Gravity Resistance Training (GRT)


There is a wide spread myth about Whole Body Vibration originating in Russia during the 70’s and used for the health of their cosmonauts and the performance of their olympic athletes. The reality is that modern Whole Body Vibration began in Germany during the mid-nineties. The pioneering machines were very powerful and designed to increase the gravitational forces acting on a user by applying rapid pulses of vertical force under the users feet, triggering a range of responses and benefits. Over the years as more manufacturers started to release less powerful Whole Body Vibration platforms, the original concept became somewhat lost.

Gravity Resistance Training refers to the actual training principle by which users of a Whole Body Vibration platform experience tremendous benefit to their muscles, bones, and bodies. What sets apart a GRT machine from a regular vibration machine, is its ability to produce high levels of gravity (acceleration), just like the pioneering technology from Germany. In simple terms, this means that the platform’s upward vertical force can simulate more than 10 times the strength of Earth’s gravity.

While manufacturers of low powered machines attempt to use smoke and mirrors, we at Pure Vibe & Hypervibe focus on the reality of Whole Body Vibration technology and what sets it apart from other approaches to health and fitness. We focus on its ability to provide true Gravity Resistance!

After all, is not Gravity the force we fight against everyday in our lives. Is not our failure to fight gravity responsible for many of the physical issues we face? No matter how you look at it, the fundamental need to maintain our ability to counter gravity is what defines our strength, stability, balance, function, and most importantly, our healthy lifestyle. It’s time to stop just shaking the body and begin to actually improve its performance and integrity. It’s time for Whole Body Vibration to become Gravity Resistance Training.

Benefits of GRT 

At the time this was written, the effects of GRT had been studied for almost 20 years, with hundreds of clinical papers published in scientific journals.
