The Soloflex Story
Soloflex revolutioned the home fitness industry with the introduction of the Soloflex Muscle Machine in 1978.
You can’t stay healthy if you don’t stay strong. You’ll age prematurely if you don’t stay strong. You lose your protection from injuries if you don’t stay strong. You won’t look as good if you don’t stay strong. We strongly suggest you stay strong.
Lot’s of things make you lose muscle. Getting older is the main reason. Every year past our 40th birthday muscle starts disappearing. You need to lift weights just to maintain you muscle.
Any type of anaerobic exercise will build muscle. Anaerobic exercise gets your heart pumping, and gets you breathing hard. Wind sprints, squatting with weights, weight lifting are anaerobic. Jogging isn’t. When you push yourself hard a signal is sent to every cell in your body to grow stronger. Not just muscle cells – ALL cells. Use it or lose it is the message.
NASA and the Russian Space programs started using WBV years ago to help pilot’s muscles from atrophying while in space. It worked. Soon after, trainers and doctors began to see the great benefits WBV could offer professional athletes. Professional sport franchises have widely and enthusiastically embraced the concept, including American football, ice hockey, baseball, and soccer. Not only can WBV help reduce the time a workout takes it also aids in faster muscle growth, better flexibility, better blood circulation, reduction of sore muscles, improved balance, even healing injuries. Less time, better results, easy to use, safe, aids in any routine; what more could anyone want?
Until now, the price of WBV platforms have made them available only to professional athletes, government agencies, and celebrities. Commercial units can run as high as $12,000. The Soloflex WBV Platform is only $445. Soloflex, Inc. has brought weight lifting to our homes for 30 years with the best built safest equipment on the market. Over one and half million Soloflex machines have been sold to date. Now with WBV you can continue your routine in a lot less time with better results.
The Soloflex WBV Platform is built to last. Made of 3” steel tubing legs, thick urethane molded foam pad over 15 ply-wood that can hold up to 1200lbs, the best quality motor and rheostat; just like the Soloflex, it will last. The size of the platform is another important reason to look at Soloflex. The platform is 41” long, 10” wide, and only 5” high. Small enough to slide under your bed. It weighs only 31lbs. This is much larger than most all other units on the market. Most only measure half of that in length. The size is important to allow all exercises: Pilates, Yoga, general stretching, and weight lifting. Speaking of lifting weights and WBV, hand weights are a perfect fit. The Soloflex Adjustable Hand Weights are the best on the market. Rubber coating makes iron plates safer, quieter and nicer to handle. The comfortable hand grips protect hands and improve control of the weights while exercising.
The range of vibration on a WBV should run between 28hz and 60hz. Soloflex WBV Platform does just that. The Soloflex WBV comes with an adjustable rheostat so you can find your perfect level. The perfect level is what you’re comfortable doing. Change from exercise to exercise if that’s what you like or keep it the same for every exercise. It all works.
We also offer the vibration motor separately. You can easily attach it to workout equipment you already own. Just peal off the tape on the mounting plate and stick it on. Customers have added WBV to all sorts of things; exercise bikes, treadmills, steppers, chairs and of course, to their Soloflex machines, Rockits, and free weights benches.

I purchased a WBV several months ago and absolutely LOVE IT!!!! I won’t know the impact on my bone density for at least a year but have already experienced exciting results with muscle tone and strengthening. I’ve also noticed that my clothes (especially jeans) fit better and looser around the hips/legs. Thank you………thank you………thank you.
p.s. I started out using my WBV approx. 10 min/day, 5-6 days/wk. and now average 25-30 min./day, 4-5 days/wk., following the exercises in the instruction booklet, some with hand/leg weights, plus several yoga exercises.”

I believe that everyone is different and what works for some may not work for others. I also believe that I was suffering from a sedentary lifestyle. I’m a commercial driver, 52 years of age and moderately above my ideal weight. I purchased the WBV with an open mind and some limited hope. I am now one of your biggest fans. I sweat. I am both energized and relaxed. Stronger, more “vibrant.” I feel SO much better! I’ve since read some of the information available on the internet relating to WBV both pro and con. The differences seem to be consistent with the information you have provided.
I am very much pleased with the results after using your WBV platform. One word to sum it up? Improvement. Yes the difference between how I used to feel and how I feel right now. I own a Concept2 Model D Rowing machine (which is sometimes used as a “men’s valet”) your WBV platform and dumbbells. Your price is excellent, quality so far is great. My rating as of today has to be EXCELLENT. Thank you! You got it right with this product.”
