Am I fit to rebound?

It is your personal responsibility to consult with the physician/medical expert prior to starting this exercise. Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes are used at your own risk. You may feel a bit dizzy or lightheaded after your first few times using KJ rebound shoes. Your body may just need some time to adjust to this new type of movement. You should stop working out if you feel faint or dizzy. If these feelings continue for several workouts, contact your doctor. Stop jumping immediately if you notice unusual shortness of breath, pain in your chest, or other warning signs with your health. Contact doctor immediately.

Are there contraindications?

As with any other type of fitness or sport, there are some contraindications with KJ Fitness Programs. They are not permitted while pregnant due to the relatively high intensity of the performance of rebounding. As well as contraindicated for the categories of people with cervical spondylosis. Always consult doctor/medical expert before taking part in any kind of exercise.

See Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire.

Can I fall? Are the boots safe?

Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes are designed to be very safe and suitable for all kinds of surfaces. Losing balance and falling is the most common fear in participants. However, KJ rebound shoes are very safe. It only takes a few minutes to get used to the boots and find the centre of gravity. In no time you will catch yourself running and jumping around with a big smile on your face. 

What should I know before?

KJ shoes are very easy to use. Wear comfortable sports clothing (ladies - sports bra), thick or double calf length cotton socks. Always put the boots on and take off while seated. Fasten the buckles so that you hear a small click. Do not make them too tight, readjust immediately if you feel discomfort. Stand up slowly, looking ahead. Start marching and then light jogging in place, jumping from one foot to the other. Move the center of gravity on the entire foot, not just on toes or heels, legs are best placed shoulder-width apart.

Overweight/Sedentary lifestyle?

Kangoo Jumps may be for you! Excess weight puts extra stress on the joints that support the body, especially hips and knees. By wearing KJ rebound shoes you lighten the stress by 80%. The lower part of the boots - Impact Protection System - helps counteract the effect of overweight on your joint structures. The excessive pressure exerted by the overweight is absorbed during the compression of the boots, freeing your joints from  unnecessary stress. Exercise with pleasure and feel the freedom of movement!

Weak bladder/Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence can be caused by everyday habits, underlying medical conditions or physical problems. A thorough evaluation by your doctor can help determine what's behind your incontinence. Also, extra weight increases pressure on bladder and surrounding muscles, which weakens them and allows urine to leak out when you cough, sneeze. Similar may happen when performing in Kangoo  Jumps class. We advise you to empty the bladder just minutes before the exercise and wear incontinence liners / sanitary pads.

Why KJ is so effective for weight loss?

Scientifically proven, you will spend about 20-25% more calories during KJ workout compared to a similar workout done with conventional shoes. With a regular practice of KJ, the lymphatic system is stimulated and the metabolism improves, promoting the increased transfer of nutrients and oxygen, and elimination of toxins from the body. The basal metabolic rate is becoming more and more effective, resulting in significant improvements in muscle tone and weight management. Once the basal metabolism accelerates, you will burn more calories, even at rest!

Feeling any discomfort/pains?

Although a very few may feel any discomfort while exercising on KJ, it is normal to feel some discomfort in your shoulders, lower back and feet during the first sessions. This is due to the correction of posture that occurs on the boots. Training on KJ boots has the virtue of naturally realigning the body and correcting imbalances in your posture, pronation, supination. This discomfort/pains are not worrying if they eventually fade or disappear over regular workouts. The body adjusts slowly and we must give it a chance to adapt. If the pain persists, you may need to use special alignment soles or speak to your physician/medical expert.

Eating/Drinking before Kangoo Jumps workout.

Always follow a healthy meal plan, stay hydrated throughout the day. Avoid/limit drinks like caffeinated coffee, tea, and sodas, which may increase urination a couple of hours before the scheduled class. But don’t limit water intake! Avoid full/heavy meals at least 2-3 hours before the scheduled class. Digestion is important, it precedence over other body functions. Some participants complain about the stitch while exercising. It is often caused by digestion. Stay hydrated throughout and after the class. 

Hard compression in NEW boots?

At their first use, the boots will be very rigid and that is a very normal sign. A break-in period is required as the boots and all the components are new, and they have to adapt to your body weight. During the first session Impact Protection System (IPS) will soften and become normal. The best way to start using your new pair of KJ's is with a walk and then gentle jog. Try 4-8 single foot jumps on each leg.

Hire or buy my own KJ boots?

You can always hire a pair for the session from your instructor to see how you feel and is this something for you. However, it is very handy if you have your own pair as you can exercise whenever you have free time and wherever you are. Go to the top of the page KJ Products and choose your very special pair.
