Q: Can vibration exercise be used as part of a broader fitness program?
A: One of the prominent traits of the ENERGYM TURBO CHARGER machine is, it effectively works on the muscle after doing other exercises as the vibration exercises may lessen the amount of cortisol hormones produced by the body. So, in doing vibration exercises before and after the main exercise the damage of muscles is taken care of naturally.
Q: What if I don't like exercise or get bored easily?
A: The machine is very effective for those who always like to exercise with various positions and in short time duration. Those people who feel monotony in exercising, to them it is attractive enough. The exercise is really fruitful though it is used for a short time. The exercise in ENERGYM TURBO CHARGER is effective if one can do maximum of 1 minute exercise in one position. The user can feel the result just doing that much of exercise in ENERGYM TURBO CHARGER.
Q: What is the difference between Oscillating and Lineal platforms?
A: To utilize weight bearing vibration technology ENERGYM TURBO CHARGER has two types of platforms.
- A lineal action which vibrates in a vertical, 3D fashion
- Other action that oscillates in a pivotal or see-saw action.
As it increases mobility in the pelvis, the oscillating action is considered to be more therapeutic, and does skeletal repositioning. Oscillating platforms have shown positive results in preventing bone loss in sheep and chickens and on post menopausal women. For humans, low amplitude vibrations may be better says research. However, the human response to vibrations is said to differ from person to person.
Q: Does this machine come with a book of all the exercises you can do?
A: EnergyM Turbo Chargers contain Basic Workout DVD only.
Q: Will I get thin after using this? And how many days will it take to see significant weight loss results?
A: Depending on the lifestyle and medical history the result of doing exercise in EnergyM Turbo Chargers varies from users to users. Obviously healthy eating plan and regular workout combination are required for weight loss scheme that is supported by Energy M Turbo Charger.
Q: Could a vibration platform workout replace my fitness program?
A: The isometric (static) and isotonic (dynamic) muscle strength are increased by Vibrating Plate Exercise. It increases flexibility and mobility, improves coordination and core stability. A vibration platform cannot increase the size of the heart muscle which regular exercise can do. Varying the personal aim, it can be a replacement as well as enhancement for / to any Fitness programme.
Q: Can I use the Vibration platform to increase my flexibility?
A: The joint mobility may be increased by the JANDA stretch method which is used in vibration platform exercises. By this process the muscle expands, contracts and relaxes. Hence the joints are mobilized entirely. The high level of relaxation happened as the Golgi apparatus in the muscle is stimulated while doing exercise in the vibration platform. During active and functional positions while on the Vibration platform, muscles may lengthen, but tender muscle strength is not affected.
Q: Should I avoid using the Vibration platform with bare feet?
A: Wearing flexible soled shoes is proper for transferring vibration correctly. The rubber base is must where you are performing exercise, where other parts of the body are in contact with the machine.
Q: How often should I use the Vibration Platform?
A: With trained supervision, vibration platform exercises can be done in 10 minutes sessions twice / thrice a day. Aged people can activate their muscles safely without any complications, extra strain on the joints and ligaments
Q: Are there any age limits for using the Vibration Machine?
A: Keeping the continuous trained supervision, following points can be noted:
- Children as young as 12 can use the Vibration platform and they are benefited from vibration training
- All exercises should be in “Low ” mode
- People up to 75 years old can get training on the vibration platform, which may be beneficial for health conditions such as osteoporosis and arthritis
- Always consult medical practitioner before using EnergyM Turbo Charger
Q: Are there Contra Indications that I should be aware of?
A: Whenever someone wants to use EnergyM Turbo Charger or any kind of exercise equipment he / she should consult medical practitioner for a complete examination.
Do not use the EnergyM Turbo Charger if any of the following apply to you (not exhaustive):
- Acute inflammations
- Joint disorders
- Retinal detachment
