BH Fitness Advanced Body Platform
Vibration platforms represent a global fitness revolution. In just over 30 minutes a week, you can keep in shape without leaving home. The effects of whole body vibration have already been scientifically tested, with early Vibration technology dating back to 1859.But it was the early days of the space race between USA and USSR that the Soviet Space Program found that vibration technology was a great way to combat decreased bone density in the astronauts.
In the 1990’s the technology made its way to Europe, and began to make its way into the fitness market. Thanks to Whole Body Vibration (WBV) you can work all muscle groups, not only those aligned longitudinally. WBV works like a wake up call to the body, by stimulating the musculoskeletal structure, the vibration starts exciting the tissue cells via the “Stretch Reflex”. This creates an overall increase of blood circulation throughout the entire body, even in places that struggle to get blood. The immediate effect can be felt as the muscles are able to work faster and more efficiently, therefore creating a more productive workout.
WHO IS USING WHOLE BODY VIBRATION?
Everyone from celebrities, to professional sports teams (Major League Baseball, National Football League), to professional athletes (Olympic Winners), to fitness buffs, to personal trainers, to physical rehabilitation centers and individual Health enthusiasts.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WHOLE BODY VIBRATION?
BETTER RESULTS IN LESS TIME
Because the WBV works at such a fast pace, the
muscle groups and stretch reflexes are able to train
to their full potential in a fraction of the time a normal workout would require.
BOOSTS METABOLISM TO BURN FAT FASTER: Increased muscle contractions at a higher speed increase metabolic rate.
INCREASES FLEXIBILITY AND CORE STRENGTH Consistent vibration encourages the body to rebalance itself, and stabilize the core muscles.
ADVANCE MUSCLE STRENGTH TO HELP ELIMINATE FAT CELLS
Just 10 minutes of WBV training can produce the
same result as 150 leg presses with 3 times the body
DECREASE STRESS THROUGH HORMONE BALANCE
Oxygen flowing to inactive parts of the musculoskeletal structure increases hormone flow.
BREAK YOUR FITNESS PLATEAU
WBV is consistently training muscles that you do not use on a daily basis, encouraging your body to also push to the next level.
WHY SHOULD I USE WHOLE BODY VIBRATION?
With solutions for all ages, lifestyles and physical abilities, WBV stimulates the body to create a reaction and response via vibration. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle
contractions between 25 to 50 times per second, enhancing overall performance. Vibration training offers a host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of other measurable outcomes including increased muscle strength and flexibility and decreased cellulite.
WHAT DO THE EXPERTS SAY?
“For athletes, WBV may provide a less time- consuming alternative to weight training or plyometrics, with lower levels of perceived exertion and tissue damage... Because WBV provides results comparable with more traditional training methods with a shorter time commitment and lower perceived exertion, it may also provide an environment that improves fitness and exercise compliance in the general population. ” Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research September 2009 .
