So I figured that $250 was worth the price of admission to loving my running routine again. I got the jumps Tuesday evening after Thanksgiving (perfect timing!) opened the box, put them on, stood up off the couch and blasted the music on my ipod. Jumping in the dark on my front porch I fell in LOVE with these things. Took the doggie for a Kangoo run around the block (in the dark) and decided that these things were going to change my workout routine forever. The next morning I went to one of my favorite running trails and went for a run. I was DYING!!! I had to run/walk because I thought my heart would pound out of my chest. This is so much harder then regular running, the best cardio workout and super fun.
I have been Kangoo running 5-6 days a week for 2 and a half weeks for 30-40 minutes.
A few things I have noticed:
1- Even on a run/walk routine I can still go 4 miles in less than 40 minutes; meaning you MOVE with these things which makes it so much fun.
2- I get stopped by at least 1 person EVERY time I go out with the KJ's so be prepared.
3- Going up any hill is really hard at first but gets easier on the 3-4th day.
4- My feet are truly a size 7.5-8 normal width, so I bought the medium jumps and have added a pair of sport gel Dr. Scholl's which add a little more comfort and fill in the boots (which are designed for men).
5- I always wear 2 pairs of socks, one athletic and one tall to cover my chins.
6- I was developing a crazy bruise on my right ankle, losening the top buckle has helped a lot. I wear my jumps firm to tight around my feet and a little looser around the calves/ankles (you will get a few bruises and soreness after the first few days but stick with your routine your body is just getting used to the stiff boots).
7- On my 8th or 9th run I no longer had to run/walk, running and rebounding all the way!
8- I love climbing stairs with these things, super fun and a great workout.
9- I can take my dog for a walk and jump beside her as she sniffs and enjoys her leisure stroll while keeping my heart rate up.
10- No chin splints! This is one of my favorite results. If you are a regular runner you know what I am taking about, if not then just imagine that your chins are on fire and you can barely walk because your calve muscles are so tight.
11- Ankles still feel a little sore, but they are feeling better now that I have loosened up the ankle (top) buckle.
12-Downhill can be hard on your knees because you just want to fly as you run which is creating more pressure as you rebound.
13- According to my Polar I am burning more calories then when I run the same distance/time. Which is awesome!
14- Each boot weighs about 4 pounds which adds to the difficulty of the workout, so be prepared.
15 - Super portable (I just leave them in the car and go).
I run on a variety of terrain which is also fun; gravel, cement, asphalt and dirt all allow for easy jumping. One of my biggest concerns when I had my traditional running routine was that most of the trails around here are cement, which is very hard on your knees, hips and other joints. I can now Kangoo easily on all of my favorite tails without fear or wrecking my knees.
I have lost just over 3lbs in the last two weeks (granted; if I was traditional running for the same period of time I would have lost the same amount of weight BUT I would have chin splints, knee pain and be BORED out of my mind), and have even been getting comments from cohorts who have noticed that I've lost weight (and they have no idea about my Kangooing).
If you're at the end of this super long review I hope that it has helped you learn a little about these awesome rebounders. Good luck & please comment I'd love to hear from other Kangooers; what you are doing, how you are using them ect.
This is money well spent. I will definitely use these a lot. My foot is a size 6 and the small fits perfectly. I wore long socks in these and bounced, walked and jogged for about 20 minutes with no blisters or sore spots. I'll see how my muscles feel tomorrow. You definitely get a leg and core workout. I'm already looking forward to using these again tomorrow.
By the way, these are definitely not just for young kids. Have fun and enjoy!
