Every now and again, the fitness industry comes up with a revolutionary machine or concept that almost overnight becomes a fitness sensation. The Power Plate is the perfect example.
These oscillating plates can be found in most big gym chains and leisure centres up and down the Country, with gym bunnies hopping on them and hoping that the vibrations coursing through their muscles will help to shift some fat and sculpt those thighs.
If you have arrived at this post after reading my article on the main fitFAQS website, you will know my opinion on where i believe power plates should fit into our fitness regime but i, and thousands of other vistitors to fitFAQS, are keen to hear your experiences on the power plate and how they have improved / changed the way you train.
Are they just another expensive Gimic the fitness industry could do without or have you found that vibrating plates are the best invention since the wheel and have a long future in the corner of the gym shaking and sculpting our bits to perfection?
