My husband John is recovering from both hip and shoulder replacement surgeries within the past 13 months. He is doing great and has had no problems on the bellicon other than a little initial soreness...not related to prior surgeries....which has now completely subsided. I’ve noticed him watching my workout videos as though he might like a little more structure, more variety (and perhaps email encouragements, too) in his rebound workouts. He’ll be pleased to hear that he, like me, has been officially invited to be part of the bellicon family! Thanks!
Besides all the other health benefits that others have mentioned, the bellicon is wonderful for shaking out the tension after practicing the piano. I am a classical pianist and suffer from cronic tension in the shoulders, neck and arms. After practicing a while, I like to go and "swing" on the bellicon. It is great, releasing all the cramped up muscles. I love it!! After my foot operations are over, I am looking forward to really working out on the bellicon for weight loss and speeding up the metabolism!! Look out bellicon.....here I come!!!
