My rebounder has been sitting in an outdoor storage room since I moved to this flat a year ago. I couldn't see how to fit it in the flat.

But I got Sparked by EO4 to challenge myself. Guess what? I have found a place. There is just enough room to set it up, and I'm in a ground floor flat so don't have to worry about anyone downstairs.

I just did 20 mins and am sweating!


I love in the UK and am 64yrs old. My main exercises are running and yoga. I have recently started cycling again and got more committed to strength training.

It may be bad--and I can see the pros and cons both ways--but I'm just a barefoot loving gal! Dance, rebounding, treadmill, stretching, strength training, pilates--barefoot as often as I can get away with it.

Thank you Julia. I have a couple of pair of slipper socks from the hospital. I might use those if need be. My Cellerciser came late today finally! Yay! I put it up pronto. I bounced on it for a few minutes with my bare feet. I still need to put the bar up on it, but will probably do that tomorrow.

I wear a Fitbit Inspire. Imagine my surprise when I thought it would be interesting to see if the bouncing would count as steps.

It does! That blew me away!

So now as I get acclimated to bouncing a few minutes a day in the early morning, and I can in more steps. And then throughout the day maybe do some bouncing off and on for a few minutes. I believe that I will grow stronger, but I am not going to over do, it's just unwise because the lymphatic system will be dumping loads of toxins to be gotten rid of, and so I will stay fairly well hydrated while so doing.

No need to purchase gripper socks!! Next time one of your friends goes to the hospital, hit 'em up for the safety socks that all hospital in-patients are required to have for slip protection! I have some I could send you (hahaha!) - unfortunately I don't have any still new in the bag. My mom might, as my step dad probably brought home 2 dozen pair in his lifetime... may be able to find them at thrift stores near the various hospitals and clinics...

I'm kinda teasing you, so don't take it all too seriously... but... ya never know, you might be able to find a pair free or cheap just for asking. People come home with those things with their hospital discharge papers and other "disposable equipment" used at the hospital or day surgery places.

I don't know how slick the cellucisor mat will be. Kinda depends on how much paint was silkscreened into the mat. I noticed early on with my Urban rebounder that when I rebounded in the summer time, even with fan on, my feet would get a bit sweaty and I'd sort of "stick" to the mat and I didn't like that feeling.... and then if I got to sweating, that made puddles on the mat, so then I felt slippery!! Either way was not a great feeling. So that's kinda why I have ended up with socks or shoes. (And I didn't have dogs in the house back when I bought the Urban Rebounder years ago. Those didn't come along until later. Daisy could care less about the rebounder and she's entirely too big to be on the rebounder. But Java likes to pop on and off while I am there. She doesn't jump once she is on. She just stands on the mat and lets me do all the work of bouncing both of us!! Then she just trots off!! Silly pup!!

Thank you for your response. I am going to be looking at some gripper or yoga socks and see if that's something I would prefer. Once my Cellercise arrives and I try it out barefoot for a few days, that will let give me a good idea if I want to purchase the socks.

Hi again!

I prefer rebounding in my bare feet as I find wearing athletic shoes too heavy and regular socks too slippery. However, I do understand that now special rebounding socks with grips on them are sold which makes me think that any socks with good grips would work.

I found another good article that discusses each option.

Hi!

I joined the team to find out which rebounder I should purchase. This was after visiting my older daughter in Florida who has a trampoline in her back yard for her two young boys, and just recently had a third baby boy. I got up and bounced, then did some jumping. It was so much fun! So that's I came to return to spark people once again.

Anyway, with the link that was provided by this team, I decided and purchased the Cellercise rebounder and am waiting for it to arrive this week.

I have a question. Do you wear shoes, special shoes, or socks when rebounding?

When I and the littles were on their outdoor trampoline with jump barefooted.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any information.
