Whole Body Vibration
 

Vibration machines are all the rage among celebrities and top athletes. Their very livelihood depends on bodies that are in top condition, and they are too busy to spend hours sweating in a gym.

Whole Body Vibration Machines can work wonders for people of all ages and fitness levels. They can be used gently and are ideal if you are concerned about:

  • Recovery from surgery or injury
  • Bone loss (osteoporosis)
  • Regaining flexibility and balance
  • Just getting back to an exercise program

 

We have the Russian space program to thank for this remarkable invention. Russian scientists discovered that the rapid muscle and bone loss experienced by cosmonauts in their no-gravity environment can be prevented by the use of vibration equipment.

A Whole Body Vibration Machine is a vibrating base that you stand on and perform squats, push-ups and other exercises.  As the vibrations go through your body you experience muscle contraction.  During muscle contraction, there is a voluntary reflex and an involuntary reflex. During a whole body vibration exercise , an involuntary reflex muscle contraction occurs up to 50 times a second as opposed to a traditional exercise in which that same involuntary reflex muscle contraction only occurs once or twice a second. Thus, 10 minutes on the Zen Pro, with its vertical whole body vibration is comparable to about 60 minutes of doing the same exercise without vibration
