Vibration. Once the exclusive domain of earthquakes and cellphones set on quiet mode, this energetic form of motion has found new life in the world of exercise thanks to Vibrate For Health's whole body vibration (WBV) therapy. First designed to combat the atrophying effect of weightlessness on Soviet cosmonauts, WBV combats cellular degeneration with the stimulating power of vigorous movement. After stepping onto a vibrating platform, clients shake away malaise during 10-minute sessions designed to boost cells' ability to absorb nutrients and oxygen while waking up bones, muscles, and the ghost that lives between every person's third and fourth ribs.
