“I love using Power Plate as part of my fitness regime as I can do a really intensive work out in such a short space of time. As a working mother with a hectic work schedule, using the Power Plate machine helps me stay in shape without having to spend hours in the gym.”

“I love that with the Power Plate, I can get a full work out at home in next to no time. I really am impressed with the machine’s ability to target and recruit specific muscles and improve my flexibility at the same time. It just feels good.”

“Power Plate is critical to my strength and agility training. It has helped to significantly increase my core motion, bat speed and stability, which are key to my performance at the plate and in the field.”

Sarah Harmer

Olympian

"When races are decided by a fraction of a second, I need the absolute best training equipment—and my Power Plate machine is it! Before the Beijing Olympics, I had the worst back injury in my career. Not only did the Power Plate machine get me healthy enough to win but it also gave me the strength I needed to set two new world records! Power Plate training keeps me healthy and gives me that extra edge over my competitors.”

Vibe Fitness Testimonials

 "I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and although I am able to successfully manage normal daily activities, I have struggled with the fitness aspect of my life.  I have tried many things over the years but ultimately once I started to physically challenge myself, my joints would get sore.  Then I discovered the Power Plate.  With Darcy's guidance I have been training on the Power Plate for over 8 months now.  I immediately really enjoyed it.  I like the one on one environment as well as the session being just half an hour.  Darcy was very gradual with my program and I could feel myself getting stronger.  I am now very surprised with the exercises that I am doing on the Power Plate and how physically strong I feel.  For the days, although they are few, that I am not feeling well, Darcy is able to guide me through an adjusted program so I come away feeling better that I did going in.  About 5 months after I started on the Power Plate, Darcy said "why don't you give Bootcamp a try?"  I really did not think my body could handle a Bootcamp workout but Darcy was encouraging.  I just signed up for my second session and I love it.  I am really excited about my progress and I am so thankful I found Darcy and her Power Plate."

"I began Darcy Wade's boot camp back in June of this year and am so pleased with the results I have received so far. Two times a week we go through a series of strength training and cardio exercises that have proven effective not only physically but mentally as well. We start with a warmup and proceed to the various exercises including pushups, lots of ab work and great workout stations for arms and legs. Darcy mixes it up each session so you never feel bored. The setting is enjoyable especially when the workouts are performed outdoors but also just as successful in the indoor studio. Darcy also provides us with valuable nutritional information including recipes and helpful tips for a healthier lifestyle. I would recommend her boot camp to anyone who is interested in toning up, losing inches, sleeping better or just making a lifestyle change."

Chris - Oakville, ON

"Darcy and her Power Plate have been the only constant in my fitness regime for the past several years.  I know it's because I can do an intensive workout in a short period of time.  Darcy always has a different workout routine for me so it's never boring.  With the Power Plate I can target specific muscles and improve flexibility all at the same time.  There are a couple of times a year in particular when I thank Darcy and what she has done for me with my personalized Power Plate fitness program.  It's that first day of the snowboarding season and I don't have to stop multiple times down the mountain because my quads are burning so bad or, the day after the first day of wakeboarding and I am not crying about the pain I feel in my shoulders or my back.  From stretching to strength training, massages to relaxation, a workout with Darcy covers it all.  Oh ya she gives you great nutrition advice and recipes all while you're working out.  Very important for a multi-tasker like me."

"I have worked with Darcy for a few years. She is skilled, thoughtful, sensible, and a pleasure to work with and talk to. Every session is custom tailored to what my body needs that day, be it a cardio workout, strength training, stretching, recovery massage or any combination of the above!  Power Plate always leaves me feeling energized and ready to tackle the rest of the day."

Darlene - Oakville, ON

"Three years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Symptoms show up mostly on the left side of my body, most visible is a tremor in my left hand that comes and goes throughout the day as it stops and resets.

On a recent visit in Oakville I was introduced to Power Plate by Darcy Wade who is a trainer and has a studio downtown Oakville.

My first experience on the vibrating machine was on October 18, 2013. I did various postures on a low setting for approximately 15 min. After the session was over there was a noticeable difference in my hand: the tremor had completely stopped! This lasted for some time, but it’s hard to remember how long as I kept thinking it would return any minute and didn’t time it. It did, however, came back later but with less intensity.

On October 19 we did a second session, same amount of time as the first time but with more postures added. Afterwards my hand tremor was still there but with less intensity, and I experienced a gentle invigorating feeling as if my whole body had been energized.

Then on October 20 we did a third session, same amount of time but with more postures added and at a higher vibrating setting. Again my whole body felt energized and again my tremor subsided.

I came away from the PP experience with a general feeling of wellbeing and a noticeable increase in energy, which I imagine was due to an increase in blood flow.

In the following days there was a noticeable yet subtle difference in my demeanor and positive feelings continued throughout the week. Another delightful side affect was that I was able to concentrate on other things and people more easily.

I did not know how scientifically the machine works but Darcy was most happy to explain the process to me.

I firmly believe in the potential of PP and would love to find a place in Ottawa, where I live, to continue using Power Plate."
