FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long is each session?
Each VacuShape session is 40 minutes. It consists of a 30-minute brisk walk in the vacuum and 10-min for warm-up/cool-down. Thanks to vacuum your workout time is reduced by half and calories are burned up to 4 times faster during the power walk.
VacuShape creates a more efficient environment to burn fat and reduce cellulite, compared to normal running exercises. 2-3 weekly sessions of 40-minutes workouts in the Vacushape would be equivalent to spending 4-5 hours in the gym.
How often should I exercise in the VacuShape?
In the beginning, we recommend 3 training sessions per week for a period of eight weeks. You may then decide to continue with a further fat breakdown at the same intensity or to stabilize your achieved result with one training session per week.
Do I have to train hard within this timeframe?
No, training under pressure is designed to be undemanding. Your pulse rate should be between 70 and 130 beats per minute.
What results to expect?
Scientific tests have proven that using the VacuShape women lose 3 times more on their thighs vs. normal fat-burning training. In simple terms, regular use of the VacuShape can help achieve an average fat reduction of one pants size per month.
Using the VacuShape, even women with a persistent fat build-up, who are naturally prone to fat accumulation, lose at least 1-centimeter circumference per kilogram of weight-loss per thigh. Without VacuShape these women would lose a maximum of only 0.3 to 0.5 centimeters per thigh per kilogram of weight loss. For women who store excess water, these results can be more than doubled.
Why is the VacuShape so effective in burning fat?
It is important to remember that regular exercise is necessary to burn fat and that fat can only be broken down by regular muscle activity.
While walking in the VacuShape under a low atmospheric pressure, the walker is both: exercising the muscles and increasing the blood supply and circulation to the cellulite and fat prone problematic areas of the lower body.
This increased supply of blood, nutritions and oxygen to the lower body, while exercising the muscles, results in a higher metabolism process, increased cell activity and faster fat burning.
Are the results lasting?
Each session using the VacuShape brings a lasting positive impact. Long-term studies on women with a predisposition to cellulite and fat have not only shown the durability of the results achieved from VacuShape, but, as an added bonus in many cases, formative tissue in the affected areas has regenerated – turning back the skin’s biological clock by up to 10 years.
What causes cellulite and fat build-up?
80% of women have a serious disposition towards cellulite and fat. It accumulates stubbornly in the areas of the hips, thighs and buttocks. This disposition towards cellulite and fat accumulation originates from a woman’s need to accommodate for pregnancy and childbirth. In this way, women have connective tissue that is different to men, in that it is less firm.
Genetics, nutrition, lifestyle and hormones along with increased water storage also lead to an enlargement of the fatty tissue in the cellulite-prone areas of the hips, thighs and buttocks.
The accumulation of fat in the problem areas and the resulting decrease in the blood circulation, nutrition and oxygen supplied to the fat and skin in these areas, makes it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to burn off fat no matter how hard you exercise.
Why is cellulite and fat removal so difficult?
The only true solution for burning off fat reserves is exercise. It is very important to understand the connection between blood circulation, fat loss and exercise.
When exercising a body with cellulite and fat, the body temperature of the problem areas in the lower body actually decreases due to the blood’s flow away from the skin and into the muscle tissue. The upper body, on the other hand, experiences normal circulation and upper body temperature increases as long as exercise increases.
When muscles demand energy from fat, it can only be delivered from areas where enough blood is available as a transport medium. This results in fat being burnt off in undesired areas of the upper body (typically women lose first fat in their chest area) and not in the cellulite and fat-prone areas of the hips, thighs and buttocks. This link between blood circulation, fat loss and exercise are extremely important.
It is sad but true – women with cellulite deposits around the hips, thighs and buttocks won’t be able to burn off the cellulite and fat using normal fat-burning training, no matter how hard they exercise.
