    Sticky I will succeed!!!

    My sister had a mini-trampolines going spare before she moved to Australia, and I took it in like a good samaritan. But it's not been used yet!

    I swear that playing on my niece and nephew's trampoline at their house is helping me maintain a steady weight loss (because one of those weeks was not a good food week - trust me!).

    So, I thought I'd see how the mini-one fares.

    Reviews online sing their praises and say they're really effective at losing weight and toning, but fitness sites seem to vary a lot in what they say they can burn (calories seems to be how most of them work).

    Some say my weight and height = 600 calories in half and hour and others say 126 in same time.

    I'm more swayed to the lower end figure as it seems too good to be true to shift that many calories boucning in front of the TV right?

    I'm not fussed at whether it's a good calorie burner or not, just wanted to know if it's worth spending time on or whether doing a DVD or going for a jog is better use of time?

    Thanks xxx

    EDIT: I don't plan on 30 minutes - that's just the time the calculators gave me! And I will be using it with other stuff, like the DVDs, I meant was it worth doing less of this and more DVDs or jogging (if they're not much cop).

    Sorry - wasn't very clear x

    Chuffy_29 Bring it on!

    Hour and half on the trampoline is a long time to keep going, especially in the zone that you would need to be in to burn fat. I'd mix it up, do some trampoline, some DVD and some jogging. then you won't get bored, your body won't just expect one form of exercise and the weight will disappear :)

    Hi Chuffy -

    Don't worry, I won't be doing 30 minutes!!! That was just the period of time the calculator oozits gave me. I do stay on for that time when playing with my niece and nephew, but I would only do 20 minutes at home.

    I plan to use it in my routine and not rely on it solely - but if it's not as affective I'd probably do it less than the others if that makes sense!

    Sorry, I wasn't very clear up above *toddles of to edit post*

    Thanks for reply xx
