Power plate

This is a Power plate, maybe they're called something different in the US?

I think that they basically vibrate and you do different exercises on them, don't really have much idea but would get a little coaching on it.

Not sure I'm ready to see my wobbly bits vibrating madly!


  1. Ohhh! They have one at my gym. Never knew what it was!

  2. Boy.. I must really be out in the boonies! I've never seen one of those before!!

    I thought "Power Plate" was a high calorie dinner offered at a fast food restaurant!!

    Just kidding, but I really have never seen one of those - you'll have to tell me how it is!

  3. Ah! I gotcha1 Ummm...I haven't really heard great things. I suppose the idea is that keeping your balance helps work your core. I believe you could do the same thing using a balance ball. Just my 2 cents.

  4. These were becoming big when I left the UK in '07. They are still not that popular here in Aus so I have had a chance to try one. I'm a bit skeptical about their true value. Might be a bit of a get-fit-quick gimmick.

  5. Strange coincidence - I spoke to my mum this evening and she's just joined a gym. Today she went for her 'introduction' session and they have a power plate, but you have to pay extra to use it there too (£1 per session). She had a quick go and said she can now understand what the workmen who use pnuematic drills must feel like. I'm not sure if that's good or bad?!

  6. Hiya Girlie! Just thinking about you and wondering how you are!?
