Kudos to Power Plate!

The boy asked me today, “Have you lost weight?” 
Me: “Hmm…oh yeah, I think so! I have no idea how though, I haven’t been cutting back on food or anything like that.” 
The boy: “Well, you look great and you look more toned too… It must be your power plate classes!” 
Me: “Ah yes! The power plate classes! It must be! :D” 
For those who read my blog, I wrote an earlier entry about a month back on ‘vowing’ to exercise more and attend power plate classes regularly. I must say that I’ve been good and been going about twice weekly, religiously for the past month. The thing about these classes are that they make me feel so good – I feel a lot more energised and less lethargic, that attending the classes and exercising is hardly a chore anymore. I actually find myself looking forward to attend classes. 
Of course, now that the boy has complimented me, it makes it an even bigger plus to go for them. I must say, that the results from these power plate classes are showing really fast. Scrutinising myself, I’m noticing some abdominal muscles (gasp!!) and toner, leaner arms. All that achieved in a short span of twice weekly 40 minute classes in a month. Yipee!! I’ve finally found an exercise to do that is rather painless and yet shows results. 
For those of you rolling your eyes already, stop. Haha. I have to defend myself that I have never been the exercising sort, as much as I like to try. It takes every ounce of effort to get me out of the house for a run, yoga has been a little too boring, pilates a little too difficult, and team sports is out of the question. You get the idea. So you see why I’m all excited now? 
I’m honestly so amazed by power plate that I feel compelled to blog and tell everyone about it. I did a quick research online and this is what I found:
Miss Kylie “Hot Body” Minogue does it too! Apparently, so does Madonna, Cindy Crawford and Courtney Cox – all the major hot bod women. 
“The power plate achieves significant results with minimum effort.” I can’t say ‘yes’ to that enough. A normal 40 minute power plate session is equivalent to you slogging out at the gym for 2.5hours!
Style magazine penned it as an ‘effort-free tip to achieve a sexier body’.
I’m really looking forward to the ‘reduced cellulite’. I’ll update you guys on whether that happens. 😉
The most awesome bit of information that I found:
Yay! We all love a good sale and 30% off the 2nd package is definitely something to cheer about! I found out that you can purchase the both packages with another friend, and split the cost in two. How perfect. If you’re wondering how much classes are, here you go:
These prices are from the studio that I go to, Croyez Studio (pronounced as ‘Krwah-Yay’). It is the largest power plate studio in Asia and they’ve got two branches, at Purvis St and Dempsey Road. 
Here are pictures of the studios:

Each class involves you doing different forms of exercises on the machine, led by an instructor. We usually start with a 5 minute warm-up stretch, followed by an intensive 25 minute workout and we end off with a 10 minute high-frequency ‘power massage’ on the machine. That’s my favourite part of the workout. I always imagine my fats and cellulite vibrating and melting away whilst I’m at it. Haha. My instructor told me that Croyez is the only studio in Singapore that provides these high-frequency massages after each workout session. I can’t imagine doing power plate classes without it! 
So, I think I’ve been raving enough about these power plate classes. You guys have got to try it. For those of you interested to find out more, you can go to www.croyezstudio.com  or dial 6474 4136.
Don’t forget about the Christmas sale! It ends December this year. 🙂 

It’s Power Plate Time!

I’m happy to say, that filming for ‘A Song To Remember’ has wrapped! Wheeee!! It’s been good fun on set, but I’m glad to have my freedom and life back. No more early wake up calls! 😀 Here’s a shot of me on set. (Thanks Eelyn for the shot! I’m loving the ‘artsy-fartsy’ feel of it.)

The first thing that I’m going to do now that I have more time, is to get back to Power Plate classes. For those who are wondering what Power Plate is, it’s basically a machine (as shown in the photo below) that vibrates and helps the body work 5 times harder and reduces a 2.5hours workout to a mere 25 minutes. 
I’ve attended about 6 classes of about 40 minutes per class, and I’ve been blown away by the results. I’ve never seen my body tone up so quick. Prior to trying out Power Plate classes, I’ve done yoga, pilates mat class and all sorts of other things, but I’ve never seen any results that quick. It’s supposed to reduce cellulite too. 
I was actually so convinced at the first trial lesson that I signed up for a package right away. (I’m usually skeptical and seldom sign up for packages anywhere. It’s very hard to earn my money. Haha) 
So yes, I can’t wait to get back to classes. I’ll probably try and squeeze twice weekly classes from now. Say hello to the soon-to-be lean mean machine!! *rawhhhhhh*
Here’s the studio that I workout at for those who are interested:

Have a great week ahead everyone!
