I have a question. I have been doing a little reseach on rebounding and this question is part of it, but I was wondering do you have to get the urband rebounder or can you just get a small trampoline? I went to Dick's today and saw urban rebounder $99 or a small trampoline for $39.99.

Whatever gets the lymph moving works. Have done a rebounding chair and standard trampoline. Massage also moves the lymph, but cost would certainly be higher than rebounding.
Good luck in your choice.

I had a walmart rebounder. It felt hard when I jumped. The urban rebounder has a softer bounce and is easier on your knees. There are many brands out there to compare.

We have the Cory Everson. So far so good. It was cheap and I only had to put the legs on. Prior to that we had a similar looking one but the padding around the edge just ripped to shreds. That was a concern. And prior to that we had a folding one. I'd never get one of those again. I was afraid to put it together. Said it needed three strong people and that it could pop back and break your bones. Nope! That thing got thrown out.

I have one of the folding ones, it's never broken my bones, put my eyes out, or anything :D. It was expensive, over $200 at least five years ago. It's far superior to the cheap ones. The bounce is smooth, whereas the cheap ones are jarring, not something I need for my bones and joints. Mine also comes with a bar to hold on to (someday when I'm 115 years old and feel I need a little extra support :D). I would invest the few extra dollars for my health!
The problem is the cheap ones $39.99 are just that - cheap. I wore (killed) out two of them in less than a year's time. Springs broke, and the trampoline came unsewed, etc. The quality just isn't there (my was the Weider brand which I thought would be ok since they make lots of weight equipment). I finally broked down and bought a Needak. They have a great warranty and will ship you the parts you need if something goes on it. With the cheap ones it is impossible to get replacement parts and there is a difference in the quality of the bounce. You can get the best price for a Needak on EBAY and you will still have a warranty through the manufacturer.

That's a good price for the Urban which I have. I may have to get a Bellicon and compare the two since my friend rates it so highly. :)
My Urban folds, no broken bones, doesn't take 3 guys to open it... did it myself quite easily.

Thanks for your responses. I am going to do further research, but I believe I will not be getting the $39.99 one.

I used to have a trampoline in my backyard until we found out we couldn't get home owners insurance because of the trampoline. I loved loved loved that trampoline and it would get me feeling amazingly euphoric. I also felt really, really toned and muscular while using it.
OK, I think I've just convinced myself to get a rebounder now!

Well, I just purchased an Urban rebounder with birthday money I got. I sure the other ones are better, but this is all I can afford right now. It is a fun workout :) I came home and did a workout on it right away.

My pilates machine came with a rebounder attachment which I love love love - my work out area has low ceiling so the kind you stand and go bounce bounce bounce was not an option for me.

Stupid question, but...
What exactly do you DO on a rebounder? Just jump? For how long? I have a small trampoline, but I don't use it at all. Maybe I should start.
I've always wanted a big trampoline so I could jump high and land on my butt. Do you remember the scene from the movie Big? I'd looooove to try that trampoline.

In rebounding it is more important to push down than to jump up so just pretend that you want to break through the bottom of it.

i just allow the movement to happen for me. sometimes i do a mock jumping jack.. other times i use my arms in other ways to give them a work out at the same time. other times i sit on my butt and use my abs to move me on the rebounder.
