How does the Vitality Step Work As Sir Isaac Newton taught us, F=M*A, or Force equals mass times acceleration. In terms of exercise, Effort= Weight * Motion. By focusing on the weight side of the equation, one can rapidly build muscle of strength. On the Vitality Step, the body weight is kept constant, and instead we focus on the motion side of the equation. As the plate shifts you out to balance, your body involuntary relaxes and contracts its muscles up to 50 times per second throughout your core, sides, thighs, and legs. By using the arms straps, we can target up to 97% of the muscles in your body. The plate does not force you to work any harder than normal, just faster than you could on your own. Since we are going for more repetition, not more weight, you will tone and firm, slim and thin, losing inches through the body. Just 10 minutes on the Vitality Step will firm and tone as much as a 45-minute walk! Due to this subconscious contraction of the muscles, many more muscle fibers are used than in a conscious, voluntary movement (Issurin & Tenenbaum 1999). The immediate effect is therefore that the muscles can be used quickly and efficiently, rendering them capable of producing more force. Another immediate effect is an improvement of circulation. The rapid contraction and relaxation of the muscles up to 50 times per second basically works as a pump on the blood vessels and Lymphatic vessels, increasing the speed of the blood flow through the body (Kerschan-schindl etal 2001). Both Stewart (2005) and Oliveri (1989) describe the appearance of vasodilatation (widening of the blood vessels) as a result of vibration, meaning better flow with less restriction, which may even lower blood pressure.
