BSlimmer Vibration Plate

Whether you are interested in improving your bone density, losing weight, toning muscles or increasing your blood circulation, there are many great reasons why you should be curious about vibration plates.  You need to be mindful though, if you are looking to try vibration plate-involved exercising, you need to ensure that you invest in a good quality machine by a reputable and trusted brand that also falls within your available budget.  The reason being is that not all vibration plates are designed and manufactured the same.

Although top of the line vibration plates do feature all the features and extras you could ever want to enhance your workout experience, they are not the cheapest models on the market.  If you are restricted by your budget then, you should consider the BSlimmer Vibration Plate.  Despite it it’s relatively love price, the BSlimmer Vibration plate packs a powerful punch and is a good introduction to this style of exercise.

Fully Equipped With An Oscillation Plate

As an oscillating platform machine, this BSlimmer model’s base has a central fulcrum point which means that the platform you stand, sit, kneel or even lie on wobbles  from side to side similarly to a see-saw swing.  This can be a great benefit as it is a good substitute for the motion of walking.  Users often feel more comfortable with an oscillation plate machine than they do a linear plate machine.

Another important benefit of the oscillating motion is the fact that fewer G forces are created.  This means that the joints have less impact, which is great for people suffering from joint pain or damage.

Variable Oscillation Speed Settings From A Powerful Motor

The BSlimmer does not disappoint when it comes to motor power, because when it is running at its maximum speed, the machine can achieve a total of 2500 rpm.  Even when you are using the machine at the lowest speed settings, you will still feel the vibrations working through your muscles.  As the machine’s speed settings are adjustable, it enables you the chance to fine tune and tweak the settings to suit your own fitness level and capabilities so you are never overworking or under-working yourself.

bslimmer vibration plateSo whether you want to push yourself really hard or want a nice and relaxed workout, you can do either with this machine at the touch of a few buttons.  There is also three pre-loaded workout programmes that you can choose from low, medium and high.  However, don’t be dismayed as there is 50 different speed settings you can select manually to really challenge yourself.

Very Robust and Sturdy Platform Design And Construction

Obviously the quality of the design and build of a product is very important and the BSlimmer vibration plate does not disappoint in this regard either.  The robust and sturdy platform weighs around 32 Kg and is capable of supporting users with a maximum weight of 120 Kg.

The one downside of this particular vibration plate’s design is the fact that there are no vertical support bars or hand rails.  However, this can be compensated for by placing the machine close to a wall or another stationary item you can use for support.  As an additional layer of support though, the platform is made of grooved material to give you a stronger grip under your foot to avoid unnecessary and unwanted skids and slips.

Equipped With Easy To Use Digital Control Panel And Remote Control

Like the vast majority of vibration plates available on the market these days, the BSlimmer vibration plate features a very easy to use, push button digital control panel.  The control panel features buttons for selecting the speed, workout duration and the pre-installed workout programmes.

As the control panel on-board the vibration plate is low mounted, it can be hard to reach when you are working out – particularly if you are lying or facing away from it.  Fortunately, BSlimmer have included a remote control that offers the exact same options that are featured on the digital display panel.

Accessories

  • 2 flexible power cords for additional upper body toning exercises

Another BSlimmer entry into the vibration plate market, the very colourful and trendy Colours PLUS Unisex Adult Vibration plate may appear to be a fun and lightweight machine.  However, it is actually a very serious and powerful piece of exercise equipment.

BSlimmer Colours PLUS Vibro Plate

This improved and updated model features an enhanced design that provides you with better flexibility and support and a wider range of workout options.  Much like the rest of the vibration plates available nowadays, the BSlimmer Colors machine can help improve your balance, increase the amount of fat you burn and help you to tone up most of the muscle groups in your body.  All without requiring as much exertion or time as other forms of exercise and other exercise tools and machines.

Not Just A Pretty Design

The BSlimmer Colors model provides you with oscillations of 2500 rpm when set to maximum speed and a choice of 50 different speeds to choose from, proving that it is more than just a pretty design.  Whether you are looking for an easy going , wind down type of workout at the end of a hard day or something to ease yourself into working out again after a long period of no activity or are looking to really push and challenge yourself; you can do it all and so much more with the BSlimmer Colors vibration plate.

Unlike the other vibration plate from BSlimmer reviewed on this very website, this model comes with vertical support bars to help improve your overall experience and make it a little bit safer in the process.  The great thing is that the support bars are detachable, so when you are taking part in exercises that do not require you to be in a standing position or when you are stowing it away when you are not using it.

