Part 3: Powerfit Review – Pros and Cons
Pros for the Powerfit Vibration Platform:
- You get a guaranteed warranty of 12 months which gives you protection in the event that there are any problems. Plus, you can get another 2 years added to this which generally cost for less than £15 which is definitely worth it for a total of 3 years protection
- Ideal for people who have specific conditions which don’t allow them to walk or jog as much they would like to – this offers a solution for a specific type of individual who cannot exercise as normal people can do
- Ideal for people who struggle to find the time to do weekly 30-minute sessions as this Platform only requires a total of 12 minutes per week (3 minutes 4 times per week)
- Instead of buying it from someone you cannot trust, it is available from a reliable supplier namely JML who can be easily contacted and are always available to answer your call.
- As there is no running involved, there is no impact on your ankle joints or knees as there is zero impact on your joints to worry about
- It includes all the instructions you need to get the most out of it and a healthy eating plan is included as an additional bonus.
Cons for the Powerfit Vibration Platform:
- The price for this platform will set you back in the region of £300 so you will need to plan and save well in advance for it. Some treadmills can be bought for less than £300 and they can offer a lot more in terms of cardio exercises, walking and actual jogging.
- The warranty won’t cover cosmetic damages or faults such as scratches or general wear and tear and it certainly won’t cover any accidental damages
- There is a lack of clinical proof and research for some of the solutions that it claims that it can offer
- It doesn’t offer a free trial period which would be better so you could test it out for yourself if it can really work for you.
Part 4: Conclusion and Feedback Submission
While this Powerfit Vibration plate is not for everyone, it certainly can help people who cannot exercise in the traditional way of walking or jogging or running or for people who simply do not have the time for regular workout sessions due to work and family commitments. My own preference would be to stick to a healthy diet, cut back on the carbs and alcohol and to work out 3 times per week in the outdoors and get some fresh air in the process.
It won’t work miracles and don’t expect to see ripped abs after using it but if you are unable to work out in a regular way as mentioned already, then this will certainly benefit you in losing weight, but you also need to pay attention to your calorie intake and diet also each week.
There’s no point in expecting to see improved results using this Platform if your calorie intake has increased significantly – you are simply undoing the work that the Powerfit has done. So yes, I would recommend it but you also need to have realistic expectations in what it can offer you and the possible results you can get. Plus, it is extremely important to control your diet and do some regular exercises in conjunction with it also if possible but overall it is certainly worth giving a go in our view.
Have you any personal experience yourself with using a Powerfit Vibration Platform? Did it operate as expected or did you experience any problems with it? Did you get the results you were after?
