Love this machine
from British Columbia
I first used this machine in my Chiropractor's office. Both Dr's used the machine every day for exercise benefits. I have MS and my legs will spasm, especially at night. I take medication to help with this, but I don't like to take too much of meds. I found that if I got on the machine, usually at 2am when my leg would start hurting or spasm, stay on for 5 min, I could go back to bed and fall asleep for the rest of the night. It's amazing how it "calms" my leg and enables me to go to sleep.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

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.

****LOVE, LOVE THIS BODY VIBE*!!!!!!***
from Thunder Bay, Ontario-Canada----
*****I have used my new Body Vibe Personal 1000 for several days now and I truly enjoy the work out**!!! This vibe is exactly what I have been wanting for a long time. When the price is right, we receive great value for our money &this is it. Standing on the unit with the different speed levels is perfect for my legs and feet. Afterwards, I like the sensation and the return of circulation..I plan to use this unit everyday, and I will be happy. Great to see all the routines and positions on the chart. I LIKE THIS VERY VERY MUCH..!!!!*Thank you--TO BETTER HEALTH FOLKS..!!!****

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.
