VIBRATION PLATE BENEFITS
To help you reach your goals we provide a free exercise DVD and workout poster with every vibration plate. Our fitness experts are also available to chat about your weight-loss or fitness goals and to design a workout plan.
The vibration plate benefits listed below can be achieved from using a tri-plane vibration plate. This is different to oscillation plate benefits.
Strength and Toning
One of the main vibration plate benefits is strength and toning. The vibrations cause your muscles to quickly contract and relax to keep you balanced. As you move during exercises like lunges or squats the vibrations cause your muscles to work harder and build strength throughout your body. Even standing still with your knees slightly bent can achieve great toning results.
Health and Rehabilitation
Whole body or tri-plane vibration plates can be used for recovery of damaged muscles and tendons, back pain and general pain management, to aid stroke recovery and to improve circulation as well as spinal stability. Please consult your GP, chiropractor or physiotherapist first.
Improve Your Sport
Using gym style tri-plane vibration plates regularly can benefit your participation in a range of other sports and activities by building overall strength and improving flexibility and balance. Tri-plane vibration training has particular benefits for sports such as golf, skiing, racket sports, climbing and many more.
Including a warm-up and cool-down on your vibration plate will also benefit your muscle performance and recovery time afterwards.
Massage and Circulation
Research shows that regular massage using a tri-plane vibration plate increases circulation in arms and legs. Improving circulation can help with healing injured muscles, improving oxygen supply and helping to get rid of lactic acid, from muscles.
A home vibration plate will be a great investment for anyone hoping to tone up or increase strength. We provide interest free credit options to help you spread the cost. Power plate classes cost up to £15 for a 20 minute session and monthly gym fees soon mount up.
Weight Loss and Cellulite
As little as 15 minutes each day will soon make a big difference. Combined with a sensible diet you will reduce body fat including abdominal fat. When it comes to weight loss there are no miracles. However, the benefit of vibration plate training include the ability to easily intensify the effort you put in and reach your goals faster. Research also shows that using a whole body vibration platform ( eg Power Plates or JTX vibration plates) can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Over a 6 month period cellulite reduced by 25.7% on its own or by 32.2% combined with cardio exercise.
A vibration plate provides a low-impact workout suitable for all ages. Your workout can also be adjusted for all fitness levels; From simply standing on the plate with your knees slightly bent to multiple repetitions of sit ups, lunges and press ups or combining with a cardio workout.
Traditionally to increase muscle strength the focus has been on increasing mass (in the form of weight training). This is very effective, but comes at a cost. Weight training is high impact and causes an element of stress to the body. Vibration plates increase strength but are low impact. This can be explained through the formula: Force (or strength) = mass x acceleration. We have discussed adding mass ( using weights) to increase muscular strength or force. Vibration plates focus on the other side of this equation. Strength is increased through applying acceleration with the vibrations rather than mass.
