We bet you have an unused or rarely used treadmill, exercise bike, or stepper (remember those?) collecting dust or buried beneath a pile of storage boxes or other unused junk! I know we did until we got our own Whole Body Vibration Machine.
Say What? Whole Body Vibration? I know, you're thinking... it's got to be another gimmicky fitness machine. Think again!
With the simplest of motions you can take that first step to better health and a better sporting life. Let MVP Sports fill you in on how you too can easily take a positive step (or two or three) towards a better lifestyle.
"I use my TZone WBVM more than any other piece of fitness equipment I've ever owned... and I've purchased most of them. My VT-40 beats them all hands down. Using it daily not only makes me feel great but it's taken my Bowls, Golf and Curling games up a notch or two as well!" ... The Delivery Doctor.
Perfect for apartments or travel!
At MVP Sports, you can try out the VT-8 in our Curling Pro Shop. Throughout the season WNCC and visiting curlers are welcome to come in and experience the benefits of Whole Body Vibration (WBV).
The Delivery Doctor takes our VT-8 to WOBA each year to the delight of Burl, Al and other WOBA Champions! He also takes it to displays and other events (OLB AGM's) for everyone to try.
The VT-8 can also be disassembled for travel with a screwdriver and Allan key (included) in less than 10 minutes. The VT-8 comes with a remote for easy on/off and speed control throughout your WBV session.
Solid Performance All Round!
The VT-15 and VT-20 sport a sturdy frame with only slight differences between the two units. These units are used in many of the T-Zone Fitness Centres throughout Canada and are a home favourite.
The VT-15 has 70 speeds and 8 pre-set programs while the VT-20 bumps up to 99 speeds and includes settings for relaxing massage, therapy and of course fitness training.
Built in to the VT-15 is a body fat monitor. The electronic panel display on the VT-20 provides instant feedback and allows you to monitor your steps taken, your pulse and includes a calorie counter.
The Total Workout Machine
It doesn't get any better than this!
The Delivery Doctor uses the VT-40 every day, incorporating stretch bands, medicine balls and some small weights into his daily routines.
Check out our video section for some of the exercises he does to improve his Bowls, Golf and Curling!
T-Zone WBV has enabled Dan and Brenda to save space in their home by giving away much of their old, rarely used fitness equipment!
10 Minutes a day using Whole Body Vibration on your T-Zone equals 60 minutes of walking, giving you 50 extra minutes a day to do the things you really want to do... only better!The Delivery Doctor
Whole Body Vibration with a T-Zone oscillating machine is a total life enhancing experience. - Just ask anyone who has ever owned a T-Zone!
Although the first concept of Whole Body Vibration (WBV) was originally introduced by the Greeks a millenia ago, it wasn't until the early 1960's when modern studies in Germany began developing it in earnest. Shortly after, the Russians used WBV to help rehabilitate their cosmonauts after returning from space. WBV was used to help repair muscle tissue and loss of bone density from the effects of weightlessness in space. At the time, Russian cosmonauts were able to stay in space over twice as long as their American counterparts!
In the mid 70's Russian and other Eastern European athletes were using WBV to assist their athletes to gain more power, flexibility and enhance their overall performance... to great effect!
Today many sports teams across the world, as well as numerous, informed chiropractic and physio studios are using WBV to assist with the rehab of their patients.
We use our T-Zone VT-40 every day. - Dan and Brenda Milligan
Ok... maybe after a party or a night out on the town. That wouldn't be sage!... but perhaps the night out on the town wasn't such a good idea either?
You should probably wait half an hour or so after eating... maybe longer if you've just finished a festive meal!
Other than that I really can't think of a time when you can't or shouldn't use your T-Zone!
