Power Plate Move vs Personal Power Plate

Find the Best Power Plate for You

You've done your research and know Power Plate is the brand for you. With Power Plate being the world's leading medically certified harmonic vibration platform, we know why you would want their vibration machines and think they are the best on the market. 

But you still aren't sure if the Power Plate Move or Personal Power Plate will be best for your workouts at home or in the office. We want to give you the similarities and differences of each one so you can make the best decision. 

The first thing most look at is the price. The Move is $2,995.00 (on sale now for $2,396) while the Personal is $1,795.00 (on sale for $1,436). This is quite the difference between both. The other key factors in determining which one is best are below.

These are the best vibration machines to use at your home or office so find the right one and start the Power Plate journey!

Power Plate Personal and Move — What's the Difference? 


  • The first thing you will see is the difference of price. The Power Plate Move ($2,995.00 - on sale now for $2,396) is quite a bit more than the Personal Power Plate ($1,795.00 - on sale for $1,436). With that wide gap in pricing, some people will go for the Personal since it cost less. You will not be disappointed with either choice though. If you have the money to spend, get the one with more options, the Move. 

Size of Surface Area

  • The Power Plate Move has a 35% larger surface area than the Personal. If you are worried about not enough surface area to work out on, the Move will be the right choice for you. With more surface area, you will be able to perform exercises easier. 
  • With less surface area than the Move, you will still be able to easily workout on the Personal. Whether it's push-ups, planks, lunges, or workout with the straps, you will feel the vibration working. 


  • The Personal weighs over 40 lbs. less than the Move with a weight of 40.4 lbs. It will be much easier to move the Personal around from room to room or bring it with you on a trip or to a friend's place for workouts.
  • The Move is still manageable at 87 lbs. to move around, but will be more tough to do so. If you have your own workout space at home or in the office, this would be perfect for you. You don't need to move it often and can only worry about working out with it. 

Time Selections

  • The Personal will have only two choices, 30 or 60 seconds, that can be adjusted with a remote control that comes with it. 
  • The Move has many more options with the same 30 or 60 second timers, but also has a timer of 9 minutes that can be used. This gives you a longer time to keep working out on the Move. 

Frequency Range

  • Just like with the time selections, the Move will have many more options to choose your frequency. With a range of 30-40 Hz, the Move has six different levels you can choose from throughout your workouts. 
  • 1=30Hz Low, 2=35Hz Low, 3=40Hz Low, 4=30Hz High, 5=35Hz High, 6=40Hz High
  • With the Personal Power Plate, you will have one preset frequency of 35 Hz.

Maximum Capacity Load for User

  • The Move has a capacity of 300 lbs. for a user while the Personal has a 264 lb. capacity. There is not much difference there, but if you are worried about the weight of users, go with the Move which allows for more weight.  

What Else is Included?

  • You will get hand straps (set of 2), a rubber mat, a remote control, power cord, quick start guide and instructions for use.
  • The Personal Power Plate also comes with a canvas carrying bag for traveling and for on-the-go workouts.

What will both Power Plates, Personal and Move, bring to your workouts?

Power Plate can enhance your workouts without compromising any performance. In fact, the Power Plate Personal and Power Plate Move can help you reach your goals quicker and more effectively.  They are whole-body vibration machines that are compact in size so you can use them at home or even in the office.

Both can be moved around to a different room in the house or bring them on the road if you are traveling and need a quick workout. If you are looking for a vibration trainer that you can incorporate into your home workouts, both the Personal and Move are great options.

Giving you a great combination of size and function, the Move and Personal amplify the benefits of smaller movements without the use of any weights. Workouts are low impact and available to everyone from elite athletes to older people. Both vibration machines will provide you with a total body workout in less time than your traditional exercise workout.  

Studies have shown that Power Plate users lose twice as much fat over six months compared to users who do diet and simple fitness alone. Adding either the Personal or Move will bring you to the next level by stimulating natural reflexes, increasing muscle activation, and improving circulation.

Both products will give you the patented Advanced Vibration technology that oscillates in three different planes (up and down, side to side, and front to back). Power Plate's whole-body vibration technology has been scientifically established to speed up health and fitness benefits to deliver faster, longer–lasting results.

Power Plate also has other products available including massage guns and rollers that will be perfect for your workout and recovery routine.
