Vibration Plate Classes
What Is Vibration Plate Training?
Vibration Plate Training uses hundreds of vibrations per minute to stimulate the muscles throughout the body, as the client struggles against the vibration. This muscle stimulation extends to the finer muscles throughout the body (which are often not addressed in conventional exercise). This repeated muscle activation increases the strength of nerve impulses to improve the use and function of muscle, and the continuous contractions forced by the vibration improve oxygen delivery to muscles, and flush the lymph system of waste products. At the same time, the motion of the machine places tiny stressors on the skeletal system, which tells the body to activate bone growth cells and increase HGH, which both contribute to bone density and muscle formation and loss of belly fat (visceral fat).
Typically clients stand on a vibrating plate or platform, where the amount of vibration can be adjusted higher or lower, depending on the desired results. Activities on the vibration plate can range from simply standing, to using resistance bands, dumbbells,, or kettlebells to boost results. Vibration plate training can also be useful in stretching routines and yoga routines, or can incorporate barre and pilates moves.
Because the biological processes created by vibration plate training are similar to the effects produced by explosive power training or high intensity interval training (HIIT), it is a safe alternative for those who can’t tolerate such high impact activity, but still want the benefits. At the same time, studies with athletes have shown that vibration plate training leads to better performance, because of the increase in muscle glycogen, which results in increased endurance for very intense activities.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Benefits of Vibration Plate Training
There have been many studies and clinical trials on the benefits of Vibration Plate Training and Vibration Exercise to a wide range of clients. A clinical trial in 2019 showed a significant increase in bone density in subjects using whole body vibration versus high intensity impact exercises (HIIT).
In the arena of health and physical appearance, one of the least attractive and most unhealthy issues is visceral (or abdominal) fat. This is the fat around the mid-section that is very hard to target. A number of studies have shown supervised training with vibrational equipment to be one of the most effective means to reduce visceral fat. This chart below shows the results from a recent European Study.
Vibration Plate training can significantly reduce belly fat.
Can Vibration Plate Training Burn Calories?
In one ten-minute WBV session with our machine, you can burn up to 190 calories. Add this with our Near Infrared Sauna treatment and you can double this with just one session.
What are the benefits for seniors or those that are new to exercising?
Seniors and those new to exercise using low impact vibration plate exercise found that:
Vibration workouts improved balance
Vibration workouts improved coordination
Vibration workouts increased bone density
Vibration workouts increased muscle mass
Vibration workouts increased core strength
Vibration Plate training can help increase bone density
What are the benefits for athletes and experienced exercisers?
Athletes and experienced exercisers using vibration plate training found that:
Vibration workouts increased jumping strength
Vibration workouts advanced coordination
Vibration workouts targeted deep muscle development
Vibration workouts increased core strength
Vibration workouts increased muscle glycogen, which increased capacity for very intense activities
Who Can Use Vibration Plate Training?
If one of the conditions listed below applies to you we strongly advise that you consult with your physician before using the WBV machine. If you have any known health concerns in addition to this list, consult your physician and advise them you wish to begin a sonic vibration exercise program which vibrates in a vertical plane between 3-50 Hz (vibrations per second) and has an adjustable intensity (rate at which the plate vibrates up and down). Your body may endure between negative and positive 3 Gs of force for up to 10 minutes. This can be equivalent to 1 hour of cardio.
Serious cardiovascular disease
Recent wounds from an operation or surgery
Recent Hip and knee implants
Acute hernia, discopathy, spondylolysis
Recently placed IUDs, metal pins, or plates
How long are the sessions/classes?
Our Vibration Classes are 27 minutes long. per class. If you are utilizing the vibration plate after one of our Signature Non-Invasive Body Contouring treatments (i.e. Lipo Melt, Lipo Laser), you will need at least 10 minutes of vibration plate therapy for maximum lymphatic drainage post treatment. It is recommended to follow-up with a near infrared sauna treatment for maximum results!
