Global Leaders in Whole Body Vibration Training Deliver a 12-Week Periodized Program Utilizing Power Plate's Groundbreaking Technology Focusing on Balance, Brain, and Bone Health


CHICAGO – July 31, 2019 – Power Plate, the global leader in whole body vibration training equipment to help you Prepare Faster, Perform Better and Recover Quicker is used by professional athletes, celebrities, health professionals and fitness enthusiasts around the world for more than 20 years .Today they announced a new, innovative Small Group Training (SGT) program, THRIVE. This 30-minute, cutting- edge SGT program was developed specifically with the active-aging community in mind, focusing on balance, brain and bone health, enabling users to feel confident, stay active and improve their health.

Scientifically proven based on decades of research and development, Power Plate’s patented PrecisionWaveTM technology is the critical component of the THRIVE program. This advanced technology provides users with harmonic vibrations that trigger the body’s natural reflex response, making it an ideal, safe, low impact and effective solution for the active-aging population.

“The U.S. population consists of more than 76 million ‘baby boomers,’ and as our society ages there are limited fitness resources available to this sector of consumers – a true problem,” said Laura Wilson, Global Director of Small Group Training for Power Plate. “Power Plate and whole-body vibration technology has been scientifically proven to help with fall prevention, motor learning and motor control, which are key issues impacting the active-aging community. We’re excited to debut THRIVE and continue having a positive impact on a group of fitness enthusiasts that stand to reap a wide array of benefits from the program.”

The 12-week periodized program provides users with one new workout per week. THRIVE was designed to improve bone density and circulation, pain and joint relief, increased range of motion, stability, balance, and strength. Each Power Plate THRIVE workout is only 30 minutes, which includes a warm-up focusing on mobility and stability movements, two working sections that focus on strength and balance, and recovery that promotes functional flexibility and includes massage therapy for improved blood flow and additional recovery.
