Overview: Why a bellicon rebounder?
1. The bellicon Advantage
The bellicon’s secret lies in its bungees: they do the work for you. We engineered them to stretch to nearly three times their size. Their elasticity produces an amazingly smooth deceleration and acceleration as you bounce. Gravity and the bellicon’s bungees collaborate to do most of the exercise work for you. What other exercise equipment does this?! See the bungees in action.
When we hear the word “weightlessness,” we automatically think of astronauts. No longer! With every bounce on the bellicon you experience g-forces followed by a moment of weightlessness. When decelerating at the low point of your bounce, your central nervous system automatically instructs every (yes every!) muscle in your body to flex for a fraction of a second. As the bungees pull you upward, all your muscles are instructed to relax. This cycle of flexing and relaxing muscles gives you a full-body workout, all managed by your body’s own reflexes. Are you ready to put gravity and the bellicon to work for you?
We all know the frustration of starting an exercise program only to find that we cannot – or do not want to – stick with it. When engineering the bellicon, we wanted to make it as simple as possible to go from good intentions to good habits. We knew that an effective workout was not enough; it also needed to be fun and easy. “Fun” and “easy” are not two words normally associated with exercise, but we took on the challenge to make this possible. The result: we’re happy to report that thousands of customers have been faithfully using their bellicons for years. What a difference an enjoyable, invigorating exercise experience makes!
The bellicon stands out among fitness products because of how many muscles it involves, how evenly it exercises them, and how much fun it is to use. No other rebounder provides the same balanced, smooth upward and downward motion as the bellicon. No wonder: we conducted years of research and development to attain this level of quality. Go here to have a look at how the bellicon stacks up against other rebounders.
No matter your age or physical condition, it’s easiest to start on the bellicon with small bounces. It’s best to do this barefoot since it exercises your foot and ankle muscles better, and helps your feet grip the mat. Note: Your feet do not have to leave the mat for a good workout! Exert just enough force with your legs so that the bungees lift you back up to the point where your feet are still touching the mat, but not pushing it down. This simple bounce cycle is enough to provide endurance training and stimulate circulation.
The bellicon is your jogging trail with perpetually good weather. We designed a special type of bungee so that you can jog to your heart’s content. If you currently use a treadmill, you will notice some important differences. First, you will achieve the same cardio and muscle-strengthening results, but with less effort. Second, your joints and back will be a lot happier because the bellicon provides ultra-low-impact exercise. Find out more.
The bellicon gives you a full-body workout because, as you bounce, your central nervous system automatically flexes and relaxes every muscle in your body. You don’t have to think about it – it just happens! Of course, you won’t look like a body builder, but you will attain healthy muscle tone and strength, as well as stronger ligaments. A great way to firm up!
What are your fitness goals? Weight loss? Better balance? Firm, toned muscles? Stronger core? Healthier back? Or simply more energy? Whatever your priority, the bellicon can help you achieve it with a wide variety of workouts. These include everything from basic bouncing, to jogging, core training, Pilates, fat-burning, coordination training, and exercises for your abs. Check out our growing exercise library.

3. Health Benefits
There are a lot of different ways to get cardio training. But the bellicon way is so easy on your system, and so revitalizing, that you will be amazed at the results. The key difference is the continual flexing and relaxing of every muscle in your body as you bounce. Your muscles literally help your heart to do its job of circulating blood. Your heart gets a workout and a break at the same time! This leaves you with energy reserves you can draw on all day long. Find out more.
A lot of people believe that the harder they work out, the faster they will lose weight. They are surprised – and perhaps relieved -- to find out that moderate, non-demanding exercise works best for weight loss. This is due to the body’s natural reaction to different forms of physical exertion. When you take your body “to the limit,” it actually triggers mechanisms that prevent the burning of fat. Moderate exercise, however, shifts your body into fat-burning mode. The bellicon is specially designed for moderate workouts, and is, therefore, a great tool for shedding pounds. By the way, if your current weight is making any form of exercise difficult, the bellicon’s gentle, ultra-low-impact workout is for you.
The bane of many people’s existence is chronic back pain. A frequent underlying cause of back pain is muscle weakness, tightness or spasms. Relief can be elusive if you are trying to exercise weak muscles while tight ones are making the workout painful. The bellicon offers an effective way to strengthen and relax back muscles at the same time. Bouncing on the bellicon causes your body to alternate between the force of gravity and weightlessness about once every second. This triggers your central nervous system to flex and then relax every muscle in your body. This helps back muscles grow stronger and loosen up.
The bellicon’s moderate, ultra-low-impact form of exercise helps to energize your entire body, promoting a stronger immune system, better defense against allergies, and flexibility of the discs between your vertebrae. Exercise on the bellicon gently lubricates joints, strengthens bones, accelerates digestion, and improves balance and coordination. And besides all these benefits, bouncing on the bellicon is fun!
