If you find you need to adjust the length
of your resistance band, take part A in
one hand and start to thread through
the band from underneath. This should
create a small loop at point B. Pull point
D away from part A (whilst keeping hold
of part A) so that the loop disappears.
This will shorten the length of the
resistance band overall.
To lengthen your resistance band,
thread a small amount of band through
part A as before to create a loop at
point B. Then pull the band at point C so
that the handle moves towards part A.
This should increase the loop and now
you will need to thread the loop through
part A so it disappears.
Connect resistance bands onto the
base where there are resistance band
hooks (10) as shown previously in
Make sure that when attaching the
resistance bands, the carabiner is secure
and locked into place.

When you are ready to progress, we recommend increasing the speed of the
vibration, rather than the duration of your workout.
We recommend doing no more than 10 minutes of exercise three times a day
on your Vibrapower Coach
PLEASE NOTE: not all vibration trainers work in the same way. The timings relate to
the Vibrapower Coach only.
Note: Vibrapower Coach is a vibrating fitness appliance; the more you increase the
speed, the louder the noise caused by the vibrations will be.
TOP TIP: Until you are used to vibration training technology, we suggest you start on
the slowest speed and “test” the unit’s effects for a few seconds by gently stepping
onto the machine one foot at a time.
One of the most important parts of your workout is to prepare your body for exercise
WARMING UP the muscles substantially decreases the chances of injury and only
takes a few moments to do. it is recommended to perform so light cardiovascular
exercise to warm your muscles and encourage blood flow.
COOLING DOWN helps removes the lactic acid build-up in the muscles by
oxygenating the muscles after your exercise routine. Lactic acid is what makes you
ache after a workout, cooling down should be undertaken soon after the last set of
exercises you intend to complete.
Warming up and cooling down exercises are identical and easy to remember. Both
warming up and cooling down should be done slowly and accurately, there is no
hurry to complete these exercises, it is more important to complete them. In addition,
it is good practise to move around after the cool down exercises to further dissipate
the lactic acid.
TOP TIP: Use a chair or a wall to help keep your balance if you need to.
VIBRACOACH IM - 1117.indd 13
08/11/2017 18:24:02
Stand close to a wall, chair or other
solid object. Use one hand to assist your
balance. Bend the opposite knee and
lift your heel towards your buttocks.
Reach back and grasp the top of your
foot with the same side hand. Keeping
your inner thighs close together, slowly
pull your foot towards your buttocks until
you feel a gentle stretch in the front of
your thigh. You do not have to touch
your buttocks with your heel. Stop pulling
when you feel the stretch. Keep your
kneecap pointing straight down and
keep your knees close together. (Do not
let the lifted knee swing outward).
Hold the stretch for 20 to 30 seconds.
Repeat the exercise for the other leg.
Sit on the floor and bend your legs so
that the soles of your feet are together.
Place your hands on your ankles. Lean
forward from the waist and press down
lightly on the inside of your knees. You
should feel a stretch in the muscles of
your inner thighs.
VIBRACOACH IM - 1117.indd 14
08/11/2017 18:24:03
Stand approximately one arm’s length
away from a wall or chair with your
feet hip-width apart. Keeping your toes
pointed forward, move one leg in close
to the chair while extending the other
leg behind you. Bending the leg closest
to the chair and keeping the other leg
straight, place your hands on the chair.
Keep the heel of the back leg on the
ground and move your hips forward.
Slowly lean forward from the ankle,
keeping your back leg straight until
you feel a stretch in your calf muscles.
Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat the
exercise for the opposite leg.
Lay flat on your back with your hips
relaxed against the floor. Bend one leg
at the knee. Keeping both shoulders
flat on the floor, gently grasp the bent
knee with your hands and pull it over
your body and towards the ground.
You should feel a stretch in your hips,
abdominal and lower back. Hold for 20
to 30 seconds and release. Repeat the
exercise for the opposite side.
VIBRACOACH IM - 1117.indd 15
08/11/2017 18:24:04
Stand with your legs hip width apart.
Extend one leg out in front of you and
keep that foot flat against the ground.
With your hands resting lightly on your
thighs, bend your back leg and lean
forward slightly from your hips until you
feel a stretch in the back of your thigh.
Be sure to lean forward from the hip
joint rather than bending at your waist.
Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat the
exercise for the opposite leg.
Stand with your feet shoulder width
apart and your knees slightly bent.
Lift one arm overhead and bend
your elbow, reaching down behind
your head with your hand toward the
opposite shoulder blade. Walk your
fingertips down your back as far as you
can. Hold this position. Reach up with
your opposite hand and grasp your
flexed elbow. Gently assist the stretch
by pulling on the elbow. Hold for 20 to
30 seconds. Repeat the exercise for the
opposite arm.
VIBRACOACH IM - 1117.indd 16
08/11/2017 18:24:05
Warming up and cooling down should take around ten minutes each. It is
sensible to adjust this timing according to your own situation. You would benefit
from a longer warm-up session if you exercise soon after waking up than you
would after a walk to the shops and back for example.
Take your time warming up and cooling down, enjoy the stretches as they will
make you feel better.
Top Tip: As you progress, you can create your own warm up and cool down
exercise routine, you do not need to keep strictly to the above routine so long as you
utilise all the basic muscle types included above.

“I’m new to this, how would I know which settings are right for me?”
FACT: Your body begins to burn fat at around 65% of your maximum recommended
heart rate.
Your heart rate is the key to successful training. You should work out your own
suggested heart rate which is easy. The key figure for heart rate is 220. Subtract your
age from this figure and this will be your maximum heart rate aim for your workout.
E.g.: If your age is 35, then 220 minus 35 (your age) means your maximum heart rate
should not exceed 185 BPM (Beats Per Minute) during exercise.
approximately 65% of this figure to start with and slowly increase as the weeks, and
your fitness, progress. If you exercise daily, you should see your heart rate decrease
over time, and then you can look to increase the intensity of the vibration when you
feel able to do so.
THE GOLDEN RULE is to stop exercising if you feel dizzy, faint or exhausted. LISTEN TO
“How often should I use the Vibrapower Coach?”
The key is to use the Vibrapower Coach every day!
Use the Vibrapower Coach up to three times a day for 10 minutes following the
above guidelines for heart rate. As your fitness level increases, you can increase the
intensity of the vibrations. It is far better to increase the vibration intensity than it is the
length of the workout
“How does Vibrapower Coach work?”
Originally invented for the Russian Space Programme, vibration training was created
to help astronauts stay fit in space where weight training would not work due to the
lack of gravity.
Whereas between 40 and 60% of the muscles fibres are recruited to perform freeweight or resistance machine exercising, performing similar exercises on the vibration
plate, almost 100% of the target muscles fibres are used. This is achieved by creating
an almost constant state of reflex in the muscles, known as a tonic stretch/reflex.
This means that the muscles are flexing and contracting at a very high frequency
producing faster increases in muscular strength.
