21 Oct Power Plate vibration trainers available at At Home Fitness in Arizona
Vibration training is the fastest growing segment of the fitness industry since the elliptical machine was introduced more than a decade ago. Everyone from pro athletes to celebrities, to senior citizens and the average couple next door are using vibration training machines these days.
In a nutshell, vibration training involves standing on a machine that often looks like an oversized doctor’s scale, performing static or dynamic movements and allowing the vibrations to engage your muscles in a far more efficient way than traditional strength training. Vibration training machines create instability, which the body senses and reflexively contracts involuntarily muscle tissue to stabilize and react to the stimuli.
The result is all three types of skeletal muscles are instantaneously called into service because of the near-immediate level of fatigue. No longer is there a “progression of muscle fatigue” as in normal
Vibration training can work up to 95 percent of the muscle fibers, compared to as little as 20 percent with standard equipment. So in a lot less time than using traditional exercise methods, people can get a much better workout. Many experts say people can get great benefits from performing WBV training just 30 minutes three times a week.
Vibration training is a concept that dates back to ancient times, but the company that really kick-started the modern revolution is Power Plate.
