Weight Loss The Body Vibe in combination with a weight loss nutritional program gives the body the necessary nutrients and stimulation for optimum assimilation, distribution and utilization of micro-nutrients and calories. Body vibration enhanced exercise training improves the flow of blood and oxygen to the tissues, which enhances cell metabolism function. It balances hormone levels like cortisol or insulin resistance. It stimulates muscle contraction which increases lean muscle mass production and ultimately metabolism. Taking the Vibraceuticals while training with Whole Body Vibration ensures sufficient nutrient levels in the body and enhancement of the cells innate ability to convert calories into cellular fuel or ATP. • Research conducted at Sanaderm health clinic in Germany demonstrated that six months of training a maximum of 11 minutes on the vibration platform reduced cellulite by 25.68%. When combined with 40 minutes of aerobic activity, there was a 32% reduction of cellulite. • Over a period of six weeks, those who used the Body Vibe saw a reduction of 11.2% in their body fat in comparison to the 10.6% of those in the traditional training group. • The Body Vibe can allow one to burn more calories compared to non-active individuals. Those who use the Body Vibe had a net increase of 12% in their resting metabolic rate after 3 months. Anti-Aging The key to slowing down or reversing the aging process is to ensure optimum micro-nutrients at the cell level and vigorously exercise on a daily basis. If this occurs then the cell can produce more energy in the form of ATP for all the important cell functions. Optimum levels of ATP can reverse cell deterioration causing a rejuvenating affect on the vitality of the cell. Organs, glands, skin,hair and nails are all dependent on cell vitality for ideal function. One’s aesthetic appearance is directly correlated to optimum cell health and vitality. Body Vibe training combined with our vibraceutical protocols allows one to reclaim control over their body’s aging process. Medical Rehabilitation The Body Vibe’s affect on muscle, strength and and connective tissues makes it a safe and effective exercise alternative or an addition to regular workouts for maximum results. The cutting edge vibration exercise technology opens up new opportunity for people suffering with conditions such as: arthritis, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, Parkinson's Disease, cerebral palsy and stroke victims. It allows them to gain the benefit of exercise while staying within their personal physical capability. Physical therapists, medical doctors and chiropractors all report significant benefit from Whole Body Vibration enhanced exercise training. Regular use of these devices helps to restore strength, flexibility and range of movement both before and after musculoskeletal injuries and / or traumas. Vibration exercise training can also help to prevent injuries when used in conjunction with other conventional training methods. Sport Performance Dramatic increases in coordination, strength, flexibility and speed all help to improve the athlete's performance across all fields of sports activity. Even the brain is exercised through Whole Body Vibration, which improves the athlete's adaptive response to performance driven activities. Rapid adaptation to the stimulation from any challenging activity accelerates the learning curve and therefore the excellence in that particular sport. Warm ups take on new meaning as high levels of neurons and muscle fibers are jump started within in seconds of using the device. Fast twitch muscle fibers are recruited leading to explosive strength, enhanced muscular endurance, and improved agility. Rapid rehabilitation after injury is vital for professional athletes.

The study of whole body vibration (WBV) technology, as applied to fitness and sports training began with the Soviet Space Program. The Russians discovered that cosmonauts removed from the effects of gravity developed significant bone and muscle loss during space travel.
In an effort to stop this loss and wasting, the Russian scientists experimented with vibration induced muscle activation. Profound improvements in muscle and bone strength were obtained by using vibrating platforms to artificially super compensate for the future loss of gravity. As a result of this effect, Veteran Russian cosmonaut Valery Polyakov, a medical doctor, set the current world record for the longest continuous spaceflight when he spent about 438 days aboard Russia's Mir space station between 1994 and 1995. Comparatively, American astronauts Carl Walz and Dan Bursch training on conventional fitness equipment, were forced to cease their mission after just 196 days due to bone and muscle degeneration. Not until the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989, did WBV technology find its way into other countries. WBV technology is finally being embraced by NASA, Professional Sports Teams, along with many allied health, medical and fitness experts throughout the United States. Hundreds of thousands of people throughout Europe have been using this technology with incredible success for over a decade!

The Greatest Workout Ever!
from Stratford, Ontario
I was using one of these machines at a gym for a month and really found it was fun and you got great toning results. I decided to buy my own and am very happy that I did. I use it for 20 minutes every morning. It sure beats driving to the gym and back. It's soothing and I really enjoy my routine. I really missed it when I went on holidays for 2 weeks. I found it easy to set up. Just make sure you tighten the screws at the very bottom because with the vibration of the machine they were coming loose until I tightened them well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This jury is still deliberating
By Abbies Mom
from Hamilton (Ontario)
I purchased this in the early spring and have been faithfully using it almost every day for at least 10 minutes a day. I injured my knee about a year and a half ago and I have a little bit of pain in the area ever since. But by using Body Vibe 2000 I don't have much pain at all. I stopped using it during a weeks holidays this summer and definitely felt the difference. I also feel a slight improvement in my energy levels. I also bought this for Kegel excercises and I have found a slight improvement with it. On the downside there were no instructions on how to put it together and there was also no instructions on how to use the keypad. You had to read through the whole booklet to piece it together and even the terminology they used in the DVD was not what was written on the keypad. It would have been nice to have a quick reference guide for the keypad and have the instructions match the writing on the keypad. Overall I think I am more toned but because I bought it mainly for the weight loss benefits and that hasn't happened at all I am only giving it three stars. I would recommend it depending on what the person wanted to achieve but I wouldn't be enthusiastic about it.

