What I find is that with rebounding on my bellicon I can get my heart rate up and maintain a higher percentage of Max heart rate without the pounding of my joints like on a treadmill. I have my treadmill on sale on Craigslist. I have a back injury, a compression fracture (stable) so I am allowed to rebound. This coupled with my inversion table are really make my back feel good!

I thought that I would drop you a quick line of thanks. I have finally begun a program of rebounding on my Bellicon rebounder. I'm at 15 minutes a day and shooting for 45min./day every morning. My energy level and circulation in my lower legs has improved greatly. After the exercise, my legs feel fantastic and I have energy like I took a 20 mile bike ride.

I cannot tell you how amazed I am with both of my new Bellicon rebounders!! Today, on the Bellicon Athletic, I had the best aerobic workout I've ever had on a rebounder: the firmer more stable mat was perfect! I was able to attain optimum heart rate in just 3 minutes; had an average of 82% maximum heart rate for 30 minutes (with a high of 87% -- 136 - 145 beats per minute), which is a perfect range for me! And I had none of the normal strain afterwards in my hips, knees or feet which I had been experiencing on my ReboundAir rebounder. I felt unbelievably great afterwards! And bouncing on my Bellicon Bungee Rebounder three times a day is having an extraordinary impact on my whole nervous system and Chi Body -- I am totally "blown away"!!!I am very grateful for your expertise in understanding exactly what would best serve my needs. Thank you so much!! Love,- Jon
