I am not a „Jog-a-holic“ and will probably never be one, but yesterday I discovered „Easier Jogging.“ 😉 It has to be said that this new type of movement is far healthier than traditional jogging and even activates a larger range of muscle groups. As part of a sponsored 1-hour Kangoo Jumps training session, I was able to take a closer look at these jumping shoes.

Jogging down-hill with these shoes is really the most fun. I don’t think I have ever run/bounced down a hill faster without being out of breath at the bottom. With the new shoes under my feet, I was able to bounce down the hill with huge strides without exerting much energy at all. These shoes are also great for jogging on flat surfaces. Going up-hill, however, was a little more tricky: pitiful jumps at a sluggish tempo. With my level of fitness, down-hill was better. 😉

What is the secret behind „Kangoo Jumps“?

A „Kangoo Jumps“ shoe is a spring-like device which allows you to jump up to 70 cm high from a standing position and jump over 2.5 meters forward.
The most attractive feature of this shoe is that it allows you to exercise without damaging your joints. The integrated shock-absorbing system cushions your landing and protects your joints.
