Другие важные подробности
We are especially fond of our mini trampoline. If you suffer from back aches, knee issues, over weight or just want to do the healthiest and most effective workout, we are more than happy to set up an individual routine for you on our bellicon which you can practice every morning in front of the TV.
We also provide two yoga mats which are a fantastic addition to the bellicon workout.

Please do not smoke.
We're a family of six and we are from Cologne, Germany. My husband Philipp came here to start business with "the Bellicon", the already famous mini rebounder in Europe. (Check it out, it's fantastic:
I work as an artist in Evanston in a shared studio. This is a dream come true. Time for painting, drawing and printmaking. My latest shows and artwork can be seen on my website :
My other passion is my family with four kids, a great husband and now two little cats. We used to have dogs, chickens, even horses in the back yard, but unfortunately they don't fit into our house anymore. so they had to stay.
I love to cook and host guests as well as traveling, celebrating life and God.
What I really would miss? Laughter, paint brushes, wine and cheese, a good book, my church, the super cute refugee kids I am working with once a week at Heartland ministry.
I am the last to leave a good party, the first to join new adventures, I'd prefer an imperfect house with soul to an upscale modern hotel with all amenities, I'd rather read than watch TV, sleep in than be the super mom, have happy kids than overachievers, I love meeting people and refrain from meat that comes from tortured animals.
