Does anybody remember the old health clubs that had those machines that had belts that "jiggled" parts of the body (every time i think of it, I start to laugh). For the life of me I don't know why they discontinued them. I am sure they worked because I worked downtown and a lot of people bragged that they got firmed up with the machines What's the story with them...are they any oldies but goodies (like me...) remember them....??

Research on vibration and exercise shows that vibration must be at very low intensity, so low it is almost imperceptible. There really is no quick or simple fix, although I agree with you they look pretty funny.
