Toning Up in Less Time – Courteney Cox Swears by Power Plate

What would you do if you’re a 40-year-old divorcee who’s ready to hunt in the love jungle? For Courteney Cox, it’s jumping onto the Power Plate.
To play Jules Cobb, the attractive, physically fit, newly single mom in the sitcom Cougar Town, Cox got into incredible shape by exercising on the Power Plate machine. “The Power Plate machine has dramatically changed my workout,” the actress avowed. “I know that every muscle in my body is being ignited in ways that you can’t do with traditional training. Its uses are limitless. I love this machine!”
Cox isn’t the only celeb who swears by the Power Plate. Supermodels like Claudia Schiffer and Elle MacPherson, as well as stars like Hilary Swank and Rachel Weisz, are also fans of the machine. “On top of that, it’s used by over 60 college- and pro-sports teams, and the Police brought one with them on their reunion tour,” FitSugar reported. “That’s some serious street cred.”
The Magic Behind the Power Plate
The magic behind the Power Plate is its vibration technology. The vibrating plate transmits energy waves to your body, which contract your muscles 25 to 50 times per second. This will work the muscles you never knew existed and help increase strength, bone density, and blood circulation.
If used properly, you’ll get the most efficient total-body workout in less than 30 minutes, claims the manufacturer. In other words, you’ll lose weight and build muscles faster when you use the Power Plate – perfect for those who are short on time.
“My clients, like Courteney Cox, prefer Power Plate machines to tone, tighten, and get red-carpet ready in less time,” said celebrity trainer Michelle Lovitt. “If your schedule doesn’t always allow time for traditional exercise, Power Plate Acceleration Training is great because you get a full, targeted workout in as little as three 30-minute sessions a week, and still see amazing results.”
Power Plate comes in both professional and personal models. Check with your gym to find out whether they have Power Plates installed.
For those of you who want to work out anytime at the privacy of your own home, the personal models are a no-brainer.
