The Source Gym is proud to introduce a new edition to the fitness suite, The Power Plate®.
What is it and how does it work?
The Power Plate® machine delivers the equivalent of an hour's strenuous weight bearing exercise in just 15 minutes. Different exercise positions are held on the Power-Plate® machine's vibrating platform and vibrations are transferred to muscles in the body, causing them to contract up to 50 times a second in an involuntary reflex action. A pose is held for up to 60 seconds at a time stimulating multiple muscle groups simultaneously to stretch tone and strengthen. Just three short sessions a week are enough to make a difference and to see all the benefits of regular exercise.
Training on a Power Plate® machine:
- Encourages weight loss
- Helps reduce the appearance of cellulite
- Improves muscle tone, circulation and flexibility
Training on a Power Plate® machine is low impact and gentle, suitable for all, regardless of fitness levels and has many benefits enabling those who are otherwise unable to exercise to keep fit and healthy without putting any strain on joints or any other parts of the body. Power Plate® machines are also playing a significant role in GP referral schemes across the UK.
Who and what it is good for?
Extensive research studies have shown that regular training on a Power Plate ® machine helps to speed up weight loss, recovery from injuries and improve the effects of debilitating conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and circulatory problems.
Can I use it?
Your instructor will assess your fitness levels and determine whether there is any medical reason that would prevent you using the Power Plate® machine.
