CELLULITE ELIMINATOR

The ‘Cellulite Eliminator’ program gives a high intensity massage to the legs resulting in a breakdown of fats and cellulite. SlimmersEdge members love this program! It’s their after a workout treat which feels so good after sitting at the office chair day in day out. The circulation of blood throughout the legs and buttock is so invigorating and the benefits go far beyond cellulite, it mobilizes fatty tissue creating smoother healthier looking skin and circulates blood through the legs which helps keep those legs firm and youthful.

Even the men do ‘Cellulite Eliminator’ because the circulatory affects are so good after running, sport or any general activities that cause lactic acid build up or muscle tightness. It even helps with arthritis sufferers. 

VIBRATION TRAINING

A slimmer body shape is what most of our members want, and we’re proud to say that the results we achieve with vibration training as our core activity, does exactly that.

– How does it work? –

Vibration training works to contract and relax muscle groups more quickly than standard exercise.  The body is positioned into a variety of poses to target specific areas of the body to create activity of the muscle groups. When the vibrating platform moves, the fibres and fibrils trigger muscle movement via the muscle spindle 30 to 50 times per second. This stimulates blood flow, increasing the metabolic rate and encouraging fat burning.

The technology can also be used to break down fatty tissue such as cellulite. In addition to this, it stimulates the production of the regenerative and repair hormones and improves blood circulation to all vital body organs, lymph nodes, digestive and nervous systems. Vibration training increases bone density and joint security and can reduce pain and disability associated with osteoarthritis.

This core strengthening has been practiced by most cultures for millennia with many martial art forms, yoga, sports and other disciplines. In the modern world, vibration training offers a solution to keep the body youthful, agile, mobilised, strong and slim, in record time.

FOOD SCIENCE

The digestive system holds the key to accelerated weight loss and tummy tone. If you think of your digestive system as a vegetable garden, then you can understand the importance of caring for the garden to yield a healthy crop. Having the right foods that create healthy digestive processes is important when you are asking your body to also break down fats and reduce weight.

To introduce enzymes into the gut we recommend umeboshi and brown rice vinegars splashed over your vegetables. These have been fermented and not pasteurised so they improve the digestibility of foods and cleanse your intestines, creating a more efficient system. Pickles also add quality enzymes that are essential for healthy digestion. Fermented foods have a long history in many cultures. Today, two of the most well-known instances of traditional fermented cabbage side dishes are sauerkraut and Korean kimchi.

Leaf vegetables, also called potherbs, greens, vegetable greens, leafy greens or salad greens, are plant leaves eaten as a vegetable. Although they come from a very wide variety of plants, most share a great deal with other leaf vegetables in nutrition and cooking methods. Leaf vegetables are typically low in calories, low in fat, high in protein per calorie, high in dietary fibre, high in iron and calcium, and very high in phytochemicals such as vitamin C, carotenoids, lutein, folate, magnesium as well as vitamin K. Leaf vegetables help digest other foods like meat proteins and carbohydrates.

Carbohydrate consumed in food yields 3.87 calories of energy per gram for simple sugars and 3.57 to 4.12 calories per gram for complex carbohydrate in most other foods. High levels of carbohydrate are often associated with highly processed foods or refined foods made from plants, including sweets, cookies and candy, table sugar, honey, soft drinks, breads and crackers, jams and fruit products, pastas and breakfast cereals. Lower amounts of carbohydrate are usually associated with unrefined foods, including beans, tubers, rice, and unrefined fruit. Foods from animal carcasses have the lowest carbohydrate, but milk does contain lactose. We recommend good quality unrefined brown rice, quinoa, millet and wholemeal breads and pastas.

The best-known role of proteins in the cell is as enzymes, which catalyse chemical reactions. Enzymes carry out most of the reactions involved in metabolism, as well as manipulating DNA in processes such as DNA replication, DNA repair, and transcription. About 4,000 reactions are known to be catalysed by enzymes. So have legumes such as chickpeas, beans, lentils or lean meats for the best quality proteins to ensure the best enzyme action.
