Best Overall Excercise Trampoline

Wamkos 40" Rebounder

Max Jumper Weight: 220 lbs | Bounce Type: Springs
Cushioned and stylish safety pad covers springs
Includes resistance bands for upper body workout
Light, packable, and easy to assemble
Slightly squeaky springs
Firm bounce

The Wamkos 40" Rebounder has a cushioned safety rim with a fun camouflage print and includes resistance bands to kick your workout up a notch. This trampoline feels great to bounce on and is easy to transport, too. Even if you are on the tall side, the 40-inch diameter should work out well, and the cushioned rim provides some peace of mind if you decide to jump shoeless. Despite the small squeak we experienced when using this model, it remained our favorite spring-style trampoline.

A great feature of the Wamkos 40" Rebounder is the locking latches that ensure it doesn't accidentally fold up when moving it around. All in all, we think adults and children alike will enjoy this product that facilitates a good workout and remains durable over many uses. It doesn't come with a travel bag, but it easily folds and packs for park or picnic trips.

Best Bounce for the Buck

SereneLife 40" Portable Foldable

Max Jumper Weight: 200 lbs | Bounce Type: Elastic Straps
Very light and quick to assemble
Carrying bag included for easy transport
Fitness Class Approved: silent bounce and wide diameter
Small bounce for medium and large users
Flimsy protective rim

The SereneLife 40" Portable Foldable Trampoline stands out as a cheerful, fun piece of exercise equipment at a great price. Beyond that, we think this is a great product for fitness classes—so long as you're a smaller jumper. The maximum quoted weight is 200 lbs, however, the bounce already felt strained for our testers weighing around 120 lbs. It was possible to hit the ground while jumping. Still, we love that this trampoline is silent, light, and comes with a portable carrying case.

The SereneLife Portable 40" trampoline is also a versatile product. It performs well for fitness classes, and it appears safe and fun for children. The support handle is slightly wobbly, but it is adjustable to different heights and is very comfortable. If you are a smaller person wanting a storable and transportable product to help you enter into the trampoline world without too much of an investment, this product is a good choice for you.

Best Bounce for Larger Jumpers

Leikefitness Professional Fitness 50-Inch

Max Jumper Weight: 330 lbs | Bounce Type: Bungee Bands
Wide-set legs for maximum stability
Professional-level fitness quality
Not foldable, portable, or easy to disassemble
Takes up a lot of 3D space
Dexterity required to assemble elastic bands

The Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch Trampoline is a similar model to what we see in a lot of studio fitness classes. Its hexagonal design and wide-set legs make it both appear and feel stable while bouncing. Its bungee system is on the firmer end, making the user exert more energy to bounce. Its large diameter and stable base made it a favorite for our larger bouncers.

A downside is that this product is not super portable. Assembly requires stringing on 30+ different bungee elastics and popping together six base pieces. This model doesn't fold up, nor are the legs removable. To be useful, owners must have enough free space for the Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch trampoline to remain assembled in its entirety. That being said, we found the product to be durable, safe, comfortable, and fun to use.

Middle of the Line Bounce

BCAN 40" Foldable Mini

Max Jumper Weight: 330 lbs | Bounce Type: Springs
Light and foldable for easy transport
Hidden springs suitable for kids
Simple assembly
Squeaky springs
Moderate and firm bounce
Small diameter makes it less suited for fitness classes

The BCAN 40" Foldable Mini trampoline rides the line between providing a professional fitness workout and a leisurely bouncing activity for adults or children. If you're a young, amateur, or hesitant user, the supportive foam handle allows for extra balance and safety.

The main negative of the BCAN 40" Foldable Mini is squeaking springs. The protective pad is durable, and the bounce is more comfortable than on the 38-inch BCAN trampoline. This product might spark the interest of an amateur or aspiring trampoliner. Although it is not as large or comfortable as professional competitors, this product is easily stored and great in areas with limited space.

Best Full Body Workout Kit

MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder

Max Jumper Weight: 310 lbs | Bounce Type: Springs
Resistance bands and weights included
Includes DVD of beginner classes and more online
Easy to assemble and store
Foldable, and comes with a stylish carrying bag for transport
Safety concerns due to unstable base and support bar and exposed springs
Heavy when all pieces are packed up (30+lbs)

The MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder came with high expectations. Included with the basic trampoline are a support bar, two different sets of exercise bands with varying resistances, and two one-pound sand weights. It also comes with a DVD with ten intro professional trampoline fitness classes and a free online three-month trial for access to hundreds of more classes. The assembly is uncomplicated, and the design is portable in a custom carrying bag. The price of this product seems to be ideal for someone invested in trampoline fitness.

We are surprised at how unstable the MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder is. Instead of a screw-in base like most designs, the feet of the trampoline pop into place, which makes both the base and the supportive handle wobbly. The springs are still half-exposed despite the rim covering and appear to be the perfect snag for long shoelaces. This product does come with a support handle, but the handle's height isn't adjustable. It also claims to provide professional-level bounce ability, but our team felt it fell significantly below other brands with regard to workout comfort and safety.

