A strong and sturdy indoor trampoline for on-the-spot jogging
on 15 June 2011
The V-Fit GE2 Jogger Trampoline is a moderately sized indoor trampoline that is designed to be used as part of a regular workout regime (as opposed to being used by kids to play around on!). The diameter of the trampoline is just less than a metre, so it's small enough to fit into most rooms, but large enough to be used with ease by most adults. It can also be easily stored away up on its end, with the six legs adding just 20cm to its height.
Putting together the trampoline is a doddle. Just hand-screw on the six solid steel legs and you're ready to go...simple as that! Incidentally, each of the legs includes non-slip rubber feet to protect your floors and stop the trampoline shooting off anywhere.
The heavy duty nylon deck is certainly strong and hard wearing. We've had the trampoline for a few months now (during which it has had regular daily use), and we still can't see any sign of wearing on its tough black surface.
The springs themselves are very quiet, allowing you to use the trampoline whilst youngsters are sleeping, or whilst watching tv without drowning out any of the sound. If the springs do start to squeak, then a simple application of some WD40 or the like should sort it out (we haven't had to do this yet).
The flexibility of the nylon deck, as well as the give from the springs around its circumference, seems spot on for general jogging-on-the-spot use. To be honest, I'm no expert on the matter, but my wife happily bounces away whilst watching tv and it does her just fine!
The trampoline has a weight limit of 15.7 stones (100 kg), so for all those budding heavyweight boxers out there - be warned, this may not be suitable for you!
Also included is a brief instruction manual (it doesn't really need much in the way of guidance) which also includes basic safety and exercising information.
The attached video was taken when we first got the trampoline and shows the assembly, the body of the trampoline and the trampoline in use.
