What Would Sir Issac Newton Say About Power Plate?

Posted by Kenna M.

Writer's Answer

I came across this new cario machine called Power Plate. It operates on Newton's theory that the force of an object is equal to its mass multiplied by acceleration, or f = m x a. "What this means is that one can improve functional force (stability, strength or power) by either applying more mass or more acceleration to the body."

In simple terms as the human body accelerates on the machine it simulates the body getting heavier. So, low impact is super maintain and optimum impact is obtained with no strain on the body.

Wow! That's pretty cardio.

Has anyone heard of this machine yet? Or used one?

Here's the link to their site:
