Power Plate my7 Vibration Trainer
The Power Plate my7 is the first full-body home machine to feature proMOTION Dynamic Vibration Technology, high strength Vectran cables that transfer vibrations directly to the targeted muscle. So now you can do traditional dynamic-movement exercises like bicep curls, shoulder presses and rows with the added benefit of Advanced Vibration Technology™.
With over 250 customized programs the Power Plate my7 is the remarkable exercise machine that takes your workout in a whole new direction. That’s because it’s with you every step from start to finish. In addition to our unique Advanced Vibration Technology™, the Power Plate MY7 features an integrated touch screen computer complete with over 1,000 exercise videos and coaching tips to guide you.
The Power Plate MY7 is an intelligent virtual trainer that can flex with you, helping you to personalize your workout. Power Plate has divided the programs into three lifestyle goals – FEEL better, LOOK better and PLAY better – all designed to help you achieve results. Inside the brain of the Power Plate MY7 are over 250 pre-programmed workouts. So, whether you’re preparing for a marathon, warming up for the ski season, looking to lose weight or concerned about bone health, the Power Plate MY7 has a unique program to help you reach your goal.
What is Power Plate?
Power Plate equipment is the premium vibration device powering a new dimension in wellness solutions for all ages, lifestyles and physical abilities. It uses 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 minutes a day, 3 times a week.
Acceleration Training on Power Plate equipment offers a host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of other measurable outcomes: such as increased muscle strength and flexibility, improved range of motion, decreased cellulite, increased bone mineral density, reduced pain and soreness and faster recovery. Our three-dimensional vibration technology continues to lead the industry, and its benefits are grounded in extensive academic and independent scientific medical research.
How does it work?
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. The principle by which Power Plate machines work lies in the law of motion, stated by Sir Isaac Newton: that the force of an object is equal to its mass multiplied by acceleration, or f = m x a. What this means is that one can improve functional force (stability, strength or power) by either applying more mass or more acceleration to the body. Many forms of training and conditioning use mass - as seen in methods with weight machines, free weights, etc. Power Plate machines, instead, use the second half of this equation, by applying acceleration to the body, while keeping mass, i.e. your body weight, the same.
This is a real breakthrough in training and conditioning as we can now optimally “load” the human frame while minimizing high impact, high load, and high stress factors. Gravity is the force that adds load to the human body every second of every day for every movement we perform. Through Acceleration Training™ exercise, Power Plate machines make the body feel as though it “weighs” more every time acceleration forces increase.
The result is that you work against a far greater influence or “load” of gravity in every movement you perform. This is the essence of all strength and conditioning programs and Power Plate machines simply use a different part of the same equation to achieve this! In fact, the amazing outcomes seen with Acceleration Training™ exercise respect the same biological and physiological laws of the body as witnessed in other forms of training. The difference is merely the nature of the stimulus applied (i.e. acceleration), and not the human response.
How long is the typical Power Plate workout?
We like to encourage a 30 minute standalone workout only. If you incorporate other modes of training during the workout, you would be able to lengthen the workout time.
How is the Power Plate machine different from one that wobbles side to side?
Our machine is vertical displacement, which is the best way to combat the natural force of gravity especially for an increase in strength and power. We have five training elements on our machine which would be limited on one that wobbles.
