I visited a friend in Malibu last winter and had the pleasure of jumping on his Bellicon. I was blown away! It felt so good to be jumping on it. It literally made me feel light, happy and exuberant. I determined I had to have one. He told me the Bellicon was expensive but the best on the market. I returned to NYC and did my own research. I was convinced the Bellicon was the only one for me. I have no doubt I made the right choice. I bought the smaller model with the foldable legs. The workmanship is unbelievable. It's the most sturdy thing ever and no stability is lost in the folding model. I love the fact that it's easily transportable but I wouldn't mind having a little more mat space as well. If I travel for extended periods- it's going to have to go with me. I so love my Bellicon that I could certainly see myself selling these babies. I truly believe everyone needs one and espouse the Bellicon's virtues at every opportunity. I can jump forever and feel so good and toned. I foresee jumping the rest of my life. I will be the 95 year old rebounder guru. By the way, I should mention that many years ago I bought a cheap rebounder 1/10th the price. It had springs and squeaked at every bounce. I hated it and gave it away after ceasing use. That will never happen with this one. Well worth the lifetime investment. Thanks Bellicon!
