TOP 10 Best Rebounders and Mini Trampolines available in Canada

Good mini trampolines are of great importance if active, low-impact exercise is what you have in mind. High quality rebounders, or mini trampolines, are an integral part of a good exercise regime.

Mini trampolines are just that – small trampolines, usually up to 4 feet in diameter, that are primarily aimed for indoor exercise. This type of exercise is excellent for everyone, and particularly for those with weak joints and bones. Trampoline exercises don’t put as much stress on your muscles and bones, letting you exercise for longer, pain-free.

They are also fun and can be performed indoors, even when the weather is not as good. Plus, they’re cheaper and much healthier than, for example, treadmills. Most mini trampolines can be folded and stowed away when not in use.

You might think that bouncing on a trampoline is an activity reserved for children, but you’d be seriously mistaken. There are slight differences between bouncing on an outdoor trampoline and jumping on a mini trampoline indoors. Bouncing on a small indoor trampoline is called rebounding. The exercises consist of small and quick series of jumps intended to lift you just a bit from the surface of the trampoline, not launch you airborne as with regular trampolines.

And the benefits?
Well, they’re numerous. As with any exercise, rebounding is good for your cardiovascular system. This aerobic exercise also strengthens your core muscles and develops your sense of balance. You can exercise longer, as the stresses that your joints experience are up to 80 percent lower than with running. This is good for weight loss, as you burn more calories since you exercise for longer periods of time. Studies have shown that bouncing on a trampoline burns an astounding 320 calories per hour! Of course, exercise is also a good way to give you a good night’s sleep if you’re having trouble with that.

It’s also loads of fun, and from what we’ve heard and experienced, it’s a great way to unwind and let our all the negative energy that’s built up in you over the course of the day. Rebounding is an innovative kind of exercise, and many varied programs are available. Most of them are very convenient and they aren’t overwhelming.

For optimal performance of these exercises, a good piece of equipment is a must.
Cheap and low quality rebounder can pose a serious safety risk, in addition to reducing the effectiveness of your exercise regime. But to ensure your time doesn’t go to waste, we took the trouble of testing and reviewing the mini trampolines available on the Canadian market, and we’ve compiled a top-10 list of the most popular and best-performing rebounders on the market. We took everything into account – the pricing, performance, looks, warranties, and more, so you can be confident in the impartial nature of our reviews. Read on to find out which rebounder would suit your needs the best, and remember – the earlier you begin exercising, the more benefits you’ll reap!


 

Stamina 36 Inch Folding Trampoline

Weight limit: 250 lbs.*

Our Rating: 3.9/5

This is a fairly generic-looking mini trampoline from a company with a similarly unexciting name. But here at Protrampolines, we give every trampoline a fighting chance, even if our spidey senses tell us something’s off. In this case, however, our skepticism was unwarranted. And then again, this is Amazon #1 most sold mini trampoline. So, why not give it a shot?

stamina mini trampoline

Well, as it turns out, you shouldn’t judge a book by its covers. Stamina is a competent trampoline manufacturer, if rather minor, but their products are usually solid. This trampoline represents a lower end of the range. Better models cost extra, but they come with loads of extra features.

The trampoline comes with a black mat and a silver skirt. The mat is standard polypropylene, but it isn’t inferior in quality. The safety pad is generously thick.

The trampoline can be folded in half, but the job is not easy at all. At least two people should try to fold it the first few times, as the cords will try to spring into the folded position.

The weight limit is surprisingly generous at 250 lbs., meaning that practically anyone can exercise on this rebounder. The frame is all-steel, contributing to the high weight limit. A total of six legs with rubberized caps keeps the trampoline stable so that it doesn’t slide.

Interestingly for this price range, the trampoline doesn’t use springs, opting for elastic bungee cords instead. These rubber bands are silent, but there are issues concerning their lifespan. If you’re on the higher end of the weight limit, you might experience a vastly reduced lifespan with cords breaking within the first year of use.

