Let’s start off by defining rebounding: Rebounding is basically jumping up and down on a mini-trampoline (or rebounder) for obvious health reasons, but you need to be in fairly good shape to start rebounding; you must have the strength, balance and coordination to gain all the benefits.
Many people own a rebounder and they love it. It feels good, it’s a healthy activity and if it helps dissolve toxins and get rid of fat, all the better. But in comparison, Whole Body Vibration exercise can be used by nearly everyone, regardless of age or physical condition, and it’s like rebounding on steroids! And that means quicker visible results.
On a Whole Body Vibration machine, you can gain all the same benefits of a rebounder, even more, and you’ll enjoy it too. A rebounder also takes a lot more effort and time. Simply standing on a Whole Body Vibration platform, the machine does all the work for you while your body gets all the benefits. These benefits are achieved much faster and 100% of the muscles and muscle groups in the body are activated and exercised all at the same time, as well as all the systems in the body being stimulated, even including the brain and eyes. So Whole Body Vibration is fast, it’s safe and it’s fun!
Whole Body Vibration exercise eliminates waste products, toxins, and fats from the cells by keeping our lymphatic system fully functioning and healthy. Most people don’t know that the lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump like the heart to move wastes in the system around for disposal. Lymph flow can be rather slow because there is no equivalent of the blood stream’s ‘cardiac pump’ to stimulate that flow. Lymph flow is mainly affected by gravity, and the primary force and action within the lymphatic system is dependent on muscular activity (muscle contractions). A rebounder produces these muscle contractions every time you bounce, but the low-impact, oscillating platform of a Whole Body Vibration machine produces the same reaction up to 30 times per second.
In Ann Louse Gittleman’s book, “The Fat Flush Plan”, she actually refers to the lymphatic system as the body’s “built in fat processing plant”. She recommends people either bounce up and down on a rebounder or walk briskly for 20 or 30 minutes a day. But when the book was written in 2002, I doubt she had ever heard about Whole Body Vibration exercise machines.
The additional benefits of Whole Body Vibration exercise are many when compared to rebounding. On a Whole Body Vibration machine you can vary the intensity with a variety of user settings, plus you can perform different postures and positions not possible on a rebounder. By assuming these different combinations of poses and postures you can target specific areas of your body making a Whole Body Vibration machine an extremely powerful tool for achieving optimal health and fitness.
