It used to be that if you ever wanted to enjoy the benefits of an inversion table you had to purchase your own, and find room for it at your home -somewhere where it would not turn into an expensive clothes hanger.
Logic would have it that "health clubs" should offer ample stretching equipment since lifting weights causes tightening of ligaments and may bring about some reduction in your range of motion. I am not aware of any gym besides ours that has anything more than a stretching cage or bench.
To achieve a balanced body you not only need resistance training with weights plus some cardio, but also stretching and decompression -which may be achieved through yoga, stretch zone and massage therapy -or an inversion table.
Beach Body Health Club is the only gym in Miami Beach that offers the above mentioned options in addition to a decompression machine for your lower back, and a motorized electric inversion table by Teeter.
Inversion is one of the most effective ways to improve back health. It only takes a few minutes, and it can be done before or after training, or on your off-day. Inverted decompression (or gravity assisted traction) can offer a myriad of benefits like temporary back pain relief, improved spinal health and alignment, and decreased muscle tension and stress. Inversion therapy is also used to complement the treatment of depressions.
Sitting at a desk and constantly hunching over to view a computer screen will take its toll and place pressure on your lower back causing discomfort. Those who work on their feet for many hours, and ladies who wear high heels can be seen enjoying our stretch equipment daily here.
Along with good posture, inverting everyday can decompress the spine and rehydrate your disks to help relieve the pain and refresh tired muscles.
