Defending Champions Return to Wimbledon
IRVINE, Calif., June 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Returning to Wimbledon to defend their titles, both Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams are utilizing Power PlateÃ‚® equipment, which is scientifically proven to reduce muscle pain, soreness and expedite the recovery of damaged muscles and tendons.
“This is a part of the way I work out regularly,” top-seeded Nadal has said of Power Plate exercise. “At the end, work is what makes you feel satisfaction.”
After nearly a year off the court due to injury and illness, Serena seeded eighth, began her comeback last week with a 3-set victory at the Aegon International tournament. Relying on Power Plate as an important part of her training, Williams was able to rehab her injury and return to Wimbledon. Says Williams, “Off court training is as important to me as on court. With Power Plate, I’m able to accelerate my off court training and maximize the benefits.”

Both are world-class athletes and we are proud to have them on the Power Plate team,” commented Mark de Gorter, President of Power Plate North America. “With benefits ranging from increased muscular strength and flexibility to greater balance and stability, we believe their training on Power Plate will lead them both to another win.”
