Mini trampolines are a great way to get exercise, increase your overall health, and have fun! There are so many benefits to using a mini trampoline, or “rebounding” as it is officially known, it’s no wonder the industry is really booming. As the audience continues to grow for this type of all ages activity, Pure Fun has produced a great selection of mini trampolines, in addition to its current collection of full-sized trampolines.
First of all, we have the Pure Fun Mini Trampoline in the 38 inch size. It is advertised as being ideal for cardio workouts, with a weight capacity of 220 pounds. The 38 inch mini trampoline is constructed using a high quality polypropylene jumping surface, comes with a padded skirt to cover its 32 heavy-duty springs, and is completed with six hardened steel legs that detach for easy storage.
Pure Fun also offers a 40 inch model, which comes with or without a detachable handle for added balance and stability. The handle will adjust from 39 to 42 inches in height, and the trampoline itself is recommended for use by those 8 years and older. It is advertised as the fitness model, “ideal for aerobic and cardiovascular workout routines for the entire family,” useful for fat burning, strengthening muscle and overall conditioning. For those just entering the world of rebounding fitness, there are some truly great health benefits of Pure Fun Mini Trampolines.
There is a 44 inch mini trampoline as well, which provides a larger surface area and 38 springs for additional support. The main description seems to overlap for all three mini trampoline models, focusing on cardiovascular fitness, low impact exercise and family friendly use. The 44 inch jumping surface on this trampoline does seem to be preferred by those who are a little unsure of their balance, or who want more space in the target landing area.
While the majority of reviews on Amazon are very positive, with an average of 4.1 stars out of 5, there are some issues with the trampoline’s construction and company claims. One thing that stands out as a major negative is the recurring report that, despite the stated 220 pound limit, the trampoline is not actually built for adult use. On multiple occasions the trampoline was touted as a great product for younger children, but when reviewers were over the hundred pound mark, the complaints about spring breakage increased substantially. Most of the Pure Fun Mini Trampoline’s negative reviews are directly related to the quality of the springs, based on the weight claims made by the company.
That being said, the Pure Fun Mini Trampoline continues to receive rave reviews. This reviewer made her original post in December of 2010, but an update from March of 2012 shows she is still very happy with her purchase, and even weighs more than the reported limit of one hundred pounds! It would seem that the overall customer satisfaction remains high, although a good portion of reviews are from adults who have purchased the mini trampolines for children, and not necessarily for their own cardiovascular workouts.
For a nice, lower price point, Pure Fun offers some great mini trampolines for both children and those beginning their rebounding journey. Make sure you research your options, and know exactly what aspects are key for you personally before you make your purchase, and you should be very satisfied with your mini trampoline!
