"Turn Your Life Around - LITERALLY!"
The Tornado360 is a portable Exercise device that
This is achieved by rotation of the body using the SpinalCore® system of exercises.
The Tornado360 is the brainchild of Allan Menezes, the pioneer of the Pilates and Gyrotonic Methods in Australia and the southern hemisphere.
He is also the founder of the Pilates Institute of Australasia which conducts on-line and face-to-face training courses and workshops.
The Tornado has a Registered Design Patent Certificate and is patent pending.
Tornado and SpinalCore® are Registered Trademarks of Tornado Health and Allan Menezes
The (patent-pending) Tornado360 was developed by Allan Menezes, Australia’s Pilates Pioneer, in during Sydney’s Covid lockdown of October 2021. It has since undergone various design adaptations to create a unique, portable device that rotates the spine, arms, legs and core while toning all these muscles at the same time.
It is perfect for home use by the stay-at-home mum or dad, as well as for athletes wishing to improve their athletic performance. As it is a NO-IMPACT item, it is also perfect for physical rehabilitation under correct supervision.

The toe/foot stoppers are handy when you are placing your feet on the tornado platforms so they don't slip off. They cannot be added later to the Tornado 100. Does NOT include Stirring Handles. For the Tornado with ALL attachments, purchase the Tornado360
The Stirring Handles ($75/pair) allow you to better use the arms for more challenging routines for a stronger core than pilates. Great to improve fitness levels. The top of the handle, which swivels 360 around the bottom section, has a soft pad for more comfort when holding it in the palm of your hand.
My clients absolutely love the Tornado because it moves their bodies in ways they have never moved before. The Tornado is very beneficial for my rehab clients, as it gives high quality stretch, rotation and movement to all areas of the body, especially the spine.
The Tornado360 and the Tornado240 (Wall Tornado) are both designed to mobilise all the joints of the spine. Your spine is made up of 24 Vertebrae (7 Cervical (neck), 12 Thoracic Mid Back) 5 Lumbar (Lower Back) and the Sacrum (4-5 fused vertebrae) at the base.
Your spinal column is just that – it is a column of vertebrae, discs and muscles that keep you upright.
The Famous Joe Pilates once said, “You are only as old as your spine”.
Keeping your spine supple also keeps the nerves, which emanate from your spine to all parts of your body, healthy. The Tornado360 is the PERFECT tool for this.
There are many conditions that may affect the spine and create discomfort and pain. Some of these minor ones include scoliosis, hyper-lordosis, kyphosis, etc that lead to poor posture. Simply tight muscles will also lead to poor posture such as rounded shoulders and sway back (constantly texting on phones or standing with the hands on the hips). This can create pain and ongoing discomfort especially in the neck and lower back. Most of these are formed from habits.
The solution to many of these is to seek treatment from physical therapists (physiotherapists) or other practitioners who will massage, manipulate, prod and poke to alleviate the issue. These treatments are great for the acute stages of the problem. But what about the ongoing ‘treatment’ post-acute?
Movement is the best solution to stiffness of the spine’s post-acute recovery. Linear movements are great as a starter (stomach crunches, back extensions) but too many of these create a muscle memory of that movement. In order to stay flexible and keep a healthy spine, rotation is far more important than linear movements. See This Article:
To move the spine in a rotational manner can involve any of the following: Lying on the floor taking the legs or torso side to side; Sitting upright and turning the torso by looking over the shoulders; Using a twister disc with limited range of motion; or even getting someone to twist you further that your body is capable (not recommended!)
This is where the NO-IMPACT Tornado360 is the best piece of equipment on the market today to manage this challenge, safely and effectively.
