Rated 5 out of 5 by MizS Delighted!
I'm very pleased with this purchase. It's everything I wanted and expected.
I have arthritis in the big toe joints of both feet and the bones of my feet are not as flexible as I want them to be. I've only had the machine for two weeks, but I've used it daily since I assembled it. First, after 5, 10, or 15 minutes it makes my feet, ankles legs, back and hands feel great. Secondly, I can tell that I'm gaining sensation in my feet. I'm not where I want to be yet, but I'm confident that my balance is going to improve as my foot joints gain flexibility.
I'm delighted by what regular use of this machine has already done for me. And I'm looking forward to the best of additional improvements my use of it will make possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bluebird609 Liking it more each day
I read all of the reviews before purchasing this and decided to try it. I am hoping that it will help my daughter who has chronic daily migraine and fibromyalgia. Although I found the noise and vibrations intimidating, I started gradually with the exercises given, working my way up to now being able to do them all, with some modification. I like either the straight vibe or the 4th mode. My niece, who is a rower, tried it and thought it was good for conditioning. My older daughter (24) tried it last night and has decided it is her machine! My dr who primarily uses altermative approaches like acupuncture, and has a sports medicine background, gave his stamp of approval and said he thought this type of treatment can have healing effects. the reason it is only a 4 is that I am still getting to know the machine and do not like the noise level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2panic Love this product
I really enjoy this product. I am a new yoga practioner and it is very helpful to use before I practice and the next day after a challenging practice to losen up. I also have used it for exercise and you can feel it working you a bit harder. I usually start at lower speed and then at highest by the end of the 10 minute pre-set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SaSa A Great Product
I was a little skeptical at first when I placed my order, but after using the Trainer for a month now, I really love it. I typically use the Trainer prior to my Yoga DVD and find that it helps my muscles stretch out and provides ease of flexibility.
Love the bands that provide a upper body workout as well.
My only complaint would be the plate is so hard and sharp when I put my hands on as shown for optional exercises.
But I would certainly reccomend to any and all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SLSw Works well for the whole family
I have fibromyalgia and bought this primarily for myself as a fairly easy way to fit in some simple activity even on some of my difficult days. It's proven to be even more useful than that! My husband uses it and has found it helps his low back issues. My 8-year old daughter uses it as well both for the novelty of it and because it helps with her sensory processing disorder needs. We're very pleased with it and would definitely recommend it to others.
