When it comes to home fitness equipment, you might think of weights, ellipticals and treadmills — and not necessarily vibration machines.
However, many fitness enthusiasts are advocating for adding a vibration plate or machine to your home exercise equipment as a way to “use whole-body vibrations to force your muscles to contract reflexively.” These vibrating plates causes the body to expel energy and burn calories depending on the strength of the vibrations.
Studies have shown that these vibrating gadgets help with fat loss, lowering blood pressure, as well as improved body composition and lower body power.
The LifePro Waver Vibration Plate offers 99 different speed settings of body vibrations to help engage muscles, improve circulation, reduce joint stress and help you lose weight while you complete a low-impact workout out or resting.
Each vibration plate includes a remote control, anti-slip rubber padding for your feet and suction cups on the bottom of the unit for stability. In addition, yoga straps and resistance bands are included with your purchase, allowing you to enjoy a variety of workouts available through LifePro’s video library and free e-book.
What people are saying
LifePro’s versatile vibrating plate has been called a great way to “stay active” and alleviate “stiff shoulders, neck and back pain” with consistent use.
The unit has earned more than 10,700 five star reviews on Amazon Canada from shoppers who found the vibrating plate an easy way to improve fitness for “anyone who had joint and muscle pain.”
“A great cure for my restless leg syndrome,” one person said.
“Feels like I’m getting a full body massage,” another said adding that they use the plate on its lowest setting to ease back pain.
“I feel so much better,” a reviewer wrote.
Although there are thousands of positive reviews, there are some things to be mindful of before you buy. First, consider speaking with your healthcare provider before you adopt any new fitness routine. Second, some shoppers have said that the machine was “noisy” or loud during a workout, and have said that the machine is “bigger” than they anticipated and “hard to store.”
Others found that they didn’t enjoy the side-to-side vibrating sensation (like a wave), so the workout might not be the best for everyone.
If you're looking for a low-impact way to improve your fitness and ease tension on your joints, LifePro's Waver Vibration Plate might be for you. The plate requires little to no effort to engage your muscles, burn calories and improve circulation. However, some shoppers have said that they found the unit too "bulky" and hard to store, while others said that they found they ultimately didn't enjoy the vibrations.
