No Pain, No Gain? Not at Great Bones, unless You Ask for it...

May 14th, 2014

“No pain, no gain” is a common sentiment among many gym-goers but that is not the motto at Great Bones.

“We can crush you with an intense workout if that’s what you want” said owner Martin “but the point is, we don’t have to for you to achieve great results”. Using two unique pieces of equipment not normally found in gyms outside of Seattle Seahawks facilities or others professional sports team, the bioDensity machine and the Power Plate offer an exercise experience truly unlike any other. The Power Plate is a vibrating platform on which regular exercises, like a wall-sit, can be performed. Exercising on the Power Plate while vibrating engages significantly more muscles than the targeted group, making the same workout more effective in lesser amount of time without additional cognitive intensity. As the body vibrates, the central nervous system reacts and subconsciously tells your body’s muscles to move and contract to maintain balance—it’s literally a no-brainer, making workouts seem more effortless.

It can be difficult to believe that a 20 minute, once a week workout could be effective, though the benefits and results from the Power Plate and bioDensity machine are impressive—ranging from increased bone density, flexibility, muscle mass, and balance; reversal and prevention of Osteoporosis; and complementary results to improve the ability to perform any physical activity for avid athletes like marathon runners, to those simply looking to climb steps and go about their daily lives with confidence and less pain.

The science behind the effectiveness of the bioDensity machine and Power Plate is both interesting and extensive. Owners Martin, Art, and Phyllis Rasmussen are three of only four trainers certified to train clients utilizing the equipment in the state of Oregon; their wealth of knowledge and ability to translate the technical, scientific aspects into enlightening and comprehensible concepts is encouraging. Clients are not only provided with the “know-how” for each exercise, but the “why”…unless the client isn’t interested in the scientific jargon. Great Bones does an exceptional job tailoring each and every exercise experience to suit each client—focusing on the client’s goals with undivided attention. Martin, Art, or Phyllis guide each client through their workout, meaning there are never more than two other clients using the facility at one time.

While looking and feeling good are obvious exercise goals, Great Bones clients see positive effects that are not only skin deep, but in their bones. The bioDensity machine and the Power Plate combined with Art, Martin, and Phyllis’ guidance can help prevent, and even reverse osteoporosis. After the age of 50, one in two women and one in four men will break a bone due to  Osteoporosis, also known as the “silent disease”, bone health needs to be taken seriously.

“It’s (Osteoporosis) an epidemic” said Martin. Clients with Osteoporosis have seen great results using the bioDenisty machine. Strength gains  and progress is easy to track; the bioDensity Machine records results each week that are emailed to clients after completing the session. Whether your family has a history of Osteoporosis and you’re looking to be proactive, or maybe you’re like Michelle Mason and Ada Boje, looking to build strength for the upcoming Dragon Boat Races, Great Bones welcomes anyone that wants to improve their bone and overall health to try two free sessions. By the way, each sessions ends with a massage…
