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.

You can contact Alicia Weber to make an appointment for an Advanced Vibration Technology workout if you are in Central Florida. She also hosts free educational events where people can try the innovative machine. She can be reached at Alicia1@Awinningway.ws or call 352-874-4363.

Coordination Takes Some Practice

October 12, 2008

A rabbit asked the turtle if it could hurdle. The turtle had to ‘think’ if it must use its shoulder girdle.

Coordination is a thinking process which combines harmonious movements. Coordination is synchronization of muscular movements after the muscles receive signals from the brain.

A decline in coordination can be related to lack of nutrition or not using certain skills, unless one has a disease that affects coordination such as multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, or cerebral palsy.

A giraffe’s movements become awkward as it bends and turns its elongated neck. In people, head turning, reaching, and crawling are innate movements, but other movements, such as balancing on one foot, must be conditioned through reflexes and response.

It takes great effort to bend over!

According to the 1997 edition of Exercise Physiology for Health, Fitness, and Performance, a reflex is a rapid, involuntary response (hitting your knee with a rubber mallet) that results in a specific motor response (getting a leg jerk), with that response being dependent on the type and duration of the stimulus received (the harder you hit, the harder the leg jerks).

Body movement feedback moves in and out of the spinal cord to the brain and then through spinal nerves to your limbs to conduct the necessary movement. If you are no longer able to carry out a certain movement, it is time to work on your neuromuscular function through balance training.

A lungfish is known to have fins and feet, but it is a better swimmer than a walker. It can be seen bumbling to and fro as it wobbles on sand. Some people claim they feel the same way about their walking.

The good news is that balance exercises improve coordination. Several beneficial balance exercises include side jumps with legs together, side squat lunges, and step-ups on an aerobic box.

If your walking “beats the bands,” but you are like a butter-fingered koala bear trying to catch a ball, it is time to work on hand-eye coordination. Helpful exercises include bouncing a ball against a wall, squatting, then catching the ball on the way up from the squat; or seeing how many many times you can bounce a tennis ball on a racket before it bounces off.

After honing skills, it is appropriate to hone nutrition. When it comes to hand-eye coordination, beta-carotene and lutein can strengthen eyes. Other nutritional elements that have been known to enhance endurance and prevent fatigue and lack of focus are magnesium and calcium.

Olympic biathlon contenders have improved their concentration and precision in the rifle event after taking B-complex vitamins.

When it comes down to total body harmony, joints need to be able to move fully and freely, and this can be accomplished through total body conditioning with an emphasis in neuromuscular training.