The rebounder had to be assembled. There are 20 parts in total that you need to assemble, and the instructions provide handy schematic drawings along with step-by-step instructions. The trampoline itself is surprisingly light. The process takes an hour or two but it’s simple to follow. The manual comes with basic but handy workout programs to try out before you go branch out and look for something more advanced.

The warranty isn’t top notch, though. It’s only 90 years on all parts except the frame, which comes with a 1-year warranty. Warranty claims are handled via post or phone – 1 (800)375-7520. The manufacturer also sells spare parts which can be ordered in the same way.

All in all, this is a well-polished trampoline considering its low price point. It is sturdy and firm. The bounce is respectable for the type of springs – some 6 inches – and the overall stability is adequate. The instructions are well-put and the design choices the manufacturer made make sense. However, do note that the warranty period is quite short and that there were reports of cords snapping after use by people with over 200 lbs. Perhaps the weight limit was too optimistically set.

There are no handlebars or other accessories, so the package is as bare as it can get. But it’s a solid package overall. We don’t recommend the trampoline if you’re over 200 lbs, but we feel it’s a good buy for more petite among us.

Pros:

  • Fantastic value

Cons:

  • Short warranty
  • Misleading weight limit

Marcy Cardio Trampoline Trainer (40”)

Weight limit: 250 lbs.

Our Rating: 4/5

Marcy is a sub-brand of Impex, itself a fairly unknown producer. There is quite a tradition to the company, and it’s all health and exercise related, so we aren’t just talking about a reseller of generic Chinese rebounders.

The trampoline doesn’t look to exciting, with various shades of black, but it doesn’t lack refinement and it doesn’t look like it would break if you look at it the wrong way. marcy cardio fitness rebounder

This 40 inch trampoline comes with a hefty weight limit of 250 lbs., but as with the previous model, the Stamina 36 inch trampoline, we’d advise you to take it with a grain of salt. While it seems to be sturdily built, we came across some reports of legs breaking, even with regular usage patterns. The legs are generally stable and we experienced no unexpected lateral movements while rebounding. Due to rubber springs, the rebounder is very quiet, without squeaking sounds.

There are no metal springs, rubber rebound bands are used instead. This has become somewhat of a trend lately, and we feel the choice mostly comes to your personal preference, as the bouncing feel is somewhat different. Bungee springs are more elastic and bouncy, but you bottom out sooner and can’t rebound as fast as with spring trampolines, but in this case, there isn’t as much bounce. Bear in mind that these rubber cords need replacing more often, as they’re not as sturdy as metal springs.

The safety bar can be moved up and down, but not by much. 30 inches from the mat is its lower setting, and about it can go about 5 inches up, but it does let you perform a wider variety of exercises. Bear in mind that you should take down the bar is children are bouncing, although the manufacturer has intended the trampoline for ages 13 and up.

We liked how the trampoline is 4-ways foldable, saving a lot of space. However, it’s difficult for a single person to fold and unfold. The installation of a handle bar is also very difficult, more so due to practically useless instruction booklet. You do get all the necessary tools, including the Allen wrench for the handle bar. The handle bar has too much give even if you tighten it down well, it annoyed us to no end.

The rebounder doesn’t come with any exercise instructions or CDs. Take care that you don’t tear off the cover during installation, but it will deteriorate with use anyway. The warranty period is surprisingly good, lasting for two years from the date of purchase.

Overall, we found that, while the trampoline performs adequately, it did not impress us. There are better competitors around offering much better performance for your money – it simply feels too budget for the asking price. You do get a handle bar with this model, and it’s fairly large, but don’t expect too much.

Pros:

  • Comes with handlebar
  • 4-way foldable
  • Quiet

Cons:

  • Not the best-buy option

MaXimus Pro Quarter Folding Rebounder

Weight limit: 300 lbs.

Our Rating: 4.7/5

A quick look at this trampoline set the bar very high. Originally British, this model sold very well in the US, and we expect it to perform similarly in Canada. The feature set is rich and the rebounder make a lot of promises. But can it deliver on them?

