It was falling apart from the moment I opened it. Maybe mine was just defective. Returned

This machine is lightweight and easy to manuever. It has variable speeds and the controls are self explanatory and super easy to use. This is a total relaxing machine! I would highly recommend it to people, just for the relaxatin in my back and neck muscles. If it does any of the other stuff it claims to do - that will just be a bonus.

I would recommend this to a friend who has the same needs as myself. I do not use this machine as an exercise tool but rather an excellent tool for working and stimulating my blood flow so that I'm not cold all the time (I suffer from Hypothyroidism). My circulation has improved greatly and I feel energized when I am done. I do 20-30 minutes a day. The routine buttons never have worked properly for me. The off button was broken from the start. I turn the machine on and off with my toe on the bottom of the machine and then speed it up to what I usually like. It times it for ten minutes at a time. I just start it again until I've reached the desired amount f time I want to spend on it. Before I bought it, others had said the same thing about the glitches but I'm still happy with my machine. My circulation is better.

Overall I am satisfied with this purchase. It arrived quickly (less than 3 weeks) and was very easy to assemble (10 mins). I had been using a similar machine @ *** and didn't want to spend the money to purchase 1 of their machines ($2000), this Sunpentown Vibratone works well... the platform is smaller than the *** and the intensity of the vibration is less, but for less that 1/4 of the cost of the *** I feel I got what I paid for. I think this is a 'starter' machine for me... if I see some results and actually continue to use it regularly, I may consider upgrading to a higher quaility machine, but for now I am happy with this one.

This is one incredible and fantastic piece of exercise equipment! For the price, it is a super buy! It provides a rocking motion, which may seem simple at first, however, after just a few minutes standing on that machine, or sitting on the platform, you will discover it is much more than simple. The rocking motion improves balance, coordination, movement of various body motions. As you stand on the platform, you can rotate and bend your knees, and create "dance" motions which further enhance toning of the muscles. You can also hold and lift hand-weights, and the added rocking motion greatly increases the strengthening of muscles, which you will sense in your calves, your thighs, and buttocks. And this is all on LOW settings, too! I would not recommend setting higher than about 3 or 4 level, not until you become much more adept at using the machine. I would AVOID using higher setting over 5 or 6, at least initially, and not even use the higher settings. There is virtually NO NOISE, and the machine I purchased is very sturdy, very quiet, and feels like a high-quality machine. I have it sitting outside on my covered patio, however, the machine is probably best suited in-doors, as it is a quality piece of equipment. It is quite heavy, and does not "move about", and is very stable. I read that this machine was originally developed by Russians. It is NOT a toy, though you will experience a lot of enjoyment using it, and if you run two cycles, with ea cycle at ten minutes, you will likely be sweating profusely even at low settings of only 4 or 5! The "simple" rocking motion creates FAST TONING of muscles. My machine has level up to 20, far too powerful for me to endure at this time. Most people should start at level one only, and work-up to level two and so forth. You will feel the 'burn', a good sensation that your muscles have had a good work out. If you hold and lift hand-weights of 5#'s each, biceps and triceps as well as calves and thighs will have an incredible work-out! Your muscles will quickly become very toned. I use 15# hand-held weights, and simply lifting those weights above the head is a strongly felt motion/exercise. You can also sit on the platform, though I would recommend using a small pillow. Also, probably best to wear sturdy tennis shoes etc while standing on the platform -- you will notice your feet also get a work-out. As you become more accustomed to the rocking motion, you will quickly advance to being able to move about without holding onto the bars, and will notice greatly improved strength and balance and sense of increased co-ordination -- this is hard to describe. It's a very well-built machine. I plan to use mine 'forever'. Mine was manufactured in Korea .....the quality is superb. Do NOT let children attempt to play on it, it probably requires supervision. For some people: May wish to wear knee 'stabilizers' initially, unless using only at lowest settings. There is no doubt, after using the machine, there is increased oxygenation of blood, and organs; and likely increases the flushing of the 630+ lymph glands throughout the body, too, which improves the entire immune system. You will feel the work-out effects very quickly, and profoundly. And it is so "SIMPLE" and easy to use. :) It's FUN, too!

I have only had it a few days, but so far with a few uses it is helping my back pain. The machine was difficult to put together and some type of instructions on exercises would be extremly helpful. Adding a CD for use would be best so you can watch while you practice and learn different positions to work different muscles. I have high hopes.

I have had chronic health problems for 6 years. As a result, I've lost bone density and muscle strength. I used one of these machines at a chiropractors office 6 times and he suggested I get one for home use. It is wonderful. I have less fat and more lean muscle now and am getting stronger. Since normal exercise is too much for me, this is the solution. Mu husband and son are athletic and they like it too.

I love this machine. My knees, which have been weak and unstable since I had a sports injury about 5 years ago, have been greatly helped after only a few uses. I have a sedentary office job and don't get much activity, and this "workout" has really produced noticeable results. If you're already in shape, I'm not sure you'd notice, but I have been a couch potato for 5 years. It is enervating and easy, and so quiet I can easily watch tv while using it. When my feet really hurt, it's great to just sit on a chair and rest my feet on it while it gives me a great feet/ankle/calf massage. I highly recommend this machine. Very sturdy and very quiet. It is also very heavy, so plan to keep it where you don't have to move it much.

Great machine. Easy to assemble and use. Quiet enough to use while watching TV!

