If you have been trying to lose weight with little to no success, then this vibration machine from SDS Fitness is just what you need. Although it comes with many other benefits, including lymphatic drainage, and bone strengthening, the Whole Full Body Vibration Plate excels in burning calories above anything else.
That makes it a perfect addition to your health and wellness equipment.
The Whole Full Body Vibration Plate is a whole body vibration machine (WBV) machine that offers tri-planner (or linear) vibrations. In this kind of motion, the machine’s plate moves up and down as well as back and forth so that the overall effect of the two sets of motion is a spiral-like movement. This is the kind of vibration that is ideal for burning fat, building leaner stronger muscles, and improving bone density, among other benefits.
Construction and Design
Everything about the physical features of the Whole Full Body Vibration Plate is proof of what the manufacturer had in mind – to make an easy to use but efficient workout equipment that can be set up in a home setting.
For starters, it comes complete with all the components in the box. You will need to put the various pieces together, but that is a simple process that you can manage just by following the user manual.
Once up and running, the first thing you will notice is that the machine is compact and well-sized to fit inside any typical home. It weighs a mere 30 pounds, which is light enough for you to carry the whole unit to any room you want to use it in, or between rooms even. In fact, the light weight, together with the fact that it doesn’t have hand rails, makes it one of the most portable WBV machines and you can even travel with it.
But that should not fool you into thinking it can’t support a lot of weight. The manufacturer’s recommended weight limit is 330 pounds. That makes it perfect for people who are trying to shed off some pounds by using vibration technology rather than sweating it out using traditional exercise routines.
The platform is large – one of the largest in the market today. You can stand on it comfortably even if you have larger than average sized feet. If you’re on the smaller side, you can sit or even lie on the plate. If you prefer standing, you will like the fact that the unit comes with arm bands that you can use to exercise your arms and upper body.
On top of those features, the manufacturer offers a full one year warranty as a guarantee of quality. It’s effectively a win-win situation choosing this product.
Features and Usability
The Whole Full Body Vibration Plate is a 42 Hz machine, meaning that it has a maximum vibration speed of 42 Hz. That is a pretty advanced level that only experienced users should use. Luckily, there are multiple other settings, with the minimum being 5 Hz for less experienced users.
A setting of 5 is soft enough for beginners and those who suffer from bone or muscle-related illnesses that are trying to use workouts as a recovery option. The unit is fitted with a dial that you can use to adjust speed as you progress from 5 towards 42.
As mentioned already, this machine doesn’t have a hand rail. While that might be a disadvantage for those who have trouble balancing properly without some form of support, it is an advantage because it gives you room for you to squat, sit, or even lie on the platform, to work out other muscle groups as well.
The arm bands that come with the package make for a great addition. They are handy tools for exercising your arms as well as your upper and lower body. In addition to that, you have a timer that sets sessions of up to 20 minutes so you’ll know when you’re done. This unit is really a complete workout package that can help you achieve your fitness goals.
Although pretty much everything about this device is quality, this WBV machine excels in versatility more than anything else.
First of all, it has four modes, namely, P1 (for cardio workouts), P2 (for detox), P3 (for muscle toning) and manual.
Those are pretty much all the settings that you need to stay healthy and fit.
Secondly, it is also versatile in usability. It doesn’t have hand rails that tend to limit your positions and maneuverability. Therefore, you can stand, squat, sit, or lie on the plate and still enjoy the great effects of its vibrations.
Alternatively, you can simply sit on a chair and use the machine as a footstool for not only resting your feet but stimulating their muscles as well.
With all its versatility, you only need to spare 20 minutes for spending on the machine every day, and you will be amazed at what it can do, especially with how much fat you’re able to burn.
- Comes as a complete package with everything you need for a full body workout.
- Very easy to install. There is an included user manual with guidelines.
- Can handle as much as 330 pounds of weight.
- Fairly affordable unit
- Burns fat while at the same time stimulating reflexive functions, lymphatic drainage, muscle toning, and enhancing posture.
- One of the most portable WBV machines in the market today.
- There are some durability concerns.
Sure, some customers have raised durability concerns arguing that the machine’s weight is too small to support 330 pounds over the long haul. While that is a genuine concern, it all boils down to how well you use the machine. If you don’t overuse it (two 20-minute sessions are ideal for a 330-pound user), it won’t wear and tear fast. You will enjoy its amazing benefits for a very long time.
