Power Plate Proof: See Sustained Weight Loss with Power Plate

What happens when you add Power Plate training to a low-calorie diet? Plenty, it turns out. A recent study published in The European Journal of Obesity shows that not only does Power Plate training reduce visceral fat (more on that in a minute), but may also help maintain weight loss goals long-term once achieved.

Visceral Fat Vanishes with Power Plate

The study defines visceral fat as the fat tissue between the organs in the abdomen. High levels of visceral fat cause concern among doctors, the researchers report: Medical studies cited in the study show a strong correlation between high levels of visceral fat and the incidence of cardiovascular diseases, such as heart disease, hypertension and diabetes.

It’s no secret that a diet low in calories and saturated fats is healthier for your heart. According to the results of the study, adding vibration training to a healthy diet helps achieve:

  • Weight loss of over 10%—which is maintained longer than without vibration training.
  • Double the amount of visceral fat reduced—much greater than through diet alone or traditional cardio training.

Power Plate Provides Effective Exercise for All

An added benefit of Power Plate claimed by the study is the universal benefit that Power Plate provides—regardless of the user’s age, weight, or current level of conditioning. First, as a low-impact exercise, Power Plate may reduce stress on knees and joints—making it ideal for anyone recovering from injury or just beginning an exercise routine.

Second, the researchers conclude that Power Plate gets results in less time (making it a more palatable option for anyone short on time or exercise-averse). The typical time for traditional fitness training is about 60 minutes or more, the study’s authors explain; when regularly performed, a typical Power Plate session can achieve results in 30 minutes or less.

The study makes a provocative claim: Adding vibration training with Power Plate to a low-cal diet can help achieve sustained weight loss long-term. In addition, the researchers conclude that Power Plate training can help reduce visceral fat more than cardio and aerobic exercise alone.
