Power Plate training is one of those fitness crazes that is beginning to sweep the nation right now. Originally making headlines as the workout regimen of choice for celebrities like Mark Wahlberg, Courtney Cox, Cindy Crawford, Joanna Krupa, Clint Eastwood, as well as professional sports franchises like the Broncos, Raiders, Dodgers, Bears and Steelers, these high-intensity, low-duration workouts are quickly becoming prevalent across Southern California, hinting at a massive potential for ultimate expansion across the United States. And PLATEFIT is one franchise that is leading the way.

The founder of PLATEFIT, Rachel Blumberg ran a private Power Plate studio in West Hollywood for ten years before opening her doors to the public with the opening of the first PLATEFIT location. Now, only a few short years later, PLATEFIT has just had the grand opening of its fourth Los Angeles studio location, with no signs of slowing down in sight.

PLATEFIT classes are intense, 27-minute interval training workouts done on individual Power Plates with guided instruction, music, and an experience advertised as being “built for efficiency.” Despite the short duration of the workout, the effects are profound: PLATEFIT classes are tailor-made for strengthening and detoxifying the body. The steady vibration that emanates from the plate is not only designed to drain the lymphatic system but also to reduce inflammation, boost recovery speed, invigorate cells, and increase circulation. The vibration induces the body to generate more serotonin and HGH while reducing cortisol. It is an exhausting but incredibly beneficial experience.

The Power Plate really is an incredible development in fitness technology. Simply by doing standard exercise routines on the Plate, an individual can see a multitude of additional benefits. But classes like the ones offered at PLATEFIT are designed incredibly specifically, with each movement and pose chosen to maximize the benefits of the Plate. Given the added benefits of the technology and the increasing popularity of the classes, it seems all too likely that PLATEFIT or another Power Plate class like it will be the hot workout trend in your area in the not-too-distant future…if it isn’t already.

PLATEFIT classes are offered from 9AM to 8PM. New clients can try unlimited classes for 2 weeks for $49. The new Sycamore Ave location opened in early October.  Platefit is located in Brentwood, Studio City, West Hollywood, Los Angeles (Sycamore).  For further information, visit PLATEFIT.CO.
