Behind the Scenes: Kangoo Jumps!

By Shelby Holliday 11.11.2011 blog

A few weeks ago, I saw some people bounding down the streets of New York City in Kangoo Jumps and instantly fell in love. They might look like moon boots on steroids, but these people were having waaay too much fun to care.

I pitched the jumps as a “Next Big Thing” idea, and the next thing I knew, I was hopping around in a pair with fitness expert Mario Godiva Green. We had a BLAST doing this segment and, it turns out, these bouncy boots do much more than make exercise fun.

According to Mario, who is pretty much the king of all things Kangoo, these jumps:

  • Reduce the impact on your back, knees, and joints by up to 80%
  • Give you an incredible core workout
  • Allow you to burn up to 50% more calories than other forms of exercise
  • They have sparked a fitness craze around the world, and they are used by trainers, physical therapists and even high school coaches

So, are Kangoo Jumps the NEXT BIG THING? Bounce on over to our NBT page and cast your vote. Check out our video below to learn more, and visit Mario’s website for tips and info on these awesome workout boots.
