All you need is loose comfortable clothing and yourself – no shoes, no shower, no hassle. Half the time, half the effort, TWICE the results.
How do power plates work?
Power Plate® machines vibrate. They use the principle of acceleration training exercise to stimulate the body’s natural response to vibration. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions multiple times per second. This enables the participant to gain profound results in a short space of time. By holding the body in different exercise positions for up to 60 seconds per set, multiple muscle groups are activated simultaneously, resulting in accelerated muscle strength, tone, endurance and flexibility.
The advanced vibration technology concept behind power plate equipment was developed for the Soviet aerospace program in the 1960’s, to help astronauts combat the weakening effects of zero gravity conditions in space. Power plate has improved this technology to benefit both high performance sports athletes and everyday fitness enthusiasts.
