Outside San Francisco, Symmetry Health Center offers group exercise in it’s cutting edge new studio composed of Power Plate® Technology, and a certified personal trainer. Power Plate® machines use the principles of Acceleration Training™ to stimulate the body’s natural response to vibration.
These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, enhancing overall performance in sessions as short as 15-30 minutes a day, 3 times a week.
Acceleration Training with Power Plate® machines creates instability in the human body, as with each vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions, multiple times per second. Furthermore, these contractions must work in multiple dimensions as the Power Plate® machines actually oscillate in all three planes, exactly as the human body is designed to do. The net result is an incredible improvement in force production, or strength and power.
Benefits of Acceleration Training
Acceleration Training offers a host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of other measurable outcomes:
- Strength: Improves muscle tone, builds explosive power and endurance
- Flexibility: Increases range of motion, coordination, balance and stability
- Circulation: Improves & increases blood flow to strengthen the cardiovascular system
- Weight Loss: Reduces body fat and enhances metabolism
- Cellulite Reduction: Diminishes the appearance of cellulite
- Build Bone Density: Increases bone density & prevents bone loss related to aging
- Alleviate Pain: Promotes faster recovery, decreases pain and improves joint function
The Power Plate® can be used for numerous applications from rehabilitation of injuries and post surgical rehabilitation to improving strength, endurance and weight loss. A 23% reduction in cellulite, 16% improvement in vertical jump and a 350% increase in natural human growth hormone-(hGh) are only a few of the incredible changes the Power Plate® can initiate. Motion signals in the body block pain signals, and pain decreases with movement. Exercise and the Power Plate® help strengthen the body and enable the healing process. Great posture begins with a strong core and from a strong core comes an overall strengthened and balanced musculoskeletal system. Nothing will improve these muscles like the Power Plate®.
Recent studies have shown that Acceleration Training offers a 57% improvement in weight loss when compared to conventional exercise and diet alone.
