Experimental: Whole body vibration training
Whole body vibration training (timed stand on vibration platform) 3 20-minute sessions per week for 6 months
Behavioral: Whole body vibration training
Each whole body vibration session will consist of a 20 min timed stand on the vibration platform where participants will stand with their knees in a slightly flexed position (120°) while the plate oscillates. The vibration frequency will be set at ranges between 20-40Hz and the amplitude set at 2mm displacement.
Placebo Comparator: Control group
No significant changes to diet, exercise and lifestyle.
Behavioral: Control group
Participants in this group will be asked to not make any significant changes to their lifestyle behaviors, such as diet and exercise, for the duration of the study.
- Change in body composition (total body mass, fat-free mass, fat mass, regional fat mass, android/gynoid ratio and % body fat) across baseline, 3 and 6 months [ Time Frame: baseline, 3, 6 months ]
