Power up your workouts with Power Plates! 13 Dec
You may have seen this unusual looking piece of equipment in a couple of our gyms; despite looking odd Power Plates can be really beneficial!
Power Plates are machines that exercise your muscles at high speed through vibrations; they make your muscles contract and relax in the same way they would through intense movement. Through doing this, they can help tone your body and increase your stability.
Despite being high energy pieces of equipment, you can tailor them to you. Raising or lowering the speed of the vibrations can help you get used to the equipment, as well as ensuring you don’t injure yourself, especially while you’re getting used to using them.
Power Plates are great for cooling down too! By doing stretches on them, you not only cool your body down after a workout but improve your balance as you maintain stability on the machine.
You can get a full-body workout when using this equipment by taking your usual workout and trying them on the Power Plates. Test out your stamina and try something new!
