Im winding my way away from reviews/giveaways & lolloping lovingly toward more plain ole MizFit musings.
Writing what’s in my heart without thought to did I promote XYZ well enough? will they be happy with my post?.
All that disclaimer to say:
I wanted me a fitness trampampoline. A lot. I sought this sucker out. I was very curious if it would be something the Tornado & I would enjoy during the raging heat of the Texas summers or if it would gather dust in the corner.
Please to enjoy our reactions to the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline model 350f.
What did we love about it?
- Easy assembly. Im the woman who will beg to pay extra so she can buy the floor model of a recumbent bike. I long not to have to assemble a thing. It’s part lacking in the assemblage gene & part fearing Ill assemble incorrectly & end up injured as a result. The trampoline went together easily & I had no moments of panic over whether Id done it properly (or extra pieces!).
- It was sturdy. This thing is not cheap (it retails for 360.00), but I’ve purchased many ‘not cheap’ fitness items which turn out to be very flimsy. The specifications state it can be used by individuals up to 250 pounds and it feels like it, too. I’d also semi-anticipated the Tornado might break it after her first jumping session (she be overzealous that way) and she didnt even make a dent.
- It’s a great workout. I named this blog MizFit only because MiredInAFitnessRutofEnormousProportions.com felt too long. Suffice it to say I was coresore coresore the next day and obviously need this change in my routine.
- It’s fun for the whole family. And friends. The DVD was “fine” (we skimmed through it for ideas) but we had more fun taking turns and issuing challenges. This free form trampolining (jumping jacks, wide jumps, close jumps, running on the trampoline etc) was more fun for the Tornado & her friend *AND* worked the
hell out of my UNACCUSTOMED to this kind of exercisebod quite well.
What did we not love?
- Nothing. The trampoline is precisely as described: sturdy, silent, stress-reducing and a convenient core & cardio workout. The accompanying DVD is a dated looking, but the moves are easily learned so we wouldnt have used it much regardless.
- It is a little pricey–but you get what you pay for. Of course I wish I were the Oprah of JumpSport trampolines (You get a trampoline! And YOU get a trampoline!) but Im not. In many instances with regards to fitness equipment pricey is a negative. When I am jumping up and down on something repeatedly Id prefer to pay more and know I am safe.
I wanna add here I really try and never take items for review if I cant get one to giveaway.
I took this one. I loved this one. I’d spend my hard-earned money on this one and I can redefine the word
stingy frugal at times.
I’ll use this. The Tornado will use this. In the heat of the summer we probably watch far too many mid-day movies around here and I *love* the fact she’s now begs to JUMPY! if the TV is turned on.
And you? Have you, too, been curious about the indoor rebounders for us adult-types?
Have you tried them? Got any tips for me
to avoid constantly needing to peewith regards to exercise & safety?