I have no complaints. I do suggest finding a machine to air it up with instead of the hand pump or you will be there all day.

I saw this machine on another site for a lot more money but I was intrigued by its compact size. This machine is a lot more powerful then you might expect. I am very heavy and I have leg circulation issues so I wasn't sure this machine would handle me. It actually gives my legs a GREAT workout and I can feel an improvement even only one week later. I did not buy this machine for weight loss, just strictly for help with my legs and I am very happy with it.

We have the Sunny Crazy Fit Massage machine (WBV vibration) in our office for our clients to use for recovery from Incontinence, Peripheral Neuropathy and other circulation issues. It has been so successful, that we continue to order it for our clients. Our last, being a 90 year old woman who absolutely hated her first two times on the machine. After seeing results after only one week, she asked us to order her a machine. Her balance is much improved; as is her leg strength. And, stronger legs, mean less falls. We have helped 6 of our clients purchase this machine now because it is priced right. They would not have paid more, unfortunately. James S., Neuropathist/Director Chico Holistic Healthcare

I would love to give a 5 star rating but even after contacting the company, the BMI feature doesn't work. Not sure what is wrong. I still love the machine, though. I have used it three times a day, for 20 min. at a time and my legs are definitely toned! This is able to strengthen muscles. I would suggest going slowly, though. I exercised before I got the machine so I was in pretty good shape. Work up to 3 times a day and vary the workout programs.

I found the machine easy to assemble and both my wife and I are enjoying the product. I play racquettball and pickleball and my legs usually feel tight from the playing. I come home and get on the machine and ten minutes later my legs feel a lot better. My wife uses it more then I do. I seen her sit on it, stand on it and place both hands on it. I see it making a difference on how she looks. She appears more relax. We have only had it for a short time and from what I see I would definately recommend it as part of your daily routine of exercise.

I was introduced to this machine by my nutritional counselor. He is also a world record holder in curls, so his office has an array of machines that he uses and recommends for clients. I used his Power Plate, I believe that was what he called it, and he said the cost was $1599! He said there is a model without the bars for $599, which might speed up building the core, as there is a natural reaction to holding onto the bars for support, even when it is not necessary to do so. The workout is effortless, quiet, and you can feel the areas you are strengthening. And you can move your body to different positions and immediately feel where you are getting the workout. An added bonus....it also helps to clear your intestinal tract! TMI....but TRUE!

My hips and and joints do not hurt anymore. I have noticed my cardio work out are easier, which seems that I am gaining muscle. I am warn out after using it. The programs are great on it. I sleep better after a couple of sessions. I am probably going to get on of these for my grandmother. I think I will eventually start to loose weight after gaining more muscle tone from it. I like to do planks on it (the most challenging planks of my life). My back even feels better too! I have done up at 8 sessions at a time without experiencing too much discomfort though I was a little still in the morning (nothing stretching/yoga won't cure). I turned to this machine because I have severe exercise(cardio)-induced asthma and a hypothyroid condition. I love to exercise, but I was either too tired from the thyroid or going to have an asthma attack from the mere act of exercising. This machine helps avoid all of my problems and has improved my quality of life! I may purchase an expensive souped up version in a couple of years.

A friend said to get one of these and I that I could find an inexpensive version of gym one for the home on Overstock. It was easy to find and I feel the difference after using the machine. It is very easy. It has 3 built in speeds and you just stand on it using 1 of the 3 setting and after about 10 minutes you are finished. It has toned my body and I believe made a difference in how I feel about myself.

I purchased this item about a month ago because of the product reviews and my health problems making it difficult for me to do many types of exercise. I have used it daily since I received it. I cannot say that I have noticed any difference to my body composition, but I do feel better after I spend 10 minutes on the machine so I continue to use it. Yesterday, the on/off button on the back of the machine stopped working (leaving it in the on position). I didn't expect something like this to happen so quickly, so I am very disappointed. Nonetheless, I can still use it so I will. The arms have never been very sturdy and shake when the machine is operating. I believe these have loosened over the last month as well. Overall, I believe it comes down to personal preference and your expectations of the machine. If I had to do it all over again, I don't know if I would purchase it but I will continue using it until it stops working completely.

This machine is not comfortable to use without additional padding ( a towel ). The padding included didn't cut it. The swiver disc is not comfortable under you either. I don't bother with it. I'm not sold on the benefits, but I am going to use it for now.

THIS MACHINE IS GREAT. IT IS COMPACT SO DOEN'T TAKE UP MUCH FLOOR SPACE. IT HAS 2 WHEELS ON THE BOTTOM SO YOU CAN MOVE IT AROUND EASILY (LIKE A WHEEL BARREL) QUALITY IS EXCELLENT AND AFFORDABLY PRICED. I DON'T USE IT FOR WEIGHT LOSS BUT INSTEAD --ACHES AND PAINS-IT REALLY GETS THE BLOOD FLOWING BACK INTO YOUR JOINTS AND MUSCLES AND YOUR PAIN GOES AWAY

I have used much more expensive, elaborate vibration machines at the gym, and this portable home-sized model is just as good. It is a real bargain at the price. I like the fact that it weighs only 44 lb and stands not too high and I can move it under a table or bed in an apartment. The action of the pedal feels much like the ones in the gym, and you can program it, use different speeds. It is quiet and doesn't shake the floor. I am very happy that I got it.
