  • Toning tables move the body to tone your muscles. The 8 different tables work on a specific area of your body, stretching and tightening your muscles without stress or strain. This stretching and tightening process results in rapid inch loss. Combined with isometric exercises and weights the table movements provide excellent muscle toning. You will not feel sore, sweaty, or tired because you are fully supported and are not fighting against gravity. There are other benefits to this form of exercise:
    • Increased circulation
    • A wider range of motion
    • Greater mobility of the joints
    • The toning machines can be less stressful than aerobics and other programs
    • Suitable form of exercise for certain disabilities
    • Ideal for people recovering from illness or surgery
    • No fancy footwear needed - just socks!

    Who can use them?
    • Anyone over the age of 18 who is not pregnant
    • People with back and joint problems
    • Older and arthritic people benefit greatly from the increased mobility that regular use of the tables can bring.
