Vibration Plate Reviews
The Vibratec 2600s Vibration Plate
The brand new VB2600S from Vibratec is a stunningly beautiful vibration plate in a striking piano white finish. Designed for both home and gym use, this particular vibration plate is an amazing performer: quiet enough for the home but powerful and durable enough for light commercial use.
Its ergonomic fibre glass design, clever handlebars and dual consoles mean that whilst you’ll get an enormous benefit out of using this vibration trainer, you’ll also be proud to leave it on display in your house. The fully oscillating AC motors provides a wide range of frequency (25hz – 50hz) with between 0.5 and 8g of acceleration, rivaling the sort of specification found on much more expensive models.
The twin LCD displays, showing time, frequency, amplitude, acceleration, exercise position also show a neat mini personal trainer to help you get the most out of the 3 user programmes and the 4 x 6 pre-set programmes, and the VB2600s supports a maximum user weight of 150 kg.
You can find the Vibratec 2600s on Fitness Venues and in Powerhouse Fitness’s Vibration Plates department for just £999, a saving of almost £500 on the full list price.
The Power Plate My3 Vibration Plate
Everybody knows the Power Plate brand. Their My3 Vibration Plate is the most economical way to get into Power Plate’s Acceleration Training exercise routine. If you can allow just three 15-minute workouts a week you’ll make the most of the Power Plate My3. The sleek, ergonomic design belies the My3’s modest price and the footprint of the machine (just 65 cm x 82 cm x 157 cm) means it’ll fit into the smallest of spaces. It’s also incredibly light, at just 57kg, and comes in both Silver and Black.
The My3, like all Power Plate machines, comes with 2 upper-body straps and the My3 also comes with a contoured mat. It supports a user weight of 120 kg (264 lbs) and has a frequency range of 35hz. You get what you pay for – the My3 Vibration Plate is available from Powerhouse Fitness for £1495.00 at the time of writing, but some of the reviews on sites like Ciao suggest it’s well worth the money, with one buyer proclaiming that “if you start on a higher level you can actually feel fat wobbling around so I am confident this really works.”
The Body Sculpture BM1500 Power Trainer Vibration Plate
The Body Sculpture BM1500 Power Trainer Vibration Plate is a fantastic entry level Vibration Plate. Like all Vibration Plates, the Body Sculpture BM1500 helps to improve muscle strength, overall fitness and tone, and it can also help to improve your bone density, stimulate blood flow, increase circulation, increase overall flexibility and help to repair any damaged tissues.
The BM1500 can be used in association with rehabilitation from injury and helps to decrease muscle soreness as the vibrations cause a reflexive response in the muscle which causes them to contract and expand.
It’s a reasonably small Vibration Plate, at just 54cm x 50cm x 120cm in size, but don’t let that put you off – this little vibration trainer has 10 frequency settings (from 1300 RPM to 2200 RPM) and has workouts that last from 30 to 120 seconds.
If you’re looking for something that’ll help improve your fitness at a great price, then this particular Vibration Trainer would be perfect.
