I love my Bellicon. I work from home as a medical transcriptionist , which involves prolonged sitting. I also cannot be far from my computer or phone. I get on the Bellicon every hour if not more often when not busy to keep myself moving throughout my workday. We all know sitting for long periods is harmful to our health. I have had other mini trampolines but none of them compare to the quality of the Bellicon.
I've been a gym rat most of my adult life but lately the equipment and atmosphere don't feel so healthy. Been getting injured on the machines and don't like waiting for people to vacate the station I need so I heard about the Bellicon from a friend and took the plunge.
What a fantastic feeling to be on the bellicon...It's like a mercedes compared to other mini trampolines. Quiet and sexy..the way I like it. 20 minutes feels like all I need per day and it's fun. My cancelled gym membership pays for it nicely. I use the Bellicon 360 videos to get ideas for my workouts.
I'm nearly 65 and have been dealing with a Vestibular (balance) disorder 24/7 for 19 years. bellicon is truly helping with my balance, energy, fitness and overall health. I am able to use this rebounder daily, despite arthritis, Morton's Neuroma on my left foot and a torn meniscus in my right knee! It is low impact and fun! Did I mention I'm a very firm size 4? I only wish I had known about it 20 years ago! Thank you, bellicon!
My husband and I bought the middle sized model for our home gym because we both have joint issues and found through extensive research that rebounding was a great low-impact, high intensity workout. We LOVE it. We love it so much we bought a second one. This one is the smallest version, and we went with the folding legs this time. This little (and it's really not that little) baby is behind my desk at work so that when I need a break but to have time or the social acumen for a walk around my building, I just hop on for a few minutes. I am learning to deal with the strange looks and questions, and I am so grateful to have it here. Bought TWO you say?! You must be rich, and money of no object. No, this is so far from true. We are lower middle class recent college grads with student loans and many other bills. We did this because we have to get in shape and we have to have a fun way to do it or we won't stick with it. The frames have a life-time warranty, and the accessories have good warranties as well, so I figure we can't actually go wrong with these. We reviewed a lot of the "cheaper" brands and there is nothing that compares to the experience and value of the Bellicon. We simply decided to invest in our heath what others invest in cable TV (cost wise).
Simply put: it's everything you've seen the positive reviews say. It's SO much smoother than a steel-spring unit. It's SO easy to use it for long periods of time due to the gentleness of the bungee-springs. It clearly is helping me with lymphatic stagnation health problems. The price is a bit of an issue, but yes it is a great mini-trampoline, the Rolls Royce of a so-called rebounder.
I have had total knee replacements for both knees in 2012 and 2013. I was really disappointed with the constant ache in my legs and the limited mobility. After much research, I decided to get a 49" bellicon. Within a few months my ache was gone and I can actually jog on my bellicon. The bellicon did more for me than 2 1/2 years of PT!! My back is also much stronger. Just get on it and do whatever you're in the mood for - a good health bounce, calisthenics, run, workout with weights - whatever! Combined with my Fitbit, I have lost over 25 pounds and have dropped 4 sizes! I've been especially pleased by losing that tough inner thigh area! I can't express well enough how much my bellicon has changed my life for the better. Thank you!!
