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).