BSlimmer also know how tricky low mounted control panels can be to reach and adjust when you are in the middle of an awkward pose, lying down or facing away from it for a particular workout.  This is why they have included, something that is also a standard these days, a remote control that offers the same functionality as the control panel without the hassle of having to reach for it or stop your exercise routine to change the settings.

BTM are one of the best known and much loved manufacturers of vibration plates and therefore if you are looking for a good quality, high performing exercise machine, you can do a lot worse than opt for one of their industry models, like this particular one we are going to look at in the following review.

When you start reading about vibration plates and the incredible results that are possible from using them, it is not too hard to see why they have become one of the most popular pieces of home gym equipment.  They can help you to lose weight

What does this BTM model have to offer you?  Let’s take a closer look.

Powered By An Almost Completely Noise-Free 1000 Watt Motor

When looking at vibration plates and trying to choose one that suits your budget and needs, one aspect of their build that you should look at above all else is the power rating.  This BTM model provides users with 1000 Watts of power and it’s power that vibrates the plates, which in turn exercises your muscles.  1000 Watts is not the most powerful or most weakest on the market, and provides enough power for the maximum weight of 120 Kg that it is capable of taking.

The added bonus of course is that the motor is not only reasonably powerful, but also incredibly quiet when running.  This is great news for just about anyone, but especially people who either live in households with a lot of other family members or people and people who live in relatively small living spaces (such as flats, apartments and small houses) or who live in upper flats or semi-detached or attached properties.  Even when running at full power, this machine will not disrupt the activities of people within the same house or flat as the user or their neighbours.  The result of this is also that even if you prefer to workout in the early hours of the morning or the last hours of the day, you can do so without causing any noise pollution.

Features On-board Easy To Operate And Touch Sensitive Control Panel And Digital Display

Part of the enjoyment of working out from the comfort of your own home can be hampered by having equipment that requires a full electronic and electrical engineering degree to operate it.  This is something that BTM always try to avoid with their products and pride themselves in creating and building exercise machines, such as this vibration plate, that are incredibly intuitive and easy to use – even if you are a complete newbie to exercise machines.

BTM Silent Motor Vibration Plate

As with many of their other models, this BTM vibration plate features a touch sensitive responsive control panel and digital display.  From the control panel you can select the speed setting from the available 1 to 99 levels, 3 different built-in programmes and monitor the speed and duration of your workouts.  It won’t take much practice to master using these controls and this just makes the experience more enjoyable.

Versatile Built-In Programmes And A Fully Adjustable 99 Speed Levels

When you are spending upwards of £100 on an exercise machine, you will want to know that you are getting good value in return for your investment.  BTM know this only too well and ensure that their vibration plates offer versatility, which is helpful for preventing workouts becoming dull or repetitive.  This vibration plate is a great example as it offers you a total of 99 different vibration speed levels to choose from.

If you are new to exercise or have not exercised in a long time, this kind of choice is necessary as it will enable you to select a low vibration speed that you can cope with; while on the other side of the scale, if you are a regular at the local gym or always involved in physical activity, you will be able to adjust the speed to meet your more demanding needs.

In addition to the easily adjusted vibration speed settings, there are also 3 built-in programmes which you can select when you just want to get on the plate and exercise, without faffing around with settings.

Accessories

  • Flexible arm resistance cords for increased versatility, particularly if you are looking to perform upper body-focused exercises using the vibration plate
  • Remote control
  • Instruction manual and user guide

Dimensions

Despite it’s pulley layout and caster wheels, this BTM is still a very compact and easily stored vibration plate measuring at a width of 65 cm by a depth of 51 cm by a height of 24 cm.

Pros

  • Practical and easy to transport pulley system with handle (that is collapsible)
  • 1000 W Motor With Silent Running Technology

There is also, for those of you who know what you want to target or who just don’t want to have to adjust and adjust and want to just exercise without thinking about it, three built-in workout programmes to challenge you.

Improved And More Detailed Control Panel And Digital Display

Although one or two customers have commented that it is hard to assemble, others have reassuringly stated that they had no such problems.  As ever though it is the results from using the vibration plate that take up most space in the reviews section.  Less painful limbs, weight loss, strengthened and toned muscles are some of the benefits customers have stated that they have experienced just from using the Gym Master 2017 model for the recommended 10 minutes per workout session.

