Love it!. What a great facility! Highly recommend!
It sneaks up on you.... OK, so the first time my wife went, she came back wanting to buy a plate. She loved it so much she was driving a hour to get there twice a week! So of course I had to try it out too. I was blown away by how fast I got to muscle failure-we we're doing rather simple exercises that (as a guy who thinks that weights are the answer to getting a good workout) I was thinking "this is going to be a breeze." I was SO wrong. Something as simple as lunges were hitting me hard after only like 5 reps! I can't imagine anyone thinking that you are going to get bulked up with this workout, but if you are looking to have an express workout that burns calories and improves muscle tone - I can't think of anything better.
Brentwood Gem. I love this place- my wife had to drag me to it and then I realized it can be a prefect workout for both of us in the same class- the trainer was great and helped both of us with our strengths and weaknesses. We are now regulars and I am an official believer.
Power Plate Studio is my new favorite workout spot in LA. I saw the Fox segment on Power Plate this morning and decided to check it out on a whim today. It was a great workout and much harder than I expected! I am def coming back at least once a week. And you can get the package Lisa mentioned on the show- so cheap and so worth it!
AWESOME WORKOUT!. I had the best session at the Power Plate Studio with Will- it is such a beautiful place and offers a quick yet effective workout! I have been coming here for only one month and I already see the incredible changes in my body, inside and out. I love it, thanks Power Plate and Will!!
this is garbage. you say it works 30 times the normal rate(what was said on fox morning news.) And then shouldn't you be done with your workout in like 3-4 minutes? But yet you are still working out for 30 minutes( FOR 50$ A SESSION!!!!) This is garbage. It doesnt work. It is only for those who are lazy who don't want to put the real time in and are only looking for a "quick fix." As a trainer in a real gym in North Hollywood I cant believe people are so blind to think this is a good thing. Oh btw, the guy who showed this device on tv did NOT get his body From this machine. He trained hard at a real gym for years which is what you are supposed to do. Once again.....GARBAGE!
I just took my first Power Plate Class yesterday with Will and I recommend everyone to try it out. Will was very knowledgable about the machines and made sure that I was doing all of the moves correctly.
For my usual workouts - I do yoga, running, weight lifting for over an hour but at Power Plate I got a full body workout in just 30 minutes. I loved the squats and abs part of the workout....my muscles are still feeling it today.
In addition, you get a nice little massage from the machines at the end of the workout which also has health benefits.
Citysearch Editorial Review. Talk about an out-of-this-world workout. First used by NASA to regenerate the muscle mass that astronauts lost in space due to zero gravity, Power Plates is a body training machine that literally shakes you into shape. Although the machines are starting to show up in full-service gyms, this small studio uses the machines exclusively for each class. So how does it work? Well, you simply step onto the apparatus, which looks a bit like a treadmill with a flat vibrating platform. As the instructor guides you through leg lifts and other basic workout moves, the machine is turned on (at varying levels of vibration, depending on your comfort level) to create instability in the body, forcing it to perform reflexive muscle actions multiple times per second. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body that activate muscle contractions, so you're actually working against a far greater load of gravity in every movement you perform. You'll definitely feel the burn, but at the conclusion of each session is a vibrating "massage" which makes it all worth it.
