“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”- Deepak Chopra
Their treatment is unlike any other slimming treatments. It’s not a fat melting machine or anything like that, rather, it’s a machine to work your muscles which would in turn tone up your overall body.
The TBF toning treatment made use of a unique square waveform technology that targets specific muscle groups that tones and shapes the body significantly faster. So I had my body strapped with metal plates connected to wires that linked up to the machine and once the machine fires, I felt my muscles twitching abruptly. The sensation was bearable though my body would get a shock whenever the muscle contracts suddenly. The intermittent contraction and relaxation of the muscles is similar to intensive crunches or sit ups where you felt your abs ‘crying out loud’. Oh, it’s aching but I kinda like it because I know that abs-making has already taken place!

This treatment did made a lot of sense to me. Rather than burning fats, I would much rather build and tone my muscles to help my body burn fat naturally. I would think this treatment would be perfect for men wants more muscle definition.
I also got to try their i-LIPO treatment which is a laser treatment that reduces fat. I had these white box-like treatment pads strapped to my thighs and hips which emits low-level lasers that would trigger chemical reactions to accelerate the body’s natural fat burning process. The beauty about such machines is that it targets at spot reduction which is almost impossible with exercise. Even personal trainers will tell you that exercising always involves a group of muscles working in sync. For instance, you may have a close-to-perfect body but you may still have that rim of tummy fats that bulge out of your pants slightly. These stubborn fats can be difficult to get rid of.
