This machine feels great. I find it's best to start with a slower rate of vibration and then increase it. Much like all other exercise. I use the bended knee leg exercising function the most. Then some straighter knee changes of position to move vibrations up the body. I feel better using it and it's also very relaxing just before bed.
- How accurate was the sizing? Didn't notice. Came in nice box, easy to put together.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well built. Has programs so can let program choose rates of vibration or choose them yourself.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes. It was easy to put together. Only had to think about which way the upward shaft had to go.
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.
- How accurate was the sizing? perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
Instruction manual is poorly written and is in bad English. It also doesn't cover the operating procedures well at all. The machine works well but will I need more time to see if it actually results in better body toning. I also think the machine is well worth the price.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Product quallity is good. But rails should be more sturdy.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No
Overall, I am quite pleased with this product. I use it at least three times a week and there has been a notable increase in my energy. I highly recommend it.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The only issue I have concerning the quality of the product is the stability of the arms. On occassion if you move the machine to another location or tug at the handles, they may move or even come out of the connected bar.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? It was free of defects when I received it.
Have not been able to use much yet, but for the money I am pleased...sure to help out with circulation for my parents....
- Did the product fit true to size? yes
- How is the quality of the product? pretty good quality
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
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!
- Did the product fit true to size? n/a

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. Itís not that complicated to assemble . The look is little different: no name on the support tube as the picture shown on the website! But itís 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
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 really love the machine now that it's together. Would have been easy to put together had the holes been drilled on the right side of the piece that holds the console. My husband had to re-drill the holes on the other side so it all fit together properly. Also some of the screws and bolts were missing. Good thing I have a really great guy who is handy, or I would have never been able to use it.
First, I need to say that the item was damaged, either before it was ever in the box or in transit. Let's just say the box was not damaged. However, using a hammer, I was able to bend the connections (top metal bar opening for the handrails) and open them up myself so I did not have to send it back. Second, while it was relatively easy to put together, the parts in several places don't fit together well. Third, the digital program device is VERY annoying and non-intuitive (i.e., it's hard to use and get the hang of). Fourth, the base is really small - I am short and petite and I cannot do some of the recommended positions if they involve sitting on the base, because I don't fit. Finally, the wheels on the bottom are worthless - I have to drag it when I move it as the wheels don't even turn, much less facilitate a move. Luckily, it is pretty light so moving the machine is not difficult. However, for the price, this machine does work. The vibration is strong (when set high) and I definitely felt it working. I used it several times then went on vacation, and I have not had a chance to use it since I got back. I will start back up again this weekend now that I am nearly caught up at work. Once I have had it longer, I will see if I can update my review to see if it actually has any affect on my physique. It is also not very wide, so it doesn't take up a lot of floor space.
I love this machine! Great workout and many different programs although a little bit hard to figure out. The machine works great but as noted before the power circuit breaker on the back of the machine broke almost instantly so it still works just have to plug and unplug each time for use. Great workout in the comfort of your own home, but if you live in a apartment probably not a good idea cuz on the higher settings it shakes the house. But overall im happy with the Crazyfit!
As many said the on/off button stopped working quickly. I think this is due to the vibration caused by the plate. I have never used one of these machines but I feel it vibrates plenty. I enjoy using the machine and I have seen an overall tone improvement in my body in just two weeks with 10 minutes a day.
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.
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! :)
