Total Body Enhancement is also called Beauty Angel therapy, and the machine involved is known as the Beauty Angel RVT 30.
Total Body Enhancement [A Brief Explainer]
The Total Body Enhancement involves one of the most advanced machines of our times. The item looks like a booth, has panels around the walls that emit red light. Then, you’ll see a vibration pad that helps tone your body and keep you in shape.
From research, you’ll pick out that red light is a health booster that exposes your skin to gentle infrared or near-infrared rays. For many people, it is an excellent way to lose weight. You’ll see that as you read the article more.
Now, the TBE combines two technologies, red light therapy and a unique technology known as the Vibra Shape. The latter is a machine-based technique that stimulates activity in and around your muscles. In turn, that pumps up your circulation, and together with red light therapy, fat cells are destroyed.
Apart from weight loss, the Total Body Enhancement (Vibra Shape plus red light) help in:
1. Improving your skin tone
2. Lessening the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite, and other skin-related imperfections.
In short, the TBE helps both men and women become better versions of themselves. That’s why Planet Fitness offers it and encloses the booth to give you a private experience. To make it better, the space has ventilation above to cool you and an MP3 player. That way, you can listen to your favorite jams as your get the red light therapy.
You have to give it to Planet Fitness for making your membership worthwhile, right?
What Does The Beauty Angel Machine Do?
As mentioned, red light therapy helps with weight loss. Also, it improves skin texture and tone by reversing and controlling any aging signs that come up. The light emitted makes your skin firmer and un-wrinkles, if we can say so.
You’ve also noted a vibration pad that stimulates muscle movement and improves blood flow. So, that’s what the machine is all about.

The Special Vibra Shape Program Under Total Body Enhancement
In the previous section, we mention programs. Here, we will explain what each program is and what you expect when you tune in to any of them.
The Vibra Shape is the mother program that houses all of them. Each set runs for 10 minutes, and each has its own specifications. Then, it is always up to the clients to choose the duration and intensity based on their own needs.
Here they are:
First Program: Low Intensity (Feel-Great)
With this setting, you will feel great, and the workout will be easy. Your flexibility will be improved, and your muscles will relax and loosen gently. In addition, the vibration will be at a low frequency, making everything to be slow and steady.
Second Program: Medium Intensity (New You)
If you’re a beginner in Total Body Enhancement, this is the setting you should switch to. It helps people regain fitness by using unique massaging technology to improve muscle appearance. Also, the medium-intense vibration contributes to alternating and controlled movements.
Third Program: High Intensity
If you’re an athlete or a budding sportsperson, this program is yours to take. It is more of cross-training, and the booth will produce intense vibrations. So, prepare yourself to have stronger muscles and faster, more flexible movements.
Fourth Program: Mixed Intensity
As you may have already guessed, this is the most energizing workout. The booth provides you with target-specific exercises for the legs, abs, glutes, and arms. That way, you’ll have toner and tighter muscles.

The TBE/Red Light Therapy Benefits [And The Science Behind it]
Planet Fitness is one of the few gyms that have embraced red light therapy. Each day it’s getting more popular because of its impressive results. But how does simple light make skin firmer?
Well, the red light strikes the skin cells and stimulates the energy-producing items, which you know as mitochondria. When those items (or organelles) are tapped, they release more energy. In turn, the power produces elastin and collagen. Those two products make skin less flappy and improve its overall look.
Apart from reducing joint pain and skin inflammation, red light therapy also functions in these ways:
1. It fast tracks weight loss, especially for people looking for quick and safe results.
2. Then, it rolls back the effect of age on the skin. Finally, more elastin and collagen translate to a youthful look.
3. Also, it improves and accelerates the healing of fitness-related wounds
4. To add, it helps your recover faster after a hard workout.
5. Women using it will get a sense of renewed confidence. That’s because it writes off the cellulite on their body and gives them smooth and tighter skin.
6. The fact that you don’t pay extra at Planet Fitness makes everything better.
Total Body Enhancement is impressively unique. It used blue light therapy to do many things, but more importantly, to improve the appearance of your skin.
So, if you feel like your body has more potential, level up and get the PF Black Card. For $22.99 each money, the doors to the booth will be open for you. Then, you can take on any program type and achieve your fitness and appearance goals.
Remember that red light therapy isn’t harmful, so don’t shiver when you’re in the box. And when you get sweatier, you can always turn up the cooling fan.
