How Vibration Equipment Helps Facilitate Weight Loss

What if you could stand or sit on a machine and shake your weight away? Well, whole-body vibration promises just that — almost. With these machines, you position yourself on the platform and set the vibration intensity. As the machine vibrates, the energy transmitted through your body causes micro muscle contractions – thousands of them each minute.

The vibration equipment facilitates weight loss by accelerating your strength-training efforts, enhancing blood flow, aiding in exercise recovery, and decreasing stress. Vibration equipment alone isn’t a weight loss magic bullet, but it can be an effective part of a comprehensive plan.

At Cōpare Weight Loss™, our customized plans include whole-body vibration training and diet to help you achieve the best weight-loss results. Here’s the lowdown on the benefits of using the vibration platform.

Enhances metabolic effects

Recent studies on mice show that whole-body vibration training can mimic many of the metabolic effects of more rigorous exercise, particularly treadmill workouts. Daily sessions of whole-body vibration or treadmill workouts for three months led to shrunken fat cells, reduced weight, and decreased insulin resistance. Since this study was done on animals, more research on actual people is needed.

Complements dietary interventions

Another recent study suggests that regular vibration training, when paired with dietary management, can be as effective as aerobic exercise (paired with diet) in improving women’s body fat levels. While whole-body vibration training alone isn’t enough to stimulate notable weight loss, it complements your efforts to trim portion sizes and make healthier food choices,.

Improves muscle mass

Whole-body vibration training helps improve skeletal muscle volume, which can enhance your overall body composition. Performing exercises, such as squats or biceps curls — with or without weights — while standing on the machine may accelerate muscle development. Having more muscle mass raises your daily calorie burn rate slightly, so it’s easier to lose weight and keep it off. Plus, more muscle makes you better able to do daily activities as well as look firmer and more toned.

Changes muscle structure

When your body tries to maintain equilibrium while vibrating on a platform, you experience changes in the quality of your muscles. Vibration training causes tonic vibration reflex, which alters the muscle structure itself. This results in improved muscle tone and strength.

Enhances body health

One of the major benefits of vibration training is its ability to reduce back pain. When your back feels better, it’s easier to get out and perform other exercise to help you lose weight.

Burns calories

Your body has to work harder standing on a vibrating platform as compared to standing on a solid surface. This results in more calories being burned — about 20% more according to one study.

Weight loss is a complex process. More physical activity all day long helps you increase your calorie burn, as can standing or sitting or exercising on the whole-body vibration platform.

Whole-body vibration training may sound too good to be true, but research stands behinds its potential benefits for you while you’re trying to lose weight. At Cōpare Weight Loss™, you can experience this training for yourself as part of a comprehensive weight loss plan that improves how you look and feel every day.