It sports a very classic design, but that’s a design that exudes confidence. A non-slip black mat and safety skirt are accented with silver frame parts. maximus pro rebounder

The bounce is excellent for the purpose. We are fans of old school springs, 36 in this case, and this one has large enough springs that facilitate quick rebounding with minimal stress to the joints. They do squeak a bit at first – much more than the rubber springs – but you get a small jar of lubricant to lube up the springs so they stay quiet. You’ll have to do it every now and then for optimal performance – Vaseline works just fine.

It comes with a handle bar set 36 inches from the jumping surface. The rebounder is stable and sturdy, and the legs don’t wiggle around – neither does the handle bar.

We weren’t surprised by the high weight limit of 300 lbs. (137 kg), as the rebounder is constructed of good quality, high-grade parts. The weight limit is as advertised, and can be safely used by individuals within that limit.

The trampoline is foldable. You can fold the legs against the bottom of the trampoline and fold it in half for storage. Well, you can’t, actually. It takes *two* people to do it as the springs resist really hard – it’s their job, after all. It comes with a nifty storage bag to protect it against dust and bugs, but you can also use it to carry it around if need be, as the trampoline is very small when properly folded. It’s not the easiest rebounder to carry, though, as it weighs 12 kilograms.

As added value, you get lots of stuff. First, take a look at a workout DVD with three plans and exercises to try out, ranging from beginner to advanced exercise. Some of these can be quite demanding for beginners, so consider yourself warned.

You also get a set of resistance bands and sand weights for a wider selection of exercises you can perform. There’s a lot in the package, really. It’s also easy to assemble and the instructions are top-notch; so is the customer service. All parts are replaceable so this can be considered as a long-term investment of sorts.

The trampoline should be registered online for warranty claims. The warranty is a tad lackluster, with a year on the frame, 6 month on the springs and the mat, and three months on everything else.

However, we were delighted with the price tag. The asking price is very fair for such a premium, well-made piece of exercise equipment with tons of extras. If you’re looking for a good all-around rebounder that will keep you in motion for a long time to come, you’ve found your match.

Pros:

  • Lots of accessories
  • Quality made
  • Nice bounce
  • Good instructions

Cons:

  • A bit bulky

Sunny Health Foldable Fitness Trampoline, 40”

Weight limit: 250 lbs.

Our Rating: 3.9/5

We had the opportunity to try out this 40 inch trampoline with a very cheerful name. Is it cheap and cheerful enough for you, dear trampoline purveyor? Well, read on to find out.

The trampoline is a standard-looking 40 inch trampoline with 28 inches of bouncing surface. We’re not expecting miracles when it comes to the looks of rebounders, but just a bit of creativity could go a long way. Be that as it may, it’s not unpleasant to look at. sunny-health

The manufacturer claims a weight limit of 250 lbs, and it seems about right. They also warn against using it outside. The stability bar is weirdly made, almost going through the centre of the trampoline, which limits its usability. It can be adjusted to 40, 45 and 50 inches from the surface. The mat is made of polypropylene, the standard among trampolines.

There are 32 metal coiled springs in total. We felt that you can use this in an apartment as they aren’t too squeaky, but they can be lubricated if you find them too noisy. Sometimes these springs can unhook, especially after folding, and they’re extremely difficult to hook back manually.

There’s a total of 13 parts to set up. Make sure to find a companion to help you unfold the trampoline. It’s mighty difficult to do alone. The instructions are rather basic, but functional and understandable. The assembly went without major issues. There are no tools in the box, as they aren’t needed for assembly. The rebounder comes with a storage bag. We are easily won over with these simple accessories that make your life so much easier; however, you don’t get any exercise DVDs – off to youtube with you!

While the rebounder is technically foldable, the legs aren’t, so you’d have to disassemble them. This is time-consuming so you might want to opt for something more user-friendly is space is at a premium at your home.

