9 Reasons Why You Should Own a Vibration Machine

15th May 2013 by stefanie


1. You want to get stronger

Whole body vibration is a method of resistance training that increases the gravitational loading on our body to build muscle.

In as little as 10 minutes a day, a few times a week, study participants experienced decreased hip circumference, and increased muscle strength and power (1).

2. You want to build stronger bones

Whole body vibration has long been used with astronauts to regenerate the bone and muscle loss that occurs with prolonged space missions (2).

As your muscle fibers stretch and reflex via Whole Body Vibration exercise, the muscles pull on the tendons attaching the muscles to the bone. The acceleration produced by the platform determines the force at which our muscles must respond (3), and bone responds to this stress by reinforcing itself, becoming thicker, stronger, more resistant to fracture (4,5).

3. You want to increase flexibility

The same stretch reflex used by Whole Body Vibration to strengthen the muscles and bones also conditions the muscles to be more pliant, increasing flexibility and agility (6).

4. You need a quick way to warm up before a workout

Whole Body Vibration is clinically supported to create a warming effect in muscles and joints faster and easier than other types of exercise, which makes it an excellent warm up before a workout (7).

When you stand or place other parts of your body on the [WBV] moving platform, the repetitive upward movement of the platform sends pulses of kinetic energy up through your body. Some of the energy is absorbed by the tissues of your body and is converted to heat. Muscles and joints feel and operate better when they are warm.

5. You enjoy a relaxing massage

A whole body vibration machine provides a calming massage for tense or sore muscles, and is great for reducing muscle soreness after exercise (8). You can benefit from the myofascial release throughout your whole body by standing on the platform or by resting your sore legs directly on the platform surface.

6. You like short workouts

One of the most common barriers to working out more frequently is lack of time. It can be difficult to fit in an hour of exercise every day.

The recommended exercise schedule with a whole body vibration machine is 10 minutes a day, three times a week. This schedule, when used in conjunction with cardiovascular training and healthy eating habits, can help improve body mass ratios without spending long hours at the gym.

7. It’s convenient

Exercise adherence increases with convenience. If you need to drive out of your way for the gym, or if your home gym equipment is bulky, takes up a lot of room, or needs to be set up and broken down for every workout, working out won’t be convenient and the likelihood that you will stick to your workouts is low.

A whole body vibration machine fits into the corner of a room, and doesn’t have to be set up and broken down every time. Simply step onto the platform and turn it on. Research has shown significantly higher adherence rates to WBV vs. traditional forms of exercise (1).

8. You’ll be the envy of all your friends

Chances are, someone you know has heard of whole body vibration and wants to try it, but hasn’t come across the opportunity. You can provide the opportunity to all your friends to try this technology for the first time. You could be the reason they buy their own machine and start their own journey to better health.

9. It’s affordable

HyperVibe, creators of one of the best values in performance and price for all whole body vibration machines, offers financing for their machines. For as little as $18 a week you could be the first person you know to own a whole body vibration machine and be on your way to a stronger, more flexible, more relaxed, healthier life in only 10 minutes a day.
