Many benefits come with the territory of whole body vibration.
Muscles Rapid strength gains have been uncovered in medical research. This vibration platform vibrates up and down, side to side, up to 50 times per second. This forces the muscles to create “fast twitch motion”, creating stability. Scientific studies have compared a 10-minute work out on the whole body vibration platform to be equivalent to a 1-hour work out the conventional way.
Weight Loss Vibration platforms work out the muscles just like a normal work out, but in an accelerated amount of time. This means more muscle mass than if a person were to not exercise at all. At rest, muscle still burns fat, faster than fat burning fat at rest. If you are a person who exercises regularly, or a person who has a physical hindrance, the vibration platform can help you increase your muscle mass, thus allowing you to have a high resting metabolism, burning fat even while sitting!
Firming and Toning Losing weight does not mean only losing fat. The body does not discriminate between fat and muscle. Therefore, if you should lose weight, you will also lose a small percentage of lean muscle, which is the most difficult to replenish. To replace this lean muscle, one must do resistance exercise. This resistance comes from your body resisting the torque this vibration platform exerts on your body.
Beauty Regime This skin is the largest organ in the human body. But it is not the only organ that requires oxygenation. Whole body vibration systems improve and increase whole body oxygenation. Circulation improvements carry vital nutrients to all organs in the body and assist in flushing the body of all toxins. This increased oxygenation also improves collagen production that results in firmer, smoother skin and a reduction in cellulite.
Bone Density Bone density decreases as we age. Research has shown women over the age of 39, especially post-menopausal, lost bone density twice as quickly as men. Research has shown that maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle helps maintain bone density.
Rehabilitation Purposes Whole body vibration has been proven to help people with limited motion. This vibration system is very easy on joints allowing people with knee problems or joint issues to have a safe work out. People suffering from fibromyalgia, who have experienced spinal cord injuries or have back pain can all experience a positive impact when utilizing the vibration platform. Vibration exercise as a rehabilitation tool has seen the increase in blood flow cause an increase in human growth hormone which has been shown to repair and regenerate soft tissue.
