Product Description

Proven by decades of clinical research, the my5 vibration trainer will help you achieve new levels of health, fitness and performance in just 15 minutes per day, three times a week. They my5's Advanced Vibration Technology uses your body's natural response to vibrations to help improve muscle tone and stimulate circulation and performance. Vibrations activate natural muscle reflexes up to 35 times per second, giving you a host of benefits.

The Powerplate my3 Vibration Training Machine combines the award-winning whole body vibration technology from Powerplate with a stylish compact design and an equally compact price tag. The Power Plate my3 is the trimmest, most economical way to bring Acceleration Training exercise into any sized home or apartment, enabling you to make room for three 15-minute full-body workouts a week. The re-designed my3 model for 2008 combines form and function, displaying a distinctly stylish edge. The newly designed face plate will allow you to fully interact with the machine, making it more user-friendly than ever before.

It uses whole-body vibration to increase muscle strength, blood circulation, bone density, and uses whole-body vibration. Originating in Europe, vibration exercise training is backed by dozens of medical research reports and is being integrated into daily routines by top universities, NFL teams, medical centers, gyms and celebrities alike.

How It Works
The my3 employs a technology called Acceleration Training to stimulate the body's natural response to vibration. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, thereby enhancing your overall fitness in sessions as short as 15 minutes a day, three times per week. Acceleration Training offers a host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in blood circulation to a variety of other measurable outcomes, including increased muscle strength and flexibility, improved range of motion, decreased cellulite, increased bone mineral density, reduced pain and soreness, and faster recovery from injury.

Acceleration Training works by creating instability in the human body, as with each vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions. Furthermore, these contractions must work in multiple dimensions, as the Power Plate machines actually oscillate in all three directions, exactly as the human body is designed to do. This means that one can improve functional force (stability, strength, or power) by either applying more mass or more acceleration to the body.

Many forms of training and conditioning use mass--as seen in methods with weight machines and free weights. Power Plate machines, by contrast, use the second half of the law of motion equation: they apply acceleration to the body while keeping mass (i.e., your body weight) the same. The result is that you work against a far greater influence, or "load," of gravity in every movement you perform. Power Plate machines are a great alternative for people who enjoy an active lifestyle but don't have the time to perform lengthy workouts three or more times a week.

Sports Performance Benefits
For serious athletes, workouts on the Power Plate machines enhance the results of conventional training and explosive strength training, as well as serve athletes and trainers alike to speed recovery and regeneration times. In just minutes, range of motion and stability can increase, providing a perfect warm-up before training or competing. In addition to being an ideal pre-event tool, Power Plate machines are an excellent means of continuously maximizing performance. As the vibrations stimulate fast-twitch muscle fibers, athletes who use Power Plate machines over time experience a dramatic increase in explosive strength, motor learning, muscular endurance and overall agility.

All the state of the art rehabs have a power plate!

It sounded like a gimmick...a vibrating platform that can give you a better workout than lifting weights?

Several years my daughter was trampled by her horse ad she wound up with severe muscle damage. She has to stretch everyday to keep her muscles flexible. Since getting the power plate, miraculous healing has taken place. (By the way, she has had every type of therapy from rolfing to active release - you name it. Active release was awesome with the right therapist, some therapist not as good as others. You do have to make sure the therapist is good.) But the power plate allows for deep tissue stretching and healing. Her flexibility has improved my leaps and bounds. She swears by the power plate. When she reads a bad review or a review saying it's all hype, for instance when it say it's like those shaker machines in the 60's. She gets so upset. She is living proof of the power plate works! It works, it works!!! We highly believe in the power plate and it has made all the difference in the world in her stretching routine. It breaks up scar tissue. It has helped with scholiosis too. It also rebuilds muscles and she can't live without it! She used to be in advance ballet and says if only I had this machine then, I would have been unstoppable. She loves the machine. She actually has the power plate my5. We recently purchased the my3 for a nephew who was just diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and the power plate is amazing on lengthening muscles. All the state of the art rehabs have a power plate! Now that should tell you something. It is even used for helping with cancer - drains the lymphatic system. We are STRONG believers in the power plate! It works miracles!

I have been using My3 Power Plate for 3 weeks now and I am delighted with this incredible vibration machine. The manufacturer recommends using it every other day up to 3 times a week. I use it every day for 10 min. and love it. I am over 60 years old and I can visibly see much firmer legs and arms. It is a fun machine. I am still exploring the many ways to strengthen my body.
Amazon was great to buy from. Everything arrived on time and in great condition.

Recently heard about this type of exercise for the first time. I was not very familiar with vibration training, but when traveling through England about a month ago, I saw the Power Plate being sold in Harrods, the enormous London superstore. Actually found out it is as big in Europe as pilates and spinning is in the United States...there are Power Plate studios all over!
It sounded like a gimmick...a vibrating platform that can give you a better workout than lifting weights? But this is totally a product you have to see and try out to believe. The vibrating platform makes your muscles tense up and react to the movement, so you get a more intense workout than you could directly on the ground. It's a weird feeling at first, but you can really tell you muscles are contracting to "right" itself (like if you were pushed and all your muscles tensed) very quickly, like over 50 times a second. There is a lot of science behind it, too...a little confusing, but basically it uses the principles of F=MxA and so with the greater frequency you add, the greater the force on your body. But instead of having to add on heavy weights to see results, you can build up your exercise on this by frequency and time. Since it is an internal force, coming up through your legs, it is super easy on your joints. I did research on the company's website, and there are over 100 studies on how the plate increases circulation, helps with bone density (so could help with the effects of osteoporosis), and how it can decrease cellulite (the vibrations help drain lymphatic fluid)...and I was hooked!
I have had it for a short amount of time, but completely love the product and can use it as an all in one: stretching, warm-up, massage, strength training, etc. I am really happy to decided to purchase this, and it's a blast showing it off to family and friends and explaining the technology.

Ok, so took my first 20 minute class on a power plate doing a series of squats and arm exercises together and switching to planks and push ups....let me tell you....these things work! They're a blessing for people like me with busy schedules. They allow you to work your muscles rapidly which you can't physically do unless on the power plate, thus results way faster. Love these machines. Whoever says they dont work or are hype are full of shiitake mushrooms! Lol
