Whole Body Vibration machines are a great exercise option for anyone who:
- Has previous injuries or mobility issues which prevent them from enjoying conventional exercise;
- Is time-pressed and wants to condense a long workout into a 10-minute session;
- Wants an exercise routine that is easy and feels good to do.
How Does It Work?
Whole Body Vibration is about three things - creating movement, reactions and gravity.
The machine itself creates movement in the body by moving up to 30 times a second. It is also designed to create reactions. When you stand on the plate of a Vibration Machine, the plate moves in a see-saw type motion, bringing your body slightly out of balance.
Without us even being aware of it, when we are in motion our muscles are always reacting to keep us upright and balanced. This natural reaction is what's being employed with WBV. By keeping the body constantly a little out of balance, these muscles have to keep working. Every time the plate moves, your body has no choice but to respond to the challenge it is offered - rebalancing you on the plate by engaging and disengaging (contracting and relaxing) several times a second.
As the machine accelerates, it pushes up against your body and creates an extra force - known as a g-force.
What Can Whole-Body Vibration Do for You?
- Accelerated Weight Loss
Whole Body Vibration is great for stimulating those big fat-burning muscles and combining Whole Body Vibration with walking or any cardio workout and a sensible eating plan will give even faster results.
- Strength Building
Whole Body Vibration is one of the most studied exercise methods right now, particularly in the areas of explosive strength and rehabilitation.
Strength, flexibility and balance – that’s what you need for a great golf game. Vibration has been particularly highlighted in the scientific community in the area of explosive strength gains. Flexibility allows for an increased range of motion - in plain terms, you can reach back further and follow through farther, to make your swing longer. Vibration gives you the stability needed for accuracy. Use it before your game as a warm-up or during the off-season to maintain strength.
- Beauty and Cellulite Reduction
Whole Body Vibration actually helps to reduce cellulite. Studies show a significant reduction of cellulite with just 3 sessions a week.
Whole Body Vibration works your muscles by gently forcing the muscle to contract and release. This lengthens the fibers of your muscles as the muscle let go.
- Warming Up And Cooling Down
It may normally take about 30 minutes of stretching to get your muscles and joints limber. As little as 5 minutes of Vibration may give similar results.
- Low Impact Workouts
One of the other great features of Whole Body Vibration is that it's low impact, meaning it's easy on your joints.
Who Can Use Whole Body Vibration?
Just about everyone can and should use Whole Body Vibration. Since it is a low impact way to gain strength and flexibility, it is often used for the rehabilitation of injuries. In particular, athletes, overweight people, office workers, people who cannot find the time to exercise and patients requiring rehabilitative therapy.
*Note: If you are pregnant, have a pacemaker, any other implant or have had recent surgery or have any medical condition whatsoever, please do not undertake Whole Body Vibration without the approval of your medical practitioner.
