    i use this at the gym and it is really good. i always ache after! it helps tone up but can also help with weight loss. Obviously not by doing just this. I had an induction on it and the instructor said to do cardio workout before hand. Even if its just a 10 min jog! There are different positions which you can do to work different parts of the body. It has different vibration and speed lengths. If you go on the uk power plate website you can download some different positions. :]

    It will tone the muscles but sorry skin will either shrink (if you're young and haven't stretched it too far,) or not if you're an old bag like me!

    I wouldn't worry Julz, looking at your statistics (and your face!) you will be ok! I'm talking about much bigger folk than you!
