If the last time you jumped on a trampoline was at a kid’s birthday party, then it’s time you put a spring into you exercise routine, and experienced the fantastic benefits of regular exercise on a Rebounder mini trampoline.
Rebounding is a safe, effective and fun low impact workout performed on a small trampoline designed to absorb impact and be kind on your joints. It’s a full body workout that burns fat, strengthens and tones the core, legs and upper body, improves lymphatic drainage and boosts the immue system (ladies… it’s also especially good for your pelvic floor! Guys – It will melt fat and get you in the best shape of your life!)
This fun form of exercise has become a firm celebrity favourite with Britney Spears, Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Madonna incorporating it into their fitness regimes.
According to Co-founder of ReboundUK and Fitness Trainer James Winfield, Rebounding emerged nearly 50 years ago, but the secret to truly effective bounce routine is for it to be performed correctly, on high quality purpose made small circular trampolines. The idea is to concentrate on the downward push motion through the balls of the feet into the mat surface, with your knees slightly bent and slight lean forward through the hips. With a well sprung rebounder the spring or bungee system will then propel you upwards leaving the mat no more than 6 inches in height. This creates a unique pressure exchange or gravitational pull which is at the heart of what makes Rebounding have such a positive effect on our body.
At the bottom of the bounce on landing (“the push”) your exercise body weight can be up to 3.24 times heavier than normal whilst when you leave the mat during the upward jump phase (“the jump”) you are completely weightless. When we are weightless (floating) this gives us an incredible feeling of well-being, releasing healthy endorphins that make us feel great and lift our mood. This probably explains why children love to jump as it makes them feel joyful and independent. It his this constant change in gravitational pressure that works every single cell in the body making Rebounding one of the most effective and enjoyable all-over body workouts ever designed.
