Flabelos Vibration Plate FL-3000 Review
Note - the FL-3000 is the domestic version. Flabelos, a name that kind of sticks . Flab (the flab) e Los (loose) = Loose the Flab. Lol.|
Anyway on a more serious note, this plate struck us immediately as a vibration plate that will serve the entire spectrum of potential users, from beginners to the much more advanced exerciser. The vibration is oscillating, meaning it moves from side to side. The effect of this type of vibration is to create an instability that your muscles will resist against and therefore get stronger and more toned. Increased strength and tone lead to other benefits like weight loss and higher energy levels due to increased metabolism.
The platform of this vibration trainer is almost square, the column and handle bar are at a convenient height and overall it's a plate that is not overwhelming in its appearance. With that it does not take up too much space which can be a huge benefit.
The console is clear and easy to operate, overall the plate has a touch of class even though it might not look super stylish but it's the quality that impressed us. The manufacturer is Sanyo who specialize in body care equipment and even supply the medical rehabilitation market, so one can assume that sufficient research has gone into the engineering of the different Flabelos plates.
Our view: |
Good vibration plate that will take a beginner right through to an advanced stage. You get a feel of quality and durability when working on this plate and from a technical point of view it's well thought through and easy to operate. We would have wished for the platform to be a little bit bigger and there are no attachment sites for resistance straps.
All frequencies, intensities and exercise duration get set manually which we personally don't have a problem with, in fact we prefer to individualize workouts anyway. However for some people this might be a little disappointing. The accompanying exercise DVD is also a job well done, with some very useful instructions. Please see our guide to buying a vibration plate for help with the technical terms.
