Vibration Training for Weight Loss – Does it really work, girls?

July 3rd, 2013

Part 4 in an informative, fun series for the girls

Note: I’ve written other articles about the types of machines available; the ones for therapy and the ones for real, fitness training. I’ve also written about the scams and the “as-seen-on-tv” machines, so, in this blog I’m assuming the use of a high-energy lineal machine (Vibra-Train brand in a specialised studio) or a high-speed pivotal (such as Cardiotech CV 9 or Hypervibe).

I’m asked this question all the time – “does it work?” , “work for what?”, I reply?  Oh, okay, Weight-Loss? What sort of weight-loss do we want? Of course we mean Fat-Loss, we want to build bone strength and high quality muscle. Most girls also  know that water loss is temporary,  its definitely fat that we want gone and gone forever.

Let’s be honest here – it’s taken you how long to get to the size and weight you are now ??? and you want to be slim, toned and down to a minuscule goal weight by when ???

Vibration Training absolutely will help you lose fat but you are not going to be half your weight after 3 sessions.  I’m not joking here either, I had a lady complain that she hadn’t reached her goal and trimmed right down, after 3 sessions; that’s just one week. She told me she’d investigated and that was her expected result. Two things immediately came to mind; she wasn’t much overweight at all (in fact she looked normal to me but in her home country big emphasis is put on beauty and on being very slim). The second point, she was late 40’s and so at a stage in a woman’s life that would have a lot going on; hormones and all that.  » Read more: Vibration Training for Weight Loss – Does it really work, girls?
