Summit Fitness continues expansion with Power Plate distributorship

Summit Fitness continues expansion with Power Plate distributorship
May 20, 2014

Rapidly expanding fitness equipment suppliers Summit Fitness have secured the rights to distribute Power Plate vibration/acceleration training products in Australia.

Having announced their acquisition of distribution arrangements for Star Trac fitness equipment and Woodway treadmills in April, Sydney-based Summit Fitness has now established a Power Plate Australia business unit, headed by Dean Harding, a leading expert in vibration training.

Harding started with Power Plate more than seven years ago in UK and has been a lead educator and innovator for Power Plate in Australia over the last five years. During this time he has owned and operated his own training studio, been involved in mentorship programs with some of the world's leading fitness educators, personally lead numerous courses educating hundreds of trainers and coaches, been instrumental in developing a greater understanding of Power Plate technology and positively affected thousands of people's lives through the integration of Power Plate equipment and training methods.

In an email to industry stakeholders it has been explained that “Summit Fitness will be guiding Power Plate to new level of product exposure and training in Australia.”

Power Plate machines use the principles of Acceleration Training to stimulate the body's natural response to vibration. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, enhancing overall performance in sessions as short as 15 minutes a day, three times a week.

Founded in 2005, Summit Fitness is ambitious to join the ranks of Australia’s leading fitness industry equipment suppliers.

Brisbane-based QPEC (Quality Products, Education and Conditioning) was the previous Power Plate distributor in Australia, having had the agency since November 2012. QPEC’s acquisition of the distributorship coincided with PPI Acquisitions buying the global business of Power Plate International and becoming the sole source for the complete line of Power Plate branded products world-wide.
