Vibration Plate Reviews and Training Guide
Over 30 Top Models Tested Here!
We hope our vibration plate reviews will help you make the right decision to get the best results - at a price you can afford.
Also known as power plates, these machines are designed to give you the benefits of an hour's workout in about 6 minutes, and you don't need to load your body with heavy dumbbells or other weights.
However, choosing the right machine to help achieve your personal health or fitness goals, can be extremely difficult - there's so many to choose from! That's why we have created our useful Buyers Guide and unbiased reviews, so you can make an informed decision before you buy.
And just to make it easier for you, we've tested over 30 of the most popular models here!
It's also important that the price you pay is competitive. So we keep an eye on the retailers to find who has the best deal and offers at any time.
We're a group of personal trainers who are very enthusiastic about vibration training and the benefits it can deliver. But please note, we don't sell any fitness equipment nor promote a specific brand or get paid for writing these reviews.
We fund this site with a combination of adverts and, in some cases, receiving a small commission from referrals to a number of retaiers - at no extra cost to you.

Too Good To Be True?
Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV) is a real break through in training and conditioning of the body. And they really can deliver results - whether you're planning to lose weight, shape specific body parts or you're a professional athlete looking to improve your performance.
So how does it work?
When you stand (or use other positions) on a vibrating platform, your body is forced to make adjusts to maintain balance. It does this with rapid muscle contractions (and releases) so you don't fall over! Because the plate is vibrating at a fast rate, your muscles constantly have to react, and hence the intense workout in a short space of time.|
By varying your positions, the frequency of vibration and the amplitude of the platform, you can either tone, stretch, strengthen or get a massage using your plate. (see our Buyers' Guide button top left for a more detailed description of these terms). Note also, there are two different types of vibrating platform on the market at present.
The debate goes on about whether oscillating or vertical is the best - you can read our two pennies worth here.
You can also check out the results from the latest vibration training studies, if you're sceptical about the benefits.

This isn't to say that it's a short cut to a beautiful body and optimum health - now that really would be too good to be true! You still need to make sure you have a healthy eating plan and include other forms of physical activities like cardiovascular training for example.
But if you're considering buy one, click here to find out how it could work for you.

One of the cheapest plates on the market is the Crazy Fit Massage - but is it false economy?
It's not a vibration plate, but the Revitive Circulation Booster is getting a lot of publicity, but is it fair to call it a medical device? See our review here.

"Congratulations on your review site. I so often read sites that set the consumer up to be ripped off instead of help. Usually written by someone with zero time on these machines, it's sincerely nice to see someone doing their homework." Lloyd Shaw, International Product Manager, Vibra-Train (New Zealand)
"I'd like to say thank you for your website and its excellent information which made a big difference recently in helping me to purchase a vibration plate for my mother. There is so much sales-hype out there, it was refreshing to come across something down to earth that gave exactly the information I needed and made sense of so much of the guff, including what many products were not telling me! We are delighted with the eTone we bought following your reviews." Geri Coop, Massage Therapist
"Trying to buy vibroplates could be a very daunting experience. Thankfully I stumbled across this website. Your buyer's guide, price list & reviews were very helpful. I narrowed it down to 2 machines but wasn't sure which would be the most suitable for me. I sent you an email to ask for help. I received a reply very quickly and decided to follow your advice. I have been using the Orbus Crazy fit for 3 weeks now and am so pleased with my purchase!" Cecile from Wexford, Ireland.
