Vibration training began back in the late 60s, and was developed in the Russian space program to help astronauts gain strength in their muscles without gaining extra bulk. This was needed as it was found that space travel in a zero gravity state caused muscle wastage and osteoporosis. Vibration training was found to combat this very effectively.
The Vibration motion causes the muscles to contract and relax up to 50 times per second thereby giving the body a high speed exercise session and builds strength but not size.
The Oscillation movement is based on the idea that if something tries to upset your natural balance, then your brain will react against this, and tries to restabilise you. Therefore, when using X-Fit, the machine utilises Newtons law of gravitation by rocking the base plate on which you stand, at different speeds and amplitudes. The amplitude changes cause you to work against the machine and give you a very effective workout. This happens in a comfortable way which gives a great benefit to your whole body. Various different styles of exercise can be used to isolate different groups of muscles.
This unique approach of Vibration & Oscillation gives much greater benefits without spending a lot of time in the gym.
This revolutionary technology, Whole Body Vibration, is not only supported by scientists, it is used every day in healthcare and sports facilities, universities and indeed, by a growing number of celebrities, who need to train but are short on time due to their lifestyle.
X-Fit uses both types of movement, Oscillation and Vibration, which can be selected to give differing benefits and exercises. X-Fit is the ultimate machine to choose for your salon.
10 minutes = 1 hour in the gym.
