breaking my knee, I was told I had to stop running forever. Kangoo
Jumps have allowed me to continue running. I would be happy to do
anything to help you improve your product, they are an absolute must
I said Kangoo Jumps have meant the difference between being able to
continue a life time of running and never running again. I would be
honored if you use my testimonial. Please let me know if you need more
info on what happened.
am a city manager. I manage the City of Angels Camp, Calaveras County,
California. In addition, I am a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army
Reserve. Last year I completed a two year assignment as a battalion
commander. Kangoo Jumps helped me train for the Army Physical Readiness
Test where I surpassed the maximum score and set the record for my
unit. Believe me that was no easy task for a 44 year old man, and given
my knee injury, it would have been impossible without the Kangoo Jumps.

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.
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
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
can't wait to go running in them again. :

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.
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.

You ask how we are progressing. Better than I expected, actually. I use
a Polar heart rate monitor/wristwatch and have done so for years. I
train by it and always keep track of things like heart rate, oxygen
intake, calorie burn, etc. Since using the boots, my oxygen intake and
heart rates have improved considerably. I am getting a much better
cardio workout with the boots than without them, and that is, in turn,
improving my time and endurance when I run without the boots. For
example, on a typical 6 mile run without the boots, I was burning an
average of 675-715 calories. With the boots, I am burning 825+ for the
same distance on the same course. After training a week straight with
the boots, my average heart rate during a timed run without the boots
has dropped by as much as 5 - 7 bpm, which translates into a longer and
faster run. Pretty cool. Mary's results are similar.
taking the boots to Mary's Spin class tonight because several of her
students have asked to see them. Last week we let a marathoner try
them. He laughed when he first saw them. After using them for about 5
minutes, he was hooked and no longer laughing.
recieved my Kangoo Jumps for Mother's Day 2005. I am aged 58.
In under a month I am up to 30 minutes of running. I could not get past
2-3 minutes jogging in runners.
