Rebounding: The At-Home Exercise You Need to Be Doing for Your Health
What exactly is rebounding? It’s a low-impact cardiovascular exercise performed by jumping on a mini-trampoline.
It’s great for all ages, can be done fast or slow, and it’s gentle on the joints!
The potential benefits of rebounding are impressive:
Works your leg, back, and core muscles
May improve bone density
Increases oxygen flow and boosts circulation
May improve motor skills and balance
Works your cardiovascular system
May improve coordination
Can be mixed with other exercises
Promotes tissue repair
May stimulate the lymphatic system
Increases muscle responsiveness
May increase endurance

Encourages collateral circulation
May stimulate metabolism
May promote cell growth and repair
Can increase breathing capacity
May stimulate cells in internal organs
May flush toxins, dead cells, bacteria, and other waste
Always check with your doctor being beginning a new exercise, especially if you’ve had surgeries or have other health concerns. Also be sure that the mini trampoline you use is on a stable surface, away from other objects, and in solid working order. We recommend choosing a trampoline with a handlebar for added stability.
Here are some tips to rebounding like a pro, in order from beginner to more advanced
Begin with a warmup
Jog in place
Jog around on the trampoline
Place a soft, squishy exercise ball between your knows, and slowly bounce while breathing into your pelvis
Incorporate light hand weights
Incorporate heavier hand weights
Rebounding is a great exercise to incorporate into your workout a few days a week. Start with a few minutes per workout and gradually work your way up. You can also do circuit training where you incorporate other workouts in-between rebounding.
This is an especially great workout to do when you’re stuck at home. Great for your fitness, but even more than that, great for your health!