In case you’ve been living under a rock somewhere and have not had a chance to look through our website yet, vibration plates are exercise tools that utilise vibrations to cause the muscles to contact and relax.  As a result there are a whole plethora of benefits including increased muscle growth and toning, increased fat burn and improve circulation and bone density to name but a few.  The great thing is that you don’t need to enroll in the local gym and can purchase machines like the Confidence Vibetone Vibration trainer to use at home, when and for how long you want.

Choice Of 16 Vibration Speed Levels

The Confidence Vibetone makes use of a linear plate with a reasonably wide frequency range of 820 rpm to 2100 rpm.  Even at just shy of £100 you will want to be sure that the product offers enough versatility and value for the price tag.  With a total of 16 different vibration speed settings to choose from, there is definitely a lot to tweak and personalise your experience with.  We all have different fitness levels and this vibration plate from Confidence takes that on board.  If you are new to this form of exercise or have not exercised in quite some time, you can simply stick to the slower speed settings.  Whereas if you are a fitness enthusiast, you may want to opt for a faster speed.

Confidence Vibetone Vibration Plate

Although there are machines on the market with wider ranges of speed settings, 16 is still pretty good for the asking price.

Operated Either By The Digital Control Panel Or By The Remote Control

One of the biggest selling points of this entry-priced machine is just how easy to use it is.  Confidence have really looked at what newcomers would want from a machine and ensured that virtually anyone will be able to step on the machine, press a couple of buttons and start working out.  From the digital control panel features buttons for switching between the manual and automatic modes, varying the intensity of your workout by increasing and decreasing the vibration speed setting and setting the workout time.  It is not just the time and speed selections that are displayed on the screen though, as the calories burned during a workout is also calculated and displayed.

As it can be quite tricky to adjust settings while you are in the middle of a workout, the Vibetone vibration plate comes with a remote control that offers you access to the same functions as the control panel.

Practical, Sturdy, Lightweight and Very Compact Design And Construction

When you need to move your Vibetone Vibration Trainer, you will find it a breeze thanks to the compact and very lightweight design.  In addition to the lightweight design there is also wheels underneath the plate which make it even easier to transport and roll out for use and roll away for storage.

The terms lightweight and compact should not be mistaken for flimsy though, as the Confidence Vibetone is anything but and it is actually one of the most robust available on the market.

Despite some of the less than pleased comments left in the review section by unhappy customers, there is a,lot of good to be said about the Confidence Vibetone Vibration trainer.  Not only is it manufactured by a trusted and highly reputable brand, but it is also available at a very affordable price.  If budget is a serious issue, but you still want a lightweight and sturdy machine to lose weight and tone your muscles from the comfort of your own home, then you should seriously look into purchasing the Confidence Vibetone Vibration Trainer.

What does this particular machine have to offer and why should you consider it over other Crazy Vibrations products?  This is what we will discuss in the following review.

Bluefin Vibration Plate with Built in Speakers 2017 Upgraded And Enhanced Silent Operating Motor With Maximum Power Output Of 3900 Watts

As vibration plate machines such as this model from Crazy Vibrations are meant for home use, it makes perfect sense to be concerned about how noisy the motor might be.  The good news is with this updated and enhanced model for 2017 the motor is even quieter and not only that – more powerful than previous models.  The 2000 Watt silent running motor produces 3900 Watts of power when operating at maximum level.  This is in part why it is able to manage a load of up to 150 kg.

Because it is silent running, you needn’t worry about waking up the whole house or disturbing the neighbours, if you want to use it early in the morning or late at night.  Even if you live in an upper flat or semi-detached house, at the highest setting, this Crazy Vibrations plate will not cause any noise pollution.

Comes With 3 Pre-Installed Workout Programmes And 180 Different Incremental Vibration Speed Settings

Variety is the spice of life and this is no truer a statement than when it comes to exercise and working out from home.  As individuals, we all have very different levels of muscle strength and fitness, as well as different levels of health and well-being.  Therefore, one of the biggest selling points of this vibration plate, like previous models from Crazy Vibrations is the versatility and variety it offers you.

If you have mobility issues or recurring, long-standing issues with specific muscle groups, joints or have not exercised in a long time, you will still find this machine useful.  There are 180 different vibration speed settings to choose from, so you are bound to find your exercise sweet spot.  It may take some tweaking though, but if you start off on a lower setting you can always easily adjust it to a higher setting as and when you feel more comfortable doing so.

