If you are interested in intensifying your exercise routine, look beyond your regular dumbbells. A new range of vibrating dumbbells can now amp up your fitness regimen by as much as 50 percent. The BodyVib weights are not your ordinary dumbbells. They vibrate at 36Hz with amplitudes of 1.2mm to ensure a more intensive workout.
BodyVib dumbbells are the result of two years of research and development. Made in Germany, this set of fitness gear is scientifically tested. Their manner of working is similar in many ways to that of massage plates. The vibrations from the BodyVib weights ensure that the muscles of the hands and arms respond by contracting and relaxing. This helps the user burn a greater amount of fat within a shorter span. The resulting afterburn time also lasts longer. Apparently, even sports stars such as three-time Olympic riflery champion Ralf Schumann have trained with these weights.
This award-winning concept is not only a boon to any fitness regime, but also effective in saving energy. Once you charge your BodyVid dumbbells, they are good for two and a half hours. But you do not have to work out for that long either. If you have a few minutes to spare in between chores, simply lift the BodyVid weights, switch them on and let the vibrations work their magic.
The unique concept has earned the BodyVid weights the Plus X-Award 2010, Swiss Fitness Tribune Magazine’s Innovation Award 2009 and the reddot design award 2011. BodyVid dumbbells are available in 3 weight variations: 1.5kg, 2.8kg and 4.6kg costing between $1,060 and $1,190. Each purchase includes 2 dumbbells, a charger plug, a leather table mat, a training DVD, the instruction manual and a poster.
