Shake It Up!
Did you know that vibrations can help you lose weight effortlessly?
Picture this: giving top priority to your newborn’s needs, striking a balance between family, friends and career, and trying to regain your prenatal figure all at once. However, you only have so much time for all that you need to do, and exercise is usually the first thing you’d drop from your to- do list.
But there’s hope. Just 30 minutes a day on the OSIM uShape is enough – and you don’t even need to focus entirely on exercise to benefit from it.
Work it, baby
A small, sleek, vibrating platform, uShape promises a full- body workout that burns up to 136 calories in 10 minutes. The beauty of this platform is that you can lose calories just by sitting or standing on it while watching television – the platform’s vibrations make your muscles contract, meaning that you’re actually working them. This translates into more calories burnt in less time. Sounds like a dream, especially if you are too preoccupied with your baby to hit the gym!
Let’s not forget that better muscle tone improves blood circulation too. So just 30 minutes a day on the machine at home can make a big impact. If you prefer a more intense workout, you can do squats and lunges on the uShape ( see pictures, right).
Tailored to your needs
The uShape lets you customise workouts to your preferred level – beginner, intermediate or advanced – so you don’t overstrain your body. It comes with a resistance cord that you can use to build strength, and a DVD on how to reap maximum benefits from your workouts.
Burn, baby, burn
Besides helping you burn calories, the uShape also promises to improve your balance and flexibility, reduce the look of cellulite and “shake off” stress. Since you can use it anytime in the comfort of your own home, there’s nothing stopping you from toning and shaping up right now!
