What Is The Benefit Of The Power Plate?

The power of whole body vibration is two-fold: Circulation and Up-Regulation.
The circulatory benefits are related to increased skin blood flow due to the demand of the areas of the body on the plate. Common movements within a WorkFit session are with 1 or both feet placed on the plate. The vibrations move up the body creating a higher demand on the lower extremities and hip regions, which are areas of the body that are dormant with long durations of sitting. Increased circulation can improve energy and enhance recovery within the body.
Up-regulation is related to the nervous system. When an individual performs movements on the Power Plate their proprioceptors (nerve endings located on muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, and more) sense the vibration as a new stimuli challenging their body position and ability to move. They respond by sending signals afferently up to the brain requesting the brain process this new stimuli and respond. The response is to “turn on” more help. This up-regulation means dormant regions of the body are awoken and called into action. The result – better conditioning results in less time.
We believe that WorkFit with the help of whole body vibration can make more of an impact in less time (vs non-vibration) – that impact is more energy, and a body that is more mobile and flexible. Obviously as you know, just the opposite of prolonged sitting.

What Is The Benefit Of the True Stretch?

The True Stretch was designed to enhance the flexibility and mobility of the body through support. The True Stretch creates an environment with 4 points of contact. Hands and feet are touching the platform or bars providing safety and security. An environment that enhances the bodies ability to focus on the goal – Flexibility & Mobility without worrying about falling.

One of the primary movement strategies that WorkFit utilizes is know as the Matrix Performance Systems. The system is designed to integrate flexibility, balance, and strength by challenging the body to move at different angles, planes, and distances from the starting point. Movements such as lunging, reaching, and squatting are utilized to Rewind, Realign, And Rejuvenate the body.
