“THE BEST THING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY…”
Isabelle P., Toronto, Canada
I had been talking about getting a rebounder for almost a year, then for Christmas, my husband gave me a card with “the rebounder of my choice” written in it…I was extremely excited! I had looked on line and there was no question…the Bellicon was clearly the best rebounder on the market (although I had never tried it or even seen it for real). The plan was that our Bellicon should go in the basement for the daily work out. However, after reading about the benefits of short frequent jumps (2 minutes boosts the immune system for 1 hour!), we decided to keep it in our main living area and it looks good too!

That way everybody gets to jump on it all the time. Even after 3 months, it’s still a race for the kids in the morning to be the first one to rebound – and before every meal and after school and for all the friends too! With all this multi-person use, thank goodness it is quiet and doesn’t squeak!
I love the DVD that came with it, it gave me ideas on movements to do and now I jump on my own to my favorite music or while catching up on some audio books, TV shows, etc. I feel energized, toned and healthy. I even lost 12 pounds with the rebounding and some better food choices. I can’t say enough good things about the Bellicon. We have a treadmill, but won’t be replacing it when it breaks because this new, quiet, energy friendly, health and fitness equipment is simply the best!
Try for yourself! Have fun rebounding!
“I started rebounding on $40 trampoline I ordered online – I didn’t want to spend a lot in case it was a bad idea. I loved it. It was fun and effective, and I trained on it casually for about two years. It wasn’t until I started jumping on it every day that I realized that there was a problem. My lower back started to feel tight, and when I really tried to stretch it I realized that my lower back wasn’t merely tight, it was a little numb. Immediately I stopped jumping. Feeling stupid, I started reading up on low and high quality rebounders. I was already a believer and I knew that I wanted to keep rebounding”.

I tried out a bellicon. It was light, bouncy and definitely not jarring. Yet I really didn’t think that I could justify the high price tag for the bellicon, so for a while I was leaning toward the JumpSport. I couldn’t find a place to try out the JumpSport, so the only thing I could do was watch a few YouTubers jump on theirs. I could see that the bounce was not as smooth. Thanks to Saskia’s great customer service, I went ahead and bought the bellicon because I knew that I would be using it every day for years to come – if I didn’t get it now, I would eventually get it anyway.
I bought the 44″ regular bellicon in the weight class bungees above mine, screw-on legs. When I tried the 39″ with my weight class, it felt way too elastic for me, and a little scary. Coming from my old rebounder, it took a while to get used to the bellicon bounce. It bounced deeper down, and at first that was less fun for me. I realized that if I don’t want to go as deep I just have to widen my stance. Maybe I should have went with an even higher weight class bungee. Still, I got used to it, and I am sure that the bellicon has provided a much safer experience for my body. It’s easy to consistently jump on it every day because it just feels good. I turn on some music and jump until my legs don’t want to anymore, which ranges from 10 – 25 minutes. Once in a while, I’ll do a few sprint intervals running in place on it if my body feels bored. The legs are sturdy and I don’t have to tighten them every time I jump, which I had to do with my old one. The bungees are strong and will be easy to replace when it’s time.
The results? Toned up waist, thighs, arms, calves, and upper back. Mental clarity and energy. Bouncing everyday also makes sure my tummy fat stays at bay. I’ve noticed though that my hips and thighs have become harder to satisfactorily stretch. I have to use a foam roller if I want to release my muscles and relax because the bellicon really does work them all. Highly recommended.
“MY BACK IS STRONGER…”
“Since I’ve started rebounding, I’ve done different intensities, and they all seem to be effective. I have noticed that my back is stronger and I have less random sciatic pain. My waist has also come in a noticeable amount, which is surprising, because I’ve always been pretty straight waisted. I’ve also noticed that my chest is stronger, as if I had been doing chest presses but I’ve only been rebounding.

I’m still amazed at the quality of the Bellicon. It’s so sturdy and quiet. I saw the movie “Jackass” and they had a rebounder, which I think was a Needak. It looked small and they guy that stepped on it didn’t even bounce, just stepped right on to the ground. The Bellicon is much higher up so you’re not going to hit the ground while rebounding. I’m so glad I get to use a Bellicon, it’s going great and I’m loving it and it’s so easy to do.
“IT’S SIMPLE, EASY, AND MOST OF ALL, FUN!”
Jonathan, Fitchburg, Wisconsin
“I can honestly say that most of my purchases do not fully meet my expectations. The Bellicon is much better than I expected it would be! I cannot believe how well it is constructed. The legs are a work of art and that’s coming from a person who is a perfectionist when it comes to build quality. Your company is truly promoting a wonderful product, which helps facilitate health, happiness, and quality of life.”

