I am a single mum to a disabled child, I have no way to be able to go to the gym or even for a jog.

I was wondering if vibration plates are worth it? I'm tempted to buy one!

Has anyone had results from using one alongside slimming world? Or would I be wasting my money

See if you can try one before committing to any expenditure. There is a VibroGym machine at the gym I go to, and although I do use it (my trainer insists!) and it does help by intensifying whatever exercise I am doing (particularly if we are targeting specific muscles) I don't think it makes much difference to weight loss. And I absolutely hate it!!

Hi Louise
I thought about buying one of these before sw!
I have heard mixed reviews about them- I think they are more effective used as part of your exercise rather than alone.
If I were to buy a piece of equipment for the home I think id opt for a cross trainer, so you can do some exercise that you know will work.

one thing about Vibro-Gyms/Power Plates is that you need a really secure floor, ideally something more solid than floorboards otherwise you could really have issues with vibration travelling through the house/causing damage to any ornaments/TV/anything you really don't want to break having a little mishap :s

one you buy fi#rst(reviews etc) as some are known for breaking down etc
