Traditionally vibration exercise consists of a series of 'static' exercises that can be easily performed by maintaining the poses shown below with no movement.
Each exercise is performed for only 30 or 60 seconds depending if you are a beginner or advanced. You don't have to perform every exercise on the chart, only the muscle groups you wish to train. These can be easily identified by the shaded areas of red on the muscle group diagram to the left of the trainer. A 10 or 15 minute workout can be made up by choosing a series of exercises concentrating on 1 part of the body or muscle group. Alternatively, you can have a general workout by encompassing a range of different exercises.
More recently our team of personal trainers have added 'Dynamic' movement to some exercises to get even more benefits out of the vibtostation. These exercises only involve gentle and controlled movement and as with the philosophy of vibration training the vibrostation does the work for you.
Only our customers are able to access the video and voice instructions by entering the email address they used to order vibrostation.
