FULL BODY VIBRATION PLATFORM
WHOLE BODY VIBRATION 10 MINUTES = 1 HOUR IN GYM!
NASA TECHNOLOGY - PRODUCES OUTSTANDING RESULTS !
Vibration Platforms are becoming increasingly popular in gyms around the nation. Praised by celebrities and even tested by NASA, the idea behind vibration plates is that you can tone and define muscles faster by using vibration. NASA has studied vibration plates as a possible antidote to the muscle atrophy and bone loss that astronauts suffer while in space. Advocates of vibration plates also love them because they claim to reduce workout time by two thirds, a welcome concept to folks who struggle to fit workouts into already-busy days.

NO SWEAT WORKOUT! IF YOU CAN STAND - YOU CAN EXERCISE! NO MORE EXCUSES!
BUT IS ALL THIS JUST HYPE? DO VIBRATION PLATFORMS REALLY WORK? STUDY SAYS - YES.
A 2009 study by the University of Antwerp in Belgium and Artesis University College seems to show that vibration plates do work. In the study, obese women who followed a healthy diet and exercised using vibration plates lost more weight long-term, including more hard-to-lose belly fat, than women who followed a healthy diet and conventional exercise.
The group who used vibration plates performed basic moves such as squats, push-ups, calf rises, lunges and ab crunches on the machines. They performed each type of 10 exercises for 30 seconds each, and gradually built up to 60 seconds each.
They followed this program for 6 months. The group using vibration plates lost an average of 11% of their body weight, compared with a 7% body weight loss for the group using conventional exercise methods. The group using vibration plates also lost the most belly fat. Additionally, the group using vibration plates maintained their weight loss 6 months after the initial 6-month study ended.

OUR VIBRATION PLATFORM vibrates in 3 directions, 20 to 50 times per second. It increases G-forces on the body, and its manufacturer claims that its use increases the effectiveness of exercises performed while standing on it. Vibration platform workouts are not aerobic. They are similar to weightlifting without using weights.
Although most of the contraindications are precautions, there are some ‘absolute’ ones. Pregnancy, active cancer, recent fracture, acute inflammation, current blood clots, and recent surgery are some that you want to avoid vibration plate exercises with. Pacemaker used to be an absolute contraindication. However, there are no ‘electrical’ impulses from a vibration platform. Hence, there is no need to deny someone with a pacemaker the benefits of strength and flexibility through vibration therapy. Best thing to do is discuss with the patient’s doctor or specialist on what you are looking to achieve. If the women became pregnant while undergoing vibration training it will not cause any adverse effects however we simply will stop vibration training until they have their baby.
As with any type of exercise, consulting a health or fitness professional is always a good idea before you begin something new, especially when there are vibration plate contraindications.
