As a busy working mom of 2 kids under 3 it is tough to find time for myself. Over the years I have had 2 different elipticals, gym memberships and tried some dance classes. The elipticals break down, you can't get the parts, take up too much space and are noisy; the gym is just to much of a haul with kids and feels like a meat market and taking a dance class as an uncoordinated adult is just embarrassing and I loose interest in things quickly. I have also tried exercise dvds from home but found them to be too much hassel as the kids want to watch tv and they just feel too much like work. I have been dreaming about a rebounder for over a year, remmembering jumping as a child on our trampoline and knowing that the fun factor would make all the difference for me. I have found that I can exercise on my premium 49" bellicon for over an hour without getting bored and grinding my teeth waiting for time to pass as I did at aerobics classes. An unexpected surprise I have found is that I can use weights for 30 to 45 minutes while dancing to the music. For the first time in my life I can get the cardio I need and work my arms out and love every minute of it. I never take more than one day off a week from my routine and I am starting to see my legs slim down, and the definition in my abs return since having 2 kids. My husband is happy and is noticing my results. Sometimes I feel like a fly girl from in living color, just dancing and grooving to the music. Something that I have been wanting to do since being home bound with the kids. It is really a great workout that is truly enjoyable and I am averaging a one pound a week weight loss with watching my diet. I love that I can do it in the morning before my kids are up and feel that I have done something for myself for a change. If I couldn't workout from home I just wouldn't beable to find the time to drive to the gym. I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone and strongly suggest that people go for the 49" model as you really can have a lot of fun on it. I think both my mom and mother inlaw will be getting one as they can see the amazing results that I have gotten from mine. I did contemplate the Jumpsport model but knew that it would be too small for me to really let loose on and after using the 49" premium model I am certain that I would have returned it. I can jump for over an hour with weights in my arms and feel no pain or strain the next day. I am sleeping the best I have slept in years and feel more relaxed. I also hope that my children will enjoy exercising on it as they get older and that I can be a good role model for them to be active. The set up was about 3 minutes and it arrived earlier than expected. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase and I would not hesitate to reccommend it to friends and family. Michelle and Saskia, thank you so much for the excellent customer service, I very much appreciate it. All the best, Heather
