Tempo Mini Trampoline
I was pleasantly shocked at the high quality of this item for a mere $43 in a world where people often pay $30 for a dumb strip of rubber to go around their iphone. This is really well designed, easy to set up and very rugged. I compared it to another brand (@ Walmart for $39) and there's no contest as the Walmart one truly is cheap, having only 4 legs, chintzy fabric and fewer springs. There are times when an extra $3 makes a huge difference and this is one of them.

Excellent for toddlers not just adults
I bought this for my daughter's 3rd birthday. She loves it!!!! At first I was concerned that it did not have as much bounce as an actual toddler trampoline but I did find it safer because it is a little more stiffer. Had she had the toddler trampoline, I am sure she would bounce off it and hurt herself...I guess that is one of the reasons why there is a handle on those ones.
Anyway, aside from my daughter loving it, I tried it too and it is great for a quick workout!
I would highly recommend this compared to other mini trampolines like the Bodybreak mini-trampoline which requires assembly and does not fold. The extra $10 for the Tempo mini trampoline is worth it for the fact that it is pre-assembled and moreso because of the fact that it actually folds away for storage!!!

decent mini trampoline for the price
I bought this in December 2011 - this is my first trampoline, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money in case I didn't like/use it. I have used it every day, mostly in the mornings right after I wake up and occasionally when I get home at the end of the day.
Last month two spring coils broke. Since it has a one yr warranty, It will be exchanged for a new one.
Oh...and setting this up was not difficult, did it myself in 15 minutes.
When and if I have money to burn I will invest in a non-metal coil trampoline. But in the mean time, this mini trampoline serves it purpose for me.

More than to just jump on
For me this is a great little product to incorporate into my workouts..
not only do I use it to jump on I use it as an aid to do regular excercises
standing on it I do squats, use it as a platform for my back and do ab crunches
use it to do push-ups, as aerobic step, put a chair in front to hold on to and do side leg lifts,
twist to work obliques, sit on it and bounce --
whatever excercise I can think of I try doing on this mini-trampoline
it is sturdy enough to do a variety of exercises on, also since it has a give to it
the surface of the trampoline is not as rigid as if I was working out on the floor
(on a mat)
also it was not all that difficult to put together...took me about a half hour

Mini trampoline is great
My wife and I bought this product for health benifits. A mini trampoline opens the lymphatic system one way valves when you jump. It also helps in other benifts, so we enjoy using it everday. I don't feel it is designed to jump a foot or two in the air or use it as a jump ramp for goofing off. I was 200 lbs when I bought it and incorporate it in my weight loss. Just gently jump about an inch off the base. That is enough to get your health benifit and if you are older you could tear something inside from the motion. It is not the quality of the $300 ones so if that is what you want, don't complain about this one, go buy one and you will be happy.

Brought the trampoline and one spring broke so I replaced it with a bed spring and then another spring broke, which prompted me to write this review, and as I can see I am not the only one having this problem.

I just don't know...
I purchased my first trampoline in February 2010. By April, two springs had broken in the same night, so I needed to get it replaced. Fortunately there is a 1-year warranty on the item so it wasn't a problem. Here it is mid June and another spring has just broken. I'll be requesting another replacement on the weekend. Although I'm sure it will be a hassle-free exchange, it's rather frustrating that the springs keep breaking. If it weren't for the springs breaking, I would absolutely LOVE this product. And, just as a note... I only weigh 123 lbs.!

Very pleasantly surprised
Just bought my mini-trampoline yesterday and was a bit concerned, after reading some of the previous reviews, about it being difficult to assemble.
Well what a surprise! It was SO easy - the main frame practically assembled itself - I just opened it up and it clicked into place, then put two bolts in and tightened, put the cover on and screwed on the legs. The unit seems very sturdy and well made, it doesn't wobble or make strange noises and I feel very secure jumping up and down on it.
Bounced lightly for about 10 minutes and heart rate really shot up. This is a piece of exercise equipment I will actually use - it's easy, fun, and you can use it outside or inside. It's only about 9" high with the legs on, so will fit under my bed or in a closet without disassembling.
So five stars, two thumbs up!

Love this mini-trampoline
I bought this to help me to get into shape this winter and it's a gem. Very easy to set up, takes up very little space under the bed too. I jog and jump around for about an hour 5 days each week and it's quite a good workout. Much easier on the knees than jogging on a treadmill or pavement.

This is a pretty good trampoline. This is more geared towards lighter athletes. There is about a 200lb weight limit on this and the diameter is a bit small so those with a wider stance might find it tricky to use. For lighter males, females and kids, this is the way to go.
