It has now been a year since I received my Bellicon. First when I received it I was not very happy because the expense was way much than what I had expected because of the money exchange and because of the cost of shipping and of customs. Once I got over that - I started bouncing - but couldn't do more than 3 minutes at a time - I was desparate - I had no balance and my leg muscles were deeply hurting even after 3 minutes a day. Ho boy what did I get myself into...
But it wasn't long that I could go from 3 to 5 minutes and then to 15 minutes. Balance came back. Now I am dancing everyday on my trampoline. I put the music on and have a great time. My objective is to do 20 to 30 minutes everyday - but that rarely happens - most of the time I am way over that 30 minutes and having a great time!!!
So even if the beginnings are hard - keep doing it and in no time you will be able to fully enjoy your Bellicon!
The quality of the Bellicon is wonderful - it was expensive but worth every single $$$.
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!
All aspects of getting the rebounder were positive. There was a "qlitch" getting the shorter legs to arrive with the unit, but Bellicon-USA resolved completely.
I've had the rebounder for just over a month. I'm currently jumping 10 minutes 3-4 times a day. I've noticed I'm responding to the increase in proprioception during rebounding. My balance is better. The flexibility in my feet has increased greatly. This is translating into my posture and my gait. Time spent on the rebounder seems to increase overall energy. I'm pleased I made the purchase.
Purchasing my bellicon has been the best thing I have done for myself. I have done 3 important things.
1. Improved my balance
2. Lost some weight
3. My body is in better shape
I'm so happy with the quality of my bellicon and I always look forward to getting on it. Thanks for a great product.
I LOVE my Bellicon. Yes, it's expensive but so, so worth it. I want the best when it comes to my healthcare needs - and Bellicon lives up to my high standard. My only issue is that I wish there were more video variety that ranges from 30 to 60 min and the videos should be different, like Tabata-style workouts, HIIT workouts, balance/core/strength workouts, cardio workouts, some workouts alternating between using hand and leg weights, and multiple 10-min workouts that focus on all the above so I can add a bunch of different ones to complete a full 30 to 60 min workout, (like 10-min tabata, 10-min endurance, 10-min balance and strength...), etc. I have exercise A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder) so I need a lot of variety to mix it up to prevent boredom. :-)
It was packaged well. I am very happy how quiet and balanced I feel on it. I have been inactive for a year and was pleased to feel my calves start to get strong within weeks. I enjoy the instructors giving proper alignment for core. This is a worth while investment. So glad you thought of the design. I popped off one of the bands by mistake today and had no problem putting it back on. Im telling everyone but I can see on their faces they are apprehensive. My lymphatic system thanks you. Im 62 and plan on taking it as far as I can! :)
I'm 72, have had a balance problem since experiencing an inner ear issue in 2011. Because of asthma and mild COPD, I could only walked in the Spring and Fall due to higher heat and biting cold.
I decided to purchase a Bellicon rebounder with support bar knowing it could be returned it if it did not work out. It was the best gift that I have given myself to date. The results in only three months have been; more energy and stamina, improvement in balance and coordination and my massage therapist has noticed the difference in body tone.
Had routine check up last week with my primary doctor; numbers were all good, HDL (high density lipoprotein) was up ten points and I attribute that increase to using my rebounder. Life is good....
