  1. I have also read about the benefits of "rebounding". I can't believe you found one for $5! That is awesome....


  2. Now I could sure use something like this, on bad weather days you can still exercise and have tons of fun.......:-) Hugs

  3. I actually have one and used to use it religiously! Then we put it away for a party and it never made it back to the living room! I'll have to start again!
    It really does get your heart pumping!
    All the best,

  4. oh shucks! We used to have one of those hanging around in the basement. I think I got rid of it long ago. WHY? I'm going to start thrift shopping for one. What a great idea!

  5. I used to have one too. It made me get motion sickness when I tried to use it though so I sold it on eBay.
