Sitting for long periods at work or play slows circulation and medical research shows it may:
- Lead to obesity (make you fat!)
- Slow your metabolism
- Reduce your circulation
- Can’t be ‘undone’ by occasional exercising
MAYO CLINIC 2012
IT ALL STARTS WITH MUSCLE CONTRACTIONS
As a natural reaction to muscles contracting, even at lower speeds, WBV improves your blood circulation... oxygen and nourishment are pumped to every cell. Vibration gets your whole body working so you may lead a strong, vibrant and healthy life.
exercise is the key
Most of us know that exercise is good for improving circulation. But, how does it work? When you exercise the blood vessels that supply blood and take blood away from your muscles dilate to allow for a massive increase in blood flow. Imagine water flowing through a fire hose compared to a garden hose!
WHEN CIRCULATION IS GREAT...
You feel amazing. Energy, freedom of movement... there’s a bounce in your step.
BUILD A STRONG CORE
With strong core muscles, you develop better posture and have a greater chance to reduce back pain. Whole Body Vibration can activate those ‘key’ stabilising muscles at your body’s core.
MASSAGE AWAY ACHES AND TENSION
We all know how awesome deep tissue massage makes us feel – it relieves those tight sore muscles.
Massage is so easy and beneficial, and is so simple on the CV12.
RESISTANCE TRAINING, A GREAT CHOICE
Michael Roizen, MD from Internal Medicine, says that resistance training provides different cardiovascular benefits to cardio.
He describes it being better at increasing blood flow and lowering your blood pressure. While for bone health, resistance training trumps!
So in essence... by incorporating regular moderate exercise into your week and combining it with other lifestyle modifications (such as proper nutrition, no smoking and medication use) you’ll not only be feeling unstoppable but be dramatically reducing cardiovascular health risks.
NOT ALL MACHINES ARE THE SAME!
Circulation machines generally use electric impulses. These mini electrical shocks only focus on your muscles... and they are uncomfortable for many.
The difference? Vibration contracts muscles naturally – no nasty electrical impulses, improving blood flow without you even being aware. Even at low speeds, oxygen and nourishment are pumped to every cell. Yes, every single cell. Not just muscle cells.
For the first time you can exercise without feeling overwhelmed or challenged beyond your capacity. By starting off gently you gradually intensify as you build strength.

Prolonged sitting is a new risk factor, especially for diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular health. This talk will explain the scientific evidence and indicate how and why prolonged sitting is a new health concern.
SITTING IS THE ‘NEW’ SMOKING!
The latest research from health professionals is that we all need to lead an active lifestyle, and make sure we move throughout the day, every day.
IT’S A FACT OF LIFE...
We spend most of our lives sitting – office work, home work, Facebook, Twitter, not to mention watching TV.
Think about how many hours you spend just sitting each day: during transport, at work, at home. It’s astounding!
According to recent, reliable research, the effects of prolonged sitting are just as harmful as smoking!
