Pilates in the Pines is Now Offering Power Plate WorkoutsPosted by Ian Kullhem on Jan 09, 2014
Pilates in the Pines has ramped up its offerings to include Power Plate workouts. Power Plate is vibration-based exercise technique first studied by a Russian Scientist Vladimir Nazarov. The technique helped to prevent Russian astronauts’ muscles and bones from wasting away in space. The first commercial machine was created in 1999. The vibrating platform accelerates in a vertical direction or an almost perfect sine wave. It can vibrate for 25 to 50 times per second. This accelerated fitness method is performed on an oscillating platform that amps up any typically exercise routine. It offers a high-intensity full-body workout.
Benefits of Using the Power Plate
A Power Plate workout has countless benefits for men and women of all ages. First, a Power Plate workout will help to increase circulation in the body as the rapid muscle contractions increase blood flow and make sure that cells have the fuel they need fast. According to the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, muscle activity is boosted by nearly 300% on the Power Plate compared to traditional floor exercise routines.
Power Plate is also known for helping the body to rid itself of waste faster, which regenerates cells faster. According to scientific research, it also increases bone tissue growth in the body. It is a great workout for those battling against osteoporosis and reduces the risk of falling for older crowds. It also has been known to strengthen muscles, break down fat cells, increase metabolism and improve the production of hormones that are helpful to regenerate skin cells. Improved flexibility from the intense circulation also occurs. Moreover, a Power Plate workout increases coordination as well as reaction times and sense of balance.
Combining Pilates and the Power Plate

Combining a Pilates and Power Plate workout increases results and speeds up the process of improving health benefits. Both exercise regimens focus on sculpting the body—especially the arms, abs and gluts. Power Plate vibrations add intensity to each Pilates’ position and gives maximum toning benefit from the exercise. Pilates offers core-building and muscle-lengthening and when paired with Power Plate also can help increase stamina and balance. Try 10 classes for just $200 and save 50%.
