IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Known for his power at bat, two-time All-Star shortstop for the Colorado Rockies, Troy Tulowitzki relies on Power Plate® to keep him at the top of his game. Power Plate Acceleration Training™ is the perfect addition to any fitness regimen where the goal is to increase explosive strength, balance, muscular endurance and overall agility, which is why many MLB athletes and training facilities such as Mark Verstegen's Athletes' Performance and IMG Academies turn to Power Plate.
Ranked in the top 10 in multiple offensive categories (HRs, RBIs, SLG & OPS) for the National League, Troy prepares for the field using Power Plate equipment. "Playing shortstop is extremely dynamic and unpredictable. I've got to be ready for anything, and training with a Power Plate machine has really helped me to deliver on the field," Tulowitzki said. "In terms of delivering explosive power and core strength, nothing comes close to what I get by using Acceleration Training on Power Plate equipment."
"Power-hitting shortstops are a rare and valuable weapon in the major leagues, and we're pleased to be able to support Troy's efforts to put up such impressive numbers," Mark de Gorter, President of Power Plate North America said. "Power Plate training, with its unique whole body vibration technology, has been shown to increase core strength, muscle power and stability, which for Troy means quick reflexes on the field, and great bat speed at the plate."
Power Plate technology provides one of the most efficient and dynamic total-body workouts in less than 30 minutes. The technology utilizes scientifically-proven Advanced Vibration Technology that naturally stimulates muscle reactions 25–50 times per second.
