Without the Power-Plate and the determination of the gym instructors to get me walking again, I think I would have still been hobbling around on crutches, or worse, maybe a wheel-chair, for a very long time. I am now starting to get my life back!

I have been attending the Fitness Finesse Gym since early July 2002. Since I am unable to do conventional exercises, I go three times per week for sessions on the Power-Plate.
When I first attended all the muscles in my left leg were becoming wasted and it was very difficult and painful to walk. Now those muscles are beginning to bulk up again and walking is be- coming easier. I had been unable to lift my arm above my head for several years. Now I can move my arm freely.
I have noticed that my whole body tone is improving, and my weight is reducing. Also my blood pressure and blood sugar levels appear to be stabilising.

Congratulations to June and Malcolm for the addition of the 'POWER-PLATE' at FITNESS FINESSE.
I was born with slightly deformed feet and at that time there was no operation available to cure my problem. I didn't have a lot of flexibility in my feet but with the help of padding and numerous supports (orthotics) I have been able to race-walk, run and cycle.
Unfortunately, as I got older my feet became arthritic and a lot of the flexibility I had was quickly disappearing and my feet were very painful - I was also having pain in my knees.
I am now pleased to say that after using the POWER-PLATE for about 8 weeks my feet are less painful - I have more flexibility than I have ever had and I don't need to wear padding or orthotics in my shoes.
I can't praise this machine enough and I shall continue to use it on a regular basis.
