Nordic Track / Proform® V7 Vibration™ Vibration Machine isn’t worth the low price

The NordicTrack / Proform® V7 Vibration™ Vibration Machine (MSRP $999) is affordable, but sometimes if you cut too many corners the savings isn’t worth it. This is one of those cases.

This is basically the same machine as the V3™, but with an added upright column and handlebars. Dumbbells are included, which is a nice addition, but overall this is a machine to steer clear of.

We scored the Nordic Track / Proform® V7 Vibration™ Vibration Machine 63 out of 100 on the vibrationplatereview.comgrading scale because it simply doesn’t generate enough vibrational power to force muscles to react.

We didn’t feel the effects that you’re supposed to get from vibration training on this machine. At this same price point, a much better option is the Nitro Fit Personal Vibration Machine, which has the power needed to work your muscles properly.

Hypervibe G17 PRO Gravity Resistance Training machine is way over-priced

Steer clear of the Hypervibe G17 PRO Gravity Resistance Training machine (MSRP $3,495), which has scored just a 64 out of 100 score from vibrationplatereview.com

The lofty price tag is way overpriced for a machine that performs like many we’ve tested that sell for around $1,000.

The Hypervibe G17 PRO Gravity Resistance Training machine utilizes pivotal vibrations, which we are not generally fans of. This style of vibration machine gives you some of the benefits of vertical vibration for half the price, making them more affordable for the average person.

For around the $3,500 that the Hypervibe G17 PRO Gravity Resistance Training machine sells for what you could actually get a good vertical vibration machine, which would be much more beneficial. Vertical vibration is the preferred style for elite athletes, such as NFL and NBA players and Olympians.

The Hypervibe G17 PRO Gravity Resistance Training machine has a big color console screen, which is obviously a big reason for the hefty price tag. However, we’d recommend investing in quality, functional workout equipment over units with flashy electronics.

We like the Hypervibe G17 PRO Gravity Resistance Training machine’s
weight of 170 pounds, and the “swan neck” design of the upright column allows for good room to exercise. However, the big upright also adds a lot to the footprint of the machine, which could be a nuisance of your workout area is cramped for space.

PowerVibe® Pro 2™ Vibration Machine is outclassed in its price range

There’s a good amount of competition among vibration machines priced around $2,000, but the widely marketed Power Vibe® Pro 2™ (MSRP $1,995) just doesn’t match up to others in this class.

The PowerVibe® Pro 2™ Vibration Machine has earned a 64 out of 100 score from vibrationplatereview.com. It’s PowerVibe’s first model that uses an upright column and handles, the frequency level up to 50 Hertz is a good feature and the two years parts warranty is solid.

However, we have problems with the low overall weight of just 99 pounds, which is a big reason why the machine feels wobbly to exercise on. An upright column can be a good thing for balance, but in this case the middle cross bar made us feel cramped for space while using the machine.

It’s an average machine with an outdated look. You can do better if you have around $2,000 to spend on a vibration machine than the PowerVibe® Pro 2™.

Noblerex K1 Platinum overpriced for small, pivotal vibration machine

The Noblerex K1 Platinum (MSRP $2,775) is a pivotal type vibration machine that has one of the more visible presences in this class of fitness equipment. It’s widely marketed online and through independent distributors.

Noblerex K1 Platinum

However, just because the Noblerex K1 Platinum has a big presence doesn’t mean it’s a good machine. In fact, the opposite is true.

The Noblerex K1 Platinum is lightweight at just 98 pounds, which means that any user who weighs more than 100 pounds has a potential tipping risk if the lean back for an exercise. If you weight 200 or more pounds, well obviously the stability of this machine is almost non-existent.

NordicTrack / Proform Activator V3 Vibration Plate

The NordicTrack / Proform Activator V3 Vibration Plate (MSRP $550) follows a common script for entry level machines.

While you purchase a vibration machine for an extremely low price, you get what you pay for.

The Nordic Track Activator V3 comes up short in overall weight (68 pounds), warranty (three months) and low overall frequency level (maximum 35).

DKN V Power Vibration Machine has considerable size issues

DKN V Power Vibration Machine

Our review staff at vibrationplatereview.com likes the DKN Technology lineup in general, but we’re not real crazy about their DKN V Power Vibration Machine.

DKN V Power Vibration Machine

DKN V Power Vibration Machine

The DKN V Power Vibration Machine (MSRP $1,250) scored just a 67 out of 100 score from vibrationplatereview.com largely due to size issues.

We like the price and the vertical vibration style, but the overall size (23 x 41 x 45 inches) and physical weight (75 pounds) is below average.

VibraWav Pro XT doesn’t deliver on price tag

The VibraWav Pro XT (MSRP $2,799) is a good machine, but for the price point there are many other better vibration plates on the market.

VibraWav Pro XT

VibraWav Pro XT

Receiving a 68 out of 100 score from vibrationplatereview.com, the VibraWav Pro XT has about the same power as the lower-priced Nitrofit Personal and comes up short in other features.

It does have a solid overall weight (148 pounds), but another complaint is the misleading advertisement that the VibraWav Pro XT achieves 50Hz capability. It’s a pivotal machine that does not actually vibrate. Continue reading

Consumers advised to steer clear of WAVE Contour Plus Vibration Plate

WAVE Contour Plus Review

WAVE Contour Plus

WAVE Contour Plus

The WAVE Contour Plus ($4,800) has many disappointing aspects to it.

The WAVE Contour Plus, which was given a VibrationPlateReview.com score of 89 out of 100, has surprisingly few workout options to choose from. There is only a high-low setting.

It’s also difficult to get in touch with the manufacturer if there are mechanical problems. Wave products are sold through online retailers — not the manufacturer — and a Wave website or technical support could not be located. A reputable fitness company should have a customer support phone number readily available on a website in the event of questions or problems.

The Power Plate pro7HC (MSRP $15,000) is made for healthcare and rehabilitation type facilities in the medical field. It has earned a VibrationPlateReview.com score of 90 out of 100

We like the overall weight (416 pounds) and size (38 inches x 46 x 61, width x depth x height). The platform size of 38 x 37 will give you plenty of room to exercise, while the 25-50 Hertz frequency range provides plenty of power. It’s rated for use by people weighing up to 500 pounds.

The heart rate monitor with ANT+ capabilities is unique to the Pro7HC and is a great idea to have on a vibration machine.

Call the Power Plate Pro 7, which has received a VibrationPlateReview.com score of 91 out of 100, the Cadillac of vibration machines.

We love the overall weight (410 pounds) and size (38 inches x 46 x 61, width x depth x height). The platform size of 38 x 37 will give you plenty of room to exercise, while the 25-50 Hertz frequency range provides more than enough power.
