Why are they so effective at weight loss?
As scientific studies show, you burn 25% more calories with Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes compared to the same exercises made with conventional shoes. However, this alone does not explain the dramatic weight loss that overweight individuals experience when they use Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes. The secret lies in the lymphatic systems: The lymph is the liquid which circulates in-between our cells, to carry the wastes and toxins out of our body and keeping it healthy.
Most of us are unaware that our bodies contain five times as much lymph fluid as blood. However our lymphatic system, which is also our immune system, does not have a pump (like the heart) to keep its liquid in motion. It depends on our natural movements for circulation! If we don’t move enough, excess levels of toxin actually clutters or poisons our lymphatic system. In some places the lymph fluid actually crystallizes into cellulite, which many of us know is hard to eliminate.
Rebound exercise, with Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes, has been found to be the most effective way to “re-prime the pump” and keep it going. The lymphatic system also monitors our metabolism. It’s hard to ignore that as we get older, we seem to put on more weight, which becomes harder and harder to lose. Studies have shown that our base metabolic rate (which is the rate that our bodies burn calories) decreases as our lymphatic system becomes less efficient. As our system improves, the increased transfer of nutrients and oxygen into each cell actually helps to remove toxins from our body.
With regular use of Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes, our base metabolic rate will become increasingly more efficient, resulting in noticeable improvements in our muscle tone, and weight management. In fact, we are actually re-training each cell to perform as it did when we were younger. Once we have re-set our metabolism, we will burn more calories at a higher rate, whether we are exercising or not! At least for a certain time.
What are the main parts of the body that will be firmed up?
With Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes, every single cell of your body gets a full workout. Which means that, all the muscles of your body are being firmed up simultaneously, with each bounce you do. N.A.S.A quotes "Rebound Exercise is the most efficient and effective form of exercise ever devised by man".
I am not sports-oriented, coordinated and overweight, can I use Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes?
Yes of course! Those people who are overweight and have not had any regular exercise for a period of time can start using Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes gradually. It is important to begin at a low impact level and modify with marching or light bouncing instead of jumping and making sure to take breaks as needed during class. Never exceed your level of comfort. As you regularly use Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes your metabolic rate will become increasingly more efficient… resulting in noticeable improvements in muscle tone, weight management and an enhanced feeling of well-being. In addition, your endurance will increase and you will be able to exercise for longer periods of time. As always, it is important to remember that before embarking on any new fitness regime, you should first consult your medical practitioner.

If I am experiencing discomfort in the arch of my foot, why?
It is normal for first time users of Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes to experience some discomfort. This is due to the fact that the user is exercising muscles that they may not have used for some time and the foot needs a little time to adapt. However, some users do experience discomfort in the arches of their feet if they have fallen arches or flat feet. In which case, we recommend that you use a support inside the Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes.
If this is not the case with you, then it may be that you just need to continue to use the Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes. Your foot will adapt and the discomfort will go away. We must stress though, that if the arch of your foot is rubbing and it feels like you may get a blister?

Additional FAQ’s for people who own their own Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes:
My buckles are stiff, what can I do to loosen them?
When your buckles are difficult to snap, they are lacking lubricant. The buckles need only a very slight amount of lubricant. Usually, if you apply a very small amount of silicone lubricant to the metal hook below the buckle, this will solve the problem. Never use car oil or similar to lubricate your buckles and never get oil on your soles.
How often should I replace the tension springs?
This is the component that needs the most attention. We recommend that you replace your T-springs after approximately 50 to 80 Hours of use. You can extend the life of your T-Springs by cleaning the shell junction area regularly, especially if you use your Kangoo Jumps Rebound Shoes outside or on dusty or sandy paths. To remove dust, use a clean paint brush and brush away any accumulated debris from the junction point. It is also a good idea to Turn your T-Springs occasionally. You will not get an effective rebound from a T-Spring that is heavily worn.
Why has my Shell Broken?
It is normal for shells to break after a certain period of time, which may vary depending on various factors. The material has its limits. If however, your shell has broken within the 3 month warranty period, it is possible that this breakage is due to an injection problem in the material and your broken shell will be replaced free of charge.
