Stevie Nicks Uses the Power Plate to Stay in Shape

Cindy Crawford isn't the only hot mama who mixes in the Power Plate to her workouts. Still rocking 60-year-old Stevie Nicks credits her fit-for-touring physique to the vibrating device that she uses for 13 minutes every other day. She notes, "You can't get results faster than that."

The Power Plate made its debut into the fitness world back in 2006, and its growing popularity is evident in the number of mainstream gyms that now offer this piece of equipment. People have reacted positively to the efficient workout that claims to cause "rapid and intense muscle contractions 30-50 times per second."

Ms. Fleetwood Mac complements her Power Plate fitness fixation with a healthy attitude toward weight. She suggests striving to achieve a weight that's maintainable, saying, "You don't have to weigh 105 lbs. Weigh 125 lbs. and stay there."

This vocal legend could be on to something. Have you tested the Power Plate?

Power Plate has completely changed my body! The thing people have to realize is that it isn't about weight loss and fat burning. It isn't cardio. Power plate works even the most minute muscles that are hard to work otherwise and really shapes your body. I've never felt better about myself. And, the best thing is that I only practice it 2 times a week for 20 minutes!

I use it at my gym for doing my stretches once a week. I've read horror stories about the vibrations and what they can do to your head (neuragia and such) so I limit my usage. I really doubt it's any substitute for good old fashioned cardio!

I've always been a bit sceptical about Power Plates. Like, I get the reasoning behind it... but I'm not convinced it can give more effective results than just doing lunges/squats/etc straight...

I would like to at least try it because I think it would feel really nice...like a deep tissue massage or something. I wouldn't bank on it doing anything super significant, but if it massages your muscles like that, it might be a nice addition to your workout routine.

I wish that I had one for the sake of my boyfriend. I feel like it would get him to be a lot healthier, and it's also supposed to help a LOT with the symptoms of M.S.

I have used it quite a bit, it just sits in the corner of my gym being lonely. I'm sure it's because most people have realized the thing doesn't work for significant fat loss or muscle tone. It's GREAT for relaxing muscles, but honestly, that's about it. I dunno, I'd say it was because I'm already pretty darn fit (so not much difference to be seen) but I've seen lots of other people ditch it after a few months. I promise I'm not trying to be snotty-- I'm just literally baffled by these celeb endorsements. My best guess is, at best, it's certainly not the sole key to their success.

I've never tried the power plate but the I Shape I think that's what it was called. it was basically the same thing for like 5000 dollars less and you can put both feet on the plate at the same time. My mum and I went looking for treadmills and I saw it and was like what is that thing. the lady let me do a demo and I only did five minutes of it but It felt like i did non stop lunges for like 5 minutes even though i just stood there in the position.
