If busting some moves on a large vibrating plate sounds like your idea of a good time – you’re in luck.
No, it’s not a new sex craze, it’s the (surprisingly energetic) FLABéLOS power plate session at the Rosebery Rooms.
For those of you who’ve been sitting on the sofa rather than hitting the gym, this large vibrating plate could be the thing to get you back in shape.
Users stand, sit and perform movements on it, activating muscle contractions that enhance the workout. We’re not scientists, but if the hardbodies in the power plate class are anything to go by – we’re in.
This clever machine tones key areas including the stomach, thighs, arms and bum, plus it improves posture and overall body conditioning.
Despite its unassuming appearance, it turns out that just like any other fitness session, power plate is actually a lot of hard work.
You’ll find a mixture of upper and lower body exercises, but performing them on a wobbly platform beats a standard gym floor any day.
Top marks for entertainment and effectiveness – we’ve got a firmer bum already.
