SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Jan. 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Health Magazine says the LifeSpan VP1000 Whole Body Vibration Plate gives “…the best workout for the better price.” The PCE Fitness LifeSpan VP1000 Vibration Plate was the clear favorite in a review of vibration trainers in Health’s Jan/Feb 2008 issue. “With three-way vibration and handles, the LifeSpan VP1000 delivered.” Gina Lombardi, recent Personal Trainer of the Year and fitness coach in the entertainment business, tested three vibration platforms including the LifeSpan VP1000. The article’s “Bottom Line” summarizes by saying: “I improved my flexibility and boosted my muscle workout…LifeSpan gives the best workout for the better price.”
The Health magazine article also included buying tips such as “look for a platform with three vibration directions, a frequency setting of 25 to 50 Hz, and 2 to 6 mm of amplitude.” The LifeSpan VP1000 whole body vibration plate meets all of these buying tips.
Whole body vibration is an excellent complement to traditional cardiovascular exercise and strength training, but is not a replacement for other forms of exercise. Benefits of whole body vibration validated by research include Improved Muscle Strength, Improved Flexibility and Joint Range of Motion, Improved Balance and Mobility, Increased Bone Density, and Improved Hormone Levels.
Whole body vibration causes your muscles to contract and stretch to maintain balance without your brain being actively involved. The rapid involuntary reflex intensifies even the simplest exercises. This fast repetition of your muscles reacting along with the controlled low impact to bones creates growth and strength.
The primary use of a vibration plate requires the user to stand on the vibration plate in proper position while the vibration plate moves. In addition to standing in an upright position, users can perform exercises on the LifeSpan VP1000 vibration plate such as lunges, squats, pushups, tricep dips, sit-up twists and calf raises, to increase physical activity and improve strength.
LifeSpan encourages whole body vibration plate users to follow recommended frequency and duration usage guidelines. In addition, LifeSpan recommends using vibration training as a supplement, not a replacement, to cardiovascular workouts, with adequate time in-between vibration sessions. A simple and quick whole body vibration workout on the LifeSpan VP1000 can be a very effective one.
