    Vibrogym

    Has anyone seen these?

    My gym (California WOW Fitness Bangkok- Asok) has 2 of them.

    I get a kick out of seeing the trainers have their clients lay on these vibrogym's for 30 minutes a time. Usually not doing anything, just laying there like a lump of sh|t

    Talk about Globo Gym, lol

    By the way, my gym also has a full time DJ spinning techno, changing color neon lights that surround the more than 200 pieces of cardio equipment

    Jesus.

    I thought the people that walk in the treadmill for 30 minutes were pitiful... This is enough to make me cry.
    I do snatch pulls in the gym so I can do snatch pulls in the bars. And I ALWAYS use a hook grip.

    aaaaaahaha. nice .gif thingy. that bert face from the misc makes me lol so hard every time. i've even had it as my display pic on msn for a while now, & it makes all of my friends laugh so much. xD the 50 cent part is alright, i guess. but his face definately describes my reaction to this vibrogym thingy. =S

    but yea. techno & lazers; eh? interesting. i listen to trance during my own personal workouts & play it in my group fitness classes. but i'd be so pissed off to have lazers on during my own personal workouts; not too sure about during classes, though. it would be neat for my choreography classes; not so much the weight lifting & boot camp ones, though. =/

    So I know these things cost at least a few Thousands bucks each so the real question is....

    Are there any legitimate uses for them? Has anyone heard athletes for pro or collegiate teams using them? Rehab? Anything?

    The local news had a clip of Lebron James's workout where he was doing exercises on one of those things. Does he really use it or did he see an advertising opportunity? I dont know.

    Same SH|T Different Continent (s)

    I just caught an infomercial on late night Thai television about this $300 USD home vibrator thing. The commercial was complete with fat people jiggling and of course measuring and losing weight, I don't speak but 5 words in Thai and I can probably quote them word for word lol

    Looks like it's hit Australia too...

    My gym has one of these, I've used it a few times.

    The first time I set it to the highest setting and thought I was going to lose control of my bladder...

    The gym and trainers plug it to everyone. The big pitch to the elderly is that the vibrations help build bone and fight osteoporosis... If anything it shakes them apart.

    they are pretty crappy peices of equipment forthe general public. They do have their uses for rehab purposes to work on stability etc.

    I wonder if it gives you that itchy feeling like when you've been using a chainsaw for a long time with no break? It just looks like the latest fad in the muscle confusion/"core" training/instability training hype machine.

    They do give you that feeling if you are on there more than a few minutes in the same position.

    I've never used one so I really have no right to talk smack about them, but they remind me of these



    I wonder if they would benefit people living in Tokyo by helping them walk during earthquakes?

    Is EXACTLY what came to mind the second I saw these things.

    All I can observe is that you don't see them any more unless it's at an estate sale.

    These were used in physical therapy for awhile before some one decided to make a crappy version and go main stream.

    the concept is simple for phyiscal therapy, the vibrations make hte muscles around a joint make minute adjustments. If you were to do say a lunge with one foot on the vibrating pad (the hurt knee) the muscles would be forced to control the knee better. it has been proven to improve the results and effectiveness for rehab exercises. Especially after knee surgery. and some studies show a nice increase in preventing tendonitis and other ligament wear and tear by improving blood flow.

    Other then that someone has taken the simple articles written to show the significant improvements over traditional rehab techniques and dimwitted them down into what you see on these lovely over priced crap machines.
