23 Jul Vibration training benefits everyone from NFL to neighbors next door
Whether it’s a trainer trying to help prospects get ready for the NFL Draft, or the average couple next door, accelerated vibration training can help people from all walks of life achieve better fitness.
Updated – 7/23/18 – Vibration training is especially popular with NFL teams, who love its ability to help with flexibility. That, in turn, drastically cuts down on the amount of pulled muscles and other injuries.
“It’s almost one of the best-kept secrets, but you can find lots of information about it,” fitness retailer Push Pedal Pull’s Doug Corson told 3G Cardio of vibration training. “There are tons of celebrities that endorse (vibration training), but probably the most popular is about half the NFL teams are incorporating this into their workout programs.
“In the NFL world it’s not just about trying to get as strong as possible, but they also want to decrease the chance of getting injured. Injury prevention is such a huge component of what these things can do because they do help to increase your range of motion, flexibility and balance. That’s why we are starting to see some of the physical therapists endorsing or putting these into their practices.”
The Super Bowl 50 qualifier Denver Broncos make a vibration training a big part of their fitness regimen.
Corson is a big fan of award-winning 3G Cardio Vibration Trainers. He sells them and trains on them.
“I’ve tried several different models because of my job,” said Corson, the sales director for Push Pedal Pull. “You just go out and kind of experiment with different ones. … For the overall value of 3G Cardio, I felt carrying their machines in our store was the direction we should go.”

Vibration trainers are incredibly versatile in how people can use them and workouts can be scaled to benefit people of nearly all ages and fitness backgrounds.
