The NEW Vibrapower Slim 2!

Health & Fitness, News, Presenter Blogs

Hayley tells us all about the BRAND NEW Vibrapower Slim 2!

“I’m so excited… I love Birthday Celebrations! I love getting and writing the perfect card, making the cake and finding a perfect present, and for our Birthday I LOVE Free P&P!

We have the perfect present launching on Saturday night over our Birthday weekend, it’s the world exclusive launch of the the Vibrapower Slim 2, one of your favourite Vibrapower’s from my favourite fitness brand!

The Vibrapower Slim 2 is slimmer and lighter but also designed so you can control your work out from your wrist! It’s amazing! It’s so easy to use and to operate, and an easy ways to help you get into shape, help you feel fitter and help you to become a healthier you.

You can now operate the machine with a remote wrist band ‘watch’ that comes with it too! You can count those calories disappearing on the onboard screen whilst you just stand, sit or lean on your Vibrapower Slim 2! Start moving, start thinking about what you’re eating and get that happy balance into your life – it is possible to make those changes.

Why do I love the Vibrapower range so much?

It’s quick and simple to get a full body work out, I don’t even have to leave the house and can do it in my PJ’s! I love it because there are so many great stories as so many people have seen such great results, succeeding to get to how they wanted to be.

It was only the other day, when I took my car into the garage for a service, that one of the team called me into her office and said ‘I bought a Vibrapower from you, it’s fabulous!’ She told me of her story, that because of an accident she couldn’t run like she used to or lift weights any more. So after watching a show she decided to give the Vibrapower a go and loves it! She loves being able to exercise again and actually finds it relaxing after a day in the office and really has seen great results too. That’s why I love Vibrapower, it makes me so happy that it works for so many people.

For me, my perfect day starts with a workout on my Vibrapower, it makes me feel fresher, fitter and happier to start my day. Though I’m using energy whilst on it, I feel it gives me more energy back! I seem to be able to get so much more done on the days where I start with my Vibrapower.

Why will you love the Vibrapower Slim 2?

It’s slimmer, lighter and with a roller it’s so easy to store and move. It’s a great size of platform to work on which I think gives you more versatility and can create even more workout levels.

The wrist band ‘watch’ control is at your finger tips and so easy to work, PLUS we’ve brought it out in all you favourite colours.

Not only do we have an amazing deal for the launch, but we also have absolutely NO P&P for our Birthday only!

So please join our Birthday 🎉 Celebrations, with all our Fabulous Family, share our Friendship and come and have fun. All starts Wednesday at 5pm…

Catch the launch of our Vibrapower Slim 2 on Saturday night (1st April) at 9pm….

You’re all invited! Hayley x”

Why Paul loves the Vibrapower range

Health & Fitness, Presenter Blogs

Ideal World presenter Paul Becque tells us why his Vibrapower equiptment has helped him lead a fitter and healthier life..

“Last week I couldn’t resist our Blockbuster Deal (which means our lowest ever price, but only whilst stocks last) on our top-of-the-range Vibrapower fitness equipment. This model is called the “HIIT” which provides High-Intensity Interval Training for the whole body.

Since retiring from the cruise ships in 2004, I’ve had a constant battle with my weight. Despite being a busy bee, I work out much less and am far less active than I used to be aboard the ships. Consequently, the pounds piled on and my waistline expanded – for a while I called it middle-age spread and accepted it as natural.

The Power of Focus

However, in 2014, as I approached the big 5-0, I decided that I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror and made a conscious decision to improve my health and fitness by simply being mindful of what I eat, drink and do. I began to pay attention to my calorie intake, started drinking less wine and more water, and added exercise to my daily routine with the original Vibrapower Disc. Since then I’ve been able to get my weight down from 13 stone to the NHS recommendation (for my personal profile) of 10 stone and 10 lbs and I’ve never felt better!

Because I thank the Vibrapower Disc for playing such a big part of my success, I felt that I deserved an upgrade to the top of the range model with an onboard computer (which I like to call my motivation monitor), and bluetooth speakers (to play smooth jazz from my iPhone).

Smart Exercise

Today’s Vibration Exercise (VbX) equipment differs dramatically from the old-fashioned vibrating-belt machines (I’m showing my age now!), which wrapped around your mid-section and pulsated back and forth. Essentially, the pulsing effect from the belt did nothing more than push your flesh around.

However, today’s vibration fitness machines, shake your whole body between 30 and 50 times per second. To compensate for this movement, your muscles involuntarily contract and relax as you naturally maintain your balance. It’s this constant attempt to balance yourself that forces your muscles to work hard enough to assist with weight loss and significant toning. That’s what I call “Smart Exercise”.

According to the theory behind Vibration Training, by performing calisthenic exercises such as squats, crunches and push-ups whilst sitting or standing on the Vibrapower fitness equipment, you can substantially increase the weight-loss potential of your activity.

Without doubt, it’s the easiest way I know to exercise. I’m loving the upgrade and my original disc is going to my Mum, who’s already tried it out and liked it!

Be well, Paul”
