What is Whole Body Vibration?
Whole Body Vibration uses Accelerated Biomechanical Muscle Stimulation to increase the gravitational load on your muscles, working your reflex activation by sending kinetic energy throughout your body to achieve many lasting benefits. Whole Body Vibration can stimulate the body in a variety of unique and beneficial ways not possible with other forms of exercise. The key to Whole Body Vibration effectiveness is G-force.
What type of machines do you use?
We use Hypervibe G17 machines. They are one of very few machines with the right combination of power and features needed to generate the effects on your body in a significant way. The key to Whole Body Vibration effectiveness is G-force. A review of the research literature indicates that insufficient G-force is the #1 reason for disappointing outcomes in many if not most cases.
How fast does the machine move?
The Frequency of vibration is a measure of how many times the platform moves up and down each second. Our Machines (Hypervibe G17) have a minimum frequency of 5Hz (Five times a second) and a maximum of 35Hz. You control how fast your machine goes. The frequencies that are best for YOU to train with will depend on your body type, your level of fitness and your desired outcomes. Most people can be quite sure that their muscles will increase in activation from 15 to 30Hz.

Are Pure Vibe classes appropriate for all ages and abilities, including those with injury?
Yes! Whole Body Vibration is safe for people of all ages. As powerful and dramatic as Whole Body Vibration training may sound, it is designed in a way to be very safe, comfortable and easy to use and can be set to very low levels of stimulation for beginners. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics: 100% of 65+-year-olds complain of at least one long-standing health condition. 66% complain of musculoskeletal conditions. 57% complain of circulatory conditions. 28% complain of osteoarthritis. Whole Body Vibration may be one of the safest, most affordable and time efficient ways to assist with the restoration and maintenance of better movement for those in poor condition.
How do you get results in a such a short period of time?
Imagine performing 33,000 muscle contractions in only 20 minutes. Our machines (Hypervibe - Performance) are unique in that they can provide a training stimulus ranging from a gentle 1G of a gravitational load right up to an intense 17G or 17 times Earth's gravity.
