Modern gyms and physiotherapy centers use free weight, unstable devices, flywheel and pneumatic machines, elastic bands and vibratory technology in their workouts. This is the only way to properly customize the workouts.
A few years ago it was normal to find training centers with a multitude of single-brand training machines. This allowed users to choose a great variety of exercises but also mean that they were normally conditioned by the same type of external resistance.
While it is generally well known that we must vary our exercise in order to train well, it is also necessary to face different forms of force management, which is not possible if the same type of external resistance is used all of the time.
So, if you want to transform your center to offer a modern and renewed form of training make sure you have the new generation of vibratory technology, in addition to free weights, unstable surfaces, flywheel and pneumatic machines and elastic bands. However, note that not just any vibration machine will be suitable for these purposes. Vibration machines that allow you to select varying degrees of stability, sliding platforms and vibration bars are the ones that offer the most possibilities.
