07 Dec 12 days of AHF Christmas: 3G Cardio Vibration Machines
Editor’s note: To help get our loyal Internet followers ready for Christmas, and let them know about the many great deals available through At Home Fitness, I’m revealing the 12 days of AHF Christmas. Here’s Day 3:
“On the third day of Christmas, At Home Fitness sent to me Three 3G Cardio vibration machines, Two home gyms, And A sales associate with a great fitness plan for me.”
Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV), also known as Accelerated Vibration Training (AVT) is the fastest growing area of the fitness industry. Vibration training has benefited people from all walks of life, from elite athletes, to the couple next door and even senior citizens and people struggling with chronic illnesses in some cases.It works by stimulating the body’s reflexes to result in alternating muscle contractions and relaxations. Depending on the settings and what you do on the machine, it can be used for stretching, improving balance, core exercises, strength training and even massage therapy.
For stretching and basic strength training, the user can stand on the platform and hold a static exercise position (ie: squat, hamstring stretch or triceps dip). For more advanced strength training, perform dynamic exercises (ie: squat movement, pushup, bent over row).
The vibration plate motors send vibrations that you can adjust (often between 30-50 Hertz), which travel into the activated muscle groups. The vibrations create instability, which the body senses and reflexively contracts muscles involuntarily to stabilize and react to. The muscles contract in response to the plate vibration and movement, resulting in rapid contractions and accelerated results. Alternating muscle contractions and relaxations result in a user’s muscle tissues activating and reacting up to 50 times per second. Studies have found up to 97 percent of the muscle fibers may be activated instantaneously, compared to as little as 20 percent with traditional methods. Because of this uniquely efficient way of training, users can see major benefits by working out on their vibration machine for as little as three times a week for 30 minutes.
At Home fitness carries three models by 3G Cardio, the award-winning, Arizona-based health and fitness equipment company led by owners with more than fifty years experience in the specialty fitness industry.
Named a Fit Prof Best Buy winner for four years in a row, 3G Cardio’s AVT 3.0 Vibration machine offers a whole new level of quality and affordability. This machine matches attractive aesthetics with power and stability. With an overall weight of 100 pounds, a Hertz range of 25-50 Hz, a large, oversized platform and a powerful vertical style vibration motion, the 3.0 competes head to head with machines twice the price.
The 3G Cardio AVT 5.0 Vibration machine is a different kind of vibration plate. The comfort of the ergonomically-correct handles, the vibration platform and the overall stability of the machine are noticeable from the moment you step on. It offers dramatic results faster and without the risks of more traditional types of fitness training. The state-of-the-art electronic display allows for a wide variety of stretching, strengthening, and massage programs. And with the generously oversized vibration platform, both standing and lying exercises can me performed without feeling restricted or crowded. The 3G Cardio AVT 5.0 Vibration machine offers the quality, durability, and performance necessary to challenge even the most advanced athlete.
The 3G Cardio AVT 6.0 Vibration machine brings the quality and feel of the health club into the privacy of your own home. Built for any type of commercial environment, but at a price point comparable to other vibration plates made only for home use, the 3G Cardio AVT 6.0 will blow away the competition on features and overall value. It comes standard with an embedded Premium High Fatigue SOFT AVT Surface so that you always have a fixed, comfortable surface on which to stand, sit, or lie. With 24 built-in programs and the ability to create three custom user programs, the 3G Cardio AVT 6.0 Vibration Machine will have something for everyone.
All of three these machines, and many, many more, are carried by At Home Fitness in its Arizona superstores and online at www.athomefitness.com.
