Roland Acheampong, vice president of sales for Toronto, Ontario, Canada’s T-Zone Health, said he’s looking forward to launching the company’s newest whole body vibration trainer at its first show.

“It’s our first time at the show, so I really don’t know what to expect,” Acheampong said. “We’re really hoping we could wow people with our machine.”

The newest product form the 10-year-old company is the VT-50 Golf Sport and features a removable plate that can be replaced with three of what the company has dubbed Magic Mats. The three mats are different thicknesses and are designed to add an element of cardio to vibration training.

Another first-timer, Tag Fitness of Aurora, Ill., will showcase its 10-in-One Platform trainer, a portable, multi-station, body-weight training piece designed for groups and individuals. The stations include suspension row bars, weight-assisted dip rack, adjustable plyo box and adjustable cardio step with handrails.