Note the 90 day warranty, which isn’t top notch, but the company is reputable and they can be reached and contacted easily. The replacement parts are pricey compared to the cost of the trampoline as a whole.

While serviceable, we weren’t too excited about this trampoline: there have been reports of inconsistent quality and the warranty is short. However, nothing was particularly wrong with our model and we were okay with how it performed. You essentially get a basic, 40 inch rebounder without too much accessories. While *technically* foldable, it’s not easy to do and it’s best considered as non-foldable. If these drawbacks don’t concern you too much, you might find this trampoline adequate. We also feel it’s good for undemanding users that think a 36 inch trampoline such as the Stamina Trampoline are too small.

Pros:

  • Solid all-around performance
  • Price

Cons:

  • Inconsistent quality
  • Short warranty
  • Difficult to fold down

Jumpsport Model 250 Rebounder

Weight limit: 220 lbs.

Our Rating: 4.5/5

 

JumpSport is a manufacturer widely known for its quality trampolines with original design and high-grade parts. They have made quite a name for themselves with quality customer service and watertight warranty agreements. We were eager to try and see if their rebounders are just as good.

Jumpsport has a whole palette of mini trampoline models, with Model 250 being the most “entry-level” among them. But it’s not really entry level at all. There’s plenty of nifty features and smart design choices.  jumpsport 250 mini trampoline

By looking at this trampoline you can see it doesn’t share the design of many other rebounders. It features curved legs that enhance its stability. As a result, it can withstand a truly large range of motion and is much harder to tip over.

The bungee cords are plainly visible, but they are covered with thick petal safety pads. The total jumping surface is 35.5 inches, while the total size is 39 inches. The mat itself is 30 inches in diameter, although even the skirt can be used for exercise if need be. The mat is made of Permatron material, which doesn’t stretch and is more durable than regular polypropylene mats. The rebounder cannot be folded.

The 16-gauge steel used in the frame is powder-coated to help prevent rust, but it should be a non-issue as this is an indoor trampoline. We enjoyed the bounce provided by this rebounder. There are 30 elastic cords in total, called EnduroLast 2 cords, each 8 mm wide. They are really quiet; there is no squeaking or other unpleasant sounds. The bounce is very soft and pleasant. It’s a joy to exercise on this rebounder. A weight limit of 250 lbs. is in line with other rebounders – and we trust this figure, unlike with some other cheap models.

Unfortunately, you cannot adjust the firmness setting on this trampoline; that option is reserved for the more expensive models, but in theory, the cords are replaceable with higher grade ones, so you could do it, although it wouldn’t be cheap.

You don’t get a handle bar, but a complimentary DVD with basic workouts comes in the box. It’s not particularly helpful, but it is a useful introduction to rebounding. We liked the warranty – lifetime on the steel parts, 5 years on the mat, 2 years on the elastic cords and a year on everything else. Be prepared to replace these cords as they can and do snap. The assembly process was smooth and took less than 10 minutes. The instructions are clear and helpful.

Now, don’t get us wrong. This is a fantastic rebounder offering excellent performance and build quality, but it definitely isn’t our best-buy model. It cannot be folded and does not come with a handle bar, making it unwieldy for use by some. It has to be purchased separately and costs extra. If this doesn’t bother you, however, you get one of the best-performing rebounders there is, with fantastic warranty and customer support, though without any other additional features.

Pros:

  • Excellent build quality
  • Great performance
  • Innovative design
  • Quiet

Cons:

  • Cannot be folded
  • No extras
  • Too expensive

Jumpsport Model 370 Rebounder

Weight limit: 250 lbs.

Our Rating: 4.8/5

The Jumpsport Model 370 presents an upgrade of the previous, lower-end model codenamed 250. It sports the same size as the Model 250 – of about 40 inches (42 if you count the protruding legs) and carries a hefty prize premium over its sibling. Is it worth it?

