Description
 
Many gyms now feature these amazing devices that provide isometric anaerobic exercise through the use of whole body vibration that is equivalent to a weight lifting session at the gym or a four-mile jog in just 10 minutes.

Whole Body Vibration is also used by numerous sports teams and celebrities such as Julie Andrews, Madonna, Lance Armstrong and Jane Fonda.

The Body Vibe is the perfect answer to the housebound, the elderly, chronically ill, and yes even those that are either lazy or too busy who find it difficult to exercise.

The benefits of the Body Vibe are too numerous to list, but please take the time to explore how effective this whole body vibration device can be in increasing your physical activity.


What Others Have Said About Whole Body Vibration



Dr. Keith Deorio: "Increased blood flow combined with mechanical cell vibration leads to improved distribution and bio-availability of vitamins, nutrients, herbs and minerals. Total body vibration causes the muscles, lymph and cells of the body to contract and relax rhythmically, aiding detoxification as well as nutrition. I also believe it helps balance the body's energy meridians so important in many health practices."

Enos Seligman, Olympic Trainer: "For more than two decades the Russians have used vibration therapy for its profound enhancement of muscle strength, performance, conditioning, overall health and wellness, in addition to its integral role in rehabilitating injuries and improving the quality of life for those suffering from injuries or debilitating conditions such as multiple sclerosis or arthritis." (Note: It was the Russian space program that turned to whole body vibration therapy to combat the degenerating effects of zero gravity on bone and muscle tissue with great results.)

Chris Verna, Trainer: "Whole body vibrational therapy works from the inside out without the strenuous physical rigors of conventional training methods, activating muscle tissue conventional fitness machines overlook. It is incredible in its ability to increase flexibility, strength and critical blood flow while reducing joint discomfort. I'm amazed at how effective it has been for my arthritis clients who are severely limited in terms of available fitness alternatives."


Research Studies



The use of controlled whole body vibration can and does improve the elements of fall risk such as gait, balance, timed up and go test and a considerable improvement in quality of life as measured by Medical Outcomes Study. (Controlled Whole Body Vibration To Decrease Fall Risk And Improve Health Related Quality Of Life Of Nursing Home Residents. Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 2005 Feb:86(2):303-7)

Patients showed an increase in their weight-shifting speed without any adverse effects. It is concluded that whole-body vibration may be a promising candidate to improve proprioceptive control of posture in stroke patients. (Short-term Effects Of Whole-Body Vibration On Postural Control In Unilateral Chronic Stroke Patients. Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2004 Nov; 83(11)867-72)

Vibration training improved isometric and dynamic muscle strength and also significantly increased the bone mineral density of the hip. No such improvements were noted in the controls who used resistance training. These findings suggest that whole body vibration training may be a feasible and effective way to modify well-recognized risk factors for falls and fractures in older women. (Effect Of 6-Month Whole Body Vibration Training on Hip Density, Muscle Strength and Postural Control In Postmenopausal Women: A Randomized Controlled Pilot Study. J Bone Miner Res 2004 Mar:19(3):352-9)

Whole body vibration therapy and the reflexive muscle contraction it provokes, has the potential to induce strength gain in knee extensors of previously untrained females to the same extent as resistance training at moderate intensity. It was clearly shown that strength increases after whole body vibration therapy training are not attributable to a placebo effect. (Strength Increase After Whole Body Vibration Compared With Resistance Training. Med Sci Sports Exerc 2003 June:35(6): 1033-41)

The results show significant increases in the plasma concentration of testosterone and growth hormone and a decrease in cortisol levels. We can conclude that whole body vibration leads to beneficial hormonal changes as well as an improvement in neuromuscular performance. The effects are similar to those produced by explosive power training.

I absolutely love it April 25, 2011
Reviewer: Michelle from California  
I have used the Body Vibe for over 1 year now and it has helped me to lose weight and improve muscle mass. I can do so many different exercises with this machine. And I absolutely love it and recommend it.
