We asked a handful of our customers to share what it’s like having bought their Vitamix through Life is NOYOKE.
Scroll down for their unedited responses, or checkout our Vitamix webinar video.
“Yes, Lenny, glad I bought my Vitamix thru you because you are family owned, lowest price, excellent customer support, recipes 😊 The Vitamix is great, should have got one sooner!”
“I knew I wanted to purchase a Vitamix after I saw a complete demonstration at Costco but I didn’t want to pay $499 for one. Some how found Lenny on YouTube where he talked about all the different models and what would be best for each individual. He even offered a free 15min call to answer all my questions. I use my Vitamix about 3 to 4 time a week to make my Mocha Frappachina.
Lenny even gave me the secret recipe from Starbuck which I tweaked just a little bit. Bottom line, Lenny came through on everything he promised. Any everything he said was true. I love my Vitamix that’s for sure and I’m glad Lenny was able to guide me along in the right direction. Healthy living,”
“When I began my search for a better blender, I came across Lifeisnoyoke which of course introduced me to Vitamix. The simple and hilarious videos that explained certain features and who would benefit most from them was really why I felt so comfortable contacting Lenny directly by email. He seemed like a friend or a neighbor next door that you could tell knew ALL about the different models and it would be faster to just tell him why I wanted a vitamix and which one was best for me and my price point (versus me spending hours and hours trying to research it myself!). Lenny replied back almost immediately and I believe I purchased the very next day. Once I received my machine and played around with it…I was still able to ask questions to Lenny as well as his wife Shalva, and the best part was getting about 10 new healthy recipes to go with my awesome new hero blender! The irony in my story is that my husband was so skeptical of this purchase, but now uses it more than I do!
Thanks Shalva and Lenny for all your hard work and always having the ability to make me laugh out loud when I watch you guys! Cheers,”
“With the help of Life is NOYOKE, I’ve been able to successfully begin a lifestyle of healthier eating and living! With all of the wonderfully informative videos, I chose the Ascent 3500 with no regrets. When I have a question, Lenny answers it; when I need a recipe, Shalva and Lenny have great ones. Plus, by purchasing through LINY, I really love contributing to a true Mom and Pop shop in return for all their hard work! Thanks Life is NOYOKE!!
I did want to tell you both that, not that I will ever be a true Vegan (Shalva:) due to my “old” age and cholesterol levels, eating a more plant based diet lowered my levels by 20 points in six months time. Yay! I still have a ways to go, but as you know, it takes time. Love my Vitamix for helping me accomplish good things so far:)! Blessings”
“We chose to purchase from you two because you offer a great combination of educational material, recipes on a website that is mobile friendly, and have a great sense of humor. Beyond that you two just seem like a couple we could be friends with and we love supporting a growing family;)! Last but not least you seem to have a great connection with the corporate office so I appreciate your trips there and you always seem to get fresh access to new products with timely updates. I could probably go on…”
“I found Life is NoYoke while doing an Internet search about Vitamix blenders in preparation for purchasing one. I found their videos to be entertaining, interesting and truthful. When I found what they were offering if you purchased thru them, it was an easy decision.
The Vitamix blender lives up to its hype.
I purchased a reconditioned A3500 model on sale which was a great deal. I ordinarily would not buy a reconditioned product, but Lenny’s recommendation took away any concerns.
I’ve made a lot of things with the Vitamix including fruit smoothies, almond milk, hummus, lemonade, Frappuccino and our favorite, garden fresh cocktail.
This has helped a lot with breakfast as I was tired of either eggs or cereal.
I’m not vegan get, but as a big time carnivore, my diet has improved a lot. Still more work to do.
Thanks No Yoke!!”

“I am one of those people that would really love to go vegan (I’m a vegetarian) but I’m faced with challenges (namely a spouse who won’t give up meat and my love of cheese haha), I really want to use my vitamix more – and I think if I do that it will be possible to have a household with 1 meat eater and 1 vegan enjoying meals together.
Something about your videos and your casual style caught my attention – I’m not one to sign up for alot of emails or anything, but I think between the “regular” food you make and the fact that you focus on the vitamix and using it for making real fresh homemade food is what did it for me.”
“My wife Micki and I are absolutely loving our new Vitamix. We use it almost everyday, sometimes three times a day. We use it mostly for smoothies, soups and nut butters but are looking forward to trying other things. Even though Vitamix provides a lot of recipes we gravitate towards the ones on your site. We have made five or six of your soups already and they are all outstanding. I’m going to make your new borscht recipe today. Trying to beat the Heat. I am also a vegan so I appreciate your website and newsletter. They help a lot and keep it interesting. Best wishes for you too and your little one on the way.”
“I purchased my Vitamix through Lenny Gale because I love their ideas and recipes! It was a simple process and I love making healthy, easy recipes with my Vitamix! Thank you Lenny for helping me be healthier!”
