Shake Off Your Booty With Power Plate

Hold on tight while trying the latest fitness craze: group classes on the Power Plate, a device with a vibrating platform.

Youll tense and release your muscles 30 to 50 times per second to balance on the plate as instructors lead you through strength-training moves like lunges and squats, as well as stretches.

More than 30 private studios and fitness centers across the nation—including select Bally Total Fitness locations—are offering total-body training classes on the unit; a typical session lasts 25 minutes. Find a health club where you can try it.
