has anyone had any experience with Kangoo Jumps????...
they are boots made with springs under them, and they create a bouncing effect....they have been shown on various TV shows and
have a web site...supposed to provide exercise free of any stress on JOINTS....
?????

i'd be interested if anyone has any feedback about them...

I'd be wary of any fads. The elliptical machine, even though painful at times, is way less painful than even walking at a slow pace on the treadmill on my bad days. It doesn't do any jarring of the joints. I know you've had your experience with this machine, so I'm not trying to sound condescending. My gym has two different types of elliptical machines. One keeps your feet flat and KILLS my lower back. The other allows for a more natural movement of the feet in the tilted forward position when they are coming up. That one is great.

just read an article in NY Times today....
it is about Kangoo boots and exercise...
a woman from Bklyn is quoted as saying she has scoliosis, and
exercising with Kangoo is the only way she can run...that it has
made a big difference in allowing her to exercise...

interesting...