“Being one month post op from gastric sleeve having trouble with getting 64 oz of fluids and 50 grams of protein in a day. (Lost 43# so far – only 110 more to lose by July 9th). I read your blog and found honest inspiration for whatever one might be going through. In the corporate world for years I decided to stop and get healthy was a jolt for me. But now I know I’ll never go back. I work from my home as concierge to corporate people. I love it. I look to you to share your thoughts and I will soak up your knowledge with hopes of a brighter future for us both. I like what I read so far.
Thank you for being there at the perfect moment.”
“I spent most of last night and some of this morning reading your website, thanks for all the awesome information!!!
My fiancé just decided we need a Vitamix because our pediatrician told us smoothies would be a good way to get vegetables into the 7 year old. He has experience with protein shakes and whole food smoothies and used to have a ninja bullet. My experience with protein shakes is adding the powder to milk in a shaker cup or in my $30 blender with a banana. After reading your website I see how a Vitamix would benefit us and can see us making whole food smoothies for the 3 of us. Thank you for your help.”
“When we decided to buy a vitamix, we came across LINY website. Instantly, we loved it. Why? So many reasons!
Lenny and Shalva are a young couple who make a living selling Vitamix. They respond to our emails instantly. Believe me, we send them a lot of emails, especially in the beginning when we were doing our research. They are very knowledgeable (and know the inside scoop) of everything Vitamix (including when things will go on sale). Their videos are fabulous, non-pretentious, easy recipes and best of all… plant-based! We use our reconditioned A2500 daily and it is on a prime real estate in our small kitchen. Thank you so much, LINY (Lenny and Shalva). Keep up the great work. 👏👍”
“If you are thinking of getting a Vitamix, I highly recommend getting it through Shalva and Lenny!!
I owned a 80’s Vitamix and more recently a Blendtec. I was unhappy with both. After coming across LINY videos on youtube, I decided to take the plunge,,,,,again. I could not be happier. The A3500 is awesome and the help I received from Shalva and Lenny made all the difference. They are happy to help you get the best machine for your family and their cookbook, online class, and videos have made all the difference this time around. You can’t go wrong with the vitamix and LINY to help you get the most out of your machine.
Thank you Shalva and Lenny!!!!”
“It was an easy decision to buy through you guys. When I began researching what blender I was going to buy back in late March, I knew it was going to come down to a Vitamix or a Blendtec. Being unfamiliar with the Vitamix models, I decided I was going to look at their newest product line. Life is NOYOKE was one of the first search results when I looked for reviews for the Ascent A3500 and I began perusing your website just to learn more. After looking through the recipe index you have, I was sold back in March that I was going to use your affiliate code because you guys had something that appeals to me – being healthy and being vegan. Although I’m not vegan, I keep Kosher and find that vegan recipes work very well in a Kosher home (for one obvious reason – it’s Parve!). More importantly, I’m trying to keep healthy lifestyle and would rather cook myself instead of going out. I’ve always had struggles with my weight and I found myself relating to where you were coming from with bad eating habits developed by working in corporate life. Seeing as I still live that lifestyle, I wanted to find a way to improve my life without leaving what I enjoy doing for work.”
“I have been a long time Vitamix owner, having purchased my first machine over 25 years ago. My husband and I like Vitamix so much that we also purchase one for each of our 2 kids when they moved out of the nest.
So after 25 years of daily use, our Vitamix finally died. We could have had it fixed, but we decided to just get a new one. Usually we purchase our units directly from Vitamix, but at the time I was looking, I couldn’t find an acceptable price on their website. After searching on the internet, I stumbled across Life Is NOYOLK. What a lovely surprise! Not only did Lenny and Shalva list the best deals available anywhere on the internet, but they also have plenty of videos with model comparisons, recipes, and just great information! I was pleased to give them my business because they both seemed so sincere and knowledgeable about Vitamix, and it truly is their passion to encourage other people to get one and use it!
Based upon my previous experience with Vitamix (25+ years of daily use with no repairs whatsoever) I decided to purchase a factory reconditioned 7500 model. It was shipped promptly direct from the factory, and when I opened the box, it appeared to be brand new. In fact, the only way I would have known that it was reconditioned was because there was paperwork that stated that it was. So, thanks to Lenny and Shalva, I saved hundreds of dollars and I am up and running with a powerful machine that I hope lasts as long as my old Vitamix. And after watching their videos, I have a few more Vitamix recipes to try under my belt.
If you are looking for a new or reconditioned Vitamix at a great price, give Life is NOYOLK a try. I’m glad that I did!”
“My wife and I (32 & 33) have been on a semi vegetarian diet for about 5 years. We never buy meat or fish at at the grocery store but occasionally eat it when we go out. We still have eggs and cheese at home as well. We would really like to take it all the way and settle in to an all plant based diet. I recently purchased a refurbished Vitamix to help us get there. I was searching for Vitamix inspiration and found your videos. We are excited to start the journey but are new to it and are still trying to find a routine that works for us. The kicker on top of it all is we have a 4 year old daughter that we would like to raise plant based as well so we need to find things to replace her favorite foods (eggs, pizza, bacon) and make it enjoyable for her as well. That’s pretty much it. We hope this can be a lasting change.”
