Vibration training, also known as acceleration training, is a relatively underused method of physical training that has been surprising the world for over the past ten years. Click here to watch the vibration training video.
How does it work?
The high speed up and down movements of the platform you exercise on causes stretch reflexes, which in turn cause a tremendous amount of muscle activity. This applies only to muscles that are pre-tensed, and even if all you do is assume an active position. Even in static exercises all of the muscles involved are working at their optimum level.
Positive training results quickly and easily
All of the effects of strength and fitness training can also be achieved using vibration training – but in a much shorter time and with a lot less exertion than when using traditional training methods. This is mainly due to the intensity of the stretch reflexes the muscles go through, and the way the body reacts to this. If you want to gain strength and improve your fitness, you have to increase the influence of gravity in order to stimulate your body to adapt to those more demanding circumstances.
Scientifically proven advantages
Because of the low amplitude of the platform (2 mm maximum), the body will only experience the advantages and none of the drawbacks of high G-forces. The effects of vibration training have been scientifically proven: increased muscle strength, improved stamina, enhanced coordination, superior equilibrium, enhanced flexibility, increased blood flow, improved bone density, increased explosive power, pain reduction, positive effect on cellulite and more efficient burning of damaging abdominal fat than in traditional fitness.
Everyone can be healthy with only two to three short sessions per week
Almost all of the studies were based on two to three training sessions for 20 minutes on average, with increasing intensity. All of VibroGym’s training schedules are based on the protocols used in these studies. The main advantage of vibration training is that practically anyone can perform the exercises, even when there are serious impediments that make traditional training difficult or even impossible. That is why this training method is used in many rehab programs.
Top athletes use vibration training as well
The fact that some of the best athletes in the world use vibration training as an important part of their training proves the potential of this training method and validates it, just as the scientific research does. More importantly, hundreds of thousands of VibroGym users experience its positive influence on their health and wellbeing every day.
