One of the newest trends in the fitness world, whole-body vibrations provide the benefits that you can get with regular exercise routines but without getting tired and sweaty because of rigorous movements. The best vibration machines that we see in commercial gyms may look weird compared to the other gym equipment that we typically use for strength and muscle training. Still, it does not diminish the fact that it is an essential gym device that you can also use at home. Home Gym offers a wide selection of vibrations platforms found in Australia to help you achieve a complete and effective workout.
Frequently Asked Questions
Improved muscle tone and strength. Since the vibrations contract and relax your muscles all over the body, it somehow replicates the force that you present to your body while doing more rigorous activities.
Improved balance. Standing on a vibrating plate may somehow make you lose your stability, so balancing your body during your workout routine using the platform can improve your core strength and therefore develop better balance and stability.
Increased blood flow and circulation. Aside from muscle contraction, whole-body vibrations also improve blood circulation, making the oxygen distribution around the body to perk up as well.
Weight loss. Standing or sitting down on the vibration platform will not affect your weight loss whatsoever, but would make your body feel relaxed and energised, just like how massage affects your body. But if you incorporate this machine to your workout routine to advance its difficulty, you will surely notice an increase in your weight loss.
Choose your design. There are bulky, heavy-duty looking vibration plates that you usually see in fitness shops, and there are portable step stool-like ones. If you are considering to use this machine at home, opt to purchase the latter so it would be easier for you to store them after use. You can even store it under your bed so you can do your pre-workout upon waking up and post-workout massage before going to bed.
Find its maximum weight capacity. Just like any other home gym equipment that looks like a miniature version of its commercial gym counterpart, you would want to know if the home gym equipment version can hold your weight. A typical vibration platform can hold the bodyweight of an average man up to about 300 lbs., so it is not advisable for two people to use it at the same time.
Noise. Some of our customers who purchased their vibration platform with us use it while watching TV or listening to their workout music, so it is important that the machine would not interfere with the sound of the surroundings. The brands Home Gym Australia carries provide a quiet motor for their vibration platform models, so this should not be a problem if you choose one of ours.
Standard features. As mentioned earlier, there are different brands and models of vibration platform machines that you can choose from, but one of the main things that you have to keep in mind is how the standard features of the equipment would benefit your usual workout. For instance, you would want to opt for a vibration platform that has a remote control apart from its monitor on the device so it is easier for you to control the speed, intensity, and variation of the vibrations you would get from the machine. Also, you might want to decide if you would like a vibration platform that has wheels for easy moving around the house. One of the other features that can actually affect your decision is the colour of the machine. Decide if you want your vibration platform for a home gym to add a spark of colour in the room or to blend in with the neutral tone of your house.
