Gadget Fit Power Vibration Plate doesn’t vibrate enough to work

The Gadget Fit Power Vibration Plate (MSRP $999) is a pivotal type vibration machine that is widely advertised online and has an eye-catching price, which we’ve seen as low as $200.

However, this machine will not perform like a true vibration machine. You get what you pay for and this inexpensive model weighs only 62 pounds and doesn’t generate enough power for the vibrations to be anywhere close to effective. It’s been given a failing score of 59 out of 100 from vibration-machine-reviews.com

Other drawbacks include handle bars set too low to use when standing up and a small platform that limits what you can do on it.  Continue reading

The Confidence Fitness Slim Full Body Vibration Platform Fitness Machine advertises a great price, but is light on quality.

Confidence Fitness Slim Full Body Vibration Platform Fitness Machine

Scoring just a 60 out of 100 grade from vibration-machine-reviews.com, this machine has problems that are similar to most dual vibration trainers: They aren’t good for vertical or pivotal vibration machines.

On top of that the Confidence Fitness Slim Full Body Vibration Platform Fitness Machine is too light (just 89 pounds) and is made of low quality parts.

This machine has an appealing price tag of just $500 or less and is readily available on Amazon and department stores. It’s compact and has wheels that make it easy to move around. Continue reading

Axis-Plate E6600 Dual Motor Whole Body Vibration Platform Machine doesn’t add up to good value

Review of the Axis-Plate E6600 Dual Motor Whole Body Vibration Platform Machine

There’s no sense debating if vertical or pivotal vibration is better if the overall production quality is poor.

Axis-Plate E6600 Dual Motor Whole Body Vibration Platform Machine

In the case of the Axis-Plate E6600 Dual Motor Whole Body Vibration Platform Machine (MSRP $649), which earned just a 61 out of 100 score from vibration-machine-reviews.com, it is a dual vibration machine but doesn’t do either one well.

The general consensus with vibration training machines is that in order for them to be effective a 30-45 hertz range provides the most benefits. It’s generally not recommended to go above 50 hertz or lower than 25 hertz to realize the benefits of real vibration training.  Continue reading

NordicTrack / Proform® V7 Vibration™ Vibration Machine

Review of the NordicTrack / Proform® V7 Vibration™ Vibration Machine

We understand the need to have lower-priced models on the market across different industries, but there comes a point when a product is so economized that it’s not worth paying for.

NordicTrack / Proform® V7 Vibration™ Vibration Machine

That’s our opinion of the NordicTrack / Proform® V7 Vibration™ Vibration Machine (MSRP $999), which earned a 63 out of 100 from vibration-machine-reviews.com.

Vibration machines need to generate enough power to force muscles to react and we simply do not feel the effects on the NordicTrack / Proform® V7 Vibration™ Vibration Machine.  Continue reading

Hypervibe G17 PRO Gravity Resistance Training machine doesn’t pack enough power

Count the Hypervibe G17 PRO Gravity Resistance Training machine (MSRP $3,495) among the many pivotal type vibration machine that are widely marketed online and through independent distributors.

The 170-pound weight of the machine is solid and it’s rated for users up to 440 pounds. We like the functional, “swan neck” design of the upright column, which provides a lot more room for exercising than some machines with straight uprights that lead to bumping into the support. A new color LCD with 100 workouts provides a big bright readout.

Many better choices than the PowerVibe® Pro 2™ Vibration Machine

The PowerVibe® Pro 2™ Vibration Machine (MSRP $1,995) scores points for being the first machine in the company’s lineup that uses an upright column and handles. A frequency level up to 50 Hertz, which is adjustable by single digits, is good to see and so is a two years parts warranty.

PowerVibe Pro Home Vibration Machine

The Power Vibe Pro Home Vibration Machine (MSRP $999) is a small, basic vibrating platform without an upper console. It’s light weight, portable and uses vertical vibration.
Unfortunately, this machine does not have the power to adequately activate and stimulate a person’s muscle fibers.

Although we like vertical vibration, the Power Vibe Pro Homedoes not deliver enough power to get a good workout and registered just a 68 out of 100 score from VibrationMachineReviews.com. Continue reading

PowerVibe Motion 1 Vibration Machine lacks Wow factor

PowerVibe Motion 1 Vibration Machine Review

The Power Vibe Motion 1 (MSRP $1,995) has a solid, pivotal vibration movement system, but the overall look and design is very average.

Simply stated, this machine doesn’t have any “wow” factor. The design is extremely basic and the front cross bar actually hinders the ability to perform many exercises. It gets in the way when you try to do movements such as pushups, hamstring stretches or lunges. Continue reading

Many better options than Power Plate My3 Vibration Machine

Power Plate My3 Vibration Machine Review

Power Plate is generally regarded as the first company to really bring vibration training machines to the masses and is still a leader in the industry.

However, the Power Plate My3 Vibration Machine (MSRP $2,599) is far from the best option unless you’re really looking to save money on an entry level machine. VibrationMachineReviews.com awarded the Power Plate My3 Vibration Machine Vibration Machine a 74 out of 100 ranking.

The Power Plate My3 is the entry level machine in Power Plate’s lineup and has a small footprint of just 25 inches x 29 x 60. For the price point of $2,600 or below, the Power Plate My3 is a good option, but we feel consumers can do better. Continue reading

DKN XG-10 Vibration Machine not worth the big price tag

DKN XG-10 Vibration Machine Review

The DKN XG-10 Vibration Machine is a solid piece of equipment, but in no way, shape or form do we feel it’s worth the MSRP of $3,995. VibrationMachineReviews.com has awarded the DKN XG-10 Vibration Machine a 78 out of 100 ranking.

DKN XG-10 Vibration Machine

The DKN Technology XG10 Vibration Machine utilizes a commercial AC grade motor, which is a step up in power from the company’s XG5 Pro and XG3.

While the motor is solid, with a platform size of just 27.5 inches x 13, and a machine weight of only 161 pounds, there are several other machines that stack up a lot better near this price point. Continue reading
