      Hi Joymaria - the French can't be wrong smile

      We have a small flat plate style machine people are using at home here and a friend purchased one recently. I have used one of the large machines at a gym a few years ago and went too hard out and suffered afterwards.

      I do know that the machine  i tried this july was not the same as the power plate a machine that i was not able to tolerate because of the vibration; gave me such a headache. I just wrote to friend in france to get name of machine. It also required a trainer to monitor exercises, posture, settings etc. I cld not imagine using it by myself at home. So i think we mite be talking abt dift machines

      I will leave it till I joint a gym again in a month or two.

      Cheers.