My daughter is still learning to bounce and loves it. She definitely brings our family a lot of happiness and now we can have more fun together everyday. I guess I have Uncrate.com to thank for posting the bellicon, otherwise I might have never learned about it. The beauty of the product is what really caught my eye. At first the cost of the bellicon really surprised me, I thought to myself “Almost $1000 for a trampoline?” That’s crazy, who would purchase such a thing? Then as I did more and more research I became fascinated as to why so many reviews and people on-line raved about the “Belli”. I have tried other spring-type trampolines before and I was never really impressed by how they performed. They were usually too stiff and poorly made. Kind of like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Other trampolines we’re just too hard or too soft, the bellicon is just right. LOL
After much contemplation I realized $1000 is a bargain for something that promotes health, for without health not many things in life can be enjoyed. People pay hundreds of dollars each month for cell phone and cable TV bills, but hesitate in spending for products that would promote their health.
I know too many friends who have purchased treadmills, exercise bikes, rowing machines and other exercise “gadgets” that rarely get used after the initial excitement of a new purchase wears off. It is because they are not fun! If it’s not fun, it’s work, and people don’t want to do it. I don’t have time to go the gym or join a health club that I won’t use, which is why I purchased the bellicon. I can just roll it out and I’m ready to go in no time at all. It’s simple, easy, and most of all, fun!
If I could make a couple of suggestions, one would be don’t ever sacrifice on the quality of the product. I see too many companies that come out with a really good product and then a few years later they get cheap and it just isn’t the same anymore. Afterwards, people get disappointed and stop purchasing the product which leads to failure, it’s often tempting to do because of tight margins but not very smart. What makes the bellicon what it is, is the quality! It’s not cheap, but the best doesn’t come cheap, if I wanted a mediocre product I would have purchased a spring rebounder for $200 that would sit in the corner all the time. The economy is tough right now, but I believe people are still willing to pay for high-quality products, they just have to be shown the way. Apple is a perfect example of this. People might cancel their health club memberships, but they still need to workout. The bellicon is a one-time purchase that will last for years. How many purchases provide this much enjoyment for a one-time purchasing price?
The custom options were key for me in deciding to purchase the bellicon. I liked the fact that I could customize the bellicon for my tastes. I really felt like it was a product being tailored just for me. One size does not fit all! The colors of the bands, different metal wire on the bands and choice of mat colors really set the bellicon apart from the competition. It’s also reassuring that it has a great warranty and that if something fails it can be replaced without replacing the whole thing.
I think that’s about it! The Bellicon is pretty much a perfect product.
“I HAVE FIBROMYALGIA, AND REBOUNDING HELPS ME…”
Anneli, Grande Prairie, AB
“Rebounding over the last 3 years has made me mentally sharper and I think more clearly and focused when regularly rebounding. However on my old rebounder, when really having a rough day- I just felt like I would break on my old Cellersizer so wouldn’t get on”.

