Athletes' Performance, recognized as an industry leader offering the highest level of integrated performance training, performance physical therapy and the most fully-integrated training system in the world and Power Plate North America, the global leader in whole-body vibration training products featuring advanced vibration technology, announced today a five-year extension to the strategic partnership that began in 2005.
The agreement extends Power Plate's position as an Elite Performance Partner and the Official Whole Body Vibration Provider for Athletes' Performance Institutes nationwide. Athletes' Performance will spearhead ongoing education in whole-body vibration training applications and techniques for performance training professionals across the country. The agreement also distinguishes Power Plate against its competition as the only whole-body vibration company, utilizing Athletes' Performance training methodology and protocols.
"Power Plate continues to set the industry standard with their best-in-class products, but even more importantly is the alignment in our core values to offer education with every Power Plate sold," said Mark Verstegen, Founder of Athletes Performance Institutes. "This deep commitment to educate the progressive professionals who dedicate their lives to empowering others is something both our organizations are passionate about."
"As whole-body vibration training reaches a point of mainstream awareness and acceptance, effective education and training for trainers and rehabilitation specialists becomes paramount to the continued evolution of this modality," said Brian Dillman, President of Power Plate North America. "Who better to lead the charge in this critical area than the nation's elite training organization, Athletes' Performance?"
In its exclusive role as Power Plate's official Whole Body Vibration education provider, Athletes' Performance will contribute to Power Plate Academy education sessions across the country.
