The Benefits of Whole Body Vibration Training

If you’ve been to the smart-gym you’ve probably seen or used our whole body vibration plates. Whole body vibration therapy is used by universities, professional sports teams, and medical facilities for a range of benefits.

Whole body vibration can boost your fitness, strength, tone, flexibility and range of motion. As the platform vibrates it stimulates your hormonal, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and nervous systems simultaneously. You can use it to get the lymphatic and circulatory benefits of hours of walking, or you can perform some simple exercises that grow muscle.

Benefits Include:

  • Reduce recovery time — cortisol levels can be elevated for up to 20 hours after exercise, making it harder to recover or burn fat — whole body vibration helps decrease post-exercise cortisol levels
  • Increased flexibility and mobility
  • Improved proprioception and balance
  • Enhances knee neuromuscular control
  • Increased muscle and bone density — engages 95% of your muscle fibers vs. conventional workouts only stimulating about 50% — more muscle = increased resting metabolism
  • Boost growth hormone
  • Stimulate healthier brain function
  • Detoxify and strengthen the immune system (circulates the lymph system thoroughly)
  • Immediate improvement in blood circulation
  • Pain reduction
  • Increased secretion of serotonin and norepinephrine
