The Body Toner is a special vibrating platform that uses Whole Body Vibration
training to achieve great results in little time.
Developed originally as a way of counteracting the lack of gravity in space, vibration training originates from the Russian Space Program where it was successfully used to improve bone density and reinforce the muscles of their astronauts. Vibration training enabled the Russians to set a record of 420 days in outer space, whilst American astronauts were forced to give up after 120 days due to bone density and muscle failure. The Vibration Training is being used extensively in Europe and the United States and has now made its way to Australia.
Vibration training movement causes the body to burn large amounts of energy, hence emptying the fat cells of their stored carbohydrates.
The reason for the large amount of energy burnt is because up to 100 of your muscle fibres are recruited in vibration training unlike normal exercise that uses up to 70 of them. Also during vibration training, your muscles can move up to 3000 times per minute, and yes it does feel like exercising.
Simply stand on the body toner and feel the machine vibrate. According to reports this vibrating motion is said to increase strength, speed, flexibility, and boost your hormonal profile, lymphatic drainage, increase bone density, reduce pain in joints, reduce cellulite, helps you sleep better, lower your cholesterol and increase your blood circulation. As all things go, you must consult your doctor before using this machine.Benefits attributed to the Vibration technology include: • Reduced body fat

• Increased bone density
• Increased metabolism
• Increased blood circulation
• Increased flexibility, mobility and co-ordination
• Improved muscle strength and stamina
• Improved collagen production and skin tone
