I have just bought a "rebounder", I have heard they are a wonderful way to exercise and have many healty benefits.

Has anyone ever used one, does it help in losing weight. Would appreciate any information anyone has about them.

Hope I haven't wasted my money

My friend uses hers a lot and loves it. I had one and it was really fun, but it made my knees hurt. Good luck!

I used to use one and enjoyed it - until one night when I came down "funny", twisted my ankle sideways, and ended up sprawled across the tile floor. Broke my foot. Needless to say, you couldn't get me on one now, so I strongly caution anyone who is going to use one to be very careful! One misplaced step, and you could injure yourself badly.

I've been using mine for a few months now. I like it. I don't find it hard on my knees or anything (I would find pounding the pavement impossible for that). As for weight loss, I haven't noticed a great deal (for myself), I feel more toned, but weight loss is simply a matter of using up more calories than brought in. There are a lot of articles on the Net that describe all the benifits of rebounding (I was surprised at how many benifits there are!). So, IMHO, you've made a good investment.

RE: Rebounding Exercises

I thought this was supposed to be one of the benefits...that it was easier on your joints and knees!?? I have been thining of one. I have seen some mini trampolines on sale locally lately for only around $20. Are these as good I am wondering as the more expensive Rebounder? I have seen the ones with the rail that attatches and I think I would like that to hold on to. Does anyone have that?
