SpectraLock supposedly tolerates some flex, but it might cost as much as doing the whole thing right.

I'd tell her it needs to be torn out and redone correctly
to last any amount of time. The movement that is cracking the grout
will eventually compromise the bond of the tile. A quick fix would
be to caulk all the joints. Im not to sure epoxy would even hold well
on a bouncy floor. If i were asked to do this i would
walk away from it. Best of luck.
