This was my first power plate class ever and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but this was a quick and easy class that tickled my insides. It was fun and high energy, and I wish it had lasted twice as long. The class consisted of basic dance cardio moves on the power plate and then ended with ab work lying down on the plate. Because the plates were limited in size, you have to work to balance on your machine, but other than that, it didn’t feel harder than a normal class because of the vibrating plates. Though I hope my muscles worked harder and I just didn’t notice. My friend took a Bootcamp Fit class and thought it was quite difficult so I’m assuming the difficulty varies depending on the type of class you take. The machines also turn off every 9 minutes, so you just have to keep hitting the on button to keep it running. It feels like you’re the only one vibrating because you can’t see anyone else moving, but in reality, everyone else is also vibrating.
The studio is new and clean, and the staff is very friendly. It is a tiny room though, so classes fill up but street parking was surprisingly easy to find.
