IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The revolutionary Power Plate® workout took top honors from the fitness-conscious Los Angeles community in the recently announced Best of Citysearch awards. Named "Best Los Angeles Workout," the state-of-the-art Power Plate Studio in Brentwood features group classes and personal training on Power Plate® machines featuring Advanced Vibration Technology(TM).

"We at Power Plate are honored to have been selected the Best Workout in L.A. There is no more competitive place in the world for fitness than Southern California, and to receive this award and recognition speaks volumes to our commitment to matching up Power Plate with the best trainers and the best facilities," said Mark de Gorter, president of Power Plate North America. "This winning combination is making the reality of a cutting-edge, 30-minute total-body workout accessible to all."

Power Plate® technology provides an efficient and dynamic total-body workout in less than 30 minutes.
