Francesca Marigonda from Vibe & Tone in Paddington looks sweet but don’t be fooled by that smile. I rocked up to one of her Power Plate classes last week thinking to myself ”this is sissy-housewife stuff” and left 33 minutes later barely able to walk down the stairs. I think I actually squealed at one point as she made me do the last 30 seconds of a static hold lunge on the vibrating plate and then I lost all sense of masculine pride when the ladies around me began to out-crunch, out-curl and out-lift me. Next time, if they know what’s good for them (or want to stay looking young – you know who you are) they will let me win… well you cant really “win” but i still intend on doing so!! If you are bored with the gym, or just want to try something really, really cool then check out her website at www.vibeandtone.com.au and come do a class with me. If you don’t live in Sydney then google your closest power plate studio. As for you Miss Francesca and the lovely ladies…. I’ll see you Friday – bring it on !