At first, you can’t see many differences. The size is largely the same. The only giveaway is the silver steel round frame. It is triple coated to ensure longevity and resistance to moisture, but the steel is the same, 16-gauge. jumpsport model 370

This one also features arched legs for extra stability, which helps prevent the trampoline from tipping over. The safety pads are likewise petal-looking. They also represent useful bouncing area, but we prefer bouncing on the sturdy Permatron mat. The maximum weight limit is 250 lbs.

Now, this trampoline really shines when it comes to the springs, or more precisely, bungee cords. It features an upgraded model of the Jumpsport proprietary EnduroLast cords. Instead of the EnduroLast 2 used in Model 250, this one features adjustable EnduroLast 4 adjustable cords. These allow for seven firmness setting, so anyone can adjust the trampoline to their own liking. This is especially important if people with different body weights bounce on the trampoline, as each will prefer somewhat different settings. Various settings will affect the firmness of the bounce, and consequently how fast you bounce and exercise.. This lets you tailor the firmness setting based on the exercise requirements.

The content on the DVD has also been upgraded and it features 4 comprehensive exercise programs. You can actually use this one for quite a while and it provides decent results, at least until you get bored of it and move on to something better.

Just like Model 250, this trampoline also cannot be folded, which can make storage difficult. Bear that in mind if you live in an apartment. On the other hand, it is very quiet, much more than spring-based trampolines like MaXimus Pro Quarter Folding Trampoline. The assembly is simple, in fact the same as the Model 250. Installation videos are available on the manufacturer’s website.

The warranty is comparable to that of the Model 250, except you get 4 years of warranty on the elastic cords, as they are of higher spec than in the cheaper model. They are also less prone to breaking.

This trampoline really is what the 250 should have been. It offers a comprehensive package with plenty of premium features, except for the stability bar which still costs extra. Our only gripe is the price – this trampoline is a significant investment and it definitely isn’t fit for everyone. More serious and professional users will be able to get the most out of this mini trampoline.

Pros:

  • Fantastic performance
  • Good looks
  • Adjustable elastic cords

Cons:

  • Pricey
  • No handle bar (can be bought separately)

Pure Fitness Mini Rebounder, 38”

Weight limit:

Our Rating: 2.9/5

Even though it has the word “mini” in its name, it is actually a middle sized rebounder with its diameter of 38 inches. Could the “mini” be the term you could apply in relation to its quality? We’re here to help you find out.

The trampoline looks nice, if a bit understated. The pad fabric is nice sliver color, while the mat is black with appealing letters that spell out the brand name. pure fitness mini trampoline-rebounder

This is a smallish trampoline when it comes to is height, with only 9 inches of distance from the ground. It’s not recommended for children under 13, though. The trampoline doesn’t fold in half. The total rated weight limit is 220 lbs. There is ample cushioning in the spring pads.

The package looks appealing at first, but there are certain design flaws. The trampoline uses springs to provide rebound, which is fine in itself. However, these springs are joined to the trampoline as a set of two (still okay), via a small metal part that attaches to the straps on the mat. Now that is this rebounder’s Achilles heel. These straps are simply too flimsy and cannot bear the stresses that regular bouncing puts on them, so they break. Meaning that the springs, though functioning correctly, no longer attach to the rebounder, thus rendering it all but useless.

These reports pop about so often that we are very hesitant to suggest you purchase this. Some have also found out that several parts were missing from their boxes. This is all indicative of poor quality control at the factory. Still, we have to be fair and report that actual bouncing is fine… when it works.

Customer support is also very helpful and they will send replacement parts or even whole trampolines, but that’s very little consolation when you’re stuck with a non-functioning unit for a while. The return period is 90 days, but the warranty period is the same at 90 days, which is quite short.

Assembly is tricky. The tool that you get in the box can’t get the job done and the final two legs are very difficult to set up.

