Squats, crunches, and other exercises only target very specific muscle groups. That's part of the logic behind the platforms at Great Vibrations. They spread the work across more muscles in the body, building strength and general fitness. The work is low impact, which means it can be appropriate for seniors, kids, and those with injuries. In fact, though the machines can build muscle and burn fat, they may also improve circulatory and vascular function in injured patrons.
They're not the only ones who use the workout, though; it's also popular with internationally competitive athletes and professional football players. A menu of classes keep muscles guessing. 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.
