Sweating is like taking a nice shower, except the water is coming from inside of you. Let it out with this Groupon.
$49 for Four Weeks of Unlimited Whole-Body Vibration-Training Classes ($150 Value)
During 20- to 30-minute whole-body vibration-training sessions, groups of exercisers sit or stand and perform various movements atop vibrating platforms. The platforms gently contract muscles up to 3,000 times per minute, working to induce calorie burning and lymphatic drainage. The gentle vibrations don't strain the body or the respiratory system, making the sessions a safe alternative to vigorous exercise for injured athletes.
See the class schedule here. Before a person’s first class, a complimentary body assessment helps to guide recommendations for a personalized fitness program.
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.
