Power Plate names John Polley as brand ambassador

Power Plate names John Polley as brand ambassador
June 25, 2021

Power Plate has announced the appointment of Perth-based John Polley, the 2019 Exercise Association of NZ Educator of the Year, as its brand Ambassador.

Poller (known as ‘JP’) brings his vast experience as an award-winning international educator in human movement, keynote speaker, master instructor and mentor, alongside his long history of using Power Plate vibration to help people move better and live better.

He explains “I first encountered Power Plate while I was working as a PT in a gym in Edinburgh in 2007.

“No one in the gym seemed to be using these awesome tools, so I got to know how they worked and started using them in my training sessions. In the 14 years that followed, I’ve become an avid fan of whole-body vibration.

“As both a movement therapist and master educator I have countless success stories using it. This modality of training does some things literally nothing else can, and Power Plate is the gold standard in the whole-body vibration training category.

“To be associated with the Power Plate brand in this way is an honour.”

Polley (pictured above) will be sharing his in-depth knowledge of movement, the myofascial system, tissue health and the mind-body connection through weekly live online videos and other communication channels, helping more people to engage with vibration, especially in the foundation components of performance: preparation and recovery.

He will also contribute to content creation, and work with regional management in communicating the vast array of benefits Power Plate whole body vibration training and percussive therapy can add to all aspects of human movement.

Erica Minter, Power Plate Territory Manager for Australia and New Zealand, explains “we’re excited to welcome JP closer into the Power Plate family. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience with our products.

“His philosophy on movement is closely aligned with the Power Plate mission to bring health and performance benefits to an inclusive range of people of vastly differing levels of conditioning, age and ability.

“JP’s unique communication skills will help us bring this message to a broader audience.”

Power Plate is utilised and accepted by professional and elite sports teams and athletes, celebrities, medical and rehabilitation centres, health and fitness professionals, leading fitness clubs and wellness enthusiasts around the world.

Originally from UK and now living in Perth, Polley changed careers in 2006 to enter the fitness industry and has sinces expanded steadily into other realms of health, wellness and movement.

In the past five years he has developed his highly successful ‘Next Level’ industry mentorships and written and delivered a wide range of education, both online and in person. JP is now a full-time educator, speaker and mentor, working from the guiding Next Level principle that ‘Everything is connected to everything’.

He advocates what he calls a ‘3HD’ approach to helping human beings - an approach using the three human dimensions: mental, emotional and physical.
