Shortly after I bought my Cellerciser, I tore a muscle in my hip. I couldn't run, roller blade, ride my bike, I couldn't even swim. Walking hurt. Even my routine on the Cellerciser hurt. This went on for about a month. Then, it occurred to me to just bounce very gently on the Cellerciser, my feet never even leaving the fabric. I did that for 10 minutes, and when my hip did not hurt more the next day, I continued it every day. After a couple weeks, I bounced a little higher. After a few months, I was walking completely pain-free and I let myself jump gradually higher and higher. After several months, I added one minute of running at the end of my 10 minutes. Lateral movement is what hurt my hip the most, so it was with some trepidation that I added one minute of side-to-side jumping.
After nearly a year, I tried some rollerblading, limited amounts, limited speed. Yesterday afternoon, I was on my 'blades for half an hour, including a small hill. 'Blading is nothing but lateral movement, especially up hills, and my hip feels fine.
I don’t know why the Cellerciser promoted healing when nothing else would, but it did.
And, after over a year of nothing but 10 minutes a day of the Cellerciser, I still have my cut, runner's legs and nearly all of my aerobic conditioning. It saved my sanity, too. I do not know how I would have survived over a year of not working out at all.
I thought you might want to know that. And thank you.
