Jump Start Your Weight Loss
Summer is here and with it, the pool parties and beach retreats we both love and dread. Even if you have tried and failed on other programs, take a minute to discover the science behind how whole body vibration therapy can jump start your weight loss so you can look, and feel, your best this summer.
Oxygen: Critical To Your Success
You know how important oxygen is to your body, but did you know that your oxygen uptake is significantly higher when you perform exercises while standing on a whole body vibration (WBV) machine vs. the same exercises done without the benefit of WBV (1,2)? Oxygen is believed to promote healing, energize the body, displace harmful free radicals, neutralize environmental toxins, detoxify the blood, and strengthen the immune system… all great things when you are asking your body to operate with less calories so you can lose weight safely.
Rev Up Your Metabolism
Beyond the additional oxygen, WBV has also been suggested to have a beneficial effect on muscle strength (3,4). Researchers have reported that the addition of WBV to an exercise routine increased muscle strength and lean muscle (5,6) allowing participants to get more out of their workouts when the exercises were performed using whole body vibration. The ratio of lean muscle to fat is an important part of weight loss. The more the muscle you have the higher your metabolism and a higher metabolism is a great way to boost your weight loss.
What does this mean for you?
It means that 10 calf raises done on your personal VibraWav Pro Series, in the comfort of your own home, will do more to benefit your health than the same 10 calf raises done without vibration. It means you will get better, faster results in less time by adding whole body vibration therapy to your life. Why wait? Give yourself the gift of health this summer by adding a VibraWav Pro XT to your home today. Click here to find out more information and make this summer your best summer ever!
