limbs and torso are patterned on the body’s natural movement based on “cross-crawl motion” like the movement one does when crawling, climbing, swimming, walking, running, etc. where the arms and legs automatically coordinate and move simultaneously with each diagonally opposed limb balancing and reinforcing the action of the other.
Science and experience has proven that these cross-crawl movements are integral to the development of brain function during early childhood development. Their therapeutic value has been confirmed clinically as well. Additionally, they are often used along with other modalities in the treatment of physical impairment and learning disabilities, because of their ability to stimulate bi-hemispheric brain processing.
By accentuating the use of multi-dimensional cross-crawl patterning, use of the Wun-Jo Trainer naturally stimulates left and right brain function. The effect of this stimulation awakens and develops latent abilities and capacities inherent in our physical structure and makeup, supporting high-level performance.
