Gold’s Gym Rebounder Reviews

The Gold’s Gym rebounder is called the Circuit Trainer. They call it this because it comes with these elastic bands attached to the frame which you can use to also workout your upper body, which is a nice touch. That’s about where the niceness ends.

Your first warning sign with the Gold’s Gym Circuit Trainer is that it only costs $30 – $40, depending where you look. It is sold by Walmart, Sears and Amazon, so that should tell you something.

It should also be pointed out that this rebounder comes with a little electronic monitor to measure time, calories burned and number of jumps. This is a pretty nifty feature you won’t find on any other models.

However, this mini trampoline just doesn’t cut it. The bounce is uneven and quite stiff. It’s a little jarring and mostly unpleasant.

If you want to get a full body workout while rebounding, the Freedom Spring System is much more safe, stable and enjoyable. The Circuit Trainer is just a run of the mill cheap rebounder.

Our Recommendation: This is a piece of junk rebounder. Don’t buy it. If you do, use it very gently so you don’t hurt yourself.

  1. I tried this really old Gold’s Gym one from Walmart that they used to sell years ago, before this Circuit Trainer one. I thought it was ok until I tried bouncing on a higher quality rebounder. Then I realized how bad it was. It hardly has any bounce, it’s more like jumping on foam or something. It is soft and won’t hurt when you land, but you hardly bounce at all. It’s pretty bad and I’m guessing this newer version is not any better.

  2. When you jump on the Gold’s Gym Rebounder it isn’t very smooth. It requires more effort to bounce which is ok because it gives a good workout but I don’t think it is very good on the knees. When you compare this to a ReboundAIR it is almost night and day. I would suggest staying away from the Gold’s Gym Rebounder and stick to something something that is better quality.

  3. If you’re looking for a great bargain, high quality, fun and exciting rebounder, the Gold’s Gym Rebounder is NOT for you. I bought this for my wife because Gold’s Gym swore by it plus, it is extremely affordable especially in comparison to others on the market. You definitely get what you pay for. In order to get any “rebound” or air time on this piece of equipment you really have to work for it. (Which, i suppose, could be a good thing for those wanting to get the most out of their dollar and exercise machine).

  4. This trampoline wasn’t very fun to jump on. It was a little too firm for me. I don’t want to put a lot of pressure on my joints and would prefer something that has a softer and deeper bounce to it. I worry about the quality since it does not have regular springs like the higher-quality models. It is cheap and I guess you get what you pay for. I don’t want it taking up space in my house if it is not high quality.
