Amazon customer reviews for Shake Weight

  • Got this as a fun gift for my wife. No more losing grip or arm strength in our house! LOL!
  • I have ordered this for my wife and, to be honest, I was skeptical about it. This is too light for me but great for her.I was pleasantly surprised when I gave them a try. I used them at the end of my drop set. 8 reps of 40lbs, 30lbs, 20lbs and finally 10lbs curls with no rest in between. Then in the end I took these over. WOW.I found that they focus on other parts of the arm as well. Especially the forarm. Good addition to the gym.I sincerely hope that you would find my review helpful.
  • The media could not be loaded. Â My mom still has the original shake weight so I was able to compare it to this one and this one seems less substantial and lighter. I actually like how lightweight this weight is because it’s easier to use especially for one arm exercises. There is a strong plastics odor that I’m hoping will fade out soon. The recommended usage is 6 minutes a day but after only 2 minutes my arms were burning and I could really feel my muscles getting fatigued. I’m going to aim for 5 minutes a day to get ready for tank top season. Highly recommend if you want to tone up your arms and chest area.
  • If you want toned arms, especially in the muscles that move things toward and away from your head, this is perfect. It’s just like the videos; the product videos, someone out was thinking of something different. Trombone players, above the waist short range frisbee throws, people who throw darts often, all of them can take their game up a level with this long slender dumbbell
  • While I haven’t had a chance to use this device very long, I have to admit that I’m impressed with how well it works. I had seen these weights on TV in the past and thought that there was no way they worked, but now that I have one, I am singing a different tune. The information in the product description indicates that the weight is a different brand than what was sold on TV years ago, but the weight comes in a retail package that calls it a “Shake Weight” and has the ‘TV’ emblem on it to indicate that it was sold on TV.The weight seemed to be in good shape although the box was a little dusty. So, I wonder how long it had been sitting on a shelf. The instructions included with the weight only talk about the safety aspect of using the weight and not actually how to use it. There is a website included, but when I attempted to go there, it was redirected to a different URL and could not be found. I was hoping to find some instructions on how to properly use the weight to work different muscle groups, but there was no assistance online.There is a stamp on the box that suggests that a free training DVD is included, but there was nothing in the box with the weight. There is also information on the box that states you only have to use the weight for 6 minutes a day. Out of the box, I actually couldn’t complete the six minutes. You definitely start to feel the muscle tension after just a few minutes of using the weight.This weight actually seems like a decent piece of exercise equipment, but I wish that better use instructions were included. You can search for them on YouTube, but I feel like an exercise guide should be included with something like this.
  • I’ve been using this shake weight for a month and have seen no noticeable improvements in my upper body. I have maintained my normal strength in my upper body which is of note, but i see no gain.
  • I like the size of the shaking Weights and the colour. Easy to store away when not using. I appreciate the poster giving you various proper ways to use the weights. Very handy! And the arms are toning nicely.
  • I got this so I can exercise while I’m sitting at my desk and this is perfect. I originally tried using a regular barbell, but it was clunky and not very fun to use. This thing is perfect for me. It really seems to work, too. I’ve only been using it a few weeks, but my arms are getting nice and toned as swimsuit season is approaching. I wish I had gotten one of these years ago!
  • I like this product a lot. I have bat wings and I see my wings toning up! My arms hurt after the first 15 minutes but I see an improvement already! Always wanted one of these and I’m impressed
  • I’ve had this for a few days and used it every day so far. I cannot do 6 minutes consecutively with one arm yet, I have to alternate because I really start to feel the burn after a couple of minutes. I haven’t used it long enough to see results but I’m hoping it won’t be long. I have used it while walking, standing and sitting so it’s pretty flexible. I wish it came with a video showing different ways to use it, but I have figured some out and hopefully will discover more ways to get maximum benefits. I thought it was a little pricey but it is sturdy and doesn’t look or feel cheap and will be worth every penny if I can get my arms summer ready.
  • What a nice workout to use these shake weight,the more workout this the calories too burn.
  • A gift for my daughter. She’s very pleased with them. They’re comfortable to use. They are also very good value especially for the price. Great buy !!
  • I did not like the product. I will get more use out of exercising with a gallon of water. Waste of money.
  • Came damaged and side cover falls apart too soon
  • This one is pretty decent…. It works well and its still working after 9 months….
