I Tried 30 Different Workouts In 30 Days, And This Is What Happened

I Tried 30 Different Workouts In 30 Days, And This Is What Happened

Two Power Plate classes at West Hollywood studio, Platefit, were mentioned on The Zoe Report in an article titled "I Tried 30 Different Workouts In 30 Days, And This Is What Happened". Below is the text from both class reviews:

Platefit Power Plate
Studio: PlateFit Class: PlateFit Power Plate
About the workout: In a PlateFit class, you work out on a vibrating plate, which forces muscle contractions between 30 to 50 times per second. That means in just 30 seconds, you get over 900 muscle contractions. The workout is just 27 minutes long. According to the studio, when going three times a week, most clients start seeing results in six to twelve sessions. "You can expect to feel leaner and tighter and experience a reduction in cellulite," says founder Rachel Blumberg.
My experience: I love a quickie workout. This one was tough, and I have to admit checking the clock to see how much longer I had to survive. The machine is weird at first but feels so good—it's like getting a massage while working out.
Tip from the studio: You can buy a Personal Power Plate to use at home if you don't live near a studio.

PlateFit CelluliteFit
Studio: PlateFit Class: CelluliteFit
About the workout: Says PlateFit founder Rachel Blumberg, "Using whole-body vibration technology, people are able to lose more weight, reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve their lives in a fraction of the time of working out without the Power Plate."
My experience: Cellulite is a genetic inevitability for me. I already have it, but I know that my current wobbly patches are only going to expand with time. So, I'll try anything that purports to reduce its appearance, even if it is generally acknowledged that this can't be accomplished. This class was basically as therapeutic as a massage—if you're looking to relax and do some good for your body in a cost-and-time-effective manner, I'd highly recommend giving it a try.
Tip from the studio: You can buy a Personal Power Plate to use at home if you don't live near a studio.
