the Needek- this is the top model in the US.
Hope you enjoy!
Is that in ascending or descending order? I ended up getting the Body Burner, because you can tilt it! My only reservation is that it said good up to 250lbs, but max 280lbs. I'm 244 hopefully I'll be down a few more by the time it gets here. But to me the tilt and incline would be really good workout. I want to run and jump rope but I get sore ankles from all this extra weight, and I know that everyone says get a mini-trampoline until your only about 35% over your ideal weight or something so for me that's about 175lbs. I've got to lose 70lbs before I can jump rope on real ground then with risking damage to my joints and knees.
SillyFluff, check out the Urban Rebounder website and the Body Burner, there's probably sites for the other two fikustrees mentioned, I know there is a big price difference in some of the models. The Body Burner was as expensive as I could go, I think the Urbanrebounder is only $59.95+29.99s/h. I just hope I can return the Body Burner if it's really not good quality or not good bounce. ~Oh yah, and I know sporting good stores sell mini-tramps, cuz I've seen them there, but I don't know about the videos, you might have to order those online (either from the companys or maybe on amazon.com) Just be sure to get one with steel frame (sturdier than aluminum) and that is connected to the frame with spring-coils not just with the fabric. If you look at the difff websites you can get an idea of what to look for. The Urbanrebounder had a higher weight limit too and I think they even offer a gym quality one for up to 350lbs.
I think from all that I've read I'm going to order the videos for the UrbanRebounder instead of the Body Burner ones, because people seem to like them better. Anyone else have any input on the videos?