Perhaps you don’t want to have to think about constantly changing the speed of the vibrations and just want to concentrate on benefiting from using the device.  In that case you can select one of the three pre-installed workout programmes, that will give you a reasonably quick, but effective workout regardless of which you choose.

Added Bonus of Built-In Speakers To listen To Music As Extra Motivation While You Work Out

As is becoming more and more common on modern home workout machines, and similar to those you will come across at your local gym; this Crazy Vibrations vibration plate comes with built-in speakers.  Music is always a good motivator when it comes to exercising as it enables you to take your mind off what you are putting your body through and concentrate on your favourite tracks instead.  With the built-in speakers you can connect your own MP3 player up and easily listen to your own preferred workout playlist.

ReaseJoy 500 Watt Vibration Plate Crazy Fit Massage Exercise Machine Oscillating Platform

button

We know that not everyone has access to the same budget and therefore the higher priced, often considered better, vibration plates on the market may not be viable options for many of you reading these reviews.  Do not be dismayed because although you may not be able to afford one of the bigger and better known brand’s machines, there are still great options out there, that will give you change from £100.  Take this ReaseJoy 500 Watt Vibration Plate for instance.

Although you may not know the name ReaseJoy, as you will see from our overview and review below, their entry to the vibration plate market is not something you should easily dismiss.

Driven By A Powerful Single Belt Drive High Performance 500 Watt Motor

Obviously, one of the most important components of any vibration plate machine is the motor that powers the vibration plates themselves.  This model from ReaseJoy is driven by a very powerful single belt drive 500 watt motor.  The single belt drive motor means that you get a much more even and stable distribution of vibrations that enhances your overall exercise experience using the machine.  Due to the power level of the motor, the platform can comfortably cope with a maximum weight of 150 Kg.

When you consider that this much power comes from something so slick and portable, measuring at just 68 cm by 38 cm by 14 cm, it is really quite surprising.

Versatile Range Of Speed Settings And Range Of Preset Programmes For A Fully Immersive Workout Every Time

One thing you will notice a lot, especially if you are only just starting to look at the various vibration plates available nowadays, is that most come with a specific range of vibration speed settings and pre-installed workout programmes to give users versatility when it comes to exercising from the comfort of their own home.  The ReaseJoy machine provides you with a full range of vibration speed settings from 1 to 99, enabling you to have full control over how fast the vibration plate actually vibrates.

reasejoy vibration plateThis means if you are suffering from any sort of ailment or are not in the best physical shape, you can still benefit (with guidance from a health care professional) from using the vibration plate.  It also gives you the chance to alter your workouts as you become physically more able and stronger.

If you do not fancy tweaking and altering the manual controls and want to just get on and exercise specific muscle groups or your whole body, there are also a range of preset workout programmes that means you can just press a couple of buttons and start your training.

Features 2 Digital Display Screens And Simple To Use Control Panel

As is very much standard these days with vibration plates becoming more and more digitalised, the ReaseJoy machine features 2 different digital displays.  One of LED displays the time or chosen programme while the other displays the vibration speed setting.  There are also 8 different buttons that give you full control over the machine’s different functions.  They are designed to be very responsive and soft on your fingertips, to make using the vibration plate as easy as possible, even for people who are complete novices when it comes to gym exercises.

As the device is platform-based only, it can be tricky to access the control panel from standing and various other positions.  However, it does feature another accessory that is becoming more and more a standard these days, a remote control.  The remote control gives you full access to the controls of the vibration plate even when you are unable to access the onboard control panel.

JTX 6000 High Power Vibration & Oscillation Plate

jtx6000

button

You could be forgiven for thinking that some of the claims made about the JTX Fitness 600 high power vibration and oscillation plate exercise machine and others like it, are far-fetched sales patter to say the least.  However, the claim that this kind of machine can exercise almost all of the muscle groups in your body, without needing any serious level of exertion has been proven time and time again to be more fact than fiction.

Because of the above and the way the machine works, the vibration plate has been called a passive form of exercise.  Many health and fitness experts agree that vibration exercise has great benefits for the user, with some of the results from test workouts exceeding traditional forms of workout (particularly when it comes to improvements in bone circulation and bone density).

Jtx vibration plate

The JTX 6000 manufactured by JTX Fitness is one of the most widely available, well known and popular vibration plates on the market, but is it as good as people say it is?

