Freshtetic’s Total Body Toner Program uses whole body vibration to simulate the body in a variety of unique and beneficial ways not possible with other forms of exercise. Research confirms that a number of direct effects on the body are possible with whole body vibration exercise:
- Stimulation of muscles and other reflexes 1
- An increase of gravitational load 2
- Mobilization of muscles and joints 3
- Rapid heating of joints and muscles
Benefits of Whole Body Vibration
- Elimination of Fat and Cellulite - High intensity work and vibration training with Freshtetic’s Total Body Toning training raises your body’s oxygen intake, speeds the metabolism and increases fluid drainage from your skin layers. 1,2,3
- Multiplication of Effort - Increasing your body’s oxygen usage during vibration exercises is equivalent to doubling the weight being lifted. 7
- Increased Energy - Regularly making the muscles do work increases metabolism and stimulates brain activity associated with feeling good. The result is that you not only feel more energetic, you have more energy to do the things you want. 2
How Whole Body Vibration Works
Whole Body Vibration changes the way your body experiences gravity. 2 Similar to how your body feels when riding in an elevator: when you being lifted fast your body feels heavier, when you are being lowered fast your body feels lighter. Freshtetic’s Total Body Toner Program creates a similar effect to an elevator rapidly raising – it’s as if your body became heavier. When certain exercises are performed during your Total Body Toning session the effects are multiplied resulting in increased tone to your muscles at a faster rate than simple exercising.
Where conventional exercises may not have been successful, Freshtetic’s Total Body Toning can help you get faster results!
The Science Behind Whole Body Vibration & Your Health
Whole body vibration is not just great for toning it also can help with your overall health. As our body ages veins and arteries harden and lead to health problems. If you are experiencing muscle spasms, high blood pressure or increased levels of stress, our total body toning program can help.
Italian researcher Carmelo Bosco developed a vibration training program designed to maximize muscle stimulation while minimizing fatigue. In 1999 he tested the body’s hormonal response to this simple routine and uncovered some impressive effects on the body: 2
- Muscle Power - Increased by 20%
- Cortisol Levels – Decreased by 32%
- Testosterone Levels – Increased by 7%
- Growth Hormone Levels – Increased by 360%
Why is this outcome so impressive? The level of growth hormone secreted in response to the vibration training was approximately equal to what you would get from 30 minutes of running at 86% maximum intensity 4 - something that would surely leave you energy-depleted with elevated Cortisol (stress hormone) levels. Now compare that with Carmelo’s routine in which:
- Results were instantaneous
- 60% of the time was spent doing nothing
- 100% of training time was spent standing still
- It required the subjects to exert no conscious effort
- 5 months worth of power training stimulus was achieved in 10 minutes
- Stress levels which normally increase with intense training actually decreased
- After completing the protocol, the subjects were not fatigued