Better for Kids and Picnics than Fitness

BCAN 38" Foldable Mini

Max Jumper Weight: 300 lbs | Bounce Type: Springs
Light and foldable for easy transport
Springs are hidden
Simple and quick assembly
Squeaky springs
Very minimal and firm bounce
Flimsy safety pad
Diameter is very small for fitness class use

When you hear "mini-trampoline," the BCAN 38" Foldable Mini is exactly what you might picture. The blue rim is familiar, the springs are slightly squeaky, and the quality is average, but you can bounce on it. Assembly is simple and requires minimal instruction, taking about 8 minutes. With only a small number of pieces and a foldable design, you can easily pack up this trampoline for storage or transport for a variety of uses. This product is great for both indoor and outdoor use and is kid-friendly.

The BCAN 38" Foldable Mini trampoline is not well-suited for fitness classes. The diameter is quite small for this use, and the bounce is firm, causing you to feel more impact and less comfort than on other designs. Additionally, the springs on this product sometimes fell out during assembly and squeak during use. This product is better suited for the casual adult (or better yet, child) bouncer hoping for occasional fun and recreational use rather than for fitness.

Too Much Sag, But Good for Outdoor Use

WV Wonder View 40" Mini

Max Jumper Weight: Unspecified | Bounce Type: Bungee System
Lightweight and foldable for transport
Large surface area rubber foot support makes it great on grass or sand
Flimsy and wobbly support bar
Heavier users hit the ground when they bounce
Low quality

A major plus of the WV Wonder View 40" Mini Trampoline is the large rubber feet attached to the legs. The increased surface area of the feet provides versatility by allowing this model to be used outdoors on grass, dirt, or sand without sinking into the ground. We did notice that these large rubber feet cause the base to bounce slightly when used on solid ground. This product is very lightweight, making it easy to bring anywhere, but it feels slightly unstable and flimsy (especially the adjustable support handle) when used during intense fitness classes.

We had jumpers of various sizes try this product, and the heavier testers hit the ground during large bounces. On the other hand, the lighter jumpers found this trampoline springy and very suitable for their needs. There is no maximum weight advertised for this product, but we'd only recommend the WV Wonder View 40" Mini to petite jumpers.

Why You Should Trust Us

There are many qualities to consider when choosing a personal exercise trampoline. Our list includes bounce quality, product safety, assembly and disassembly, and storage. We weighed each product, recorded assembly time, tested stability, and compared bounce quality. We then rated each trampoline's bounce in terms of comfort and amplitude. Lastly, we categorized each trampoline for users by type of bounce: springs, elastic straps, and bungees.

Claire Skatch was our enthusiastic and fearless team lead for this exercise-heavy review. As a retired gymnast and current fitness enthusiast, she has taken hundreds of workout classes at studios around the country. In doing so, she has used fitness machinery of all kinds and done trampoline workouts of all levels and intensities. With a background in trampolines during her gymnastics career combined with her current fitness exploits, this is an area in which Claire shines. Claire helped us choose seven popular and unique products and sweated it out while evaluating each one.

Analysis and Test Results

To create this comprehensive product evaluation, we put each exercise trampoline through rigorous tests. We took time assembling, learning about, and working out on each. We also let a team of bouncers try the products and offer feedback. In the end, we evaluated the following metrics to help buyers make their choice: assembly, stability/safety, performance, and portability/storage.


Assembly was an unexpected challenge for some of these trampolines. Although most were simple and straightforward (a small investment of 10-15 minutes from opening the box to jumping), others were more complex. All but one of our exercise trampolines came folded in quarters, requiring the user to simply unfold and pop open the body and screw on 6-8 leg posts. Instructional booklets and some included tools made this easy work. When support handles were included, or if the user had to assemble the bounce mechanism, the assembly became more complicated.

The MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder, SereneLife Portable & Foldable 40", BCAN 38" Foldable Mini, and the Wamkos 40" Rebounder had the easiest and fastest assembly, taking under 10 minutes. The Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch was the most difficult and slowest to assemble, taking 40 minutes and a lot of brain and muscle power. The hexagonal base comes in six metal pieces that pop together, and then the netting must be strung on with 36 individual elastic bands. The bands are tight, and the technique is sensitive and finicky. It took multiple sets of hands at one point to secure the first bands in place. To its credit, the Leikefitness has a colorful and thorough instruction booklet that's easy to follow.

Stability and Safety

From the evaluation of how stable users felt on each trampoline to the safety features included in the designs, we investigated each product to give a full report. Springs create an element of risk (think pinching and catching). All of our spring designs had a safety covering pad. The safety pad on the Wamkos 40" Rebounder was the most comfortable and well-fitting, while the pad on the MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder left a portion of the springs and hooks exposed in a seemingly risky manner. Also, several of the spring trampolines had springs fall off or become askew during assembly or disassembly. The bungee trampolines excelled in the safety category. We also liked that out of the models with collapsible designs, the WV Wonder View 40" Mini, the SereneLife Portable & Foldable 40", and the Wamkos 40" Rebounder had safety pins to ensure the trampoline wouldn't fold prematurely.

