Live Oak incorporates Whole Body Vibration (WBV) into our workout protocols by using the Power Plate Pro5. WBV was originally used by cosmonauts to help reduce muscle and bone loss from extended stays in zero gravity conditions. Today, many leading medical facilities and professional sports teams use the Power Plate as part of their training programs. Using Power Plate has been linked to increases in flexibility, bone density, strength, circulation, pain and stress reduction. At Live Oak, we enjoy using the Power Plate Pro5 primarily as a recovery tool after high-intensity training sessions, and to allow our clients time to relax and calmly transition back into the real world.
