The use of Whole Body Vibration Technology for humans is rapidly gaining in popularity and is known to be highly effective in boosting mental and physical health.
When using vibration technology, you will have a host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of other measurable outcomes such as increased muscle strength and flexibility, improved range of motion, decreased cellulite, increased bone mineral density, reduced pain, soreness and toxins and faster recovery.
Using vibration technology causes the vibrations to transmit waves of energy throughout the body thereby activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, enhancing your own overall performance in sessions as short as 10 minutes a day, 3 times per week. Many top athletes use vibration technology to increase explosive strength, muscular endurance and agility.
Vitafloor has teamed up with BioRider Fitness to incorporate Whole Body Vibration Technology into fitness programs for riders specifically. Functional fitness for riders keeps the body sound for the full core endurance that is required in the saddle. Using the Vitafloor vibrating plate while working out gives a rider’s body more mobility and at the same time increases the strength around the joints.
Use the tools you have at the barn to take your physical performance to the next level. Ten minutes a day goes a long way to improve your peak performance.
The BioRider Fitness program was designed for riders to pin point muscle groups that have specific responsibilities in the saddle. Some muscle groups are engaged for supporting the position of the rider, while others are precise aids to the horse. When a rider incorporates physical training to their riding regimen, communication is taken to the next level. Every barn, ranch or farm should have the necessary equipment for the horse and rider to be sound and fit. Fitness equipment and a Vitafloor vibrating platform should be readily available for the training of any equine athlete.

My Vitafloor is an intrinsic part of our training and fitness programme. All the horses on the yard use it every week throughout the year; this includes the hunters, eventers and my children's ponies. I feel the floor improves muscle stability and tone. It is a vital piece of equipment for Team Taylor and I would not be without it.
The Vitafloor® is a great addition for our competition horses. It really helps to keep them in top shape, sound and healthy!
We use Vitafloor® every day and it helps our horses to recover after tough training.
The Vitafloor® is very user-friendly and practical in design. Since using it, my horses are fitter and more relaxed with improved musculature. It also helps prevent tying-up. …our family-owned racehorse ‘Mikado’ has shown great improvement using Vitafloor®.
Peas & Carrots became racehorse of the year twice in Sweden with help from our Vitafloor®!
We use the Vitafloor® on all our trotters and it makes them stronger and smoother.
I can definitely feel the lack of strength, flexibility and especial lack of muscle mass that Henry is displaying this year compared to last year when he was on a Vitafloor each day.
