The Benefits of Rebounding


If you’ve ever seen a child on a trampoline, you know how many hours of fun they can have on them. As a matter of fact, it’s often quite a feat tearing him or her away from it. There’s just something about bouncing around that is almost addictive. Little do kids realize what great exercise they’re getting.

Trampolines are available in many different sizes. There are large ones that will hold several people, smaller ones for two or three, and the tiny ones that one person can jump in place on. But there is also a type of trampoline called a rebounder, which can provide great exercise opportunities.

A rebounder is similar in size to a one-person mini-trampoline, but is designed specifically for maximum benefit when exercising. It is ultra-strong, and used properly is easy on joints while providing an excellent physical workout. Rebounding burns fat, builds core strength, and can greatly improve your balance and coordination. Few other exercises offer all of these benefits in such an appealing way.

Rebounders are great for kids because they are fun. Even children who are not inclined to participate in sports or other physical activities often enjoy jumping. So even the most stubborn video game lover will quite possibly use a rebounder without any persuasion.

Another great thing about rebounders is their compact size. They do not take up nearly as much space as most exercise equipment, and some even fold up for easy storage. Unlike most trampolines, they can be used indoors. That means that worries about the weather do not have to have a negative impact on exercise time.

Perhaps one of the most important advantages of rebounding is its safety. The rebounder’s springs absorb almost all shock so that your body isn’t subjected to it. And beginners can use training bars until they get the hang of it.

Rebounders are wonderful for use in homes, schools, physical therapy, and most other applications. Their small size, ease of use, and fun factor make them ideal for children. Just twenty minutes of use three times a week is all that is required for measurable results.
