In fact, in many cases, it’s doing the opposite, that is, causing more stress, injury, and harm than good.   Here’s the thing, for over 30 years, the fitness industry has preyed on women’s insecurities.

Our Small Group and Private areas have many different pieces of equipment used to tailor specific workouts for our clients needs. One piece of equipment many people are intrigued with is the Power Plate – so what is it?
