Power Plate System

We chose the Power Plate to use in the Great Bones system, as it is considered to be the best vibration plate on the market today. This idea was first developed for the Russian space program. There is minimal gravitational force in space, muscles and bones are not stimulated to grow in space, as they are on earth. You need gravity to cause impact on the bones and body. Read More.....


Exercise Corner!

Muscle Burns Fat and is Smaller in Size.

Did you know that increased muscle mass is directly attributed to increases in one’s metabolism? Muscle is calorically more taxing on the body than fat. An increase in muscle will increase the body’s natural fat burning mechanisms in order to build and maintain muscle that is being stimulated to grow.

When the body is not being encouraged to grow or maintain muscle, it will use it as energy and replace it with fat cells. Muscle also is more dense than fat. 5 pounds of fat is almost 3 times the size of 5 pounds of muscle.

We always remind our clients not to be numbers bound on your scale. You may actually have an increase in weight when you start a strength training routine. But, the distribution of size in your body will change and decrease in key areas. If you want to change your body into its healthiest form, strength training is the answer.

We suggest you take advantage of the offer below to see just how easy strength training can be.


PUMPKIN RICOTTA PANCAKES

This is a nice fall pancake recipe for a lazy weekend breakfast.

1 stick butter (8 Tbsp.)

1 1/3 cup buttermilk

3 large eggs

1 ¼ cup flour

1 Tbsp. sugar

2 ½ tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla

½ cup pumpkin

1/3 cup ricotta

Sift all dry ingredients together in a large bowl, set aside.

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in buttermilk and set aside. Beat eggs and slowly mix in lukewarm butter mixture.

Pour egg mixture into flour, a little at a time, until flour is just moistened. Batter should be lumpy and will start to bubble.

Fold in pumpkin puree, vanilla and ricotta until fully combined.

Cook on griddle and serve with maple syrup.
