3. VP1000 Vibration Trainer
a. Vibration training is relatively new to the fitness industry, but the technology was developed in the 1960s for Russian cosmonauts to prevent muscle atrophy and loss of bone density due to the lack of gravity in space. This proven technology is now used by elite athletes, those rehabilitating from an injury, senior fitness enthusiasts, and those interested in expanding their exercise regiment to take advantage of the health benefits achieved by using whole body vibration therapy.
b. Health Benefits
Whole body vibration therapy is an excellent complement to traditional cardiovascular exercise and strength training. It is beneficial for seniors. Benefits of using a vibration trainer include
· Improved Muscle Strength
· Improved Flexibility and Joint Range of Motion

4. Lifesmart Premium Pack 130 Jet Spa with Remote, Spa Caddy
a. Everyone loves hot tubs, but not everyone has a good place to install one. Enter the LifeSmart Premium Pack 130, the company’s most powerful self-inflating spa. The Premium Pack 130 installs almost anywhere, indoors or out, including in your backyard, on your patio, or in your sunroom. You can even bring it to a friend’s house or take it on a road trip. The hot tub is also easy to inflate: just remove it from the box, plug it into a 110-volt outlet, and watch it self-inflate in minutes. Once the spa is standing, simply fill it with a garden hose and turn on the 900-watt, thermostatically controlled heater, which maxes out at a relaxing 104 degrees. There’s no better way to escape from your day-to-day grind. Plus, the Premium Pack 130 includes a massaging bubble system with 130 air jets, so you can soothe your aching muscles in luxurious warmth. Perhaps the handiest feature, however, is the tub’s LifeSmart spa caddy, a combination hand rail, drink holder, and towel rack that attaches to the side. The spa caddy keeps the most important spa accessories close at hand, so you don’t have to run across the deck on a cold evening just to grab your towel. Other features include a special remote that lets you control the settings while in the water, a durable vinyl construction, room for up to four people, a filtration pump and zippered thermal cover, and a one-year supply of spa treatment supplies. The spa–which holds approximately 211 gallons–measures 73 inches in diameter and 28 inches tall when fully inflated and weighs 50 pounds. The spa carries a one-year warranty on the controls and heater and a 90-day warranty on parts.