We have owned a treadmill, a recumbent bike, a rowing machine, a Gravity Edge weight machine and numerous other fitness machines... and in each case they soon collected dustballs. Not so with our T-Zone as it is in daily use by both Brenda and I and has been for the last 5 years! We'll bet you can't say that about your own fitness machines! - Dan and Brenda
Although we don't really need two, we actually have two T-Zone WBVMs. Our main T-Zone is the VT-40, complete with an assortment of diverse programs that enable us to change up our fitness routine daily if we wish. We have our VT-40 in our bowls showroom in our home. Even though it's the largest of the T-Zone machines it takes up so little space it doesn't seem like it gets in the way of any of the coaching sessions I provide for customers. Take a look at the photo on the right to see what I mean
We also have a VT-8 (The Pod!) in our Curling Pro Shop where space is at a premium. This is a great little machine that due to it's light weight I can disassemble (taking off handles only) and cart to shows, tournaments and displays on a moment's notice. At the same time it is stable enough to do most of what we do on our VT-40.
Regardless of which T-Zone you choose the footprint is sooooo much smaller than most other fitness machines you might have had in the past.
... so check out the "20 Benefits" section below. Ok, ok... so there are more than 20 benefits listed there... but quite honestly there just isn't enough space to list the plethora of benefits of using a T-Zone whole body vibration machine. It all really comes down to your health.
We're guessing you do and we want to help you achieve your fitness and health goals. We know there is no better exercise machine out there than a T-Zone WBVM to achieve those goals. T-Zone machines are safe, quiet, and have a smaller footprint than other fitness machines. Whole Body Vibration is simply the best way to get in shape and stay in shape... safely and wisely!
"It is so much more useful than other fitness equipment." - The Delivery Doctor
If after having read about T-Zone here, and checked out some of the links we've provided if you're still not sure about whether T-Zone will help you improve your health we invite you to try one out!
Seriously, try one out and you'll know exactly why whole body vibration, and more specifically WBV with a T-Zone is the perfect fit for you.
You are more than welcome to try one of our machines. Come on down to our Curling Pro Shop and try out the VT-8 or make an appointment to use the VT-40 in our Bowls Showroom. Nothing would make us happier than to see the smile on your face as you feel the benefits of using one of our machines.
Anyone can use a T-Zone whole body vibration machine (WBVM). Young... old... and everyone in between can experience the benefits of regular use of their WBVM.
If you can walk you can use a T-Zone! Alban Frigault, (Mr. T-Zone)
The list of types of T-Zone users is limitless. Some use it for weight loss. In a recent National T-Zone contest a local resident lost a whopping 61.5 inches... yes you read that correctly... 61.5 inches! Others have noticed appreciable relief from Osteoperosis, elderly who are concerend about loss of bone density as they age, sports folk who swear by it for both warmups and warmdowns, those wishing to build strength while doing an aerobic activity, Chiropractors and Physiotherapists who use it both as a pre-appointment patient routine and as an intergral part of their therapy programs.
The list of people using T-Zone whole body vibration goes on and on and includes doctors (stress relief, massage etc), athletes and sports teams (warmups, warmdowns, full workouts), office workers (sedentary work habits lead to many physical problems and these workers notice immediate results from the use of their T-Zone), and especially those who don't exercise because they believe they don't have the time.
T-Zone is perfect for practically anyone!
Like Alban said... "If you can walk you can use a T-Zone!" I believe him but there are a few contraindications that anyone should be aware of... not just with T-Zone but with any fitness program. See your physician first! You've all heard that before and using a T-Zone is no different. Some of the common contraindications include: if you're pregnant; if you have active cancer; an implant or any medical condition. It doesn't mean you can't use a T-Zone to help you, but we do recommend that you consult with your health practioner first before embarking on this or any new program!
I use it every morning after waking up... every morning! I play a lot of golf, curl a lot and do a yeoman's share of demonstrating and coaching bowls. I can't imagine what it would be like to do any of these activities without first using my T-Zone.
The above daily routine works for me whether I'm golfing, bowling or curling. I would not be able to function and excel in any of the sports I love without my T-Zone. I've even gotten into the habit of taking our VT-8 with me to WOBA. Everyone thinks I'm flogging it (truth be told I am!) but quite frankly it's really quite selfish of me in that the first thing I do every morning at WOBA is head into the clubhouse and get on my T-Zone! That is if I can kick Al or Burl or one of the other converts off of it first! - Dan
