Working Out Like an Astronaut in South Beach

Description

“Sorry, can’t make it this afternoon. Doing this astronaut two-a-days thing.”

… is, oddly, something you can say now.

Shake it off at VibeClass Fitness, a new place in South Beach that specializes in 30-minute boot-camp-y classes that take place on a bunch of vibrating plates, now open. Here’s the slideshow.

The concept’s been around for a bit, but consider this a new take on the NASA-backed science behind it. See, turns out, standing on a lightly vibrating plate helps astronauts retain bone density and muscle when they’re dealing with a little thing called “zero gravity” up in space. And that’s all they focus on here.

For starters, there are 10 stations, most of them equipped with a vibrating plate and assorted implements meant to make things… uncomfortable (kettlebells, bands, medicine balls…). You’ve got three rounds at each station, each one made considerably harder by a personal trainer who’s there to make sure you’re sweating enough.

Oh, and throughout your workout, you’ll be wearing a heart rate monitor that’s reading all your vitals and displaying them on a big screen at the front of the room.

No pressure or anything.
