I have reduced my weight approx. five pounds in three weeks. I feel so much better and the best thing the machine does all the work.

Makes me feel really good. I am not sure if it will make me lose weight but my cousin swears by it

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.

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 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.

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 have tried it. The swivel disc does nothing, I believe it's meant to turn but with ones weight on it ( I am not a large person) it doesn't swivel, it more or less rocks so your upper body does move a little. I am really not sure about it benefits. I have used it a few times and don't know what I should expect. If anyone else has comments I am certainly interested.

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!

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.

This is a weighted hula hoop, however, it is weighted all around, not just in areas, so trying to keep the hula hoop up is very difficult. You have to be really talented to be able to use this. It is good quality.

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 saw multiple items included in the description of the product, a balance board. The image was misleading and the description was inaccurate. I am sorry that I bought it. Not only is it chinsy, it is doesn't balance right. I think the pivot point is too thin. It slides on my floor. It really isn't a board but a piece of plastic that I holds my weight but looks like it won't last long. Definitely not worth the money.

As so many said, takes a bit of time to get it to full size. But...if you fill it with the supplied pump (mine worked perfectly, no complaints!), let it sit for a few hours, put in more air, let it sit and continue to do that it will fill to it's full size within a day or so (you have to let the rubber stretch) and it's as big as they claim! We took our time and did it over two days filling it until it was taut and then letting it sit for hours. It comes with an excellent wall hanging chart, well illustrated. I'm fairly heavy and it holds my weight well and doesn't feel like it will burst. It's definitely a good value.

My husband and I had doubts about the exercise ball and our weight but we followed the sizing chart and it has turned out wonderful. We recieved our ball within a week and nervously tried it. The exercise ball is a great work out tool and very reliable too!

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 YOU’RE TIRED!

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

Great jump rope, its very difficult to find a good jump rope with enough weight. This accomplishes what I was looking for.

Solid piece of plastic - will bear the weight no problem - the height is higher than is safe (IMHO) and the non skid surface slides readily with sneakers and with bare feet. The slippery nature of the surface causes it to be a safety problem. I used a few pair of sneakers - running & cross training - and still slipped. Fix the surface and it will be much better.

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

It'll take an hour or so to assemble and not too difficult.You might consider grabbing an extension cord from a hardware store because the cord on the machine is a little short and if you're like me, I want some room to work out on it. I was really surprised at how much of a workout it was after just 5 minutes. I did some reading about PowerPlate and this machine. It's a great deal! A PowerPlate machine is several thousand dollars. Some major athletes and celebrities use this type of machine so this is fantastic to get it for under 300. (Go to PowerPlate and read up on it and the benefits). From some of the studies I read it looks like 10 minutes 3X a week is = to a 60 minute gym workout with weights. It creates bone density, helps connective tissue, reduces cellulite, improves lymphatic and blood flow. It's been recommended for diabetics and the elderly as well. This is a great technology and finally at an affordable price.You might want to go to YouTube and look up some workout positions for PowerPlates. You can get a fast, effective workout. All the research is there. Best of luck. Thanks Overstock! :)
