Galileo Vibration Therapy & Training – Basic Rules and Exercises

Your first Galileo “side-alternating” whole body vibration training session should be done with a trained practitioner and contraindications must be excluded.

  1. Beginners should always start with a narrow foot position, e. g. feet together, or at 1 to 1.5.
  2. Keep head vibration to a minimum by bending knees, bringing weight onto your toes or narrowing foot position.
  3. Do not straighten your legs when foot position is wider than 2.5.
  4. Always chose a symmetrical foot position, moving out evenly from position 0.
  5. Frequency is chosen according to your training goal.
  6. Practice all exercises slowly and consciously with intent.
