How The Power Plate Works (Quick Intro To The Science)
Power Plate is a very unusual product and we find that people like to understand how it works.
The most basic thing to understand is that there is a powerful engine in every Power Plate that vibrates in 3 dimensions at once. Up to 50 times per second.
This totally unique process helps create waves of energy that flow through you. These waves of energy do all sorts of important things.
One key benefit is that these waves of energy flow though your muscles, into your tendons.
All of us, our tendons get tight. When we move too much, move too little or simply get older.
As these waves of energy flow through your tendons, your tendons get looser and more relaxed. Your tendons sit between larger muscles and bones.
They act like a circuit breaker.
When your tendons get too tight, they serve to shut things down. You get tight and you experience tightness, pain and fatigue. That's the tendons trying to protect you from hurting yourself.
When your tendons get loosened up, you can experience some quick relief.
Another interesting thing that happens is when you step on a Power Plate and start to get your muscles to reflex and contract over 1000 times every 30 seconds, this tiggers your entire hormonal and endocrine system.
Muscles work hand in hand with bones. As muscles get worked out and start to get stronger, this tells your bones to do the same.
Osteoblast and osteoclast production increases. These are cells that take collagen and protein, break them down and turn them into things that make your bones stronger and more flexible. This is critical for all of us as we get older.
Stepping on a Power Plate also helps to increase production of Natural Growth Hormone.
Naturally produced growth hormone (GH) maintains bodily functions such as tissue repair, muscle growth, brain function, bone density development, skin thickness, energy, and metabolism, throughout life.
If you want to dig into the science of all this, we have 50 different research studies available.
Our largest and most powerful units are available at most Lifetime and Equinox gyms. Some clubs offer you a day pass to try their club, where you can use the Power Plate. Others charge for a day pass, which is well worth the visit.
If you turn the Power Plate on to the lowest setting and stand on it for 5 minutes, odds are you'll feel really good after. You get the benefit of a really great workout, and you'll feel this.
For those of you who are already more familiar, and have read our many emails and articles, you can take a look at our most popular home unit, the MOVE. This is available for as low as $116 a month, using our buy-now pay-later financing option.
(We have a special Black Friday promotion running for a very limited time. This is once a year discount.)
We are also a very hands on company--and we do want to hear from you.
When you read about the benefits, they do seem too good to be true. This is why we encourage people to try the plate if possible.
But if you want to try at home, we offer a 30 day guarantee and make it as easy as possible to do this.
