Power Plate – Discover the difference!
The Power Plate is now being offers South of Market (SOMA) in San Francisco at Venus Bodywork. The PowerPlate machine is an excellent compliment to the body services offered at Venus today. It helps to increase circulation and oxygenate blood flow. With regular Acceleration Training exercise on the Power Plate you will soon see results, an increase in strength and flexibility, heightened muscle definition and tone, and reduced cellulite and body fat.
Recent studies have shown that Acceleration Training offers a 57% improvement in weight loss when compared to conventional exercise and diet alone. Studies also show that adding Power Plate training to a high intensity resistance training program can decrease the percentage of body fat, improving body composition as a whole.
How does it work?
Power Plate machines use the principles of Acceleration Training™ to stimulate the body’s natural response to vibration. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, enhancing overall performance in sessions as short as 15 minutes a day, 3 times a week.
Power Plate is the ultimate wellness solution for all ages, lifestyles and physical abilities. The benefits of Power Plate whole body vibration aren’t just limited to workouts. We see these benefits not only in the results of independent research, but in the testimonials of our multitude of users. Take a moment and discover the difference for yourself.
Acceleration Training™ on Power Plate® equipment offers a host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of other measurable outcomes: such as increased muscle strength and flexibility, improved range of motion, decreased cellulite, increased bone mineral density, reduced pain and soreness and faster recovery.
Acceleration Training with Power Plate machines creates instability in the human body, as with each vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions, multiple times per second. Furthermore, these contractions must work in multiple dimensions as the Power Plate machines actually oscillate in all three planes, exactly as the human body is designed to do. The net result is an incredible improvement in force production, or strength and power.
Vibrations stimulate the muscle-pump-effect and cause an increase in blood-flow with an improvement of transport capacity for:
- Oxygen / Carbon dioxide
- Vitality components (micro nutrients)
- Energy components (macro nutrients)
- Derivates and waste (i.e. lactic acid)