We are sad to say that we do not recommend this trampoline if you’re looking for something which is consistent in quality. There are just too many lemons around, and even if you do get lucky, there’s no guarantee it won’t fail in a couple of months. This is unfortunate, since the overall level of performance isn’t bad at all.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Looks nice
  • Good customer support

Cons:

  • Serious reliability issues
  • Bad quality control

ProForm Fitness Trampoline

Weight limit: 250 lbs.

Our Rating: 1.9/5

Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen our fair share of shoddy trampolines, and we broke out in cold sweat when we saw the box this bad boy came in. We’re in for a ride, exclaimed one of our colleagues who seems to delight in trying out the worst of the worst. Well, he wasn’t wrong. If you’re looking for a trampoline to purchase, just scroll down further. If you’re looking for a grisly tale, then read on…

To begin with, the trampoline comes in black, which actually fit our mood well after we had assembled it. Once you manage it, however, it somehow manages to perform. Bouncing is nothing special, but exceeded our remarkably low expectations. We feel that the spring cover will deteriorate quickly with use, but this problem is not exclusive to ProForm trampoline. proform fitness trampoline

Unfortunately, even after you go through the trouble of assembling it, you run the risk of it breaking real soon, not unlike the Pure Fitness Rebounder. The springs connect to the mat via a low quality fabric loop that breaks often and early. When that happens, you get a useless trampoline, with no way to replace a damaged part. There is a weight limit of 250 lbs, though you should take it with a grain of salt.

Back on to the arduous assembly process. There are no instructions to speak of, or at least no useful instructions. You get a lousy piece of paper with undecipherable hieroglyphs that are supposed to help you understand the installation process. Well, they don’t. They are dangerous and you shouldn’t follow them at all.

The tools don’t help much, too. The spring loading tool is a joke, and it is so bat that you might accidentally hurt yourself while installing it. We read reports by people using mallets to set it up and exclaiming there’s nothing wrong with that – well of course there is! Don’t even begin to set it up without a screwdriver. There have been reports of missing parts, so the deck could be stacked against you even before you start. Not our idea of a fun afternoon.

You might have guessed that there are no workout DVDs or additional extras thrown in – but you’d be wrong. You actually get a DVD and an 8-week meal plan (digital download).

It’s really cheap, but in this case you do get what you pay for, actually even less. If you want a budget trampoline that does not pose an injury risk, take a look at the Stamina 36 inch trampoline. We are unsure how such a large manufacturer of sports goods, Icon, managed to produce such a disappointing rebounder.

Pros:

  • Cheap
  • Comes with a nutrition plan

Cons:

  • Dangerous and difficult to assemble
  • Missing parts
  • Bad customer support service

Relaxdays Foldable Fitness Trampoline with Handle

Weight limit: 220 lbs.

Our Rating: 4.3/5

CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE

This is one of the newest rebounders available on the market and in this review. We haven’t heard of the name “Relaxdays” so we took it upon us to do some research. Turns out the rebounder is made by a German company. This doesn’t have to mean much, so a test was in order.

Alright. Once assembled, the trampoline is a breath of fresh air. Instead of consisting of black and blacker parts, this one has a lively blue safety skirt that’s eye-catching. It looks sturdy and the balance bar in a tad different than in other rebounders. relaxdays mini trampoline

The trampoline is metric-sized, with a width of 102 cm, which amounts to slightly above 40 inches. That’s quite large for a rebounder. There is about 70 centimetres of useful jumping surface overall. With the stability bar, it is 126 centimetres high. But it’s not too bulky, weighing 9 kilograms. Unlike most other rebounders, this is rated ages 3 and up – although we would advise against that, as there is no enclosure and the stability bar needs to be removed before kids bounce on it, since it is set too high for them and they cannot reach it.

It is for indoor use only, and while it looks well-made, we wouldn’t expose it to rain or snow since we are unsure of its rustproofing, and generally it has a negative effect on the integrity of the rubber bands. The blue spring cover is nice, but it’s not made of quality materials. It crackles and doesn’t feel nice to touch. Overall, the metal structure is well-made, with strong, welded joints. It definitely can withstand the weight limit of od 100 kg (220 lbs), and likely even more.

