Whole Body Vibration machines are one of the hottest innovations in fitness today. Vibration trainers are used in elite training operations for sports teams and in top medical facilities around the world. They were shown on the Tyra Banks Show are a growing rapidly in popularity. Among the units available, the VibraTrim models are elite machines.
Elite athletes and sports pros value acceleration training for fast, strong muscle action and speed of response. A WBV machine creates vibrations in the base that travel directly into the body. Research has shown this to be a very effective acceleration training method because it automatically and repeatedly produces a stretch reflex in your muscles.
WBV originated when Soviet scientists looked for a cure for bone density loss and muscle atrophy in Russian cosmonauts. It was refined there and in Europe for use with injured athletes and others. In the April 13, 2007 issue of Sports Illustrated, Matt Hasselbeck of the Seahawks credited a WBV device with helping him lose weight during a diet and training program.
How does Whole Body Vibration work?
WBV creates many vibrations in your body every second. This causes muscles to respond with an automatic strech reflex. At frequencies higher than 15Hz you can get intense contractions without discomfort for real results. At lower frequencies your body can be refreshed and relaxed.
