I've had it for about 3 weeks to a month now & I love it. I use it everyday. I don't get a lot of exercise otherwise & the Crazy Fit is just what I need. It loosens up my painful joints & back & it helps keep my fluid retention in tact, too. For the price, you can't go wrong. My 9 yr old granddaughter who is slightly overweight will use it when she visits, too.

I opened the box, looking for all the parts, it took a minute to discover the screws were already in place-so I had to unscrew them to assemble it. I had to read the instructions a couple of times to get the grammar usage figured out. It went together easily and runs well. I have used it daily for 2 weeks, I don't know if I have reduced the excess flab I am hoping to, but I really feel there is benefit to using it-my whole body enjoys it and when the time is over, I am almost disappointed I don't have more time for it! For the $$, I feel like it is a good investment for me and my level of commitment to exercise!

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 usually do not make a habit of ordering LARGE electric items online. I like to actually inspect the item before I buy, but I took a chance here. I wasn't disappointed.

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.

Invigorating, easy, stimulating AND relaxing. A good purchase overall, so far. The power switch did not work after being switched on and off about 3 times, it was only on from that time. The room I planned on using it in has plug-ins that only start with the light switch at the door being turned on, so----that's where I plugged it in. I saw other reviews before I bought this one with the same problem. An inconvenience, but overall a good purchase!

We were extremely pleased with this machine. It was easy to assemble and works very well. It is an excellent machine for the price. The only negative is the guide book. It is very hard to figure out how to use the machine without one of the two standard programs. We have just made up our own, but could find no information in the booklet or on the manufacture's website. Overall though the machine is awesome!

I have wanted this machine for some time and Overstock was out of the units for a while. Overstock.com offers the best price and has many reviews which other sites do not have. It was worth the wait. The unit arrived in 2 days, for $1.00 shipping. Amazing now days. It was easy to assemble and all parts went in where they were supposed to with no drilling . etc.. needed. Both my wife and I enjoy the machine. It takes a bit of getting familiar with. The workouts are excellent. This machine was manufactured in China, which is evident from the instruction manual. You must read them very carefully as they are very small and the language is not always the best.

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. It’s not that complicated to assemble . The look is little different: no name on the support tube as the picture shown on the website! But it’s 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

Purchased this after trying out friend's 2 year old Sunny Fitness WBV machine....Pros: after 30 days, 10 minutes almost every day, with exercise and diet, I have lost inches in my lower extremities....almost a size smaller.... Possible Con: at speeds 8 and higher, the neck and the arms of the machine rattle....Can't tell whether it is a design flaw or my height (5'8") .....even after reassembling it..my friend's machine doesn't rattle....but she is 5 inches shorter with a different weight distribution......will try other brands before recommending it to others....

I can't believe that I'm writing this but here I am! Because of health problems, I was told NOT to do cardio for awhile. So I used my thighmaster and created my own abs exercises. I had just given away 2 full garbage bags full of my skinny jeans and NOW they would have fit me with room to spare. The more and more I use it, the easy it gets to use. People tell me that I look thinner, but I know that it's THIGHMASTER whittling down my waiste size.Thanks Suzanne!

I am having some bad health problems and this will fit in nicely with my life to keep me from getting too far gone. It also is a great help for physical therapy too. I am thrilled with this and will be more thrilled when I can last longer than 3 minutes lol. That sounds like so little but it does give you a workout and when you have health problems it is a major workout. Just make sure you doctor says it is ok if you do have problems like I do.

Enjoying my sunny crazy fit vibration plate. Can feel tightness in thighs when using, so I know it has to be working. Also is enjoyable. Have in front of t.v., so watching the news while using, makes for a nice little workout. Too new to see any results just yet, but my sister has the same one, and she swears that she has lost flabbiness in her legs. She does it everyday and never misses a day. I think is a good product for the price.

I bought this for my wife for Christmas, since she had been able to use a similar machine at a gym & at an associate's house. She loves it, & will attest to the claims of its health & fitness benefits. The unit was delivered promptly (ie, by the 24th so I could have it assembled in time!), but the assembly was the only part I have a complaint with. One of the screws/holes was stripped, but there are two screws at each connection point so I'm keeping an eye on it to see if there is any loosening. The pictorial instructions were very small scale & barely legible. Fortunately, the quantity of pieces & their respective locations are straightforward enough to complete the assembly without having to verify each part number on the diagrams.

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 have an older version and use it regularly for my arthritis in my knees. It really helps especially when I set it to the higher speed settings where it really gets the blood moving in my feet and knees. My mom came to visit and I noticed that she kept twitching her legs when she would sit on the couch. I asked her about it and she said that she had been taking meds for it, had been to the chiropractor and have been getting massages to try to reduce the "Restless Leg Syndrome" but it was not helping. My mother is 74 so it took a bit to convinced her to step on to the plate and just run through 10 minutes with it. The longer she stayed on it, them more she would comment on how good it felt. She made a few adjustments on the speed and found the setting that seemed to suit her best and at the end of the 10 minutes she reset it for another session. She did not have any more twitching that day and slept all night. The next day, she had me buy this one. It took 5 days to get it and my uncle put it together shortly after receiving it. She jumped right on it and was so happy because she had been having the Restless leg problems again. My mother is a super active person and has never been one to go to a gym. This is her first exercise machine and she will fight you over it. She absolutely loves it. Of course I do too! Mine is also a crazy fit - a previous version that was bought in 2010. If you have Neuropathy, Arthritis and the likes, you have to have one of these machines.

I have an inversion table at home. i used the boots with a pull up bar at my work site overseas. It turned out to be a bit of a challenge to get up and down on a straight bar but I eventually figured it out. bend your knees. the padding was good and the snaps worked well to get a good fit each time. It was hard to tell when i was ordering what size I was actually purchasing. Be careful and make sure you get the right size. I would recommend these boots for an experienced hanger or someone with mild or no health/back issues. Unlike an inversion table which offers angles of degrees, straight down is your only option with boots. an inversion table gives your spine, neck and joints time to adjust and expand as you slowly go further and further over. Hanging with boots is sudden and possibly painful if you have back problems, etc. I don't think you can really do damage to your body (but what do I know) but it might hurt first timers and shock them. Call your chiropractor or doctor !
