Do not buy Stamina InTone Jogger.

Cons:Frame cuts springs in two.
Legs punch through their caps.
Extremely difficult to replace springs.
The Bottom Line: Quality of this product's design, construction and materials is extremely poor. Spend more, get a product that will last longer.

We've now had our Stamina InTone Jogger for 11 months. My husband stopped using it altogether after the springs began to snap. Since then, the only user has been me, at 140 lbs and 65 years of age, rebounding for 20 minutes every other day.
The 14 replacement springs sent by Stamina have all been used, and a phone call to Stamina's customer service department today yielded the following: They will not provide any more no-charge replacements (the warranty period is only 90 days). As more springs break (which they most assuredly will), Stamina will sell me replacements at $2.00 each, plus shipping. Do the math -- for the price of 25 or 30 new springs, I could buy a new jogger.
We have determined that the reason the springs break is a design/construction defect: The springs hook into a punched hole in the steel frame of the jogger, and the sharp edges of those holes cut through the springs like a knife. Need I say that I will not be ordering more springs from Stamina?
Instead, I am shopping for a new rebounder from a maker other than Stamina, one that will not start to disintegrate within a month after purchase.
Interestingly, the customer service rep with whom we spoke today insisted that broken springs are all but unheard of with this product. Who among you believes I am the only owner whose jogger has this problem?
