Physical Benefits – “Let’s get physical”
- Improved posture and body alignment.
- 40% less impact on your joints and muscles.
- Core-stability muscles are constantly engaged in order to keep you stable and balanced on the mini rebounder (trampoline).
- Rebound exercise can help increase your body’s metabolic rate and its ability to burn calories more efficiently, helping your body to process nutrients more efficiently.
- Saves you time (10 minutes of rebounding is as effective as 30 minutes of running).
- Gives all the benefits of aerobic exercises without jarring the skeletal system.
- “Most of all, bouncing on a rebounder is just FUN!”
Mental Benefits – “It’s all in your head”
- Stress relief – combat depression, anxiety, and stress by increasing the amount of endorphins released to the brain.
- Rebounder workouts increase the circulation of oxygen throughout the body, with regulating sleep patterns.
- Exercising on a trampoline increases the circulation of oxygen around your body, making you more alert and improving mental performance.
- Strengthens every cell, muscle, organ, tissue, bone and tendon in the body.
- Rebounder workouts will make you feel happier, more positive, and even more self-confident.
- “It’s hard to feel blue when you’re bouncing.”
The Lymphatic System: Step-by-Step
- Definition: basically your body’s natural way of detoxing.
- At the bottom of the bounce, poisons, toxins and waste products are being squeezed out from between the cells.
- As the body bounds into the air, waste is loosened from the cell, and nutrients are passed from lymph (fluid) to the cells.
- At the height of the bounce, the body is weightless. Valves are open … Fluid begins to flow.
- As the body descends, fluid flows, sucking waste products out and away from the cells to be eliminated by the lymph fluid.
