In many gyms and spas throughout North America members are noticing a few new pieces of equipment in the cardio or weight-lifting section. With a bit of enquiry you find out the name of this new gym equipment…a Whole Body Vibration machine.
At first glance one of these machines might leave you feeling somewhat intimidated, but don’t worry. This article will brief you on what Whole Body Vibration equipment is, and how it can help you tone your body, build muscle, increase bone mass, eliminate cellulite and rid yourself of unwanted fat, fast.
A Whole Body Vibration machine is exactly what its name designates; a machine with a platform that produces small and frequent vibrations to make your whole body gently vibrate. Whole Body Vibration machines generally look like some kind of massive weight scale, but with a larger platform to stand on. When you stand on this area, you’ll experience a total body vibration. If you place just a single foot on it, you’ll isolate the vibration to that leg, and so on and so forth with other targeted areas of the body.
Whole Body Vibration machines represent a revolutionary technology for the fitness world ever since science has proven that these machines cause your muscles to work up to 40 times harder when doing normal exercises. For example, if you’re a believer in the triceps-sculpting push-up, then doing one on a Whole Body Vibration plate will give you a much tougher workout. And as any fitness fanatic knows, a tougher workout directly translates into strengthening muscle and faster weight loss results. Additionally, only ten minutes a day is equivalent to an hour or more of most conventional exercises.
To get started on a Whole Body Vibration machine, try placing one foot on the vibrating plate and stretching into a deep lunge, do slow squats or check out push-ups with your hands planted firmly on the platform. If the vibrations make you dizzy or make it hard for you to concentrate, take a water break until you get your bearings. There are all sorts of postures and positions you can assume on the machine to target specific areas of concern. With repeated use, you’ll quickly and easily get used to how the machine works and all its different applications.
One of the most attractive features of Whole Body Vibration is that just by simply standing on this machine, you will oxygenate your blood, increase your circulation, boost your lymphatic system and give your body a great detoxification! This results in speeding up your metabolism and increasing muscle development. This is the ultimate solution to ridding yourself of tough fat folds, those “love handles” and that “spare tire”!
