The Soloflex Story
Soloflex revolutioned the home fitness industry with the introduction of the Soloflex Muscle Machine in 1978.
Losing weight can be one of the most challenging things we do for ourselves; the mental and physical challenges can be almost too much to bear. One important thing to remember is that weight loss can lead to muscle loss. Muscle gain is vital to fat loss. Fat loss is the ultimate goal, not weight loss. Muscle weighs more than fat so you want to measure your size verses your weight.
Starvation diets and fads are only going to jeopardize your overall health and cause a lot of potential lifetime damages to your liver, metabolism, skin, hair, kidneys; the list goes on. For every 10lbs of muscle you gain, you will burn 500 more calories. That is everyday at rest. That can lead to serious fat loss. Your diet always plays a part as well. You have to Eat Right and Exercise to properly get to the size and physical appearance you are shooting for.
Don’t feel like it can’t happen. It can happen. Many people lives actually depend on starting a new life that includes Eating Right and Exercising and we can help. Soloflex has been creating beautiful bodies for 30 years and we are now making it easier and more affordable than ever. No more excuses!! Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is the way. Start a routine with WBV or add WBV to your routine and you will achieve your goals. Even if you simply start by standing on the WBV Platform you are beginning your muscle building/fat loss routine. Add weights and you are increasing your muscle gain in even less time. What WBV is doing for your muscles is involuntarily forcing them to contract and relax thousands of times per minute – building muscle for you. Just like when you lift weights the muscles will contract and relax. Lift weights without WBV and you are only targeting the muscle you are working. Add WBV to your lifting routine and you are engaging 100% of all of your muscles.
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 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.”

This is our 3rd purchase of a WBV. One went to my mom, our original one went to a friend, and now we need a new one, as the friend fell in love with the effects of the WBV and we didn’t have the heart to ask for it back. Thank you again for such a great product!”
