See what awesome changes you can make in your body from just 25 minutes of focus! Below we have highlighted a few of the incredible benefits of the Power Plate Classes.
Benefits of the Power Plate classes
It’s acceleration training
The high frequency and amplitude of the vibration engage all of the smaller (intrinsic) muscle fibers that are normally not used during a workout routine. This is why a 25 minute class feels equivalent to an hour of gym-time.
Fun Fact: 25 minutes of continuous work on the PowerPlate® will cause 60,000 individual muscle contractions.
It improves balance and flexibility
The vibration challenges the equilibrium of the human body. It also triggers the delivery of oxygen and blood to muscles, ligaments, and other structures that are essential to optimal flexibility.
It makes you happier and more alert
The PowerPlate® encourages Seratonin release because the vibration increases the amount of uptake by Seratonin’s host cell into the blood.
It also induces a ‘good feeling’ because it assists with lymphatic drainage. The lymphatic system of the body does not have a drainage system like the circulatory system, like the heart to pump blood. The vibration speeds up the drainage of toxic lymph that causes you to fatigue easily.
It decreases the appearance of cellulite
There have been many clinical studies done on this topic. To form cellulite, the layers of tissue that are connected to the skin can become dimpled and puckered when the underlying fatty cells enlarge. The vibration of the plate accelerates collagen remodeling which significantly decreases the appearance of this dimpling on the surface of the skin.
It makes you look younger?
As we age, the production of growth hormone slows, allowing our bodies to visibly age. Most anti-aging procedures are aimed at maintaining and increasing the amount of growth hormone, a lot of which, are highly toxic and cost thousands of dollars. PowerPlate® usage aids in growth hormone production because it ‘destabilizes’ the body on a cellular level inducing reflexes to engage that are normally dormant. These reflexes then affect our hormonal balance. It is a natural way to maintain that youthful glow!
It increases bone density
The vibration activates tiny osteoblasts (bone-building cells) to build bone on a cellular level. So, anyone prone to low bone density such as people with a genetic predisposition to osteopenia, post-menopausal women, people with autoimmune disorders, or people with nutritional deficiencies may have low bone density.
What to expect from Symmetry Health Center’s Power Plate Classes?
Power Plate class combined with SMR techniques
Amazing, our classes have a combination of Power Plate and SMR techniques. This helps you achieve your health improvement goals in a very short time.
Self-myofascial Release (SMR) is a powerful stretching technique that is gaining popularity in the fitness world because of it’s effectiveness in quickly loosening tight muscles and helping correct altered movement compensations. Through the use of trigger point rollers, gentle pressure is applied to muscle adhesions (also known as knots), to alter the elastic muscle fibers from a tight bundled state, into a more relaxed state in alignment with the fascia. This process is called autogenic inhibition, and typically takes 30 seconds to initiate once a roller is placed and held on a sore or tender spot.
We will combine SMR techniques with the Power Plate® to quickly initiate autogenic inhibition and to help you improve performance in other Power Plate® classes as well as in other sports and daily activities. Anyone with an interest in improving physical performance can benefit from SMR and static stretching on the Power Plate®. Be sure to check our online schedule regularly for openings, as this class will be sure to fill up quickly.
Power Plate technology combined with BioDensity machine
At our Oakland and Alameda chiropractic and health facility, we combine Power Plate technology and The BioDensity machine to gain the best results. The BioDensity machine permits for greater bone and muscle growth than conventional exercise because it places your body in the most optimal biomechanical position, allowing for greatest amount of load on your skeletal and muscular systems. Just one, 5-minute BioDensity session per week has been shown to result in significant increases in bone density, muscular strength and metabolic rate. At the end of each session, you will be provided with a Performance report, enabling you to track your progress overtime and maintain motivation.
