New York City, NY (PRWEB) June 26, 2004
Phoenix Fitness Club in the heart of Chelsea is the first health club in New York City to offer the latest technological advancement in health and fitness. The VibroGym is a rapidly vibrating platform on which exercises are performed. This "space age" equipment (used by the Soviet Cosmonauts) is now also used by Olympic and professional athletes.
The VibroGym (formerly Power Plate) generates vibrations that are transferred from the platform to the body. Standing on the VibroGym makes the body automatically adjust to these mechanical stimuli. Muscles will contract and expand 30 to 50 times per second, depending on vibration selected.
The additional muscle contraction expedites fat loss while increasing bone density and muscle tone. Compared to traditional training methods, exercises performed on the VibroGym achieve better results in less time and with no extra effort.
Moreover, the vibrations increase the production of regenerative and repair hormones, improve blood circulation in skin and muscles, strengthen bone tissue, improve lymph drainage, and increase the basal metabolic rate. All this results in more strength, more speed, and more stamina, as well as rapid recovery of muscles and tissue, increased flexibility, mobility and coordination, anti-cellulitis, collagen improvement, and fat reduction. The VibroGym offers a wide range of possibilities for use in the areas of Sports, Fitness, Beauty, Health and Rehabilitation.
"The exercise benefits that patients can gain with this device can increase the scope of rehabilitative medicine. It has possibilities, for example, for use in cardiac rehabilitation patients."
John Gianutsos, Ph.D.
Director of the Manhattan Project for the Restoration of Motor Function Rusk Institute of the NYU School of Medicine
"I have found the Power Plate to deliver the essence of plyometric training in a safe and effective manner for both training and rehabilitation. The results have been predictable and directly related to the research. Our athletes have experienced strength gains, reactivity increases and increases in range of motion."
Donald Chu, Ph.D.
Director, Athletic Training & Rehabilitation Stanford University
President, California State Board of Physical Therapy
"As a 13-year veteran, I'm no stranger to the nagging injuries and overall physical toll that a 162-game season takes on your body, and to that point, the Power Plate has been a godsend in preventing injury and keeping me on the field. Not only is it enhancing my performance capability in this latter part of my career, but it's also providing me a tool IÂll use to maintain my flexibility, muscle strength and overall mobility throughout my life beyond baseball."
Eric Karros, Professional Baseball Player and Los Angeles Dodgers all-time home run leader
