There are 8 Saturdays left to Christmas, and if you want to be fighting fit for the festive fun, step onto a Power Plate. Power Plates work by transferring vibrations throughout the whole body, which cause the muscles to contract and lengthen multiple times per second.
This intensifies the exercise, making it an ideal way to shape up fast. Power Plates are also known as the ultimate fat burning machine; studies show that adding Power Plates training to a high intensity resistance training can reduce the percentage of body fat, improving body composition as a whole.
3 reasons you should step up to the Power Plates:
Burns extra fat
Whole-body vibration training has been shown to decrease visceral fat, which is stored deep in the abdomen around organs. Individuals who used a Power Plate during a fat-loss program lost 10 percent of their body weight and maintained their weight loss after 12 months. Also, the Power Plate has been shown to reduce cellulite.
Builds lean muscle mass
Performing Squats on a Power Plate increases strength like squatting on stable ground. But using the Power Plate produces an increase in lean muscle mass, possibly because of the muscles' increased time under tension when they work against the vibration.
Increases joint stability
In patients recovering from ACL surgery, the Power Plate was 22 times more effective at improving knee stability compared to conventional rehab exercises. This makes it a powerful rehab tool, helping to speed up the recovery process.
Good Vibes were the first independent Power Plate studio in the UK and we are still going strong, because it works!
