The Galileo Devices are the top of the line equipment in vibration training.
Developed by Novotec, a German medical company, these high tech plates initiate muscle contractions through the stretch reflex, bypassing the brain entirely and resulting in 95% muscle engagement. Imagine standing on a plate and having your muscles be contracted for you, as you choose your body’s positioning and your trainer perfects your alignment, at a rate of up to 33 muscle contractions per second!
Galileo training ranges from therapeutic to high performance. When bodywork is performed using the plate, the result is a rapid myofascial release, as well as muscular re education.
Unwinding - a form of self-bodywork done on the plate, is a phenomenal way to rapidly retrain the body and release old movement patterns.
Standing directly on the plate and moving through a workout is the most effective way to exercise, with thousands of muscle contractions being generated in a 10 minute workout.
Proven to help people suffering from MS, Stroke, Back Pain, Fibromyalgia, Parkinsons and many other neurological issues, these machines burn fat and build muscle while putting the body under less stress than your standard “ sit to stand” movement.
