I'm 6'2" over 200lbs, 45 years old. I went with the 44" extra strong. I've had it about a month and I do 20 minutes a day. I truly look forward to it (unlike other forms of exercise). I feel like I have to do it every day and always plan for it, whether it's early morning or after work. I always feel better afterwards. It's easy on the joints and I can just picture the lymph flowing. I like bouncing outdoors, but indoors is cool too when the weather is bad. No excuses! My daughter loves it too. Looking forward to rebounding for a long time to come.
My 19-year old son, diagnosed with autism, absolutely loves his Bellicon rebounder! We have tried so many other rebounders, and my son would wear them out in less than a year. Along with the frustrations of the other companies not honoring my warranty due to his special-needs, there were dangerous aspects of having his feet fall through the broken springs and having the rebounder legs bend away from the main frame.
It's been several years now, and the only thing we've had to replace are the bungee cords. My son jumps on it many times every day. It helps him handle his emotions and creates a leveling effect on his moods. He jumps extra hard when he's happy and also when he's frustrated - his rebounder is the only thing in the house that really matters to him. He loves the extra springing jump, and he has had rebounders in the past that he refused to use because they weren't springy enough.
Thank you, Bellicon, for making the only rebounder that can handle my son's aggressive jumping and brings so much joy to his life.
ONE MONTH UPDATE: I really love my Bellicon. I bounce everyday throughout the day and have even hit 40 minutes a day with my favorite music. NOW.... an unexpected benefit has occurred for me. Before Bellicon I had some kind of neuropathy in my feet which made it very painful to walk outside on my lawn or driveway with bare feet.
I'm surprised to report that after one month of bouncing on the Bellicon.... the neuropathy is gone! In addition to that my body is noticeably more toned. In the past I ran 5 miles a day, 365 days a year and, pumped iron.
The feeling I get from my Bellicon is far superior to those activities. I'll never stop bouncing. ps....... my 7 year old daughter bounces every morning before school for a few minutes of fun. In reality, her bouncing guarantees that she is bright eyed and wide awake for her classes!
We are definitely a Bellicon bouncing family now.
Hi - I've been rebounding for the past six years on a cheap rebounder which I thought was great. I've invested on bellicon classes 3 months ago and all I can say is that its amazing, to the extent that I have just purchased a second one for my daughter. Yes, maybe a little pricey, but certainly worth it!
We bought this for our 8 year old autistic son. We live in the Chicago area so we were able to go the the showroom. We were reluctant to spend so much on a trampoline but we have gone thru many of them. This will be our last one. This thing is built to last, gives great bounce and is super quiet. We bought the soft bounce bungees and we will trade them out for medium bounce as our son grows. Nice people that work there too, in the showroom and in the factory where we picked it up.
I keep my Bellicon Premium with blue mat and orange bungees in my living room and it looks so pretty! It has not only helped me get fitter but it also has helped my Kindergartener. He uses it more than I do and it helps him burn off his energy in a good way, instead of watching TV at night, we make it a game about who does more jumps on the Bellicon and the kiddo always wins :).
I think I saw a growth spurt in the kiddo recently and I want to thank Bellicon for that. Thanks for the double win! :)
Well I just got my bellicon rebounder and I am SO impressed! I've been using a ReboundAir for the last 10 years and really enjoyed it. I just happened to go online for some motivation on rebounding and came across the bellicon website, after spending some time reading about it and watching the videos I decided to order one that night! It came today and the difference in the bounce is SPECTACULAR! I feel like I get a much better workout than I ever had on the ReboundAir. My little two-and-a-half year old grandson is loving it - and even though he jumped on my "old" one for the last few weeks - he is choosing to use the bellicon as the two rebounders are sitting side by side right now! I'm giving my old one to my daughter BUT SHE TOO is choosing to buy a bellicon! If you're thinking about buying a rebounder choose the bellicon -- you will be, as I am, very HAPPY!!! Thank you bellicon for a GREAT product, I'm more than pleased!
I just received my Bellicon (49") today. Took it out of the box, unfolded the legs and it was ready to go. I only jumped for a minute and I was in love. My 6 year old daughter started jumping and now I can't get her off of it! I can't wait to start jumping on it in the morning!
We bought our bellicon for our 4 year old son with special needs. He absolutely loves it! He we had the Jumpsport trampoline but it was too small and offered no cushion on the frame to protect our son in case he landed off center. Now that we have the larger diameter bellicon with a safety cushion, we know we made the smart choice. Having the option to change the cords as our son gets older to increase resistance is excellent and the bellicon provides a better bounce. Our son will jump on his rebounder every day. It is used during his therapy sessions as both a reward and for sensory skill building. Great quality and great service, I do not know what we would do without it. Thank you bellicon!
