How Whole Body Vibration helps with Weight Loss

While modern science and today’s medical advances have conquered many major illnesses and diseases, one of the significant health problems of this generation is excess body weight. It is typically caused by incorrect diet and a sedentary lifestyle. While scientists in Canada struggle to find ways to assist in weight loss, there exists now an effective tool for immediately getting a weight loss program underway using a Vibration Machine for Weight Loss – Whole Body Vibration equipment.

No need to engage exhausting and intensive physical training or fad diets, both which may be harmful to your health, near immediate health benefits can be gained with the use of a Whole Body Vibration machine. A Vibration Machine for Weight Loss is the least tiring form of training that can be employed in order to transition into and maintain a healthy, fit lifestyle.

A Whole Body Vibration machine can become an efficient helper in the pursuit of an ideal body shape. It’s health benefits include improved body shape as it warms muscles, imparts a massaging effect to the whole body, and improves blood oxygenation and circulation. A Whole Body Vibration platform as a vibration machine weight loss is one of the best tools available in the struggle with cellulite. Through zoned coercion of the body, it targets excess weight, cellulite and lipopexia in problematic areas throughout the entire body. The effect of simply standing on a Whole Body Vibration platform is similar to the effect of an anti-cellulite massage. As muscle tone improves, the skin becomes smoother. However, unlike expensive anti-cellulite massages, there is a onetime investment, after which the Whole Body Vibration machine will continue to provide an ongoing anti-cellulite effect far into the future.

Just 10 minutes of Whole Body Vibration exercise, 3-5 times per week you can reclaim control over your health, your weight and slow aging. In combination with healthy eating and regular moderate activity each a day, immediate and visible results in weight loss, reduced appearance of cellulite and body sculpting can be achieved with regular use of a Whole Body Vibration machine.

A new scientific study presented at the European Congress on Obesity, found that overweight or obese people who regularly used Vibration Machine for Weight Loss with a calorie restricted diet were much more successful at long term weight-loss and losing the fat around their abdomen compared to those who combined dieting with a more conventional fitness routine. “These machines are increasingly found in gyms across the industrialized world, including Canada, and have gathered a devoted following in many places, but there has not been any studies proving that they help people lose weight. Our study, the first to investigate the effects of vibration in obese people, indicates it’s a very promising approach. It looks like these machines could be a useful addition to a weight control package,” said the study’s leader, Dr. Dirk Vissers, a physiotherapist at the Artesis University College and the University of Antwerp in Belgium.

The researchers divided the study group into four groups.

DIET GROUP: One group was prescribed an individually calculated calorie restricted diet. Dietician visits were scheduled every 2 weeks for the first 90 days and every 30 days for the second 90 days. The dieters were instructed not to undertake any exercise for the duration of the 6 month study.

DIET PLUS EXERCISE GROUP: The second group received the same diet instructions, with the addition of a traditional fitness program. They attended supervised exercise classes twice a week for an hour and were instructed to exercise a third time each week. Their exercise included cycling, swimming, running, step aerobics and some weight lifting exercises.

CONTROL GROUP: A third control group got no diet or exercise instructions.

DIET PLUS WHOLE BODY VIBRATION EXERCISE GROUP: The fourth group got the diet instructions plus supervised Vibration Machine for Weight Loss plate training instead of conventional exercise. They were instructed not to do any aerobic exercise during the six-month study period. The physiotherapists gradually increased the speed and intensity of the vibration training each week, as well as the variety and duration of the vibration exercises from 30 seconds for each of 10 exercises to 60 seconds for each of 22 exercises, such as squats, lunges, calf raises, push-ups and abdominal crunches. The average time spent vibration training was 12 minutes per session in the first 90 days and 14 minutes in the second 90 days.


Over the year, only the conventional fitness and Whole Body Vibration groups managed to maintain a 5% weight loss, which is what is considered enough to improve health.

DIET GROUP: During the first six months, the diet only group lost about 6% of their initial body weight, but could not maintain a 5% weight loss in the subsequent six months. The diet group had a visceral fat loss of 24.3 square centimeters after six months, but they were unable to maintain the loss and dropped down to only 7.5 square centimeters after a year.

DIET PLUS EXERCISE GROUP: The group that got diet plus conventional fitness lost about 7% of their initial body weight in the first six months, and by the end of the study, they had managed to keep off a 6.9% loss. Visceral fat shrank by 18 square centimeters in the conventional fitness group in the first six months, but by the end of the year, it was only 1.6 square centimeters less than at the beginning. Not very impressive!

CONTROL GROUP: The control group predicatively gained about 1.5% of their original body weight.

DIET PLUS WHOLE BODY VIBRATION EXERCISE GROUP: Finally, the Whole Body Vibration exercise group lost 11% of their body weight during the intervention phase and by the end of the follow-up period they had maintained a 10.5% loss. The Whole Body Vibration fitness group lost 48 square centimeters of visceral fat during the first six months and still had the impressive loss of 48 square centimeters after 12 months.

These are very encouraging results, and this could be a viable alternative to traditional exercise and weight lifting. Vissers explained that Vibration Machine for Weight Loss works by making muscles rapidly contract, which builds lean muscle mass. People say Whole Body Vibration exercise machines are fitness for lazy people. It may feel like a short cut, but it is real exercise.

Dr. Vissers plans further research on a larger group of obese patients to confirm how beneficial the Whole Body Vibration machines are. His team is also planning to study why vibration seems to be more effective than aerobic exercise in trimming visceral fat, including whether increased blood flow to the abdomen and hormonal response to Whole Body Vibration might play a role in more efficient fat breakdown. His Whole Body Vibration fitness study was funded and documented by the Artesis University College of Antwerp.

Obesity and weight loss are directly influenced by Whole Body Vibration exercise. The vibrations cause the development of leaner muscle tissue while they increase your metabolic rate, resulting in a higher caloric burn. Keep in mind with Whole Body Vibration, just a ten minute workout is equivalent to an hour of conventional exercise in a gym or fitness center, prompting your resting metabolism to continue to burn calories long after your session.
