PowerFit FTW was created after owner Shelby, lived in LA for 3 years and fell
in love with the revolutionary workout concept. After moving back to her home
of Fort Worth, Texas she decided to create her own brand and bring Power Plate training to Texas. The 30 minute workout takes place on a Power Plate machine which has been utilized by professional athletes and celebrities for years.
A certified medical device, this machine is also used for those with spasticity
issues as seen in people with Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, and spinal cord injury patients.

"I believe so much in the health, wellness and aesthetic benefits of working out on the Power Plates, it’s only a short time before the public realizes the multitude of benefits these plates have to offer."
Owner / Certified Power Plate® Trainer
Shelby is currently building the PowerFit brand and plans to expand throughout Texas and the Southeast. Come see what all the buzz is about.

How it works

Power Plates® uses harmonic vibration technology, which contracts your muscles 30-50 times per second. This allows you to increase the effectiveness of your workout, while significantly reducing the amount of time you actually have to spend working out.
Power Plate is harmonic vibration, instantly triggering the body’s natural reflex stabilization mechanism to adapt to changes in the natural environment. Rapid, precise, and predictable reflexive activation prepares our body for dynamic activities at a subconscious level. With each harmonic vibration, Power Plate stimulates rapid reflexive muscle responses (Tonic Vibration Reflex or TVR) through our proprioceptors, improving functional performance, gait and locomotion, balance, range of motion, circulation and stability. Power Plate’s vibrating surface vibrates 25-50 times per second, resulting in corresponding muscle activation. Performing an exercise at 30Hz for 30 seconds will provoke 900 muscle actions. This means you can accelerate acquisition and retention of skills associated with movement at a rapid rate.
Power Plate’s scientifically-documented efficacy is based on a body’s natural response to vibration, and centers on a patented dual-synch driven vibrating platform that triggers 30 to 50 reflexive muscle contractions per second. As the user’s body works to regain stability, up to 95 percent of the body’s muscle fibers become engaged in any single movement, significantly amplifying the effectiveness of any exercise performed on the plate. Research also shows that whole-body vibration stimulates the body’s natural production of the regenerative growth hormone that maintains tissue repair, muscle growth, brain function, energy and metabolism.

After hopping around to Alabama, Georgia, and California, I have finally decided to grow some roots in my hometown of Fort Worth. I am so excited to share this awesome machine, the Power Plate, that I discovered while living in LA. My biggest reason for opening my own studio is because I believe that so many workouts are so rough on your body in the long run. Working out on the Power Plate is not only time efficient, but also offers a multitude of health benefits from flushing toxins out of your body to decrease the appearance of cellulite!

I have spent my entire life in the field of fitness, health/wellness… as an athlete, then coach. Through my many years of education and especially experience, I’ve learned that there really is healing through movement. Get skinny quick plans don’t work, but working towards a stronger, fitter, more mobile, durable human does. Which also makes you healthier, happier and feel better. A byproduct of that is looking great and living a better life. This is where I come in. I have the experience and knowledge to help each client reach that.

You don’t get old from the years going by, you get old because you stop moving.
