Sunbed:

Vibration Plates:

Fit One has two  Vibration Plates which can be used to warm up or cool down. They will benefit your muscle performance and recovery time after playing sport or weight training, particularly on legs day.  Other benefits include:

  • Strength and toning. The vibration causes your muscles to quickly contract and relax to keep you balanced. Standing still with your knees slightly bent can achieve great toning results.
  • Weight loss and cellulite. Ten minutes each day, combined with a sensible diet, will reduce body fat including visceral fat.  Cellulite can be reduced over a six month period.
  • Health and rehabilitation. Use to aid recovery of damaged muscles and tendons, back pain and pain management and improve circulation.
