    On a power plate? I have an illness that affects my muscles so most forms of sport are out of the question. Is it really as easy as it sounds to use it and get toned or just another fad that's to good to be true??

    I find it amazing for toning.

    I attend 30 minute classes 4 times a week.

    You need to plan your exercises well, to ensure you get the most out of it. Standing on a plate ain't really tone anything. Things like one leg squads for 1minute, push ups for 1 minute, and plies for 1 minute work a treat. Find between 20 and 25 exercises, and do each for a minute.
    If you can walk well after your session - you didn't push yourself enough! Hehe!

    No pain no gain. I hobble about constantly, and the results are fab!

    I personally find them good, but you need to be doing a proper workout before and during it or else there is no point. I use them in the gym with my personal trainer and they are really hard work :p

    If you have a medical condition you should consult a doctor before doing this as powerplates are designed to put strain on the muscles (the vibrations make the surface unsteady and your muscles have to tensen up to support your body)

    I know someone who used one (not properly) and she got a pressure sore on her bum. I laughed so much :p
