No, that’s not a super-charged scale on steroids. It’s the Power Plate, a vibrating platform, that is taking the celebrity fitness world by storm. Heidi Klum, Clint Eastwood, George Clooney, Sean Combs, and Madonna have been reportedly getting sleek physiques by squatting and pressing atop this vibrating plate. Experts say the Power Plate stimulates the neurological system, improves flexibility, and reduces muscle soreness. Now I’m all for a more effective, less strenuous workout, but I’m rather skeptical about any fitness technique celebs obsess over because usually it’s a bunch of crap or just a product endorsement. Plus, at a price range of about $2,000 to $10,500, I’d rather take my vibrations lying down. Click through for the other fitness crazes that Hollywood embraced only to abandon rather quickly.