“I recently gathered pages and pages of motivational quotes and phrases that I post on my fridge and circulate to encourage me to make the right choices regarding health. I came across this one “Find ways to nurture yourself without food”. This had me pondering as eating has been my general fix or excuse for many years. What could actually come close I wondered? I decided that rebounding on my Bellicon would be that thing.
I am enjoying my bellicon so much. It really is amazingly different than my old one. I describe in mountain bike terms; it is like going from a hard tail bike to one with full suspension. I almost think I get a harder workout yet so much easier on the joints. Any amount of time spent on there is literally “uplifting” and makes me so happy.
I have fibromyalgia and rebounding is a large part of what keeps me going and managing it well. Rebounding over the last 3 years has made me mentally sharper and I think more clearly and focused when regularly rebounding. However on my old rebounder, when really having a rough day- I just felt like I would break on my old Cellersizer so wouldn’t get on. I think the Bellicon now will be really important on my bad days. The Bellicon gently invites me to get on and as I healthbounce, I can slowly feel like I am coming to life and eventually pick up speed and then do bounce and get off the rebounder feeling much more energized, alert and hopeful to manage this crazy illness.
Also I should say that rebounding overall since the last 3 years has broken an almost 30 year cycle of chronic sinus infection that would come twice a year and last for 2-3 weeks. I actually have broken a record now and not been ill with the sinuses for over one whole year.
I wish I could convince anyone with a chronic illness of any kind – how important this piece of equipment is. Used regularly (and who wouldn’t want to as it is so fun and right there in your home)- it has the capacity to turn your health around. A small investment really for so many future years of improved health.”
“NEVER AGAIN ANOTHER TRAMPOLINE!”
“I love my bellicon trampoline! For eight years I have jumped on different mini trampolines daily, except when I am on vacation or sick. In this time I have used 4 different mini trampolines: The first one was a cheap trampoline – and it was quickly obvious to me and my back, that I needed a brand name trampoline.

“I love my bellicon trampoline!
For eight years I have jumped on different mini trampolines daily, except when I was on vacation or sick. In this time I have used 4 different mini trampolines:
The first one was a cheap trampoline – and it was quickly obvious to me and my back, that I needed a brand name trampoline.
As I wanted to utilize the high body and mental effects of training on a trampoline in a short amount of time, I spent a little more money on a mini tramp with metal springs. But I realized soon, that my back did not feel very good with that either.
I did not give up and bought another spring trampoline with softer lining of the same brand, and I continued my morning routine.
At some point I heard of the bungee-trampoline from bellicon, and I had a test device shipped. I stepped onto the bellicon, and I had a feeling like I was on cloud 9. I knew immediately that I would never ever move on to another trampoline again. In Germany we would call it the “Mercedes among the mini trampolines.” I could not wait to get my own bellicon.
Even my 13 and 16 year-old boys can’t resist the fun-factor of the bellicon and continuously use it. Recently I stepped for a moment onto my old brand name spring-trampoline and thought – “no, I can’t do that anymore!” Once on a bellicon, always on a bellicon!
So I enjoy my daily 15-20 minutes of morning excercise on my bellicon, regardless of the weather, with good music, and every cell of my body is happy!”
“NO ASTHMA ATTACKS THANKS TO BELLICON EXERCISE…”
“I started having allergic asthma when I was a child. Over the course of the years, I eventually grew out of it, but it remained my weak spot. Stress, springtime pollen, or colds would set off a period of asthma, but with appropriate medicines, it was manageable”.
Read more from Sabia...
After giving birth to our third child, my asthma came back and I could not shake it off. I could not run around with our kids and walking up steps was a challenge.
When I saw my M.D., he told me that he could prescribe all kinds of medicine for my asthma, but the most important thing to do to get rid of it in a sustainable way was to exercise regularly. He told me to start slowly, but keep at it. This is when I started using the bellicon minit-trampoline. It was easy since I did not have to leave the house.
In the beginning, I could just walk on it slowly without getting out of breath, but within a few weeks, I increased my pace. I got on the trampoline every day for just 15 minutes and immediately my breathing got better, I regained my strength, my backaches were gone, and I had a lot of energy.
It has been more than 5 years since I have had a bad incident with asthma. Today I can play tag with my kids easily–although catching them still is a challenge!”
REPLACES AN ENTIRE FITNESS STUDIO…”
Rolf Gramlic, 58
“In my opinion the bellicon replaces an entire fitness-studio (that’s why I cancelled my membership)”.
Read more from Rolf...
To me it is the ideal full-body device. I use it for targeted weight training, and also for conditioning for cross country and downhill skiing, while simultaneously training my balance. Since I am also a passionate motorcyclist, I can feel a better balance there as well. I am also running on the device. It feels like running in deep snow and is ideal training for thighs and buttocks. I am thrilled.
The Bellicon really has nothing to do with common trampolines you can buy at any supermarket, which I have also used in all sizes. I have already told my friends about it. They all wanted to get one of these things (after they’d test-jumped).”
“IT’S BEEN MONTHS AND I’M STILL THRILLED!”
“Even after many weeks I am still very happy, and my wishes have been fulfilled in a friendly, competent and prompt manner”.
Read more from Silvia...
The service is quick and nice, the trampoline is loads of fun and so gentle that even people like me with quite a bit of extra baggage like to get on it.
Even if you are well endowed, which usually makes jumping and bouncing painful, it is possible on the bellicon without excessive ‘bouncing and swapping’. No matter what exercise you do, it is painless on the Bellicon.”
“LOST 30lbs AFTER PREGNANCY…”
Corinna G., 35
“I got the Bellicon in December of 2008, and I am totally thrilled! After I gave birth to our son in the winter of 2007 I could just not get rid of the extra weight. I looked desperately for an uncomplicated yet highly efficient way to exercise my body and shed the extra pounds without the need of a babysitter or sports studio.
Read more from Corinna...
The Bellicon is just what I wanted! The bouncing method is extremely effective and because the legs fold back the device is easy to put away. Now I lost even more weight and have a better toned body than I initially wanted. I am still hooked. When I got the Bellicon, I desperately wanted to loose 10-14 lbs and it ended up being 20-30 lbs! The compliments I get are a great reward and I mention and recommend the Bellicon at every opportunity. My Bellicon even has to come along on trips sometimes. I especially recommend the Bellicon to women who have one or more children, who want to tone their bodies effortlessly, and who would like to strengthen their pelvic floor.
I try to bounce for half an hour every day, even though this does not always work out. Last September I even managed to spend an hour daily on the Bellicon, and that was totally cool, as I lost at least 10 lbs in two weeks.
Apart from toning my figure, the back problems I’ve been having (neck and lower back/pelvis) also go away on the Bellicon. I can eliminate pain by relieving posture.”
“I DON’T WANT TO GIVE UP THE BELLICON ANYMORE…”
Specialist Dr. Petra Lange, M.D.
“I learned about the Bellicon through the Hamburg Initiative‚ Healthy and Active, and I never want to be without it again. As a physician I do not have the time to exercise in a club. At the moment, cold and darkness also keep me from taking long strolls in the evenings”.

