Advanced fitness

  1. 1. <ul><li>ADVANCED FITNESS REQUIRES ADVANCED TRAINING TECHNIQUES </li></ul><ul><li>Optimal Vertical Vibration </li></ul><ul><li>Advance Core Conditioning </li></ul><ul><li>Rehab and Decompression </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Whole Body Vibration/Oscillation Training creates a fast twitch muscle response to the involuntary muscle contractions created by the vibration, and another simultaneous muscle response to the continuous instability that is being forced upon the body by the vertically shifting plane. This muscle response is called Tonic Reflex Vibration (TVR). While it is virtually impossible to produce a vibration machine with 100 % ‘Lineal Motion’, the patented design of the Health Mark units is as close as achievable. This design allows the body to work more directly against gravity, essentially allowing you to use your own body weight to work out with, while limiting side-ways stresses to the joints. This phenomenon is commonly referred to as ‘Hyper Gravity’ or ‘Increased Gravity’. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The movement exerted onto and into your body by the vertical oscillation will help to optimize muscle performance in regards to strength, power, flexibility, and tone while improving reflex strength and balance. This same technology can also be used to relax and rehabilitate tired muscles, temporarily improve blood, lactic acid and lymphatic fluid circulation, and research has indicated that these techniques can also help increase bone mass density. </li></ul><ul><li>Training and therapy programs utilizing these advanced techniques allow muscle conditioning in a passive environment, thereby limiting the possibility of muscle, ligament and tendon strain that may otherwise become prevalent in senior populations. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The muscle strength, conditioning and balance gained through this type of advanced training is required to improve balance and gate in senior populations; and the agility that is enhanced is what is required in many instances to prevent near fall situations. The concept of improved mobility is not only a fitness concern for our senior populations, it more importantly an issue of independence and quality of life. This can be seen by the yearly statistics regarding injuries and convalescence resulting from falls amongst older populations. </li></ul><ul><li>Optimal Vertical Vibration is of primary importance in this arena of fitness and treatment, as by limiting tri-planar or sideways vibration stress will not be applied to the joints from and unnatural angle. </li></ul>
