The concept of vibration to help with weight loss has been around for a long time. In the last few years, however, there has been a renewed interest as home fitness companies have introduced a raft of low cost, high spec vibration plate machines onto the market. These are designed, not only to help you lose weight, but also to achieve muscle tone and strength gain. If used right, they can be a great addition to your home gym.

In this article, we zero in on the vibration plate scene to bring you nine of the best vibration plates on the UK market. We’ll also reveal what you need to look for when shopping for a top quality vibration plate and answer your most pressing vibration plate questions.

Vibration Plate Buyer’s Guide

Here are the 4 top things to check when shopping for a vibration plate:

Max User Weight – The effectiveness, efficiency and durability of a vibration machine is closely related to the maximum amount of user weight it can comfortably handle. If you use a plate that is not powerful enough for your weight, you will inevitably be disappointed with the results you get from it. Always look for a machine that claims a max weight that is at least 25 kgs more than the weight of the heaviest anticipated user.

Type of Plate – There are two different types of vibration plate, categorized by the type of vibration they produce:

  • Oscillation Vibration
  • Tri-Plane Vibration

Oscillation vibration vibrates from a point of pivot to produce an oscillation vibration effect. With this motion, one side of the plate will come up as the other goes down. This is a good option for weight and muscle tone.

Tri-Plane vibration is a more advanced (and, therefore, more expensive) type of vibration plate device which produces vibration across three planes; back and forth, side to side and up and down. This type of plate is sometimes called a whole body vibration plate. It is a better option for overall fitness, including cardiovascular health improvment and for injury rehabilitation.

Size – The size of your vibration plate will determine how verstaile it is. If you are wanting to remain stationary on the plate, you will have different size requirements that if you are going to be doing a workout while upon it. Your room requirements will also be a determining factor when considering the size of your vibration plate.

Vibration Frequency – The plate that you choose should allow you to adjust the frequency of the vibration. In this way to will be able to customize your session to your speficic requirements. The size of the motor is an important factor when it comes to vibration frequency. A 50 hz motor will vibrate at a rate of 50 impulses per second. The greater the frequency, the more effective the workout will be on your muscles and the more calories you will burn.

Bluefin Fitness Vibration Plate Ultraslim

Bluefin Fitness Ultra Slim Vibration Plate | Lose Fat & Tone Up at Home | 5 Programs + 180 Levels | Bluetooth Speakers | Easy Storage | Sleek UK Design

The Bluefin Fitness Vibration Plate Ultraslim is the most popular vibration plate sold in the UK market. After reviewing it, we now know why. This plate is extremely compact, weighing in at just 19 KG. It delivers a 1000 W motor with 2500 W at peak power. This enables it to provide all of the vibration intensity that you will ever need. In fact, this device comes with 180 levels of intensity adjustment.

This allows you to make all the adjustments you need without having to bend down to the plate. Built-in speakers allow you to boogie away to your favourite sounds as you’re melting away the pounds. However, the quality of the speakers is not the best. That’s probably the biggest red mark we can give it, as overall the Bluefin Vibration Plate is a winner. We especially love its light weight and portability along with its extremely reasonable price point.

Vibration Plate Benefits

  • Muscle Toning – the rapid fire impulses that the vibration plate send to your muscles are like a mini workout. You will not get the same results as if your were performing an actual workout in the gym, but you will get some effect.
  • The vibrations pulsing through your body as a result of using a vibration plate will increase your calorie burn to help you lose weight. According to a study that was published in the Endocrinology Journal, the amount of weight lost as a result of using a vibration plate was similar the effects of using a treadmill for the same amount of time.
  • Enhanced Bone Density and Overall Strength – a study conducted in Belgium in 2004 found that regualr exercise on a vibration plate increased bone density in the hip joint while also increasing overall muscular strength. The study participants used their vibration plates 3 times per week for 30 minutes per session for a duration of 6 months.

Vibration Plate FAQ

Are vibration plates noisy?

Vibration plates can be noisy, depending on the quality of the machine. Generally, the plates with the highest power ratings will be the noisiest. Keep in mind, also, that vibration plates all emit vibration into the floor. As a result, the type of surface that you sit the plate upon will have quite a bit to do with the amount of noise that it produces. The best type of surface is a solid concrete floor. If you do have to put your plate on a wooden floor, you can reduce the noise level by putting down a mat first.

How long should you use a vibration plate for?

We recommend not staying on your vibration plate for longer than 20 minutes in a session. However, if you wish, you can do two sessions per day, spaced apart by a few hours.

What exercises can be done on a vibration plate?

The range and type of exercises that you can do on a vibratiion plate is huge. The exercises that you should do depend on what your goals are (weight loss, muscle tone ot strength gain).
