Tasty Tuesdays with Total Greek

August has come and we’re feeling summery (even if the weather doesn’t agree) and in the mood for tasty and healthy treats. That’s why we’ve teamed up with our friends at Total Greek Yoghurt to bring you Tasty Tuesdays!

Yes you all know, Total Greek is that creamy, thick and delicious yoghurt that’s low in fat, 100% natural and additive and preservative free. Best of all, it can be used as that special ingredient to complement a plethora foods.

This month, we’ll be giving away three Total Greek goody bags every week, containing a mixture of their fruit and honey split pots for you to enjoy (they also promise to be the perfect post-exercise treat).

What’s the catch? Well every Tuesday we’d like you to give us inspiration by submitting your healthiest and tastiest smoothie recipes on our Facebook page. We’ll pick the top three suggestions and if yours is one of the three winners, we’ll send you your prize.

Don’t say we’re not good to you, Happy Tasty Tuesdays everyone!

Ride the Waves Thanks to Power Plate

You know how much we love to treat our loyal Power Plate followers, and this month is no different. During March we are going to be giving away two vouchers for 2 x 2 hour surf lessons at the Escape Surf School in Cornwall. Amazing, right?

As spring approaches, we think it’s the perfect time to get outdoors to enjoy our amazing British landscape, and take on a new sport such as surfing. The talented trainers at Escape can teach you everything you need to know from basic water safety to how to stand on your board and ride the waves like a pro!

This leading surf school uses Power Plate machines to help train their elite surfers and as a result, the head Coach Mike Young has helped raise the level of British surfing. In fact he is the head coach for the junior British team.

Power Plate training is a great way of building core strength and balance so for all of you who enjoy regular vibration training, you will notice how the disciplines of surfing can be emulated on the Power Plate machines – so in theory…you should all be able to take to the waves with confidence.

So make sure you check out our Power Plate Facebook page on Monday for your chance to enter this ‘gnarly’ competition, dudes! :)

Good Luck


12 Days of Christmas…

The official Christmas countdown began last week and now with only 17 more sleeps to go, it’s a great time to remind anyone who’s not already following us on Facebook and twitter that you can join in the festive fun with us there, during our “12 days of Christmas” guide and giveaway.

Since December 1st we have been giving away little gifts and sharing our helpful time-saving advice on the Power Plate Facebook page to thank our loyal digital community for their support during 2011. We are currently on day five (because we don’t count the weekends since we are too busy having fun… and doing a Power Plate session or two) and today we have a nifty little time-saving tip designed to help avoid that frustrating moment when you realise that there is sticky tape stuck everywhere but where you need it to go. Our secret… giftelopes! We think that these are just the most amazing invention and they definitely make wrapping presents fun and easy. See…it’s a revolution :)

So make sure you keep coming back to see what we have on offer. We want you to spread the Christmas spirit so please feel free to share your time-saving tips on our Facebook page and Twitter pages as well. You never know how valuable they might be!
