VIBRATION TRAINING WITH POWER PLATE
The principle by which Power Plate® machines work lies in the law of motion, stated by Sir Isaac Newton: that the force of an object is equal to its mass multiplied by acceleration, or F = m x a

This means that one can improve functional force (stability, strength or power) by either applying more mass or more acceleration to the body. Many forms of training and conditioning use mass - as seen in methods with weight machines, free weights, etc.

Power Plate® machines, instead, use the second half of this equation, by applying acceleration to the body, while keeping mass, i.e. your body weight, the same.

fITNESS, TONING, SLIMMING, SPORT
  The Power Plate® can be used to burn excess fat,  improve fitness and muscle tone.

Massage exercises on the Power Plate® break down cellulite and improve mobility of tissue layers.
 
Acceleration Training™ exercise is designed to dramatically enhance sports training as both a supplement to and an alternative form of training. In just minutes, range of motion and stability can increase, providing a perfect warm-up before training or competing. Athletes who use Power Plate® machines over time experience a dramatic increase in explosive strength, motor learning, muscular endurance and overall agility.
