I want to thank you for providing the BEST quality rebounders on the market! I am a homeschooling mother of four beautiful girls.
We ALL love our Bellicon and use it every day. The kids love to jump and dance on it. I do one solid 30 minute workout and a couple short sessions lasting only a few minutes. I have tried walking and jogging on our treadmill, a stationary bike and Pilates. Rebounding is by far the most fun and the most beneficial workout.
In fact, I've never looked forward to exercising until I bought my Bellicon two years ago in 2008. I love the fact that I get a TOTAL body workout, bones, muscles, cells and all! It just plain feels good! Rebounding has given us more strength, better moods, and vibrant health. I recently took a few weeks off of rebounding to see the effects. It's been a few days back to rebounding now and I cannot believe the change in muscle definition in my legs, rear and stomach now that I'm back. My eyes are brighter. I feel better. The other very important difference is I sleep like a baby when I rebound. If I don't rebound, I toss and turn and get up every two hours.
Rebounding has helped me to look forward to sleeping instead of dreading it. My 9 year old daughter always enjoys the gentle bounce before bed to help her unwind and get a better quality night's sleep. And I can't underestimate the benefits of cleansing our lymphatic systems each time we bounce as well as strengthening all of our bones! I know that rebounding has strengthened our immune systems as well. We have not been sick for over a year! The last memory of sickness I have was over a year ago when Celia came down with a fever close to 104 and felt sick and tired. I was worried because when Celia would get sick it usually turned into something really bad like pneumonia. I had recently read a book on rebounding that said if you do the gentle bounce with feet on the mat for 2-3 minutes every hour you can triple your white blood cell count which I knew would help fight off the virus or bacteria. I held Celia's hands while she did the gentle bounce for 3 minutes every hour followed by water and rest. I took her temperature shortly after the bounce and was surprised that each time she would finish the gentle bounce, her fever would go down a little. To my amazement, by the end of the day, she was feeling good and the fever was completely gone. It seemed to good to be true. I told all my family about it but I've not had another chance to test it out because we've all been in such great health rebounding every day!
