     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.

Uniband Resistance Bands for Enhanced Weight Lifting

The Uniband Latex Free Resistance Bands from ActiveForever are excellent mobility/rehabilitation tools which can be used to enhance weight lifting and training exercises as well. Unibands are the only resistance bands made to withstand pool chemicals. They make a great and fun addition to any water aerobics session!

Unlike traditional weight training, in which the rate of exertion is lighter with the finishing motion, with Unibands, the resistance of the bands increases as they are stretched. Color-coded Unibands offer five different levels of resistance, from very light to very heavy.

Uniband Latex Free Resistance Bands come with accessories to improve and enhance your strength training regimen! $75.99

The Uniband forces your muscles to speed up at the end of an exertion in order to overcome the resistance of the bands at the top of the movement. In this way muscles are really pushed to their capacity at a much greater rate than with regular weights. At the moment when traditional weights are lightening their load, the Unibands are really making those muscles work.This allows you to develop strength, tone and agility in all major muscle groups, as well as the minor groups that are normally neglected. When working out with resistance bands, the entire dynamic of the exercise is changed and enhanced.
