History of Vibration Fitness

Vibrating fitness machines were first researched back in the 1970’s to solve a big problem for the Russian Space Program. They wanted their astronauts to be able to extend their stay in outer space longer than 110 days. What would happen if they stayed longer was permanent damage to bone and muscle tissue because without gravity bone and muscle start to degrade and become weak. Elastic type machines could help some of the muscle loss but not the bone loss, which was much more serious. How could they create gravity where none existed? One brilliant scientist thought that maybe vibration at the correct frequency might stimulate bone growth and he was right. They built the first vibrating fitness machine and started the research and what they found was startling, it worked better they they could have eve imagined. They were able to quadruple their time in space to 420 days! At this time NASA was able to keep their astronauts in space no longer than 120 days and were desperately trying to find out how the Russians were doing this. The cost of going to space is very high, so increasing mission length made a lot of financial sense and sped up research goals. It took the fall of the iron curtain for their tightly held secret to be revealed and today NASA still uses the technology to keep their guys healthy.

Since then whole-body vibration has been adopted by doctors, professional trainers, pro sports teams, chiropractors and Olympic athletes. The cost of the machines used by these professionals was around $15,000 and out of range for the majority of people. VibraSlim changed all that back in 2004 with it’s affordable home vibrating machine that was more compact and lightweight. The previous vibration exercise machines weighed up to 400 lbs and were quite large, not very practical for home use. This brought this practically unknown technology within reach of millions and everything changed. Vibration Exercise has been growing at a rapid pace ever since, especially in the medical fields. Medical practitioners were a little slow at first but in the past 4 years have embraced it as they have seen the many benefits derived from the VibraSlim program.

To date there have been over 1000 medical research reports published on whole-body vibration and more are published every week. Visit our Research page to read more. We are now in the age of the vibration fitness plate and VibraSlim is leading the way.

History of VibraSlim Whole Body Machines

Since 2004 VibraSlim has the leader in vibration exercise machines and has been focused on educating the population and fitness professionals on what vibration can do to help people reach their health and fitness goals. VibraSlim has lead the industry in educational training programs and videos and pioneered key technology breakthroughs in equipment design. We have made huge investments into research and development of our equipment and this knowledge is visible in our product and obvious in our well trained employees.

VibraSlim may be the most trusted name in vibration fitness worldwide but is based right here in the USA. Our goal is to improve out nations health on a grand scale by showing people there are more enjoyable ways to get in shape. An disliked workout is a failed workout, because if you don’t like it, you won’t do it.

Why Should I buy a VibraSlim® Vibrating Machine?

Our dedication and focus has enabled us to have the highest quality machines on the market while still keeping our equipment affordable. Over the years we have learned the key to making fitness equipment that lasts for years of worry free use.

Design and engineering is key but most important is the materials you build with. We use only high grade steel, impact resistant plastic, quality rubber and grade A electronics. Then we back it all with our VibraSlim warranty, which includes our unmatched Lifetime Motor Warranty. How do we afford to give such a great warranty? Well, we learned a long time ago that repairs were VERY expensive for us. So we invested in our factory and our product to cut those costs. Today we have the lowest repair rate in the industry and no one is even close. Why are we so much better? One word… China. All of our competitors machines are made in China. They build them fast, cheap and ready for the garbage. They may look good but whats inside? The cheapest materials they are able to find… and then they hire the cheapest labor to put them together. We do not need to tell you the result.

Quality you can trust - VibraSlimWhen you buy a VibraSlim, you have bought a machine that not only will last but you know it has been calibrated perfectly. Many of our competitors machines do not produce the correct vibration specifications, even though they claim they do. This has been proven time and time again. If you want results you need the proper equipment not a cheap knock-off that not only does not operate at the correct frequencies but will not last for a year without breaking down. This is a story we have heard way too many times from unhappy customers of VibraSlim imitators. Don’t be another sad story, get a VibraSlim.

The VibraSlim® is the best quality vibration exercise machine on the market