There are no springs; this mini trampoline also relies on rubber bands to provide bounce. The bands are sensibly attached to the mat with the help of sturdy plastic parts that attach to the mat fabric. Overall, good design which we believe is reliable. It is very quiet.

We liked how the bar was designed, with two handles protruding form a single-pole bar. This makes for simple assembly, but the bar can be wobbly. Do not rely on it too much – the trampoline can tilt forwards, which is very unpleasant and can occur especially if you set the bar to its highest position. But the trampoline itself is very stable thanks to rubberized wide feet.

It is easy to assemble and dismantle. Its foldable construction lends itself to stowing for longer periods of time when not in use, but you have to remove the legs and the stability bar, so the process, while simple, takes time. You also get two replacement rubber bands in the package. There is a 30 day hassle-free return period. Overall warranty situation is unclear, as the supplier is German. However, your vendor will be able to assist you further as long as you keep the receipt.

We were pleasantly surprised with this trampoline, which turned out to be a “dark horse” of this comparison. It’s pleasant to bounce on, extremely sturdy, foldable and comes with detailed instructions. We recommend this trampoline if you don’t mind the sometimes inadequate stability bar – but you can take it down if it bothers you.

Pros:

  • Good build quality
  • Nice design
  • Very quiet
  • Replacement bands

Cons:

  • Wobbly stability bar

 


 

HEAVY DUTY Gold’s Gym Circuit Trainer Mini Trampoline, 36”

Weight limit: 200 lbs.

Our Rating: 4/5

We were eager to try out this trampoline as we got all pumped up by its name, mentioning words such as ‘heavy duty’ and making references to precious metals. We’re a curious bunch, so we had to try it out.

First of all, the design. It looks fresh, with its silver safety skirts, but otherwise it sports a similar design to other 36 inch rebounders. The frame is all steel and the legs come with anti-slip rubber feet. It features a 200 lbs. weight limit and we advise you to exercise caution if you’re near that number- 150 lbs would be more appropriate. golds gym mini trampoline

This mini trampoline comes with a nice sensor that measures calories burned, jumps performed and time elapsed while working out. It requires an AA battery to operate, and features a basic LCD screen. It is basic, but we were overjoyed with such an addition, especially at this rock bottom price point.

The 22 page instruction booklet is very good. It features detailed and clear instructions, which make the installation easier. Take care when assembling, and get someone to help you as the springs provide considerable resistance and can hurt you if you’re not careful. Make sure to secure it well after you unfold it! The trampoline is 4-way foldable, which is very convenient for storage and carrying. The booklet also features simple workout suggestions.

The trampoline held out well with use, although the silver fabric definitely won’t last for long, but it doesn’t affect the performance of the trampoline. The elastic bands aren’t of best quality, and we don’t feel they can last for too long, especially if a heavier person is to use it, and the bounce is better for lighter persons as the straps bottom out rather early. They are quiet though. We recommend that you fold down the trampoline when not in use, as that will markedly prolong its lifespan.

We also liked the addition of two resistance cords that you can fit and use for upper body exercise. The warranty is a year on the frame and 90 days on other parts. Not too great, but neither are other warranties, especially for budget rebounders.

If you’re in the market for a cheap rebounder – for example, if you want to try out rebounding but don’t want to commit by spending huge amounts of money – this is an excellent choice. It’s not the best, but provides decent enough performance at an extremely low price. It also comes with a workout sensor, which is fantastic. Our recommendation for beginners under 150 lbs – just don’t expect any miracles. It will serve you best if running on a rebounder is what you enjoy. Otherwise, take a look at the Stamina 36” rebounder, which is more solid but comes with less bells and whistles.

Pros:

  • Workout sensor
  • Looks nice
  • Very affordable
  • Resistance cords

Cons:

  • Low weight limit
  • Reliability issues
