Metropol, March 2009:
These days, it seems that we’re all fixating on the rising cost of just about everything! At ChillSpace, owner, Lisa Powers is rising to the challenge by making fitness affordable as well as fun, effective, and rewarding.
And what a location! Situated just above The Sign of the Takahe, with panoramic views of the city, the Southern Alps and up the coast to the Kaikouras, you feel revived just being there!
But ChillSpace goes beyond the workout. It’s a women’s only fitness centre for the mind as well as the body.
Taking care of yourself through proper eating and exercise can get you that feeling of confidence, no matter what age you are or what shape you’re in. This is not news to any of us. It’s simply a matter of getting started, and staying with a program that works for you, and that you enjoy.
Lisa and POWER PLATE trainer, Michelle Vincent, work one-on-one with clients to develop an exercise programme that works for their individual needs and goals.
POWER PLATE provides a rapid workout with amazing results. The vibrations stimulate ALL the muscles in the body to contract at a rate of 30 times per SECOND, thus burning more fat, strengthening and toning every inch of your body, increasing blood circulation, and revving up your metabolism.
A 15-minute vibration workout is equivalent to an hour workout on conventional gym equipment, and is a NO-impact workout, which makes it perfect for most women.
New mums can lose their baby-weight fast, and even women with injuries can still get a good workout tailored to their personal abilities.
If you haven’t tried a POWER PLATE vibration workout, now might be a good time for an FREE Introduction.
Lisa or Michelle will ask you to fill out a questionnaire regarding your personal goals, any injuries or medical problems they need to be aware of, and what type of exercise you’re currently doing, if any. From that, you’re given information on the scientifically proven benefits of POWER PLATE training, and are guided through some poses on the machine. As the body adjusts to the vibration, the introduction workout intensifies slightly, then concludes with some meltingly divine massages!
A typical introduction takes about 45 minutes, and is well worth the experience!
ChillSpace is open daily except Thursdays, 7am till 7pm.
