Human nature dictates that we all want something for nothing; we want to lose weight and gain strength without putting out any effort; and we desperately want to believe outrageous claims, even when we have been taught not to fall for sales pitches that sound too good to be true. Always ask for proof of said claim.
It is not surprising then that some of the ads for whole body vibration equipment would fall into the same category. At the Whole Body Vibration Blog we have been pretty consistent with our message to you: do your homework and try,before you buy.
Who doesn’t want to buy a machine that claims, “Most people lose between 8 – 20 inches the first week!” or this one…”Want to lose weight fast? How about 1 pound in 10 minutes?” Really? If you believe that claim, I have some great swampland in Florida to sell – a real bargain!
Sometimes the ads on re-seller’s sites like Kijiji, Craigslist, EBay and the Panic Buy ”Hurry! Before time runs out sites try to inflate the sales pitch by taking facts from high quality machines and saying a lower quality machine can achieve the same results.
Remember, if you want to stimulate your muscles and increase circulation and bone density you need to know which machines offer the most G-Force – because research indicates that low G-force vibration may not provide enough load to achieve the results promised.
For any exercise to be effective, you have to stimulate muscles to stretch and contract; and you have to make your muscles work harder than normal – you have to increase the load on your muscles – to see any results.
I am not sure which is worse: resellers that make false claims or those who want to sell a machine at a bargain basement price, quoting an INFLATED original selling price and saying it has more G-Force than it actually does.
Would you believe an ad that said, “My 4 cylinder Honda civic is the same one used in Formula One Racing!” Of course not!
So why would you believe that an inferior made platform is as good as a professional or commercial platform that costs thousands of dollars more.
Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
Don’t be fooled by imitations, false claims and phony promises. Get quality with an independently validated whole body vibration machine.
