They tout them as burning 25-percent more calories than doing a normal workout. Kangoo Jumps are all the rage in Europe and quickly becoming a hot exercise tool in the United States as well. Kim Kardashian recently hit the streets in the cross-training shoes that are part snow boot/part trampoline.
“It’s a full-body exercise,” says Jayne Justice, a Los Angeles Kangoo jumps instructor and distributor. “You can do this at home and cut your workout time in half.” They are actually easy to walk in and designed to be gentle on the joints. It’s perfect for a full body low-impact rebounding workout, which can include cross-country jogging, jumping jacks, power walking, running in place, and jumping around. The price is $249.
