I watched many many videos, read review after review, and then decided to go for it and get the bellicon 44" plus with foldable legs and the t-bar. Cannot be happier!! It was an investment in my health and I recommend it to anyone who's considering getting a mini trampoline. Don't buy the el cheapo "as seen on tv" versions. You won't regret getting a bellicon!
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.
