The Power Plate experience in a nutshell
Friday 30 April 2010
After hearing all the hype about the Power Plate machine, your Closer Online team decided that we simply had to check it out ourselves.
And we can now join the likes of Charlotte Church and Gemma Arterton who have sworn by the toning powers of this vibrating device.
Indeed, the Plate made us feel more toned and rejuvenated our bodies after a half an hour session in Harrods Power Plate studio. (Harrods, ooh-er!)
By doing different exercises on the machine’s vibrating platform for up to 60 seconds at a time, specific areas of the body can be targeted.
Whilst sit ups work the abs, step ups tone your legs and bum, and a side plank, whether you love ’em or can’t handle them, gets rid of love handles.
The Plate means your muscles contract far more than they do otherwise which speeds up the sculpting process.
Plus, it improves strength, flexibility and reduces cellulite. You might want to team working out with Power Plate with Thalgo Slim & Sculpt Expert homecare products and salon treatments.
Like the Power Plate machine, these products allow you to zone in on the different parts of your body when tackling cellulite.
After the workout, you’re rewarded with a massage on the Plate which involves an increase in the number of vibrations. If you’re anything like us (massage fiends), this will be your favourite part of the experience, and is well deserved too!
We're feeling a bit achey today, but we're one step closer to achieving the ultimate bikini bod.
