Power Plate® Vibration Therapy at NYCPT is a futuristic whole body workout exercise machine that engages 95 percent of your muscle fibers, giving you enhanced and efficient fitness workouts. Some of the wide-ranging effects of this stimulation are weight loss, core conditioning and strengthening, improved balance and coordination, and enhanced bone density.
The technology behind Power Plate® equipment utilizes the secrets of the Soviet cosmonauts back in the 1960s to promote muscle tone by increasing the acceleration or the force of gravity to stimulate your body’s natural response to vibration.
Using PrecisionWave™ Technology – a high-fidelity harmonic vibration system – this revolutionary training technique delivers controlled waves of energy racing throughout your body. These vibrations cause your muscles to respond with rapid fire contractions – between 25 and 50 times per second.
In fact, there are over 200 published scientific studies documenting the benefits that Acceleration Training can help you achieve.
A recent human study of 79 obese adults found:
- Those using Acceleration Training in addition to a low-calorie diet lost twice as much visceral fat after six months compared to those who followed a low-calorie diet with cardio and weight training.
- The decrease in visceral fat remained at the same level in the vibration group after 12 months, while the diet and fitness groups returned to their normal baseline values after 12 months.
What’s truly exceptional about Power Plate’s technology is that it engages 95 percent of your muscle fibers, including the fast and super-fast muscle fibers. A workout on traditional gym equipment uses only about 20 percent of your total muscle fibers – the slow twitch fibers.
A near-total muscle fiber employment translates into a higher-intensity workout, probably unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Acceleration training exercise enhances your performance while it increases the efficiency of your workout.
With the Power Plate machine, you get a complete, full-body workout incorporating stretching, balance, core, strength-building and massage, all in only as little as 15 minutes.
How Power Plate® Vibration Therapy can make a difference for you:
