I have never tried it, but it sounds wierd, haha. Also, excersising is extremely important for your overall health. Strength training for your muscles and bones, and cardio for your heart.

@bakerella:

Ok so I had to google it, because that site didn’t give much info. It does make sense in a way to me. It apparently works your muscles by contraction. Also if you are to do resistence training or strength training while on the machine it would force your muscles to stabalize themselves more creating more workout. I am still skeptical, but it seems neat to me. Why don’t you just try it out, the place must have a trial period no?

so it does work… kinda…

Supporters of this also tell you to also exercise and watch what you eat.

It does cause some muscle contraction which is a mild workout (but its only 7 minutes so not much of one), but mostly what it does is keep the person aware that they want to be healthy and they are more likely to watch what they eat and move more during the day (IE take the stairs instead of the elevator)

So really, most of the success people may have, is a change to their overall habits, not a result of the machine. The machine just causes people to be conscious of their habits

you would have the same result if you decided to do 500 jumping jacks each morning, and then watched what you are and moved more.

Had a thought… at $65 a month. hire a trainer once a month for the same price and have them weigh you and “check your progress” and give you a good workout and teach you something about nutrition and exercise.

Or, put the money towards a group dance class or other fun, moving, activity. Money is much better spent that way.

Sounds like a gimmic to me!  I hate working out and sweating but I’ve really gotten used to it lately and I’m starting to like it!

I’m studying to be a chiropractor and we actually learned about the physiology behind this a few months ago.  My prof even tried it for himself.  Some people think just standing on it will help you lose weight, which is totally wrong.  However, actually working out and and doing squats WILL help you lose weight faster than just doing squats alone.  The vibration makes you unstable so while doing exercises you have to recruit more muscle fibres to stabilize yourself.  That said, I would never pay 65$ a month to do it, cuz a gym membership would be way more effective.  But if you don’t like sweating and just want a quick boost, it does actually work.
