Power Plate® technology provides one of the most efficient and dynamic total-body workouts in less than 30 minutes. The technology utilizes scientifically-proven Advanced Vibration Technology™ that naturally stimulates muscle reactions 25-50 times per second, which works up to 95 percent of muscle fibers while you exercise.
The result is a high-intensity exercise that increases strength, improves muscle tone and balance and helps reduce body fat. A recent study found that Acceleration Training™ exercise helped participants lose more weight than traditional exercise.
During exercise on Power Plate machines, muscles are naturally stimulated 25 and 50 times per second as the platform vibrates, which effectively recruits up to 98 percent of muscle fibres – compared to only 20 percent when performing exercise with traditional strength training equipment. Power Plate equipment uses the principle of Newton’s second law, force = mass x acceleration. Which traditional exercise uses weights increases the mass part of the equation, Power Plate training increases the second part of the equation: acceleration. This significantly reduces impact on joints, making it particularly accessible for the aging population, injured.
