It’s all change for the better at Good Vibes. We’ve put a rocket into the Power Plate classes. Metabolic resistance training and the Power Plate are the two giants of results based fitness training and we’ve combined them both into one short 25 minute class.

What is it?

The Metabolic Effect = The elevated Fat-Calorie Afterburn Effect of exercising using a HIGH INTENSITY .

What happens in a class?

After a dynamic warm up to open and mobilise the body, the class will be instructed through sets ofWhole Body Exercises performed back to back. You work to your fitness levels and can step it up or down as you wish.

You’ll end with a high intensity exercise for a short burst to finish the session on a metabolic high.

Available as an advanced class in the mornings and evenings, expect to sweat! A less sweaty but power packed class throughout the rest of the timetable.

Get ready to see a noticeable change in your body shape and fitness levels in 3 classes a week over 4 weeks.

The science

Exercise at the correct intensity elevates stress hormones like adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol.  This leads to a build up of lactic acid which signal the release of two fat-burning hormones TESTOSTERONE AND HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE (HGH).

The combination of all these hormones drives the calorific afterburn created by Exercise Post Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) and they ensure calories burned come from fat.

EPOC has been shown to last up to 48 hours after the workout!

Traditional 1 hour classes of ‘aerobic’ exercise does not impact the above hormones in the same way.

If you haven't tried it our first class is free. If you have and are a regular refer a friend and when they go on to buy, both of you get a free class added!
