Power Plate® equipment is the premium vibration device powering a new dimension in wellness solutions for all ages, lifestyles, and physical abilities. It uses 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.
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. Our three–dimensional vibration technology continues to lead the industry, and its benefits are grounded in extensive academic and independent scientific medical research.
Although Whole–Body Vibration (WBV) seems like the most up–to–the–date revolutionary technology in fitness training, the first implementation of vibrations to improve human function and performance goes all the way back to ancient Greece where the physicians used saws covered in cotton to transfer vibrations to those parts of the body that required stimulation. In the 1960s, Acceleration Training™ was initially used and researched in the former Soviet Union to enable cosmonauts to withstand the negative effects of microgravity while in space. In 1989, Guus Van der Meer, a Dutch Olympic coach, developed the Power Plate® device that relied on his own clinical data, imagination, and invention. As an exercise program, Acceleration Training™ provides shorter training time in the gym, improves balance and coordination, enhances neuromuscular functions, and increases hormone levels (testosterone, human growth) and overall new development to your work out.
As the head trainer of Mundo Power Plate, I’ve used the Acceleration Training™ method for the past twelve months in combination with Power Plate®, the results being an increased level of strength and endurance conditioning, bringing me to an all–time peak while working out at my local gym and combining my workouts with Power Plate®. I am convinced that combining Power Plate® with Accelerated Training™ is a MUST. Following the Acceleration Training™ program has really strengthened my body from within, which carries over to my workouts with weights.
As an ex–professional athlete, I’ve come across numerous training methods. Power Plate® has by far had the greatest impact on my workout results. As personal training brings a wide range of routines and exercises that accelerate a workout, the Power Plate® and Accelerated Training™ programs are personalized to the client’s level of training and condition. The greatest benefit of working out on Power Plate® is that no matter what your current fitness routine includes, a program can be designed for YOU, including a recovery program for those in high levels of competition impact sports. Your personal program will allow your muscles to get that vital element of recovery for your next match or event.
Here at Mundo Power Plate, we are 100% committed to helping our clients achieve maximum performance and increased health and well–being by providing an aggressive yet safe workout plan that encourages through education.
