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!
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
from Whittier's Friendly Hills: 20min fr downtown LA.,
After reading many articles on Vibration fitness training I turned to Overstock to see what they had to offer. I read the reviews on the Crazy Fit Vibration Plate Fitness Machine and decided to purchase it. It arrived quickly and was not hard to put together.
It is quiet even on level 20. WIth knees slightly bent you will feel the burn.
I did feel like I was on a ship after using it for the first few times, but that feeling has now subsided.
In the first week of using it I have lost 3 lbs. and I can actually see my muscles toning.
I would recommend to anyone interested in this product to see how other people use it, you can get quite creative on poses to get to different muscle groups... It is not meant to just stand there. Search on youtube for vibration fitness training to get some ideas.
This machine is not just shaking you, it is causing your muscles to contract at a rate similar to a workout, but without the strain.
All in all I must say it is amazing, and I feel great. Have your friends and family try it and watch them laugh as they experience this strange new sensation.
Based on reviews I bought this machine. I have been looking at the more expensive Vibration Machines and have tested them, so know the quality. I decided to buy this machine to save money because the reviews said "it works just as good" as the more costly machines. This couldn't be more further from the truth. This machine will tip (and I am only 110 lbs), it has a very harsh vibration which gave me a headache for over 2 hrs, and the programmable board will not program as said. So, this machine is getting returned and I do not care how much it costs me in shipping. At least it will be out of my house and maybe get a few bucks back. With this machine you definitely get what you pay for!

I purchased the Crazy fit vibration machine on the strength of the other reviews here on overstock. The product came quickly and was easy to put together (15 minutes). It works very well mechanically. I have noticed that it is giving me a neck ache. It seems to vibrate my head and neck a bit too much. I think I'm getting a little workout on my legs, but I wouldn't praise the results at this point. It is very easy to use......but I think it's too rough on certain parts of my body. After using it for 2 weeks every day, I haven't noticed any positive physical changes. I am not sold on the technology....yet. I'm glad it works so well for others, and I'll keep doing it as long as it doesn't tweak my neck too much, just to see if I get any benefit.

I have fibromyalgia and bought this machine because I read that it was helpful at reducing restless leg symptoms. I have used it for about two weeks and so far I am happy with it. It does reduce RLS symptoms.

Thank you mankat for the question about the Sunny Crazy Fit Vibration Plate Fitness Machine. The difference between the 2012 model and the 2013 model are the year. A review on an independant web sight shows it was nothing but the year. Thank you for the question and thank you for shopping Overstock.com.

What does this weigh? Also, can you please provide the dimensions of the shipping container?
