Whole Body Vibration—Weight Loss
Using the vibration machine for 10 minutes is the equivalent of 30-60 minutes of conventional weight lifting (depending on which vibration machine is used). Just like other exercise, a WBV workout increases your metabolism leading to burning more calories. Especially when used along with other aerobic exercise (WBV is not aerobic exeercise) this can result in losing pounds, inches, fat, and cellulite.
At Vibrant Health you can also receive nutritional counseling and have the opportunity to learn how to optimize you body’s ability to burn calories and metabolize nutrients efficiently. Most of Vibrant Health’s clients who want to lose weight are successful using a combination of working out on the vibration machine, diet modifications, other forms of exercise, and nutritional supplements.