“I came across your YouTube videos when I first started researching the Vitamix blenders. I’ve probably seen all of them by now, between getting stuck in the YT rabbit hole and on your site. You’ve got great energy on camera—there’s no bs, just doing what you can to connect with us lazy folks sitting on our asses.
As I explore more of LINY, I found much more than recipes. There was a whole new way of thinking about food and health (maybe it’s an old way, what do I know?). I just turned 54 last week and on that day made the decision to take better control of my health. Seeing those two ID badges side by side on your site (you’re a brave soul putting that out there! LOL) pretty much sealed the deal that I could now explore healthier options, at my own pace and for my own reasons. Ditch the Cherry Coke Zero (aaaaaahhhhh!), ditch the corn syrup (yes, please!), and try to squeeze more veggies into my life through Vitamix.”
“Right now I’m trying to eat better I’ve been a type 1 diabetic for 37 years and just recently went on a insulin pump.Everything has been going great so far what I’m trying to do is have a smoothie for a replacement for my breakfast. I’ve already lost 26 lbs and I want to keep going.Thank you for your wonderful smoothie recipes.”
“I hope this greets you well. My name is Matthew, and I have been doing research on the Vitamix for over a year. I finally decided to take the plunge (no pun intended). I ordered the Pro 750 and will be receiving it in the mail tomorrow; I am really excited. I so appreciate your videos and information on your website, because of that I decided to utilize your promo code instead of others.”
“I live with an autoimmune disease, ulcerative colitis. I get infusions of Remicade every 8 weeks to treat inflammation. After receiving treatments for two years, I was hopeful that things were getting better. I was completely devastated & shocked to learn that the inflammation had changed only slightly after having my colonoscopy.
With the aid of my daughter, (she also just purchased a reconditioned Vitamix), she helped me to drastically change my diet. I have gone organic, mostly gluten free, & try hard to stay away from refined sugars most of the time…… which is really hard when you love chocolate!!
While I’ve been working on changing the way I eat, my doctor had doubled my Remicade treatments to see if that would make a difference with the inflammation. Honestly, going for infusions every 8 weeks for the rest of my life is NOT something I want to continue to do. Four years of my life has been dedicated to this treatment, & with my next colonoscopy at the end of this year, I want to get off the Remicade. I am doing everything I can by eating real, whole food to heal my body naturally.”
“Life is No Yoke helped me figure out exactly what Vitamix setup I needed to upgrade to. With the addition of a third child to our family baby food was once again on the menu, and the A3500 Ascent machine with the 8-oz blending bowl setup has been a dream come true. The ability to make tiny servings for our baby is just awesome, and the first time we blended steamed pears in it we were blown away by the result – perfectly aerated, professional-grade baby food! With Life is No Yoke’s professional insights we’re all set with the perfect Vitamix setup for the next decade at least.”
“I had a Ninja blender for a couple of years that stopped working. I started looking at the Vitamix. When looking I came across lifeisnoyoke. I really needed answers to my many questions. Between emails and you tube videos I had them answered.
Finding the right Vitamix for me was easy with the help from Lenny at Lifeisnoyoke. To me it only made sense to buy through them. I even saved money purchasing it through them than in the stores.”
“I bought from Life is NOYOKE for a variety of reasons including the model comparision/recommendations they provide, the tips on when to buy, the free electronic cookbook, and their commitment to the product and lifestyle. Very happy with my purchase through Shalva and Lenny.”
“I got a Vitamix through LINY, because I had watched so many of their videos trying to figure out which one to get. It seemed like they really knew everything about the product!
When I narrowed it down to two models, I decided to call the company. Lenny, unexpectedly, answered the phone! I thought it was pretty cool to be able to get his opinion, firsthand.
The Vitamix I decided to get has been a great choice! If not for LINY, I wouldn’t have known where to start! Thanks to their expertise, I have a blender that I use daily to make healthy smoothies for my whole family!”
“Thank you! I love that you two are taking the plant-based approach to the Vitamix, and that’s what sold me on buying through you… that is, of course, in addition to your fun approach, winning personality, and great story together!!
My husband and I took the plunge to go whole food, plant-based nearly 5 years ago, and it has been incredible. Hats off to you two for bringing that message for health, the animals, and the environment to people through Life is NOYOKE!!
All the best of health, success, and joy to you both!!”
“Thank you Shalva and Lenny. Your The Life is NOYOKE YouTube channel helped me decide getting which model to get based on my budget and needs. It was a wonderful surprise to get some discounts when purchasing through your website. Now, I’m not a Vegan but I really like your recipes, which support my move to a healthier lifestyle. Your videos are fun and made it easy for me take the plunge into getting a Vitamix.”
