HOW DOES POWER PLATE WORK?
Engineered precisely to apply the body’s natural reflexive response to vibration, Power Plate technology uses a vibrating platform, which moves 25 to 50 times per second, resulting in corresponding muscle activation. The vibrations are harmonic, which are safe, consistent and controlled levels of vibration, moving in three directions (up and down, forwards and backwards and side to side).
WILL USING POWER PLATE HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT?
Significant weight loss is often reported by those who use Power Plate regularly in conjunction with a healthy, calorie-controlled diet. One of the reasons for this is increased lymphatic flow and associated removal of biological waste, and retained fluid. Research shows, when used as part of an active lifestyle, Power Plate may have a significant impact upon the reduction of body fat. This may occur due to increases in metabolism both during and following exercise.
IS VIBRATING TRAINING SAFE?
There are literally hundreds of thousands of Power Plate users across the world, who have been exercising on the device for many of years. Such widespread use with no reported negative effects over an extended period demonstrates the safety of training on Power Plate. As with any form of exercise, there are certain pre-existing medical conditions, which may make Power Plate an unsuitable option.
