If you sit down all day, you might want to take a look at your behind.
A study published in the American Journal of Physiology, found that if you put force on the same part of the body on a regular basis for long periods of time, it increases lipid fat production. Even those with a regular exercise habit are at risk of weight gain if they spend long periods of time sitting down.
What can you do? Move more at regular intervals. AND add Power Plate classes to your routine. They work almost every single muscle fibre in the body and because you stand on the vibrating platform while performing exercises, a sure fire way to switch on your glutes.
A Power Plate session will break down fat cells, improve circulation, flexibility and metabolism and reduce the time you need to spend exercising – a full body workout is a speedy 25 minutes.
Add in a 35 minute lunchtime cycle class a couple of times a week and not only will firm up flabby butt muscles, you'll also break up the sitting down.
If you need something a little more specific to you, we offer one-to-one sessions to help.
Step on the Plate for a tight and toned tush.
