Now that the new year is upon us, I’m sure many of you are setting New Year’s Resolutions. Exercise and diet always seem to be at the top of everybody’s list and this 10 Minute Whole Body Vibration Trainer from Power Plate is sure to stir up some interest.
The my5 trainer uses low-impact vibrations that cause involuntarily muscle contractions to occur at a rate of 30 to 40 times per second. This in turn stimulates circulation, bone strengthening, tendon stretching and deep-lying pelvic muscles, resulting in faster recovery after hard workouts.
Medical studies conducted over a 20-year period have shown that Whole Body Vibration causes less microtrauma to muscles than conventional weight training.
Made with a steel frame, the my5 can hold 300lbs while oscillating at a frequency of 30-40Hz and includes a poster, remote control, and DVD. The easy to use touch panel provides the user with a bold display that is easy to read and operate.
