@ASTRAEA   Woman LOL Yes, especially if it was one of your body parts that broke!

@Epster - One of the videos showed the assembly; it took about 60 seconds, and there was no voice-over explaining anything. The first time I tried to attach the balance bar, everything was fine until the last connection, and then the parts wouldn't line up perfectly & jammed. When I contacted the company via live chat, the suggestion was to stand on it & force the parts together  .. sure, and then if something broke, whose fault would that be?!

@ASTRAEA Indeed! You won't be traveling with yours, it sounds like, however I can say that it does get easier to set up. Those first few times, though, boy something could go wrong and a person alone could get hurt! 

 

An aside: Our rebounder didn't come with a video, however I'm thinking about the video instructions for our double decker recumbent trailer hitch rack. They showed an 80-something assembling, installling, then loading and unloading recumbent trikes with ease. HA! Some 300 load/unload episodes later we still prefer to do this as a team. And I remain in awe of that 80 y-o in the video! PS Last year we had to show another couple how to load and unload their trikes on the same model rack: the video convinced them they couldn't do it!

@Epster - Mine folds too, but it's one PITA to attach the balance bar to the base, and it's heavier than I'd want to haul around anyway.


@ASTRAEA We didn't get the balance bar because I figured I'd actually end up tripping on it. (I'm such a klutz, ugh.) Ours is a PITA to fold and unfold. Smiley Sad

@ASTRAEA

 

Sounds like a good system.

 

We chose a folding model because we intended to travel with ours. The plan is to have it in the (future) RV, but for now (besides daily workouts) we find the mini trampoline quite useful for warming up prior to races at the Senior Games. I find it to be one of the most useful pieces of exercise equipment we have.

@LaDolceVita - Thanks; I just changed it again the other day .. but the avatars are so small & kind of squished/elongated! Smiley Happy

@ASTRAEA Woo hoo you! The mini trampoline takes a bit to get used to, and rightly so, because a person could end up injured if not familiar and careful, but I predict you'll soon be a master.

 

 

All- Rebounders are great for beginners as well as those accustomed to harder workouts. Go as hard or as slow as your goals/fitness level dictate.
