The Flex Mini® vs. Farfalla

Farfalla is a fitness device that employs vibration to enhance physical fitness, muscle tone, and otherwise enhance physical performance. Available from Slim Vibes, Farfalla is one of multiple models available from the company. According to Slim Vibes, Farfalla supports something called \"vibration training.\" According to the website, vibration training with Farfalla will contribute to muscle strengthening, increased blood circulation, improved flexibility, and a boosted hormone profile. The Farfall is simply one of Slim Vibes’ options for accomplishing this type of fitness improvement.

For those who have not seen a vibration trainer, the Farfalla looks something like a big scale you’d step up onto. It is a large platform that is perhaps wide enough for a shoulder width stance. It features a digital display that rises from the front of the platform to meet the user at the waist level. Handles are provided. Farfalla offers 2 hp with a frequency range of 0 to 50 Hz. It uses triangle oscillating as well. With 30 levels of speed, 3 programs, and a manual setting, users can tailor their workout. Farfalla can also measure body mass index.
