ZAAZ is whole body vibration (WBV) fitness technology made modern, providing the power to transform bodies with less effort and in less time.
Engineered to deliver a high concentration of low-impact movement, ZAAZ oscillating technology is therapeutic and effective for Any Body and Everybody. The ZAAZ works the large and small twitch muscles. WBV activates 90% of all muscle groups and produces 30 involuntary reflexes per second using an oscillating vibration platform with 99 speeds and 8 preset programs.
WBV has been shown to be up to four times more effective than equivalent exercises performed on a stationary surface.(1)
Golf professionals and amateurs have experienced increased range and agility.
Seniors and people with restricted physical conditions experience increased mobility, flexibility, strength and circulation.
Six weeks of WBV exercise improves pain and fatigue in women with fibromyalgia.(2)
Cellulite reduction of 25.7% with just 3 sessions a week over 24 weeks. Combined with cardio that reduction boosted to 32%.(3)
Post-Menopausal women used WBV for 5 mins, 3 times a week over 6 months and had 2 percent more spinal bone while the control group had lost about a half a percent.(4)
For people who do not exercise at all, using ZAAZ seven to ten sessions per week can provide a fundamental level of activity the body needs and can provide many of the benefits of traditional exercise.
Vibration exercise is a fast and easy way to boost Human Growth Hormone the “youth” hormone while reducing Cortisol the “stress” hormone. When these are combined with better circulation and lymph drainage the way you look and feel improve and quickly become noticeable to others.
Muscle Reflexes - The platform movement causes repetitive bending and straightening of your joints. As the muscles attached to them quickly stretch it results in strong reflex muscle contractions. You´ve seen this happen when someone taps below your knee cap causing your leg to jerk forward. The heightened nerve and muscle activity results in a number of benefits such as:
•Increased muscle power – power is the ability to generate force quickly and is essential for sports involving sprinting, jumping or power lifting events like Strongman and Cross Fit. The rapid muscle contractions created by vibration training develop increased muscle power. Less time training means more time eating and recovering.
•Reduced warm-up time – exercising muscles burn up fats and sugars releasing heat. This increase in heat makes movement more comfortable and reduces risk of injury. A good preparation for other activities that can be done quickly.
•Increased energy – regularly making the muscles do work increases metabolism and stimulates brain activity associated with feeling good. The result is that you not only feel more energetic, you have more energy to do the things you want.
•Stronger bones – the combination of increased muscle force pulling on bones with the increase in lymph and blood flowing through them results in bones becoming stronger.
•Better agility – vibration training is well known for increasing balance which when combined with more muscle power makes you more agile.
•Improved flexibility – 18 sessions of vibration training with 17G resulted in a 58% increase in hamstring flexibility. Each session took only 3 minutes.