My body is sensitive to the vibration and I have difficulty concentrating on movement, even when I go very slowly. The vibration also makes me feel pressured. Even on a rug it is noisy and that is a concern.I enjoy listening to the Mind Vibe CD, although while I'm on the machine it feels like there is too much to concentrate on.I would recommend this to certain people, it's not for everyone.

good, but not enough info
I got this product when it was a showstopper. Assembly took awhile as I found instructions a little unclear. In the original presentation, I don't recall seeing or hearing any type of specific comment about who should not use the machine. Once I started reading thru the huge manual, I discovered that someone like me (I have a condition which causes me to have periodic problems with vertigo) should probably not be using it. I had already started trying it out before reading the manual completely (lesson learned the hard way...read the whole manual!), and had noticed when I tried to go for more than a minute at a time that I was having some problems with this. It's amazing technology, does not take up much space, and does give your body a thorough 'wake up'...can feel everything inside from head to toe vibrating. I wish I had done, like a previous reviewer did, and gone to the bodyvibe website to check for who should not use the machine. There is a very specific list in the manual, apparently also available at their website, and it is not as simple as the presenter on TV appears to indicate (ie, if you have a really severe condition, maybe check with your doctor). My condition is not technically 'severe', but this machine was not for me. I had to send it back.I would recommend this to a friend only if they had first checked the bodyvibe website to be sure it was going to be OK for them to use. Presenters on TV don't always have time to list every detail about a product, but it would be more responsible to refer viewers to the website for more info. about this sort of thing...or better yet, include this on the tsc website.

I got this machine the last time it was a show stopper, and putting it together was not the easiest but I managed. I actually got results using this machine and my father used it for a week and the numbness in his feet subsided! I was skeptical, but now I am a beleiver!

Glad I bought this
I had some problems with my purchase and the company was excellent in resolving my issue. I am a big fan of doing whatever we can to keep healthy. I have many machines that end up in the storage shed but this one is going to be a keeper. Thanks Adele for all your help.

No How To CD's with my machine
from Brampton, Ontario
I ordered my machine when it was the Showstopper the last time and it came within a week or so. My husband put it together and hopped on. It was apparent right from the start, we would not be able to use this machine in our living room. I was sitting on the couch while he was on the machine and I was getting a workout too. Everything in the room was vibrating. We moved it to the family room in the basement, cement floor covered with carpet and nothing vibrated but the machine and my husband. I am terribly disappointed that the men and women workout DVD was not in the box. I phoned customer service, whom I might add, were not very accommodating or helpful and they were to get back to me, four days ago and I have heard nothing. She sounded like she would rather be anywhere else then addressing my question. I do not know if anyone from TSC reads these reviews here or on FB, but I am guessing the answer is no. When I shop on [@]and leave a comment anywere, someone always respons to my private email addressing each concern. Not so here. But I leave them anyway. It would be wonderful if they could hire someone to just read reviews, FB comments or phone calls and address them. Hopefully I will get my instructional DVD's or at least hear from someone about why I didn't get them. Having said all of that, I will try to do my best without them and then perhaps I will recommend friends try this machine. It's not much good if you don't know how to use it properly to get the most benefit.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
SIMPLY LOVE MY BODY VIBE EXERCISER
I have had this machine now for few days and am already getting addicted to it. I can't wait to get on it. This is one of the best investment I have ever made in my life. For the last few months I had suffered from insomnia but lately have noticed that I fall asleep very easily.Thank you Dr. DeOrio, listening to you about the benefits of owning the machine convinced me to purchase it and have not regretted purchasing this wonderful machine. As a matter of fact, I would purchase this machine over and over again.

Be wary of company
By Exercise Diva
I received the vibe last week and finally assembled it two days ago only to learn that I was sent a faulty handle bar/control panel. It's upside down. I even went over to my mother's to take hers apart to ensure that I wasn't doing something wrong. Now TSC is sold out and have told me to take it up with the company or return it to TSC. They have provided me with the number for Body Vibe which, interestingly, does not answer their phone nor do they even have a voice mail. I would be very worried about any sort of warranty with this company. Good luck with yours.
