What is Power Plate® and how does it work?
Power Plate® is an innovative fitness machine that gives your muscles a high-speed workout by using vibrations to stimulate them into contracting and relaxing. Your muscles during normal activities contract approximately once or twice a second, however by standing on the Power Plate® the vibrations cause an automatic reflex muscle contraction of between 25-50 times a second.
The beauty of the Power Plate® is that it is far less time consuming than other exercise methods and it is claimed that a 10 minutes on the Power Plate® will have the same impact as 60 minutes of you doing a conventional workout! This is possible by the fact that so many muscle groups are activated simultaneously.
Training on Power Plate® equipment has many benefits including:
- Improving your blood circulation
- Increasing your muscle strength / flexibility
- Improving your range of movements
- Reduces after workout soreness
- Decreases cellulite.
Power Plate® differs from other whole body vibration machines as it includes a unique two motor system that provides you with a 3-D workout. Your muscles contractions work in multiple dimensions as the Power Plate® oscillates in all three planes.
Power Plate® technology can be found throughout our Fitness & Wellbeing estate, so give it and try and see how it could benefit you today.
