FORA works with Power Plate to raise awareness of sitting disease through movement and vibration

Supplier: Power Plate

More Power Plate details
FORA, a flexible workplace for professionals, has partnered with Power Plate o introduce movement and vibration into its offering
With office workers spending over eight hours per day sitting at their desks, and one in six affected by mental health issues every year, it is no surprise that businesses are looking to introduce ‘wellness’ to the workplace.

FORA offers small businesses and freelancers a professional and flexible workspace with access to all the basics, plus a range of other benefits such as engaging content, networking events and the provision of wellness.

As part of FORA’s workplace wellbeing initiative, they are exploring how to introduce movement and vibration into their offering, with global health and wellness supplier Power Plate.

Sitting disease, a relatively new health phenomenon making its way into the spotlight, is caused by sedentary behaviour, proven to shorten life spans, cause hormonal change and increase the risk of development chronic conditions such as;

- Anxiety
- High blood pressure
- Cardiovascular disease
- Kidney stones
- Depression
- Diabetes
- Obesity

The key is to move more, more often, and by introducing Power Plate into their facilities, FORA has enabled employees to instantly benefit from movement and vibration, regardless of their current health or fitness level.

Stephen Powell, director of UK Education at Power Plate said “Sitting disease is a relatively new health phenomenon making its way into the spotlight. It is caused by sedentary behaviour, proven to shorten life spans, cause hormonal change and increase the risk of developing chronic conditions such as anxiety, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, depression and more. The key to beating this so-called disease is to move more, more often.”

Power Plate FITSTOP is designed to refresh employees during the working day


Power Plate FITSTOP is designed to refresh employees during the working day, targeting the negative effects of sedentary behaviour (prolonged sitting).

Typically placed in areas that employees use regularly as part of their daily routine, FITSTOP is a 3 minute programme that has been created to positively impact workplace inactivity, whilst remaining in usual office attire.
Power Plate FITSTOP programme is ideal for employees looking to;

- Release tension
- Promote better posture
- Reduce neck and back pain
- Relieve tiredness
- Reduce stress
- Improve circulation

This new initiative at FORA has been trialled across three sites in London so far including Soho, Old Street and Borough.
