The Flex Mini® vs. Ultra 6100

The Ultra 6100 by Slimvibes is a whole body vibration training machine that is said to not only increase the effectiveness of users’ workout regimens but also to promote overall health improvement. The premise is quite simple. The Ultra 6100 is basically a platform with an upright handle and control system. Through the means of the control system the user chooses his or her vibrating program. The platform vibrates continuously in three different directions. This activity is said to promote both a relaxing massage sensation as well as amplified muscle toning benefits, among other things. The user can either do various exercises while using the Ultra 6100 or he or she can simply stand there, receiving passive benefits, so to speak.

Consumers can purchase the Ultra 6100 directly from an online retailer called Slimvibes. They sell the apparatus for $2,499 on their website and include with it a free training poster. This would seem to instruct users regarding the various upper and lower body exercises that can be performed with the Ultra 6100. The device is covered by a two year limited warranty and there is a 7 day satisfaction guarantee policy. Shipping for the Ultra 6100 is free. However, Slimvibes only ships to Canada and the continental U.S.
