This vibrating fitness machine is not only a good way to lose weight and inches, it is relaxing, too.

There are things out there to work your abs that are so expensive and this does the perfect job without having to spend so much money. I feel my abs worked in the right places. As long as u don't use your shoulders to pull the weight back up. but I have already suggested it to my friends

I was surprised at how this machine really works I didn't change anything that was new and I lost weight and am starting to get more toned and since I'm disabled and can't exercise this is perfect for me

I was hesitant to buy this--I mean, what the hey??? But I read a ton of research on whole body massage for weight loss, muscle strengthening, and even building stronger bone. So I bought it--and I LOVE IT. I use it twice daily--10 minutes each time--mainly for the hips, thighs, waist areas. You can do various positions to get the full effect on your arms or legs. Can't believe it really works!!

I love this machine - just feel better after using it first thing in the morning. Seems to help with my energy level; been using it for about two weeks and no significiance change in weight however my muscle index has improved according to my doctor. I would recommend it just for it making one feel better.

I needed an exercise ball suitable for my 5'1" size, and this one was perfect. It was easily inflated yet strong enough to support my weight. A nice addition to my exercise props. Overstock has always met my expectations for merchandise I have ordered.

I bought this machine for all the reasons it was advertised, balance, circulation and weight loss. I haven't lost any weight; I've had the machine close to 1 month. I've not noticed that my balance has improved. The machine does a great job at reviving my circulation after 10 minutes on the machine parts of my body are tingling and alive with blood flow they normally would not get. I have gotten off the machine sweating a couple of time when I added leg lifts and squats. DO NOT CLOSE BEND YOUR KNEES AND LIEN BACK SLIGHTLY. THIS IS VERY RELAXING. I ACTUALLY FEEL ASLEEP AND CRASHED BACKWARDS WITH THE MACHINE COMING DOWN ON TOP OF ME. DO NOT USE THE MACHINE WHEN YOURE TIRED!

My back has been hurting for a few weeks. Docs said it is due to tension and sitting at a desk for 15 hours a day. I am a big fan of acupuncture and saw this "Chi" machine and had to try it. I was not expecting it to do anything other than relax me, but wow, the tightness and tension in my back left immediately and I got the first good night's sleep last night than I have had in months!!! I will say the other reviewers comments about the ankle positioning being a little too close is spot on. I would say if you lay down straight and your ankles do not sit within 1 inch naturally of each other, depending on how far apart they are will depend on how comfortable this machine is for you to use. I'm 100lbs over weight so mine are probably 3" apart when I lay down, so it's a bit tight for me to make my legs go so close but eventually I got used to it. I plan to use the machine daily.

Whole body vibration therapy was something I first discovered in spas in Los Angeles. I later found that Access Hollywood, Extra, The Doctors and Tyra Banks all have segments on the topic that you can view on YouTube. I became intrigued with trying this kind of therapy after suffering from immediate and drastic and very painful digestion issues (SIBO or Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth) after laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis. That led to symptoms of malabsorption, causing extreme fatigue, muscle joint pain and weight gain. Already having seen an OBGYN, GI doc (for diagnosis and antibiotic treatment) and a ND (giving me strict diet and supplement plan), I was on the search for additional natural solutions to bring a solution, since I was still suffering a year after surgery. I knew exercise had to help, but I was in too much pain to move much at all, let alone get myself to a spa every day for a ten-minute treatment. (Getting ready for work or going to the grocery store or doing laundry or cooking was so difficult; I felt disabled.) I needed something in my home, that I could use daily. When researching affordable mini home machines, this was the most compact and the lowest price one I found (due to Overstocks competitive pricing and wonderful $2.95 shipping fee for all items). I wanted something small that I could put by the couch (to lean on if I needed to) and TV when using and put away in a closet when company came. This machine is no joke. It is a wonderful quality machine. (I believe it is from Japan.) It is very sturdy and the electronic panel is divine. Just lean over to power it on, program it (I like the auto-program #2 the best), step on (bare feet with socks is best), and press start. Ten minutes a day is all that is recommended. I have also heard that 20 minutes a day is common, but no more. The first time I used it, I felt relaxed and jolted at the same time. The forced circulation from the vibrations makes you feel giddy or euphoric and energized. The plate that you stand on moves back and forth, left to right, right to left, kind of like a skateboarder would, but in tiny, tiny fast movements. (You cannot see the plate swaying.) It is a really amazing product. My energy, mood and digestion greatly improved in just a few days. My skin even looks newer and more toned. I am even losing weight (the most important reason I wanted this machine, because I am vain and was extremely unhappy with the post-surgery weight gain). My mobility (or my ability to walk with less rigid movement) and joint pain has vastly improved. I still have digestive issues, but if I feel uncomfortable after eating and get on the machine an hour or so after eating, it greatly reduces pain and bloating and lackluster energy from digestive problems. I have had this machine for half a month and it is improving my health and therefore my quality of life. I highly, highly, hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiighly recommend. Your health is your wealth and this machine will not disappoint. The Benefits of Whole Body Vibration Machine: (1) INCREASES CIRCULATION (for good health) (2) INCREASES LYMPHATIC CIRCULATION (for detox) (3) TONES ALL MUSCLE GROUPS (to burn fat) (4) INCREASES METABOLISM (to burn fat) (5) RAISES ENERGY levels (helps chronic fatigue) (6) REDUCES MUSCLE AND JOINT PAIN (helps arthritis and fibromyalgia) (7) INCREASES BONE DENSITY (helps osteoporosis) (8) IMPROVES NERVOUS SYSTEM functions (9) IMPROVES ENDOCRINE SYSTEM (increases serotonin, reduces cortisol, increases testosterone) (10) IMPROVES GI SYSTEM (helps digestion, colonic movement, IBS)

