FreeMotion Fitness Introduces Whole Body Vibration Platform

(December, 2006 - COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.) - FreeMotion Fitness™, the provider of the first, and only, full circuit of integrated functional training equipment, is proud to announce the release of the FreeMotion i.Tonic Whole Body Vibration Platform.

Combining function with style, the FreeMotion i.Tonic provides a balanced Whole Body Vibration training session. This innovative platform features functional vibration technology with the patent-pending air suspension system to reduce noise and evenly disburse vibration through the platform. The precision, synchronized motors create an exact vertical displacement for consistent vibration. The stainless-steel frame is strong, dampening the transmission of vibration to the floor and lightweight, making it easy to place in a facility.

The FreeMotion i.Tonic Whole Body Vibration Platform is user-friendly, equipped with a simple display of easy-to-read dials and LED screen. Simply set the frequency (Hz), amplitude and duration before pushing the start button to begin. Users can also press a button on the frame to repeat the vibration cycle when performing exercises seated or lying down.

WBV works as the body's muscles have an involuntary response where the muscles relax and contract at the same frequency (Hz) that the platform is set. In simplified terms, muscles will relax and contract 900 times when standing on the FreeMotion i.Tonic set at 30 Hz for 30 seconds. This response recruits nearly 100% of the muscle fibers in contraction.

A time-tested modality of fitness, WBV first emerged in the 1960's where the Russian space program used vibration to help speed up recovery after prolonged weightlessness. Olympic athletes later used vibration as a low-impact way to increase strength, flexibility and recovery time.

Over the last several decades, scientists have discovered and validated these exceptional benefits, which include:

  • Time-efficient workout
  • High muscle activation with less fatigue
  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Builds core strength, stability and balance
  • Improves muscle mass and tone
  • Decreases Cortisol (stress hormone)
  • Increases testosterone and growth hormones
  • Easy on joints and enhances joint mobility/range of motion
  • Facilitates blood circulation
  • Stimulates bone growth to combat osteoporosis