“That is where the Bellicon comes in. While listening to my music, I am bouncing at least 3 times a week for 15 to 30 minutes. It is fun and takes little effort. It also helps my tense neck muscles. As a physician, I can recommend it without restrictions.”
“MINI TRAMPOLINE AFTER HERNIATED DISC”
“I first heard of the Bellicon trampoline during rehab. Though the therapists advised against it, I decided to try it. I had bad pains in the lower back region, in the sacroiliac joint, and massive muscle tension”.
Read more from Lydia...
After only the first training unit (20 minutes) I felt considerable pain relief because my muscles relaxed and I got more mobility of the sacroiliac joints. They loosened due to the see-saw and swinging motion. For the positive effects I decided to buy the device.
I put the mini trampoline in the basement in front of the TV. I also use it with a music station, then it is even more fun.”
“MINI-TRAMPOLINES AS ALTERNATIVE TO JOGGING”
“When I test-jumped at the Medica Show in Duesseldorf I noticed a dramatic difference to my Trimilin at home. The bellicon mini trampoline bounces much softer, doesn’t cause hard shocks, and it tangibly utilizes the muscles more…

“I use it to compensate for my job and as an alternative for running, especially in bad weather in the winter or when it gets dark early. It is really user-friendly. My muscles get a better workout and I am in better shape.
In the beginning I didn’t endure as long as on my old Trimilin (30 to 60 minutes). I had to start with ten minutes, and then I increased it over the course of 4 weeks. If possible I exercise every day.”
“FLEXIBLE TRAINING AND MAINTAINING WEIGHT”
“I am very happy with the mini trampoline from bellicon. I noticed a big difference to common, cheap devices. The suspension is very suave and doesn’t put any stress on the joints and body”.
Read more from Ruth...
“It is fun to work out with it and time flies. Unlike with other devices you don’t wonder: “When is it finally over?” My ultimate reason to get a Bellicon was to activate my metabolism and to control my weight. As a relaxation educator I am thinking holistic, and I realized that I missed out on exercise.
With the trampoline I am not bound to place or time, I am weather-independent, and I can exercise any time I like. I use it every other day for about 20 minutes, sometimes daily or just twice a week. This is a great way to get exercise without any more pressure on my schedule and to maintain my weight.”
