Players from a Welsh Rugby Union divisional league team are amongst the hundreds of locals who are now making the Power Plate® machine a regular part of their fitness regime at ActiveVibe Studio in Caerphilly, south Wales.
The studio, owned by Mark Denton and Christina Rees, opened in January 2011, offering small group exercise classes on its five Power Plate pro5 machines.
Christina Rees is close friends with the Senghenydd rubgy team’s coach Christian Ferris and gave him the opportunity to try a workout on the Power Plate machine.
“Like many men, Christian was skeptical about the benefits that the Power Plate machine can offer. But when he tried it, he was astonished that it was possible to get such an intense workout in a short space of time. He immediately recognised the benefits it could offer his players, who are always looking for ways to improve performance both on and off the pitch,” says Christina.
In just one year, ActiveVibe has built up a customer base, with 1,000 clients now using its facilities regularly. The Senghenydd rugby players enjoy private training sessions, but the studio also offers a regularly changing timetable of classes including abs blast, whole body tone, legs, bums and tums, high energy cardio, upper body sculpt and fat burn. Classes cost £6 per session, with the option to purchase blocks of sessions from five upwards on a monthly basis.
Christina says when they opened the studio they choose Power Plate machines because of the quality of build and performance the brand offered.
“One year on, it has proved the right decision. These machines are definitely standing the test of time, given their frequent use in a studio environment.”
