If you are following me a bit longer you know how crazy I am about rebouding on the bellicon. Bellicon is considered to the world’s best rebounder and I agree 100% with that statement.
The bellicon has been, and continues to be, the world’s premier rebounder: no other rebounder or mini-trampoline can match the quality of materials, attention to detail and overall performance. Beneath the bellicon’s elegantly simple appearance are years of research, testing and design that add up to one thing: an incredibly smooth, amazingly effective bounce that will spoil you for anything else. The bellicon has won numerous quality awards and has been praised and endorsed by a host of top professional athletes, doctors, fitness gurus and health institutes.
Here you can read my review about the bellicon and rebounding in general.
Rebounding is not only an exercise for the muscles and the heart, it’s the ONLY form of exercise that works on all cells. Mr. Albert. E. Carter explains this very well. According to Mr. Albert (an authority in the field of rebounding and author of the book “The New Miracles of Rebound Exercise“ it’s the most efficient and effective form of exercise ever devised by mankind.
If you’re following me on Snapchat (the green creator), you might have noticed that I’m often dancing and jumping on loud music. I’m actually jumping on a rebounder. Also, you might have noticed that the rebounder that I use doesn’t produce any noise (annoying creaking) at all. Recently I have been spending quite some time jumping on the bellicon rebounder and I need to share my experience with bellicon with you. And why bother jumping on a rebounder in the first place?
What is bellicon?
The bellicon is a small rebounder/trampoline that is very popular for example in rehabilitation centers. Also, it’s widely used by the elderly, hospitals and physiotherapists. It’s in fact not a burden for your joints, but a very good workout for your muscles. Because let’s be honest, if jumping on a rebounder is safe enough for NASA, it’s also good for the elderly / vulnerable among us, right?
Ok, so it’s not a burden for your joints, it’s low impact and therefore ideal for the elderly. And that’s where this entire rebounder story stopped. However, in the last couple of years there has been a change. To be honest, I have been following this ” rebounder trend ” for some years, but the abundance of information (which rebounder?) kept me from taking the leap…

That’s quite a statement and I wanted to know everything about it.
If you think about it, all exercises (cardio / muscle) exist with the use of gravity. A push-up, for example, is a matter of your body against the force of gravity. If you often enough expose your muscles to gravity and resistance, your muscles will grow stronger. Where are muscles made of? Cells. These cells only get stronger, because gravity and resistance have an effect on each cell. The cell must always respond and that makes them stronger. This process naturally affects the whole body. In other words, if you train your cells you will become stronger and fit. What does this have to do with jumping on a rebounder? Well, quite a lot.
Around the beginning of 1900 Albert Einstein came up with a new theory about the power of acceleration, deceleration and gravity. To make a long story short, jumping on a rebounder is the only way of exercise that by acceleration, deceleration and gravity effect all cells.
With each jump you make your muscles, heart, tendons, nerves and bones stronger.
“NASA discovered that rebounding is about 68% more efficient than running or jogging.” Cellular exercises are a good way to do your cardio exercises. Just as a comparison; ten minutes of rebounding is the equivalent of about 30 minutes of skiing. And jumping is quite effective, because you’ve probably already heard that ten minutes of jumping ropes can be compared to thirty minutes of running. Rebounding is however also a cellular exercise and safer for the joints. It also provides more oxygen to the lungs and a stronger heart.
When you’re using oxygen efficiently with a cellular exercise it’s an excellent way to burn fat for fuel. As I mentioned earlier rebounding affects every cell in the body and the amount of oxygen in the cells. And oxygen is life. A lack of oxygen in the body is the beginning of discomfort and diseases.
