Power Plate Unveils the First Cable-Based Upper-Body Vibration Training Device
SAN DIEGO and IRVINE, Calif., March 11 /PRNewswire/ — Power Plate International (PPI), the global leader in Acceleration Training(TM) fitness equipment, today unveiled pro6, the first-ever combination of proven Power PlateÃ‚® exercise with upper body cable-resistance training to give users the ultimate, total-body workout in a half hour. Debuting at the International Health & Racquet Sport Association (IHRSA) show, Power Plate pro6 features an all-new fitness system called proMOTION(TM), which uses high-strength VectranÃ‚® cables to transfer vibration to the upper body at high-speed frequency rates between 20 and 40 times per second, dramatically expanding the benefits of Acceleration Training.
“Power Plate with proMOTION technology is a genuine game-changer for the fitness industry because it is a results-proven system that delivers a true, total-body workout,” said Mark de Gorter, president of Power Plate North America (PPNA). “Power Plate pro6 with proMOTION offers health club operators a single product and a range of dynamic training options using Advanced Vibration Technology to deliver noticeable and measurable results, in as little as 30 minutes.”
pro6 with proMOTION works in conjunction with Advanced Vibration Technology allowing high-strength Vectran cables to transfer nearly 80 percent of the vibration from the base of the machine directly to various muscle groups in the arms, back, core and shoulders. Extending to more than six feet, proMOTION‘s Vectran cables connect to ergonomically designed handles to facilitate a smooth, complete range of motion. They allow for a full range of dynamic exercises, both on and off the vibrating platform and at any speed, in any direction, eliminating the need for multiple resistance machines to work different muscle groups. The cables are made with high-performance multifilament material spun from liquid crystal polymer. Pound-for-pound, Vectran fiber is five times stronger than steel and 10 times stronger than aluminium.
To maximize strength training capabilities and increase the intensity of exercise, the proMOTION system offers both low and high resistance settings, allowing the user to control the exact amount of tension required. The introduction of Power Plate pro6 with proMOTION brings a new element to Acceleration Training exercise, allowing users to push beyond the usual limits to achieve maximum results.
