The year was 1960. The Soviet Aerospace Program installed top-secret, cutting-edge technology to combat weakening effects of zero gravity termed “Advanced Vibration Technology.” Unlike the U.S. Space Program, which was mostly open and made public, the Soviet Space Program was secretive and public announcements were only made after success was achieved. The Soviet’s Sputnik 1 launched on October 4, 1957 beat the U.S. and stunned people world-wide, accelerating the Soviet Space Program to new measures as they entered the 1960’s. The Soviets rocketed to new heights with many “firsts” in the ’60’s.

In 1961 Gherman Titov of Vostok 2 became the first person to spend one full day in space and the first person to sleep in space. In 1963 Valentina Tereshkova of Vostok 6 became the first woman in space.

In 1964 the Soviets had the first multi-crew (3) in space on Voskhod 1. In 1965 the Soviets had the first probe hit another planet (Venus) on Venera 3. These long-duration-in-space first achievements were made possible for the Soviet Cosmonauts by utilizing Advanced Vibration Technology for their health. Strength training, cardiovascular training, flexibility and balance were all possible and maintaning and increasing bone density wasn’t an issue for the Soviet Space Program, since they had the machine that did it all! The Soviet Cosmonauts claimed that their Advanced Vibration Technology machine was responsible for allowing them to stay in space for over 400 days, more than 3 times as many days as the U.S. Astronauts were able to stay in space!

Just as the Soviets were slow to discuss success, they were very slow in revealing the machine that was so beneficial. It wasn’t until 1999 when the term “Advanced Vibration Technology” got into mainstream fitness. Then, experienced fitness trainers were able to adapt advanced techniques from elite athletes to the elderly and help thousands of people combat debilitating health effects in an effortless, non-invasive way. Dutch Olympic trainer Gus Van Der Meer is said to be responsible for bringing the technology to the fitness arena. The Advanced Vibration Technology machinery was developed and first used in the 1960’s by Russian Scientist Vladimir Nazarov.

One Machine can do it all – remove fat cells, strengthen bones, enhance the cardiovascular system, improve blood circulation, tone muscles, improve balance, increase flexibility, and burn up to 350 calories in 10-minutes!

Watch the One Machine in Action that Can Do It All Here:

The Advanced Vibration Technology equipment and training regimen is vastly recognized in Europe and beginning to spread in the states, starting with the West Coast. Top doctors like Dr. David Williams of Texas utilizes Advanced Vibration Technology several times a week and sees remarkable health benefits. Celebrities including Brad Pitt, Madonna, Claudia Schiffer, and Natalie Imbruglia workout with Advanced Vibration Technology. Madonna claims that it is Advanced Vibration Technology that gives her incredible shapes. Sports celebrities from the PGA tour pro golfers to the Chicago Bulls to the Green Bay Packers and many other pro athletes endorse Advanced Vibration Technology as a way to enhance sport performance.

As a pro athlete and strength and endurance World Record Holder, I can say that when I do Advanced Vibration Technology workouts, I know I am working fast and slow twitch muscle fibers simultaneously and getting much faster muscle contractions than I would ever get weightlifting or doing calisthenics. The whole body will vibrate, which stimulates the primary endings of muscle spindles. Then, alpha-motor neurons are activated resulting in muscle contractions multiple times per second. Strength and endurance are increased, which are imperative for postural stability. One of my clients that had trouble with balance noticed an immediate increase in balance, while doing one-legged squats on the machine – an exercise that would normally leave her wavering, but not anymore.

The machine with Advanced Vibration Technology has the scientific research to prove that it stimulates bone growth, increases bone mineral density, and helps battle against osteoporosis.

