What our clients talking about our products
I am 67 years old and a keen golfer. Allan began to help improve my golf swing by freeing up my hips and back using a variety of exercises and more recently with his invention, the Tornado-360. The Tornado has really helped improve my swing, particularly my rotation through the ball. This has resulted in the extra distance and better accuracy off the tee. My hips no longer trouble me after a round as they once did. I have never felt so comfortable in my swing, thanks to the Tornado-360.
After using the Tornado for only a few minutes I could feel a stretch in my lower back that I couldn't achieve with the reformer. Your range of motion goes way above and beyond what you can imagine. Using all of your muscles in a different way. This really compliments pilates and results can be felt right after your first use. I highly recommend this to everyone.

I’ve had back pain issues for a long time. I went to a physio who combined some massages and gave me a series of exercises. It worked but for a short time, hence more and more sessions. After using the Tornado exercises my back pain is gradually waning away. I highly recommend it. It is easy to use and the pain is relieved straight away.
Thank you for suggesting my trying the Tornado 101, I have to say it has been amazing, my lower back has stopped with the chronic pain, as well as my hips. It has also helped with my sleeping pattern, as I seem to be more relaxed if I use it before bed time. This has been an absolute game changer, thank you again.

The addition of the Tornado as part of my regular routine has helped significantly. Not only has it helped my overall fitness, mobility and strength, it has also markedly relieved tension in my neck and shoulders, subsequently alleviating (severe) migraine symptoms. The versatility of the Tornado means that I can attack postural issues at a variety of points: hips, core, upper back, shoulders and my neck. Highly recommended!.
Two years ago I started classes in the Menezes Method. At the start of this year Allan introduced me to his invention, the Tornado-360. I was so impressed that I bought one for home. The 'stirring handle' was added so I could work my shoulders for flexibility, mobility and strength, all of which have improved my golf swing. After 3 months I am now hitting the ball 10+ meters further. I've always had an ambition to win the President's Cup at my Golf Club and last week I was knocked out on the 18th hole by the Club Champion.
Look out next year!! THANK YOU TORNADO and Allan!
I have severe scoliosis and suffer ongoing challenges with back pain. Allan Menezes has been helping me manage this condition for over twenty years and succeed in avoiding the ever-threatening surgery that hovers over me. His recent invention, The Tornado, has been of great help in freeing up the tendons and muscles in my strangely shaped back, and I’ve been amazed at how much my range of pain-free movement has increased with regular use of this unique piece of equipment.
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, and they feel the benefits instantly. It also gives my advanced clients a fantastic challenge and has greatly improved their pilates gains. The Tornado is an integral part of my pilates sessions and my clients really look forward to using it.

As an ex-athlete, I experienced different types of trainings that left you exhausted and in pain. That's why I was a bit sceptical when I tried Tornado for the first time because it felt easy and smooth. But I kept going and it was definitely worth it. My long term back pain has gradually diminished. The Tornado not only gives me an amazing stretch in my lower back and shoulders but also flexibility and strength. My favourite moves are stirring, lunges and core exercises. Highly recommended.
Thank you Allan.