For stability, we evaluated the feet, the base, and the handle separately. The feet determine the surface the trampoline can be used on. The most versatile product was the WV Wonder View 40" Mini because the rubber feet have a wide base that keeps the legs from sinking in when used outside on grass or sand. The feet on every other design sunk in when used on these surfaces, and some of the feet became stuck in the dirt. As for the trampoline bases, all designs were satisfactorily stable while bouncing except for the WV Wonder View 40" Mini, which bounces a little due to the wide rubber feet on solid ground, and the MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder, which rocks side to side with every bounce. When we tested support handles, every product had handle mobility of approximately one centimeter. The most stable handles were the SereneLife Portable & Foldable 40" (1 inch) and the Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch (1 inch). The least stable handle was on the WV Wonder View 40" Mini, wobbling 2 inches and providing minimal aid to balance.


When evaluating performance, we looked at three main categories: bounce, versatility, and noise. Bounce was quantified using comfort and magnitude scales. Comfort had to do with the impact felt during jumping, while magnitude was how high of bounce jumpers achieved. The lowest impact and highest bounce came from the Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch. The highest impact and lowest bounce came from the BCAN 38" Foldable Mini, which was firm and barely depressible. When used by larger folks, the lowest bounce and most depressible products were the WV Wonder View 40" Mini and the SereneLife Portable & Foldable 40", where users were able to hit the ground while bouncing.

For the more intense trampoline enthusiast, classes involve much more than just bounce. Classes can include squats, crunches, pushups, stretches, and work on the whole body. We found that larger diameter products such as the Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch and the SereneLife Portable & Foldable 40" allowed for better and more comprehensive workouts. When strong and stable, the addition of a support bar (see the comparisons in the previous section) can help maximize bounce and intensify a workout. We were also impressed by the added workout possibility on the Wamkos 40" Rebounder and the MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder due to the inclusion of attached resistance bands (with both) and weight bags (with the latter).

Lastly, how could we evaluate performance without addressing the elephant in the room: trampolines are infamous for making noise. Although some may care less about noise, you may be one of us who finds frequent squeaking distracting during a workout. Our take-home is: the elastic trampolines are fairly silent, and spring trampolines are not. The following is our complete ranking from quietest to loudest bounce: SereneLife Portable & Foldable 40" (silent), Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch (almost complete silence), WV Wonder View 40" Mini (moderate noise from an unstable base), Wamkos 40" Rebounder (slight squeaking, but the quietest of the spring options), BCAN 38" Foldable Mini (a moderately quiet spring option which could be explained because it also has minimal bounce), MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder (surprisingly a lot of noise from both an unstable base and squeaky springs), and BCAN 40" Foldable Mini (max level of spring squeak).

Portability and Storage

Depending on your trampolining goals, these two factors may or may not be crucial. If you want to transport your trampoline to various bounce locations, easy carrying is a huge perk. In this metric, the SereneLife Portable & Foldable 40" is by far the best design. Within a few minutes, you can have the entire 18 lb trampoline and support bars packed up in a light, stylish, easy-to-use velcro carrying case. The MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder also comes with a carrying case, but the entire product is quite heavy (over 30 lbs), so it's quite difficult and uncomfortable carrying long distances.

All other trampolines except for the Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch can be folded and transported but would need to be returned to their original shipping box or carried in a large/sturdy reusable bag/bin. Product weight additionally makes transport more difficult so we've ranked the products from lightest to heaviest: the BCAN 38" Foldable Mini (16lbs), the SereneLife Portable & Foldable 40" (18lbs), the WV Wonder View 40" Mini (18lbs), the Wamkos 40" Rebounder (22lbs), the BCAN 40" Foldable Mini (24lbs), the Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch (28lbs), and the MaXimus PRO Folding Rebounder (32lbs). Lastly, all products are more portable without the support handle. The bars can be easily removed, and the trampolines can be fully installed without them for transport and use.

Storage is also key if you don't have ample floor space to leave your trampoline out for daily use. The Leikefitness Professional 50-Inch takes up an enormous amount of floor space. Once assembled, it would be very difficult to disassemble (apart from removing the support handle), so consider it a permanent addition to your home. All of the other products are fairly easy to store. They can be disassembled, folded, and stored under a bed or in a closet. If you don't want to fold the trampoline, the legs of these seven designs can be easily removed, leaving the circular or octagonal frame (approximately 1.5-3 inches thick) perfect for propping in a closet, behind a dresser/couch, or against a wall. The addition of a support bar adds a slight barrier to the storage process. However, all bars were quick and easy to remove.

Exercise trampolines can be used in more ways than one can imagine. As a purchaser, you need to first look at your own specific goals before buying. Do you want to get in a little cardio in front of the TV? Do you want a fun addition to your workout room that can double as entertainment for children? Do you want a portable trampoline to bring bounce to outdoor gatherings? Or do you want hard-core fitness training and full-body workouts? Once you have a better idea of how you're going to use your trampoline, it's much easier to pick a product. If we've learned anything in this review, it's that there is the perfect trampoline for every user; it's just up to you to make the decision. Happy bouncing!