Micky, a client that hasn’t been able to do regular exercise in 4-months from pain associated with a hair-line fracture in her hip, is back to exercising due to this incredible machine and proper exercise instructions for her conditions. After Micky’s first workout on the machine she exclaimed, “I can’t believe how one effortless 10-minute workout on the machine has helped me so much! Now, I have absolutely no pain at all! Prior to my first session, instant pain was in my sacroiliac as soon as my feet go on the floor. Walking was very hard and painful. I tried to go line dancing and that was a big mistake. I had pain all day, everyday. There were no two ways about it, I was in constant pain. I workout on the machine under the direction of Alicia Weber and it is effortless. I have no stiffness. My pain is gone. I didn’t expect to get the results I got. I am very surprised! There is gain without pain when you do exercises on the machine with Advanced Vibration Technology! I do a 10-minute workout once a week with Alicia on the machine and I see phenomenal results and I feel great.”

According to “Components of postural dyscontrol in the elderly: a review” in Neurobial Aging 1989, “Advancing age is associated with impaired postural stability due to deficits in sensory function, central processing, neural pathways for motor control and musculoskeletal integrity.” Advanced Vibration Technology is an anti-aging tool. Advanced Vibration Technology utilizes the principle stated by Sir Issac Newton: force of an object is equal to its mass multiplied by acceleration, or f = m x a

One can improve functional force (stability, power, strength, and endurance) by either applying more mass or more acceleration to the body. Advanced Vibration Technology is also known as Acceleration Training in the health field since it applies acceleration to the body, while keeping mass (your body weight) the same. The cutting-edge training method allows 10-minutes of Advanced Vibration Technology A.K.A Acceleration Training = 1 hour of a gym workout. In addition, Advanced Vibration Technology avoids high impact and the possibility of aches and pains unlike a gym workout.

Advanced Vibration Technology training is not recommened for pregnant women, people with pacemakers, people with joint replacements, or people with epilepsy.

The New Celebrity for the Omega Fatty Acids!

October 28, 2008

Word is out about the wonders of Omega Fatty Acids! We know that the chemical structures of Omega Fatty Acids are needed to maintain cellular health and prevent inflammation and diseases in the body. Since the body doesn’t produce these nutrients, we have been supplementing with any of the following:

1. Essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Fish (e.g. trout, salmon, sardines, anchovies, mackerel, herring, tuna, and cod).

2. Essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Fish oils containing potent omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA)

3. Sources of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids (other than fish): avacodos (whole or oil), flaxseed, Brazil nuts, flaxseed oil, hemp seeds, hempseed oil, fortified milk products, Omega-3 Eggs, pumpkin seeds, soybean oil, sesame seed, walnuts, wheat germ oil

4. Cooking oils known for Omega-6 Fatty Acids include safflower, olive oil, sunflower, hemp, soybean, sesame, pumpkin, walnut, and flaxseed oils.

*The American Heart Association cautions against a high dietary intake of Omega-6 Fatty Acids. Experts recommend a ratio of three parts Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids to every one part Omega-6 Fatty Acid.

The above list of omega fatty acids probably looks familiar, but one new omega fatty acid is in a class by itself. This particular omega fatty acid is nothing new to the New Zealand fishermen. The New Zealanders have been eating it for years and know of its anti-inflammatory benefits all too well. The Maori people living along the New Zealand coast would rarely get arthritis and they would eat this particular omega 3 fatty acid regularly. The Green-Lipped Mussel (Perna Canaliculus) is the omega 3 fatty acid the New Zealanders have come to love! In recent years, the green-lipped mussel has been out on a ‘preventative healing entourage’ and making headlines for its healing qualities. By the end of November 2008, this green-lipped mussel will be world-renown as a New Zealand CEO releases a green-lipped mussel product that will enhance health and wellness like never before!

For now, we can just eww, ahh, and applaud this green-lipped mussel for its highly potent and effective omega 3 fatty acids that are up to 480 times more effective than other omega-3 fatty acids! Many research studies have indicated that the green-lipped mussel has 158 times more anti-inflammatory effectiveness than Fish Oil EPA!