  • Very easy to use and it really does work my arms out. There isn’t any instructions on how to properly use this shake weight inside the box, so you’ll have to use youtube to find the instructional video for the 6 minute workout which shows you the proper techniques to effectively use it.
  • I am not sure of the effectiveness of using the shake weight daily as I haven’t used it long enough to begin seeing results…but I will say this product fits the description and lives up to the hype. It’s sturdy and easy to grip. Somewhat pricey in my opinion because you only get one but not too bad overall. I also like how easy it is to store.
  • The media could not be loaded. Â New exercises idea, my wife likes it a lot, but when you shake the dumbbell, the plastic emits bad smell, definitely not good for your health. The device’s function is good, so I will seal it in a bag to use.
  • The media could not be loaded.  I actually like this weight. At first I thought it was a ridiculous idea but I had to see what all the hype was about. Turns out it’s actually a nice/different kind of dumbbell exercise workout. I like switching things up and working out different muscles. Nice way of toning up my arms without making them all bulky 🙂
  • Very easy to use right out of the box. Good for the price and it really works…you just have to put the actual work in it because it does not shake on it’s own
  • Works great and isn’t to heavy. Sturdy piece of equipment that’s actually fun to use while getting in shape.
  • This product is perfect for me. Not too heavy and I am able to do repetitive movements.
  • The media could not be loaded.  Really cool idea for a workout. Always seen the shake weight on TV but never got one personally until now!It’s very easy to use. Take it out of the box and shake. Couldn’t be easier!There are many good videos on YouTube to help with these workouts. Personally I just walk around and shake it ! But there are lots of different exercises you can do to help build muscle and reduce fat.
  • It’s the perfect weight and I love the grey color that it is. It’s easy to use and you can feel it working.
  • Great
  • Had seen this on TV before and was excited to receive my new shaking-weight dumbbell.Sleek ergonomic design. Material and shape make it very easy to fit in your hand and give it grip.Great buy, have added this to my daily workout routine.
  • Pretty, but it was not what I thought.
  • It is better just to get a normal dumbbell.
  • This Shaking Weight Dumbbell works really well. It’s a great exercise and makes your arms burn. There are exercise video for the Shaking Weight Dumbbell that will have every part of your arm burning. This is a full arm workout device and when using with the videos on YouTube, you’ll definitely see results. I think it is beneficial to have 2, one for each hand but you can get away with using just one. I have added this to my regular workout routine and it’s been great!
  • works great, helps to get more definition in your arms
  • It’s a nice size and it’s really easy to use even though I still haven’t gotten it to shake while using it but it still is usable.
  • an east workout but i just feel silly. I actually thought this shook on its own. makes since tho.
  • This a great addition to the work out equipment we have at home. It’s pretty easy and convenient to use.
  • This weight is well-made and sturdy. It is a “shake” weight. The box was dusty when it arrived like it had been sitting somewhere for a very long time. It says on the box it comes with instructional DVD and it does not. There are no instructions of any type. It is a heavy and large weight (13” long). It says to use six minutes a day (I guess just shaking it). The weight looks like it has been used and it is dusty as well. I believe a person should receive new merchandise. I should not receive an old or used item. I found the weight too heavy for my use. I want to build up my muscles a little, but I will have to start with a smaller weight.
  • I bought this a while back and have been using it here and there. A few days later my roommate found an original shake weight at a thrift store and bought that for me. So now I can compare it. The one from Amazon definitely feels like cheap plastic but its not too bad. Shaking it is a little tough but not as tough as the original. It is slightly bigger than the original and yet it weighs the same. Def recommend this.
  • This is different from regular dumbbell the shaking giving different experience I like to do it with my regular exercise activities and it is very easy to do it.
  • This dumbbell is super easy to use! It’s very comfortable and easy to shake giving you the ultimate workout for your arms! I’m recommending it to all our friends! It’s a great start to a home gym or to just keep along side a yoga mat for some light cardio!
  • I use it in my every day at home workouts and it adds a nice little challenge. Love using it
  • Good weight. Good arm exercise.
  • Esta muy dura y no se si ayuda a hacer el ejercicio lo correctamente
  • It will break after only a short bit of usage (or at least that’s what happened to me). It’s not sturdy or durable at all.
