'Today' Show Anchors Can't Stop Laughing at Craig Melvin and Savannah Guthrie Working out on Vibrating Plate Live on Air

Craig Melvin and Savannah Guthrie's attempt at a New Year's resolution health kick got off to a shaky start. Last month, the two starred in a viral clip from Today where they tested out some home fitness equipment on the air – including the AXV Vibration Plate. The talk show broke down into hysterical laughter as Melvin tried to keep his balance and get a workout on the device.

Today's resident fitness expert Stephanie Mansour joined the show to show off some equipment that could help the people at home reach their New Year's fitness goals, and the hosts were her test subjects. Some of the equipment was quite standard but the "vibration plate" stood out. It is essentially a platform that shakes and buzzes while the user stands on it, challenging their balance for forcing them to utilize more muscles to stay upright. It is meant to be used during exercises like squats and pushups to make them more challenging, but Melvin and his co-stars had their doubts. Guthrie also tried it out but Hoda Kotb, Al Roker and Carson Daly were too busy laughing.

Melvin himself was wary enough as he first stepped up on the device, though that quickly turned into appreciative laughter. At the same time, the other anchors began shouting out quips. When Mansour said that his muscles were working much harder this way, Daly added: "It's not just his muscles working," which made Guthrie double over in laughter.

"Whoa, you should see it from behind!" added Roker who was standing on the opposite side of Melvin. Daly added: "I can hear his spare change!"

As Mansour continued to turn the vibration up, Melvin clearly began to struggle. Finally, he stepped off the machine and invited his co-stars to try it. Guthrie was the first to take him up on it, and she was laughing immediately. All in all, none of the hosts seemed convinced that this kind of machine would be worth purchasing.

The other products in the segment were a bit more straightforward. Mansour showed off wearable wrist and ankle weights, pilates equipment, yoga equipment, dumbbells and barbells. She also displayed equipment for athletic recovery, including massage tools and sauna suits. Of course, wearable fitness trackers are also helpful for many activities.

The Today show is on a fun streak right now, and fans are ecstatic to see the whole cast back together at last after Roker's extended medical leave. Many commenters on this video remarked that this was exactly the kind of content that gets their morning off to a good start. The show airs on weekdays at 7 a.m. ET on NBC.
