Are you tired of waiting in line at the gym to get your turn on a vibration plate? Well, the Series 300 Medicarn power plate allows you to exercise from the comfort of your home. With over a decade of experience in designing high-quality vibration plates, Medicarn appears to have made the Series 300 product just as good as any vibration plate machine found at a fitness salon. It offers variable speed settings to accommodate any fitness level and you can enjoy unrivaled stability by grasping support bars mounted on the sides.
Let’s dive into the features that this piece of fitness equipment has to offer.
Wide and Heavy Duty Platform with an Oscillating Power Plate
The standing platform on this vibration plate is just a little over 2 feet wide, which provides plenty of space for a variety of exercises. From squats and lunges, to push-ups and back exercises, the series 300 will give you a full body workout. The side mounted bars can get in the way if you want to lie on the platform to do crunches or massage the back. Fortunately, they can be easily unscrewed and put reassembled again later.
With a maximum load tolerance of 150 kg, this vibration plate is suitable even for heavier individuals. This model also features overload current protection as well as anti-jamming and anti-static mechanisms that safeguard the machine from malfunctions.
The power plate rocks from side to side since Meidcarn’s Series 300 is an oscillating vibration plate. Power plates like this one have a platform that rests on a pivotal point. So, as one side of the plate rises, the other half falls. The motion created is more or less similar to walking, which provides a more comfortable workout.
Extra Large and Easy to Use Digital Control Panel
Setting up the Series 300 Medicarn vibration plate is easy thanks to its extra-large digital control panel. You can select the workout program and speed setting at the push of a button. As an added bonus, this machine is equipped with a body mass index scanner. The three LED displays on the console provide feedback information such as current body fat percentage, workout duration as well as the selected program and speed. Accessing the control panel is an easy task since it’s mounted on a stem that rises up to 4.5 feet high from the base.
Pre-loaded with 8 Workout Programs
The Medicarn Series 300 power plate comes pre-loaded with 8 exercise modes. These adjustable pre-programmed workouts provide varying levels of vibration speeds that are suitable for all levels of fitness, including beginners. This allows you to change the intensity of your workouts as your fitness level increases.
Easy to Assemble and Comes with Workout and Instruction DVD
Although the Medicarn vibration plate comes in parts, it’s very simple to assemble. It takes about 30 minute to put the machine together. Everything that’s required to assemble the machine has been provided in the package, including an assembly video guide and mounting screws. In addition, the package also comes with a DVD containing video demonstrations of common workouts that will help you get the most out of your new vibration plate machine.
