All of our machines can be delivered within the UK, some self assembly is required, clear instructions and tools are always provided to make self assembly minimal.

Size of the plate

The machine works by the user exercising whilst standing (sitting or kneeling) on the vibration plate. Therefore the bigger the plate you have the more room you have to exercise in comfort, a bigger plate will also allow you to perform a much more diverse range of exercises. It’s important to remember that a bigger plate requires a bigger motor.

Motor size

All vibration plates are powered by an electric motor, the more powerful the motor, the more powerful the plate will be. If the machine has more of a powerful motor it will be capable of providing stronger vibrations under heavier weight conditions for a longer period of time. Motor speeds are quoted in watts (W) and you can find this in each products individual description.


basic Vibration plates will operate at a single frequency it’s important to remember that the higher the frequency the better the machine will perform, a machine with a varied frequency plate has the capability of vibrating at different speeds, different speed setting deliver different health benefits, this allows for a more varied workout and better physical results.


The amplitude of a machine reflects the distance the plate travels whilst vibrating and is measure in mm. Generally the higher the amplitude, the more intense your workout is going to be. All of our product descriptions show specific amplitude data.

Size and weight

The first thing you should consider when it comes down to buying a piece of home gym equipment is the size and weight of the item before you commit to buying anything. If you have limited space it might be an idea to consider a compact vibration plate, which can be easily stored away when not in use.
