Good compact machine
By Happy Shopper
from Toronto, Ontario
This machine is something to augment one's exercise routine. I like doing weights and wouldn't give them up but find the Body Vibe machine really does help with circulation and you can actually feel it working on the muscles. It does take getting used to so I would suggest a "go slow" approach in the beginning. The small footprint of the machine is a bonus as it takes up little room and is ready for use at any time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love It Love It Love It
By dragonfly Girl
I am not really an exercise person but I love this machine I use it every day. It is so simple you don't have to do anything if you don't want to just stand there!! The Body Vibe does all the work. I feel good more energy. I do a back stretch that does wonders for my back with the crushed disc!!! The only thing I would say you should watch is if you have a tendency to suffer from m0otion sickness it may take you a few days for that to pass after that you are good to go!!!
My husband and I did a lot of research regarding the Body Vibe machine and when we saw it on TSC we bought one immediately. It worked great and we also felt good but within 30 days the motor stopped working. We returned it and purchased another one from another fitness store for a great deal and much better quality.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
BodyVibe Personal 500 whole body vibe wi
By fly girl
I bought this product as I am having some issues with my MS. I stand on it daily for 10 minutes. The only thing I am not sure about is that it will cut out entirely every couple of minutes when I first start. But I love how this makes me feel and am now able to stand on it in my socks so it makes my feet feel wonderful. So glad I got this

Disappointed and Not Informed
By Deb the Groomer
from Hamilton, Ontario
Disappointed that no mention was made that people with joint replacements can't use this machine. I had to read the manual to find out. Difficult to put together and floor exercises were impossible. Really disliked the Face cushion. You put your face on the cushion on the same place your feet and behind have been!! Why is there not a "Spa" mat or something to put on the main piece so all the stuff off your runners is not vibrating into your sinuses?I had to return it because I couldn't, use it. So much info given during your commercial but just as much left out.
from Vancouver BC
Bought this machine because my two sons have a progressive degenerative neuro muscular condition. No cure only treatment is exercise. This is wonderful for them and for me. Why is it so great. Let me list them.Not noisyeasy to move and takes up little spaceIs energizing and soothingWorks great on the faceIncreases circulationEasy to use

Go slow to get used to vibrations.
from Keremeos, B.C.
This is a great machine and I feel will do everything the Dr. said it would. I'm a very fit person and have led a very active lifestyle and so far have had no problems getting used to the tremendous vibrations, but for those not as fit I think a go slow.. take your time and let your body adjust attitude would be prudent. I use it for a few minutes everyday, not primarily for exercising, but for health benefits i.e., circulatory, improving bone density, etc. I use my aero pilates machine everyday and certainly wouldn't give it up, but including the Body Vibe really seems to be improving my overall sense of well being. A wonderful purchase for someone wanting to get into shape but at the same time address general minor health issues. All my friends are trying it and reviews are great.
Not for me...
from London Ontario, Canada...
I did the P90X program and loved the results. I thought this item would multiply the exercise result but I found it took too long to get set up with it and I lost my "pump" and cooled down between exercises and that is not cool...pun intended. Machine was returned. I am certain it is a worthwhile machine for someone not going for the same results I am looking for.
I really like this machine
We have had it for about 2- 3 weeks and I really like it. Everyone in the family has used it and will continue because it is pretty effortless. I have noticed a difference in my body and face already so I can't wait to see the difference in 4 months when I go on vacation.
Not for those with artificial joints
I ordered this product a year or so ago after watching TSC. At no time did anyone mention that people with artificial joints should not use this machine. Watching today (Feb. 1st) it was stated that those with serious illness should not use it, but did not mention artificial joints. I had to send it back when I looked at the manual that said people with artificial joints should not use the machine.This should be stated on the promotional so otters would not get caught as I did & have to send it back. Too bad as it looks like an exceptional piece of equipment for those with movement restrictions.
