Welcome to ReboundFit
Hi I am Rosi and I started Rebound because I believe this exercise provided the gentlest and healthiest exercise experience at 18 stones while working on weightlos and recover, and working in a stress filled job. This conclusion bo bonce on the bellicon, I reached after researching the best exercise and then best equipment. With my challenges the research by NASA looking to build bone density and muscle mass with gentle impact seemed the besgt choice with the greatest benefits. From benefitst to aerobic capacity, and being more effective than running…hmm well there was no running at that weight ..the choice was obvious.
About My Weight Loss
With the weight I was carrying around (see right), and dealing with illness and fatigue, certain exercises left my feet aching and my knees and hips in pain Other type and me demotivated. many exercises I found too challenging and a chore, so It was a challenge to stay motivated to exercise between bouts of treatment (which i was told was helpful and which was backed up by cancer research.).
Getting the right kind of exercise for your body is really important but so is having fun. I found the benefits of rebounding more than just physical. Working to make exercise part of your daily routine and lifestyle meant it needs to be enjoyable. This was an added bonus I did not expect and it fueled my desire to share the journey with others. The bellicon equipment isn’t cheap, but honestly I looked at less expensive options, but given it was my health and was life at stake, anything less seemed unwise, and risked ending up in the shed . Now I delight in sharing my bounce back with others.
When facing ongoing weight challenges nobody wants exercises that is boring and that seem like a chore.

Why Bellicon Bungee Rebounding
I research all kinds of rebounders and then the bungee rebounders but none of them took my weight or had reviews that left me questioning the quality of the equipment. 10 years later…I still have my original bellicon (above). They are still costly with few for re-sale for a reason. At the end of the day (months actually) after all the research, this was the only equipment for me and I believe anyone over 17 stones but highly beneficial if you are looking for a gentle bounce back.
