Serious competitive advantages for serious athletes

Achieving the highest levels of athletic performance means committing to the highest standards of training. Not surprisingly, more and more competitive athletes are including Galileo whole-body vibration technology in their training regimen.

Efficient improvement in power, agility & coordination

Supported by over 450 independent, peer-reviewed and published studies, Galileo vibration training is proven to help competitive athletes increase muscle strength, improve performance and enhance movement patterns. Galileo platforms and dumbbells utilize rapid, repetitive vibration technology to improve muscle coordination, enabling movements to become faster and more accurate with less pressure on joints and ligaments than ordinary walking. And just as important, Galileo allows you to explore or expand your performance horizons in just 5-10 minutes per training session – a highly-efficient way to achieve sustained improvement in force, power, agility and coordination.

Proven to boost endurance, in the lab and in competition

Galileo training has proven to significantly increase endurance capacity. In a recent study of the ETH in Zurich, the Swiss sports physiologist, Marco Toigo, trained cyclists using high additional loads. After short training units of just 90 minutes of effective training time over a span of 5 weeks, the cyclists’ endurance capacity increased substantially. Triathletes have achieved similar results by incorporating Galileo and high intensity training (HIT) into the EndurEx training program.

Rapid muscle regeneration & refreshment

Every athlete understands the importance of rapid recovery after intense exercise or in between competitions. By stimulating metabolism and blood flow, training with Galileo accelerates the anabolic and regenerative processes within the muscles and surrounding tissues. Not only will you experience fast, efficient regeneration, but you can avoid delayed muscle pain by applying low frequencies to loosen, relax and refresh your muscles.

Galileo training can also help athletes resume training after long breaks, with reduced risk of injury due to the technology’s optimized interaction with muscles and rapid tissue regeneration. As a result, athletes can resume training sooner, and are more revitalized going into subsequent training sessions.

Pioneering technology, perfected

Galileo pioneered the science of whole-body vibration training, perfecting it to provide competitive athletes worldwide with the benefits of mechano-stimulation – the rapid muscle contractions generated through our vibration technology.

Based on the principle of natural walking, our platform’s side-alternating vibration pattern causes the pelvis to move as it does when walking, but much more rapidly. To compensate, the body reacts with alternating, reflex-controlled muscle contractions that are practically effortless on your part, but which activate muscles throughout your entire body.

As a result, you gain the benefits of an intense workout (strength training, improved circulation, increased metabolism) without straining your cardiovascular system or your joints.

How does it work?

While Galileo devices reflect the state of the art in mechano-stimulation science, all of our research and technology works together based on a single, very simple principle: natural walking movement. When you stand on the Galileo platform, its side-alternating movement pattern produces a stepping motion which, in turn, causes the pelvis to tilt back and forth as it does when walking, but more rapidly. To compensate for this, the body reacts with automatic, rhythmic, reflex-controlled muscle contractions over 12 Hz, alternating between the left and right side of the body.

Since these muscle contractions are reflex-controlled, the child is not consciously activating the muscles. The contractions are triggered via the stretch reflex directly through the spinal cord when standing to mimic walking. Galileo devices are engineered to stimulate that same response through the nervous system automatically, and in a much more comfortable, organized way, literally causing the full muscle chain to contract and relax in the same pattern used for walking.

Galileo devices equipped with wobble variation allow gains to be even further accelerated. Since muscles adapt to continuous stimuli, wobble variation helps muscles “learn” more efficiently and effectively by altering neuromotor responses. Adding wobble variation to Galileo vibration therapy is shown to improve balance, coordination, range-of-motion and functional movement activities.

“Galileo Training allows me to regain, retain, and surpass my all-time previous best not only as a bodybuilder but as an athlete!”

Toney Freeman, TFX-Man

“The Galileo engages every muscle you have, it keeps you warmed up, you gain balance and coordination, you’re engaging your core. And for me, the vibrating plate helps me to lift in the best possible position.”

Kathy Caraccioli, Powerlifter
