Where does it vibrate?

  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Calves

Common errors

  • Knee buckles away to the inside or outside
  • Knee pushes forwards over the line of the toes
  • Upper part of the body tilts forwards, back or to the side


  • Larger step forwards - with a larger step the exercise is more efficient and intense
  • Compensate the height difference to Galileo to achieve easier movement execution
  • Vary speed of movement
  • Hold the position at the lowest point of the movement until the muscle tires
