Despite their menacing reputation, earthquakes promote a plethora of health benefits, including the promotion of squiggle vision and enhanced angled-walking ability. Shake your way to a healthier you with today's Groupon: for $24, you get 10 whole-body-vibration sessions (a $50 value), including a short massage after each session, at T-Zone Ottawa’s Bank Street location.
Originally developed in the 1960s to reduce space-induced muscle loss in astronauts, whole-body-vibration technology also claims to post such healthy rewards as improving bone density and flexibility. T-Zone machines produce vertical vibrations and side-alternating rocking movements that simulate walking, causing the body to react with involuntary reflex contractions and spontaneous break-dancing spins. Increased acceleration forces trick the body into feeling it weighs more, which in turn allows the user to work against a greater load of gravity in his or her movements. Help relieve pain caused by fibromyalgia and alleviate osteoporosis through the building of bone-mass-density stadiums and body skyscrapers. Clients who fear wicked weight machines and evil, sore-inducing squats can tone and tighten with whole-body vibration and without high-impact activity.
T-Zone Ottawa provides private booths as well as open stations in its gym area, fostering a comfortable atmosphere for shy and social shakers alike. T-Zone trainers are on hand to help customize the workout, take measurements to keep track of progress, and demonstrate how to make the perfect milkshake during your workout.
