Arm Intervention/treatment
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.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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 ]
