People ask me about
the Kangoo Jumps all the time and have inquired over the years as to
how to sell them!- they enable me to walk without pain (I have 5
herniated disks in my back and neck and bad knees).
It has been more than 7 years ago that I bought a pair of Kangoo Jumps
for myself and my daughter at Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego. The
kiosk is LONG gone, my daughter has outgrown her's, I still wear them
regularly. and people stop me all the time!

I am absolutely hooked
on the kangoos and I would not contemplate running in anything else. I
have no background in fitness; I am an ordinary relatively fit person,
but I have never liked jogging because of the bad effect it had on my
neck and lower back.
Years ago I purchased a rebounder but found jumping on the spot rather
tedious. When I came across the kangoos
I thought I found the perfect tool to get fitter without being bored: I
could rebound and at the same time be outside in the park and on the
I have been using them only for a couple of months and I am enjoying
them so much that the benefits I get out of them are outweighing the
initial embarrassment of seemingly being the only one in them!
(Although yesterday I was at a party and somebody told me there is
another girl jumping in the Clapham area!)
The last couple of times I used them, I ran 10 km which for a new
runner like me is a great achievement.
In fact I am thinking of running the marathon next year, as you gather
the kangoos are sold to me!

I was probably the last person to buy a pair of boots from you on
Sunday at fit camp. Yes, that?s me the one with the dodgy ankle.
I was diagnosed with arthritis in the left ankle about 10 years ago and
the joint is slowly eroding. As the shin bone compacts down on to the
ankle I?m sure you can appreciate that the pain from exercise is
getting slowly worse. Like most men with an injury I haven?t taken the
medical advice to stop all impact exercising (that would be dull) but
continued to exercise at a lower level. I still run occasionally and
teach aerobics (the class have to work and I do low impact!) but in the
last year my ankle has been far less tolerant.
When I read about your boots before going to Fit Camp I was sceptical
but after running in them on Saturday for 40 minutes with no pain
(cannot remember the last time I did that) I was jubilant. I did your
TTR session on Sunday and again no pain.
I?ve just used them on my treadmill and again no problems even better
some friends and family have given me the money to pay for them as a
Brilliant product! I hope they make you very rich.
If you want to use this as a reference or give my e-mail address out to
people who want proof of how good they are then feel free.
Many many thanks.

My name is Trish
Scott. I am a distributor of Kangoo Jumps and located in Langley,
(Vancouver) British Columbia,Canada.
I too have
rehabilitated on the Kangoo Jumps. I was down to 20% function in my hip
after years of running and teaching fitness classes. Within a very few
weeks on the Kangoo Jumps I was back to 90% function. That was 2+ years
ago. I continue to run daily (pain free).
With my client
referrals (from practitioners) I have had great success with people
recovering from various back and joint ailments as well as people with
previous ACL surgeries who are able to run again for the first time. I
even sold a pair to a fellow with a prosthesis a few years ago at a
wellness clinic. He was able to run for the first time.
My observations with
my participants in my run clinics have been really exciting as well. I
have observed running postures improve, pronation and supinations start
to correct, etc.

I forgot to tell you
and Denis my greatest testimony.
Prior to using the
KJ's, I had injuries in my right knee and hip, which prevented me from
running. In addition, I have a herniated disc in my lower back which
causes Sciatica in the nerve running down the back of my leg. I was
unable to jog or run without pain in the knee and hip, so I ceased from
running for about two years. Since purchasing and using the KJ's, I no
longer have any pain in my knee or hip, and the disc in my lower back
no longer causes any problems. Mind you, that I run everyday outdoors
for an hour at an aerobic pace of 140-150 BPM. I can only contribute
this rehabilitation to the KJ's, which I believe have strengthened the
muscles, joints, and ligaments in these areas. Needless to say, I am
very pleased with the results, and happy that I can once again enjoy
running pain free!

have a prolapsed disk in my L45 region of my back. The only way I jog
is in KJs, and I love them!

Where did you first
see Kangoo Jumps?: This website- recommended by an orthopedic surgeon
Remarks: I have had my
K-Jumps for six months now and I love them! They have allowed me to run
again after eight years of knee problems, frustration and even
Many people ask me about them and are impressed. I will keep
recommending K-Jumps to them!

I have kangoojumps and now I am in online business. We sell medical
supplies and medical equipment and I would like to put your banner on
our website because I think your product is great.
I had a car accident 6 month ago and now I can only run with
kangoojumps and they are great.

Got my Kangoos today
and despite the British weather (lots of rain) I decided to brave it
out and give them a go. Being 6ft 3" without the shoes I feel like a
giant in them but they were superb, and a quick go round the block soon
turned into a 7 mile run.
I didn't have the knee
support on that I usually wear with my other running shoes and I didn't
have the slightest twinge what so ever on my bad knee.
I think I am probably
the only person with a pair around here as boy did everyone stare and
look at them as I was running. No end of kids / teenagers I passed
asked me where I got them from and commented, "They are mint".
I can't wait to go
running in them again. :