I received my Sunny Crazy Fit vibration plate Y.08 yesterday, It took me about an hour with the help of my 2 girls to put it together. Its not that complicated to assemble . The look is little different: no name on the support tube as the picture shown on the website! But its on the front of the base plate . We all had fun trying it, I love it. I m giving it 5 stars for the affordability, the quick delivery and the ease of use . I will have another review update about the benefits on my health and weight. Thank you OVERSTOCK

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 love my new vibration machine. I'm not sure if I have lost any weight yet but i''m not as sore after working out at the gym.

I saw a more expensive version and thought I would try this cheaper version to test for myself to see if the claims/benefits are actually true. I will purchase a more expensive version ($1500-3000) if I do see results. I am using 2-3 times a day for weight loss and am drinking 1/2-1 gallon of water per day. I will keep you posted if I experience weight loss. I will tell you that this version is very cheaply built and the rails and display unit do not offer much support. It would not withstand any weight being placed on it. Also, the rails are so narrow that a larger person would not fit between them. I have only used for two full days, but my calves are sore. I can tell it is working the muscles. I researched quite a bit about the whole vibration claims and it sounds logical that continued use would reap benefits. My husband fears the whole vibration concept could harm a human body, but I have found no claims of people stating that. It does make my heart feel funny on the higher settings so I try to focus on abdominal and leg areas.

Had this for a month now and have no regrets on this purchase---Use it every day and like how it makes you feel---Did not lose weight but can see a body change and maybe the weight loss will happen later??? Also use it for my poor circulation--it has helped and improved my balance as well...Glad I bought it !!!!!

I needed a small and light-weight gadget for excercise at home. This is perfect for that.

I am not sure if the machine is free of defects since it makes a rattling noise when I stand on it distributing my weight evenly, but if I put more weight on my left leg, then the noise subsides and the machine runs quietly. Of course I can't do this for more than a minute or two, so I basically do my routine with lots of rattling noise. Other than that I think the machine is very sturdy, good quality. As for the results, well I've had it for 20 days now, I've used it twice a day for intervals of 10 minutes and sometimes 20 minutes each time and while I can't see very visible results as of yet, I can notice some toning in the legs, thighs and perhaps gluts, don't know it's hard to say. I have a little bit of cellulite in my gluts, what most people would say it's nothing... but it's there, and I still don't see much of a difference. I am 35 y/o, 5' 6'' and weigh 125lbs, have a fairly toned complexion, but the signs of aging are showing up specially in thighs, gluts and belly. I'd like to know if other people that have been using the Crazy Fit for longer than me, what kind of results they are getting. I did take a picture of myself the day I started and I'm planning on taking a new one after day 30, and so on. It's also very helpful when writing a review so state your age, height and weight so people can relate to your results more realistically. Thank you Overstock!

This is really one of the best buys I've made in a long time. It relieves muscle pain, improves tone, and de-stresses. I was really skeptical & couldn't imagine how it would live up to what I've been reading online, especially since this is one of the cheapest models available. It's well made and I'm am so pleased. I had problems with chronic muscle pain and this is the only thing that has helped. It's so refreshing to use. Leaves me feeling clear-headed afterward as well. I don't know if it helps with weight loss, but for toning, it's incredible.

For the price, it does what it needs to but the quality is not that great. The middle is hollow with a piece of plastic over the hole (the blue logo). If you step directly on the logo, it will depress and you won't be able to get it out. For reference, I'm about 165lbs so it's not like I was putting excessive weight on the thing. This definitely is an "economy" model, so if you just need a cheap board, it will be fine.

You can even lose weight and improve fitness almost automatically by swapping your desk chair for an exercise ball, as the moving and readjusting you will do during the day burn extra calories.
