I first heard about rebounding last year while listening to the Extreme Health Radio show. Rebounding is jumping on a trampoline, which I am sure many of us did as kids. I certainly have found memories of hanging out with my best friend, spending hours jumping and laughing on her trampoline during the summer months.
Fast forward to twenty years later. My partner and I went on a vacation and stayed at an amazing house we found through the Airbnb website. Not only was this home hidden in nature and surrounded by tall pine trees and mountains, but they also had a rebounder. This was serendipitous because on our drive up we had a discussion about rebounding and if it was something we wanted to try. Now we had the perfect opportunity to test it out.
By the end of the weekend, we were both hooked and decided to research a couple of the higher end models on the market. After listening to the above podcast, I knew that I wanted a rebounder that used bungee cords instead of springs. Bungee cords help to optimize the gravitational resistance that is exerted on every cell in your body as you bounce. While spring cords on a rebounder are much less expensive, they are also harsher on your joints because the shorter suspension of steel springs offers less elasticity.
Many people are enjoying working out on our bellicon trampolines. The ability to lose weight and have fun simultaneously has lots of fitness buffs clamoring for our trampoline, including the owner of Aubut Family Blog. She tried the bellicon trampoline and enjoyed the fact that it was positively fun, without feeling like a boring workout.
Well, apparently the German engineers behind the bellicon Rebounder (0-0). These unique mini-trampolines provide a workout for all of your 638 muscles simply by bouncing up and down, and use highly-elastic bungee cords, instead of metal springs for suspending the mat, giving you a "floating" feeling that other mini-tramps just can't provide.
Most people make some type of health resolution at the beginning of the year. Gym memberships become our ticket but are so costly and expensive! Simply put; the bellicon rebounder is hassle free and pays for itself starting at 9!
Christina Bonnington enjoys our Bellicon trampoline. Although she is a former ballet dancer, she found the workouts on the bellicon DVD truly challenged her. “About five minutes into my first workout, my calves and glutes were already screaming for mercy.”
Our DVDs help you broaden the possibilities. As Bonnington explains, you don’t have to use the DVD exclusively, you can incorporate other workouts when you are comfortable exploring your options.
As the days get shorter and the nights colder, we move our attention indoors. It’s time for trying out new recipes, reading intriguing novels, and finding creative ways to stay active. One way to keep the holidays from hitting your thighs is to jump on a rebounder. Not familiar with rebounding?
Our friend Meredith Fire-Hess over at FireWireBlog.com wrote a fantastic review on the craftsmanship and detailed design of the bellicon rebounder. Meredith reviewed a bellicon Color Edition 44' rebounder, and after owning numerous rebounders, she could see what the fuss was over the bellicon.