The Green Lipped Mussel has been found to have beneficial effects in relieving the pain, inflammation and symptoms associated with:

Osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease)

Rheumatoid Arthritis


Ankylosing Spondylitis

Sports Related Injuries

Lyme Disease

Inflammatory Skin Conditions

Connective Tissue Repair

I will conclude with my green-lipped mussel discussion for now, but check back at the end of November to learn about the grand opening green-lipped mussel product! For more info, Contact Alicia a Nutrition Consultant at Alicia1@Awinningway.ws

Strengthen Your Hip Joint!

October 22, 2008

Patrick Henry said,”Give me liberty or give me death.”

You can let freedom ring after a hip replacement – if you are one of the 300,000 annual hip replacement patients in the US! Or if you just want to keep a healthy hip, learn some exercises that are sure to keep you hip and hop!

The hip joint has three degrees of freedom, which means that it moves in three different planes: the sagittal plane: flexion/extension; the frontal plane: abduction/adduction; and the transverse plane: external/internal rotation.

Don’t let the doctor keep you in stitches on the “hipnotic” battlefield – learn to strengthen the hip joint and laugh your way into old age! Shake your left leg, take two steps then throw a left hook out of left field as you perform fundamental movements from the hip joint.


A Normal Hip Joint

A Normal Hip Joint

The hip joint is a ball and socket joint between the head of the femur and the socket of the pelvis. The hip has a joint capsule, which is a flexible sac around the joint allowing multiple movements such as the following (from a standing position): flexion – forward leg movement; extension – backward leg movement; abduction – leg moves away from sides; adduction – leg moves toward other leg; internal rotation – toes pointing toward each other; and external rotation – toes pointing away from each other. Avoid excessive flexion, adduction and internal rotation of the hip for the first six weeks after a hip replacement surgery. General info for patients with hip replacements include not bending the hip beyond 90 degrees, not bringing legs and knees together (adduction, internal rotation), and not crossing legs (adduction). The first task is easing patients into weight bearing exercises such as walking. For people without a hip replacement, their walking can tell a lot about their hip health.

An Unhealthy Hip Joint

Walking transfers body weight from hip joint to hip joint. Walking is divided into two phases, which include the stance phase, where one leg is standing on the ground; and the swing phase, where one leg is off the ground swinging forward to make the next step.

During the swing phase of a walk, the toes are prevented from hitting the ground because the gluteus medius on the stance side contracts, tilting the pelvis upward and lifting the leg clear of the ground.

A weak gluteus medius causes the pelvis to dip downward during the swing phase. The gluteus medius can be weak due to either an L5 nerve root lesion in the spine, proximal myopathy (muscular dystrophy, hip osteoarthritis) or congenitial hip deformities.

Calculations have been made using vector diagrams during the stance phase of walking. They show that four times the body weight is applied to the load-bearing surface of the hip joint. Therefore, being overweight places an increased burden on the hip joints, leading to premature osteoarthritis. Throw ideas of osteoarthritis out the window and start losing weight and strengthening the hip in rewarding workouts!

Strengthening and gaining flexibility in the hip joint should be a priority through proper conditioning and balance training. Flexibility can be gained by stretching out one leg while standing on the other, then bending the outstretched leg 90 degrees.

Strengthening can be achieved by looping a Thera-Band loop around the ankles and alternating mini squats for 30-60 seconds. A balance exercise can be achieved by standing on one leg for 30-60 seconds.

Beware of hip joint red flags! Some of the red flags are at half mast when there are some of the following casualties to the body: pain and swelling, pain when bearing weight on lower extremities, and discomfort or inability to sleep on the hip.

Exercises can prevent the red flags when they form good conditioning habits and utilize cross training. Patients with hip replacements can build strength comfortably through cross training in the water. Therapeutic water training is the best form of exercise for gaining flexibility and range of motion, especially in patients with a concern for their hip joint health. Anyone with a goal of increasing their hip joint degrees of freedom can have an effortless return of hip advancements in water training.