Peek Power Rating Of 4000 Watts For Strong Vibrations And Oscillations

As the JTX Fitness uses two forms of vibration training, there are 2 different power ratings.  On the vibration side of things, it provides a total of 500 watts of power; while for the osculation functionality, it provides 2000 Watts of power, with an overall power rating of 4000 Watts.  This exercise tool is therefore able to efficiently and safely operate with a maximum of 160 kg onboard.

Two Types Of Vibration

Something that makes this vibration plate from JTX Fitness stand out from the sea of very similar vibration machines, is the fact it offers you not just one, but two forms of vibration training in one machine – vibration and oscillation.

Vibration training involves high speed vibrations for massage, strength and toning and oscillation training for body fat reduction, reducing cellulite and overall weight loss.  You have the option to make use of one or the other, depending on what you are working on each routine, or if you want to experience a truly high intensity workout that will give you the quickest results, you can combine both the oscillation and vibration in the same workout.

Slick Design, High Quality Materials And Robust Construction

JTX Fitness have ensured that their product is built from durable and robust materials, to provide users with a sturdy machine.  It is safe for seniors to use and anyone who normally has trouble participating in intense workouts due to injuries and weaknesses.  Because it requires very little exertion to use it can actually help you if you are suffering from stiffness and/or pain.

Comes Equipped With 8 Preset Workout Programmes And 198 Vibration Speed Settings

Obviously we each have different levels of physical fitness and strength and JTX Fitness have been careful to take that into consideration when designing this vibration and oscillation exercise plate.  There is therefore, a amazing 198 different speed settings that allows you to adjust the speed of the vibrations and oscillations to meet your own personal level of strength and fitness.  If you are just starting to use this form of exercise after a long period of no physical activity or have never really participated in a focused form of exercise – you can start off on a very slow level and alter it as you become more comfortable and able.

There is also 8 pre-programmed workouts to choose from that will save you time faffing around with the controls if you are just looking to get on and exercise.

Easy To Use Control Panel And LCD Display Monitor

As is almost the standard these days with home gym equipment, the JTX Fitness high power vibration and oscillation plate features a very easy to operate control panel and very clear LCD display monitor.  You can use the control panel to adjust the speed of the vibration and the oscillation as well as the duration of your workout.  You can also select the previously mentioned 8 different training programmes from this module.

A LCD display is essential if you are serious about your training as it enables you to keep track of your progress.

Accessories

  • Straps for arm toning
  • Vibration plate DVD
  • Workout poster
  • Personal trainer vibration training plan with phone support

Dimensions

The JTX high power vibration and oscillation plate is not the smallest or lightest on the market and measures at a width of 75 cm by a depth of 75 cm and a height of 143 cm.

Pros

  • Made from robust and sturdy materials
  • Suitable for a maximum weight of 160 kg
  • Powerful motor with a peak power rating of 4000 Watts that is also incredibly quiet.
  • 2 types of training – vibration and oscillation
  • 198 different speed settings
  • 8 preset workout programmes
  • Easy to use
  • Easy to setup

Cons

  • It is very big and very heavy (this is the downside to it being able to carry a maximum of 160 Kg)
  • Not foldable and can’t be easily stored away when not in use

Customer Opinions

Using the online reviews left by customers who have actually used a product, such as this JTX Fitness high power vibration and oscillation plate, is always a good idea as it gives you a clear look at the good points and bad points.  It’s clear that a large majority of users of this vibration and oscillation plate had very positive experiences, as it has notched up over 20 reviews awarding it the full 5 star rating on Amazon UK.  One customer for instance, commented that he and his wife had both seen definite results from using it and always felt great after their 10 minute sessions on the machine.  In fact, after just 3 weeks using it, his wife had already lost several pounds.

Other customers also experienced positive results from using the machine.  It was not just the actual benefits that received high praise, but the actual design and sturdiness despite being big and heavy, also was commended.  As too was JTX Fitness’s customer service team.

Summary

To conclude this review it is worth taking a moment to review all of the above.  The JTC Fitness high power vibration and oscillation plate promises a high intensity workout suitable for users of all levels of fitness and appears to actually deliver just that.  Although it is larger, heavier and less compact than a lot of other machines on the market, the upside of this is that it has a larger maximum weight capacity.

Looking at the customer reviews, the manufacturer’s information and the price, if you are in the market for a high powered machine that will give you the high intensity workout you desire, the JTX Fitness vibration and oscillation plate could be just what you need.
