BRADENTON, Fla. -- Clients at GOGA Studios in Lakewood Ranch, Fla., are feeling good vibrations for their afternoon workout session.

If you haven't heard of GOGA before, it stands for get on, get active. The exercise method is based on vibrations.

Even though it looks virtually effortless, it's doing much more work on the body than you might think. Ten minutes on the GOGA Pro is equivalent to one hour of resistance training at the gym, but without the sweat.

Using the GOGA machine, your body is continuously being thrown off-balance, causing more than 3,000 muscles to contract at the same time within 10 minutes. You don't even have to wear your gym clothes to do it.

"It's an efficient, quick, easy way for individuals to achieve a workout that's good for them, good for their body," said Jan DeStasio, a GOGA Studios owner.

She explained the numerous benefits GOGA has on the body.

"It helps with toning, firming, flexibility, balance. It increases our serotonin, so it makes us happier. And so many other things that go on and on and on," DeStasio said.

Marianne Goldrainer is a client at GOGA Studios. She said she likes the fact that she can do GOGA on her lunch hour in only a matter of minutes and get the same results than going to the gym for a long period of time.

"So it's 10 minutes instead of having to work out two hours, and you have the same effect. But it just makes you feel so good," Goldrainer said.

DeStasio said that GOGA is a great workout for anyone who's 13 and older.
