WASHINGTON, D.C. – A new fitness trend dubbed the “no-work workout” is growing fast in popularity.

Goga - which stands for “Get On, Get Active” involves a whole-body vibration machine and claims to produce the same results as one hour working out in the gym.

“As the platform moves, it throws your body off balance just a little bit so your muscles contract. You get about 4,000 to 6,000 muscle contractions in a 10-minute session,” said Lorie Scheer with Goga Studios.

Some people who have tried Goga said it also boosts their energy level and helps them sleep better at night.

Goga studios are opening up across the nation but there aren’t any on the West Coast yet.
