Good vibrations in Franklin


A Franklin health club is seeing a lot of interest in its vibrating platform. Customers have come from as far away as Cape Cod to Core Fitness to use the device the club bought in October.

The Globe reports today that a new vibration-based fitness fad is taking Massachusetts by storm -- although it's a bit of a stretch to call it exercise.

The idea is that simply standing on a vibrating platform like the one at Core Fitness has benefits. Sounds crazy, yes, but among the early adopters are two little-known organizations called the Celtics and the Red Sox.
