More than just an exercise and rehabilitation machine, Power Plate® machines offer the capacity for whole body massage and relaxation. Not only can Power Plate® machines passively work all the muscle groups in the body, but they can reduce stress by decreasing cortisol levels while raising levels of serotonin. Using Power Plate® machines helps increase circulation and oxygenate blood flow, leading to a decrease in toxins in the body, which causes a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.  These benefits contribute significantly to the complete spa experience.

Lactate Tests
Our services

Lactate has been one of the most studied variables in exercise physiology in the last 30 years. The primary reason for this interest is that blood lactate levels are an excellent marker/indicator of the conditionings level of the athlete.

How does it work?

Blood Lactate measurement is used by sport scientists, coaches and athletes to accurately determine Heart Rate training zones, recovery and much more. Lactate is a metabolic product that can be measured by taking a drop of blood at a finger tip the same way diabetics monitor their blood sugar level. The blood lactate level increases with exercise intensity and shows clearly the transition from aerobic to anaerobic activity. Since the measurement is completely individual it gives a precise method for testing and monitoring training intensity and recovery.

Do you want to make sure that what you do works optimally for you?

Blood Lactate testing is far more precise than the outdated and inaccurate method of using percentages of maximum heart rate to set training zones. Because heart rate is an individual response, heart rate training zones need to be determined by measurement of physiological variables not set by mathematical formulas.

Do you want to make the most of the time that you have available?

The relationship between exercise intensity and heart rate is different for different exercises, eg. heart rates for running will not be the same as heart rates for cycling for any given intensity. Training programs should not be based on general heart rate guidelines rather they should be based on individual responses. This can be achieved through lactate testing.

How much guesswork are you willing to involve in your training and how much time have you got to waste?

Now you can optimize and take the guesswork out of your training using Lactate Tests at Star Plate Studio.
