3 Reasons to Love Bounce Boot Camp

1. A fitness system for kids, which helps to reverse the trend towards childhood obesity.

2. A mobile, fun-filled obstacle course that'll keep your kids smiling AND healthy.

3. Repeat participants can rise through the ranks from Private to Junior General.

Our Take

Thomas's goal of having a Bounce Boot Camp in every city in America is undeniably noble. And his enthusiasm is contagious - even through the TV screen. He's having fun, the kids are having fun, and the Sharks are having fun. This looks like an instant winner.

Not so fast. Unfortunately, his sales aren't great. Granted, he's only out there grinding one day a week, but that brings up another classic Shark Tank dilemma - when do you quit your 'money' job to work full time on the start-up? As Mark points out, Thomas isn't going to be able to quit his money job with the $30,000 he's asking for, so he's out.

Lori tells him that the time to start thinking about franchising it is when the start-up is working all year round, every day for Thomas. It's not franchise-ready, and so it's not investment-ready. The other three Sharks agree with her and they all go out, even after Thomas reminds them that he's not asking for a lot of their money or time. His plea doesn't work, though, and he has to leave without an investment, but with the best wishes of the Sharks.
