We hear so much about the health benefits of rebounding, but lets take a look at the purely practical aspects. Of course, we have to include the health benefits, because that’s practical as well. But let’s not neglect the solid, sensible reasons to use a rebounder. Here’s a short list:
1. Rebounders provide high intensity workouts
You can do an almost unlimited array of exercises on mini-trampolines from high-intensity interval training (HIIT) to the gentlest of movements. Almost any floor exercise can be adapted and there are many exercises and workouts specific to rebounders. You can increase your stamina, endurance, and work out your cardiovascular system on one piece of equipment.
2. Rebounders save time
You don’t need to get dressed for the gym. You don’t need to fix your hair and makeup. You don’t need to take the time to drive and find a parking space. All you need to do is step up to your rebounder and start bouncing.
3. Rebounders save money
There are no rental fees or recurring gym memberships to pay with a rebounder. Compared to exercise bikes or premium treadmills, they are relatively inexpensive. Great workout routines can be found on Youtube at no cost. Considering that a mini-trampoline provides superior workouts and exercise in a variety of ways, is suitable for all age groups while being very gentle on the joints, rebounders add up to a cost-efficient investment that pays you back in health benefits and enjoyment in spades.
4. Rebounders are small and space efficient
Rebounders and mini-trampolines are easy to store at home. They usually have foldable legs. Even without foldable legs, they take little space. Some models fold in half or in quarters for portability. They can be stored under a bed, against a wall, in the garage, in a closet – basically in any room that’s convenient.
5. Rebounders are safer than going to the gym
In today’s pandemic world, gyms and fitness centers are risky areas for the transmission of germs and all types of microorganisms, especially COVID-19. During workouts, gym members can’t help but touch a lot of equipment and other surfaces. Its impossible to keep everything sterile every moment. In addition, ventilation may be poor, locking in the germs exhaled with all that heavy breathing. Experts are saying that if you’re not vaccinated, working out at home is still the safer alternative and will be for a long time to come.
6. Rebounders can be used at any time of day
…or night. So if you can’t sleep, you can simply walk over to your rebounder and bounce your stress away in your pajamas!
7. Rebounders can be used year-round
Unlike outdoor swimming or biking, the weather won’t stop your workout schedule. However, should you want to exercise in the fresh air, your rebounder can be taken outside and brought back in after your workout.
8. Rebounders are low-impact
Not only does rebounding provide high-intensity workouts, but a cardio option that is extremely low-impact and gentle on the joints. Don’t think this is just for the young. Rebounding on a trampoline can provide comfortable exercise for seniors and the elderly, as well. It allows you to expend a similar amount of energy to walking or running while significantly reducing the amount of stress on the joints and muscles. This is much better on the knees and hip joints than running.
9. Rebounders provide great health benefits
From helping flush the lymphatic fluids, to stimulating the cardiovascular system, to developing upper and lower body strength, stimulating cell growth in muscles and bones and increasing bone density, to burning calories, rebounding can’t be beat.
10. Rebounders are super versatile
With a mini-trampoline, many types of exercises can be done on one piece of equipment. Here are a few: high-intensity interval training (HIIT), dance, strength training, Pilates, and yoga-based exercises. People that are weak or have balance issues can stick with the safest small movements and/or use a balance bar or even just sit on the rebounder and go up and down connected to the mat and still work their muscles, get the cardio and lymphatic pumping effects and all the other benefits.
Rebounders can be used safely by all ages from children to the elderly. They can be used strenuously or gently, indoors or out. They are compact and affordable and easy on the joints. There are few exercise methods that are so adaptable and customizable.
