Workout Glove

Giving exercisers total training flexibility, the new G2 workout glove is really two gloves in one. Each component glove protects and supports exercisers' hands during cardio and/or strength training workouts, and when used together, both gloves provide maximum protection. The under glove can be used alone on cardiovascular training equipment to prevent blisters and calluses from holding onto cardio machine handles. The over glove is a leather and neoprene sleeve with TechGel molded palm pads that provide cushioning for strength training.

Vibration Platform

VibroGym International has released the VibroGym, a platform that generates vibrations that are transferred from the platform to the body. Depending on the selected vibration, muscles will contract and expand 30 to 50 times per second. This additional muscle contraction expedites fat loss while increasing bone density and muscle tone. Compared to traditional training methods, exercises performed on the VibroGym achieve better results in less time and with no extra effort. Moreover, the vibrations increase the production of regenerative and repair hormones, improve blood circulation in skin and muscles, strengthen bone tissue, improve lymph drainage, and increase the basal metabolic rate.
