The Core Laser Pro Exercise System Offers a Solution for Lower Back Pain, Balance Training and Athletic Performance.

By Nicole Girard

Scottsdale, AZ, May 21, 2013– Responding to demand from physical therapists and chiropractors, Laser Gym has introduced a professional version of its Core Laser Exercise System. This is a revolutionary laser therapy device that relieves back pain, improves balance, flexibility and core strength by encouraging targeted hip gyrations.

“This institutional Core Laser design was motivated due to many requests from health care professionals for an adjustable unit to accommodate the various heights and body types of different patients,” says Laser Gym Executive Vice President Ryan Jeffrey. “Core Laser Pro requires minimal space and takes less than a minute to assemble.”

As with the original Core Laser Home, the professional version works through what Jeffrey calls “direct visual feedback” training. Using a laser attached to an adjustable belt, a user stands in front of a target and traces lines and patterns via dynamic pelvic tilts and twists. Patients see and feel improvement in their flexibility and strength with just eight minutes of practice. The system is available at ActiveForever for $199.00

The Core Laser Pro differs in that it allows health care professionals to quickly and easily adjust the target, providing greater efficiency while requiring less space in a clinical setting. The Core Laser Pro, which includes an adjustable, free-standing Pro Target and professional carrying case, is available at ActiveForever for $599.99.

“We’ve already received very positive responses from our individual users, and from the major rehabilitation specialists and athletic trainers who rely on us to bring them the most effective and credible treatment and conditioning ideas,” says ActiveForever CEO, Erika Feinberg. “The Laser Core line is a perfect fit for our offering and audience. The demonstration videos on our website sum it up nicely, and specialists ‘get it’ just by seeing it in action.”

ActiveForever will accommodate any health care provider organizations with a Core Laser Pro educational demonstration.

Fitness Vibration Cure-All: Weight Loss, Arthritis, Circulation, Well-Being

     Vibrate Fitness and Vitality with Whole Body Vibration

Straight from the stars comes the last word in all-encompassing fitness and health: Whole Body Vibration or WBV.

Originally used for cosmonaut training, the craze spread quickly throughout Europe and Japan. The rest, as they say, is history. Vibration enthusiasts became hooked on the benefits. They began to experience increased circulation, range of motion and flexibility.

They appreciated the improvements in muscle strength, core conditioning and stability; not to mention the faster muscle recovery following a workout. Gyms and centers devoted entirely to Whole Body Vibration came to dominate the psyche of the fitness conscious public.

Medvibe NitroFit Personal Whole Body Vibration Platform

The Medvibe NitroFit Personal Whole Body Vibration Platform features 5 built-in workout programs and a blue LED control panel to track your pulse and body fat as you exercise. $999.00 with a $50 mail-in rebate!

Whole Body Vibration allows the user to take on less physical load when compared to weight lifting, yet achieve similar results in less time. During the workout, muscle tissues contract and relax thousands of times per second, providing unmatched fat burning efficiency. Risk of injury during the workout period is greatly reduced. Weight loss, muscle strength and tone increases during WBV due to the extreme stimulus your muscles must respond to each second.

Multiple reports and independent tests confirm that athletic performance increases when whole body vibration is used in conjunction with training exercises. Manufacturers say WBV is an excellent way for those who have health restrictions that keep them from exercising, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and some forms of Arthritis, to tone muscle and condition.

ActiveForever’s Patricka and Rocky Complete the Iron Girl 5k!!

aflogo-96x96ActiveForever is very proud of their own Patricka Fletcher and Raquel, (Rocky) Johnson for committing to, and completing, the annual Iron Girl 5K run this past weekend. Rocky’s daughter Kira joined in the fun too.

Go Patricka GO!!

All three women braved brutally early, pre-dawn hours and what felt like Subarctic temperatures to give it their all. This was Patricka’s fifth year participating in the run. It was the third year for both Rocky and Kira.

Although Patricka admits she did not train as often as she would’ve preferred, she remains consistently committed to a healthy diet and regular exercise and was able to finish a thoroughly impressive 24th in her age group!

CONGRATS PATRICKA, ROCKY and KIRA!!

Iron Girl was launched in 2004 as a way to celebrate and promote the idea of healthy living for women. They use their Web site as a resource with training and nutrition tips as well as health-oriented columns. The annual run serves as a platform by which fitness-focused women can display all the progress they’ve made toward a healthier lifestyle.

Participants choose between the 5k run and the 10 mile run.

SUCCESS!!!
