Product Review ONETWOFIT 48" Silent Mini Trampoline

ONETWOFIT 48" Silent Mini Trampoline with Adjustable Handle Bar
Fitness Trampoline Bungee Rebounder Jumping Cardio Trainer Workout for Adults or Kids

A few years back I read a couple of books about Rebound Fitness, or using a mini trampoline for fitness. The science in the books is very convincing. But the books also specifically talked about what type of trampolines to use and not use. You can pick up mini trampolines for a cheap as $50 and as expensive as $1000. If you are using one with springs the springs needs to be tapered or shaped, so that the resistance changes as they expand and contract. For  Elastic rebounders it is important that it is not one continuous elastic and that they are doubled up for the same impact reasons. After I read the books on rebounding especially those by Albert E. Carter, I shared with a lot of people about the benefits of rebounding.

The problem is we were given a cheaper one. And it ended up causing some issues because of how rigid the surface was. And eventually I stopped using it and gave it back. This year when I started having some serious problems with my knee again. I started to save up for a better model. Now to be honest the one I first had my eyes set on cost more than triple, but I also wanted to get something and get started.

I did a lot of research and checked a lot of product reviews. And this one has an average 4-star rating on multiple sites and has hundreds of reviews on various sites. I picked this up with the goal of using it as an interim item, use it for a few years and plan ahead for a high-end model. But after using this one for a week now I do not think that will be needed. For now, my plan is simple use this three times a day for 5-10 minutes, just a gentle bounce for the exercise benefits and the benefits to the lymphatic system. And if all goes well keep using it daily to help improve my overall health and fitness.

I ordered this on a Friday, and it arrived on Monday. Unpackaging and assembly took about an hour. Replacement bands can be orders and the trampoline could be restrung in a few years if needed. The construction is solid, and I am very impressed. The construction and feel is comparable to much more expensive units. I am very satisfied with this piece of gear and am glad to have it in the house. So, pick it up and bounce on to greater health and wellbeing.
