A master-level-certified personal trainer, a registered nurse, a physical therapist, and a medical consultant are among the experienced staff at Great Vibrations who augment their physical therapy and fitness efforts with 20- to 30-minute vibration-training sessions. The staff supervise exercisers as they sit or stand and perform various movements atop vibrating platforms, which induce gentle muscle contractions at a high rate, helping to build muscle tissue, lessen pain, and burn fat without the strain of a normal workout.
With the help of these specialized machines, the center’s repertoire of group classes give bodies an even bigger boost than they would alone. From kickboxing to indoor cycling, the sessions burn fat and increase muscle tone while engaging students in workouts that never get boring. The vibrating platforms also play a part in one-on-one personal training, which provides the nutrition and exercise tips necessary to whittle waists, demolish sandcastles, or improve athletic performance. For those with physical limitations or pain, the machines provide impact free exercise and, when paired with the center's physical-therapy sessions, may help to improve conditions such as osteoporosis and fibromyalgia. The center also offers extensive personal-training programs, and showers and locker rooms are available.
