Black Friday, 2020

Black Friday, 2020

The term ‘Black Friday’ originates back to 1950’s Philadelphia.  Local police used to refer to the day between Thanksgiving and the Army-Navy game (American college football rivalry game) as Black Friday, owing to the masses of shoppers who visited the city that day to begin their Christmas shopping.  The shops were overwhelmed and the police typically had to work long or extra shifts in order to control the masses and maintain public order. 

Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday of November.  This year, 2020, Thanksgiving is the 26th November, therefore Black Friday is the 27th.  Traditionally, (pre-COVID) shops and stores would open incredibly early in the morning and stay open very late to maximise sales – equally, shoppers would be bargain-hunting for as much of the day as possible, attempting to reduce the money spent on Christmas presents whilst maintaining quality by purchasing reputable brands.  This has, in the past, led to some rather frantic, shopping behaviour.  Riots, fights and even deaths have occurred on Black Friday – some 111 since 2006!

With the UK in lockdown until December the 2nd, many have wondered if Black Friday will be allowed to go ahead this year, but, of course, the internet is a safe haven for shoppers! will be hosting our own event which will include 15% savings on our Power Plate® - this could save you up to £899.99 on our Power Plate® my7™ which is not only a fantastic cash saving but will allow you a final burst of targeting weight loss prior to the festive period and see you carry this exercising momentum through to the new year.

All About Our Power Plate®

All About Our Power Plate®

A vibration plate or 'Power Plate' is an exercise machine that directs high-speed vibrations through every muscle in the body. The Power Plate works by stimulating your muscles at a greater rate than usual. This additional stimulation forces your muscles to contract and relax between 30 and 50 times a second.

One of the most admired of the Power Plate benefits is its ability to aid weight loss. Just 10 minutes a day on a vibration plate can help you achieve your weight loss goals. This is because using a Power Plate turns up the intensity of your normal workout, it boosts your metabolism so you'll burn more fat at a higher rate.

In just one ten-minute session with our Power Plate machine, you can burn up to 190 calories.

REMEMBER: Significant weight loss is often reported by those who use Power Plate regularly in conjunction with a healthy, calorie-controlled diet.

Ideally, you should be using our Power Plate at least 2-3 times per week for 30-minute workouts. This is going to provide your body with an all-over, fat-blasting and toning experience.  TIP: Keep the sessions short to ensure you can ramp up the intensity. (HIIT)

At maximum efficiency and effort, the best estimates put the number of calories used up are between 300 and 500 for a 30 minutes session on a vibration plates machine, although this number is variable depending on which exercises you do and how you utilise the machine.

IN ADDITION: The Power Plate machine results in increased lymphatic flow.  Why is this important? Enhanced lymphatic drainage can help you expedite your body's natural way of getting rid of toxins by pushing fluid to the lymph channels through a gentle and targeted technique. Getting your a Lymphatic flow maximised can lead not only to lose weight but to excellent overall health.
