A Power Plate is a machine that gives your body's muscles high-speed exercise. With a normal exercise regime, your muscles contract twice each second. With a Power Plate, you can increase these contractions to 50 each second. The Power Plate achieves this by using vibrations that prompt your muscles to contract automatically.

Anyone can use a Power Plate. You can create exercises around your needs and the time you have available.

There's no need to buy specific clothing when you use a Power Plate. You don't have to wear trainers, either, because a Power Plate workout doesn't place any pressure on the body's joints.


The high cost of a Power Plate is not an advantage. But most good gyms and fitness centres have at least one Power Plate. If you're thinking of joining a gym, first ask if there's a Power Plate available.
