According to the literature, PowerFit is a vibration platform that uses technology to stimulate the body’s natural response of increasing bone density. Vibration plates are used around the world for anti-aging benefits and increased fitness, but can also be expensive. The Powerfit team says their product does what traditional vibration plates do at a fraction of the cost (estimated price is $399).
The movement of the plate upon which you stand causes subtle vibration throughout your body. This stimulation activates sensory receptors which cause muscles to contract and relax at a more rapid rate than normal. These movements produce mechanical energy which results in electrical impulses that stimulate bone, cartilage, and ligament growth. Other benefits include increased lymphatic flow, blood circulation, and metabolism.
No matter what your sport or age, the PowerFit team believes that regular use of their vibration plate can help you reach all of your fitness goals.
Your body senses the slightest change in its environment. For example, when you touch a hot stove, your hand reflexively moves away before your brain tells it to do so. The Powerfit vibration plate stimulates the body’s reflexive responses to external stimuli in the same way, though on a far more subtle level. The results will likely be improved balance, flexibility, and coordination.
What is really unique about the technology behind PowerFit is that it can adjust its frequencies to suit different levels of fitness. If you’re a professional athlete, the plate automatically adjusts to suit your needs. If you’re just beginning an exercise program, it will choose a frequency more suitable for your level of ability and fitness.
The PowerFit vibration platform has been developed with zero gravity as its foundation (below). This allows the free flow of energy throughout the body without any obstructions.
The PowerFit vibration platform is intended to be used on a daily basis for 15-30 minutes. It can be used while you are watching TV, reading, or playing computer games. If you have the time, though, it’s best to use it for an hour so that your body can get the maximum benefit from its use.
