Get ready to experience a high efficiency work out like no other!14 Nov
Powerplates are coming to Northgate Arena this December as part of the new gym suite!
Transmitting waves of energy throughout the body, these high tech pieces of kit make your muscle fibres contract between 20 and 50 times a second! These contractions enhance the co-ordination and efficiency of both muscles and nerves in the body.
Here are just a few of the benefits of working out with a Powerplate:
- The vibrations immediately improve your blood circulation
- There’s less impact than with traditional exercise, so there’s reduced pain and soreness
- The vibrations can act as a whole body massage
- Using a Powerplate increases your muscle strength and flexibility, and enhances metabolism
A Powerplate workout is very efficient, so you can have an effective full body workout in just ten minutes. This makes it perfect as a supplement to your regular workout, or as a variant to help you mix things up a bit.
These machines are also particularly good for rehabilitation due to their low impact nature, so if you’re recovering from an injury they make an excellent alternative workout.
We’re really excited to get these in the new gym, and with something for everyone, we hope you’re excited too! The new Northgate Arena gym suite is due to be open on Monday 22 December! Keep up to date with its progress on our website, or on Facebook or Twitter.
