Over the years I have experienced the fun and health benefits of rebounding, jumping and bouncing on a mini-trampoline. The bouncing can be done barefoot or in shoes, you can also hold light weights in your hands to add a little more challenge if desired. The movement is great for cardio, circulation, balance and more. The movements can be very gentle, you don’t even have to lift your feet to get benefits, and you can move with more intensity once you are comfortable with the motion. Jumping-jacks, high knees, kicking one leg at a time out in front or behind are some of the options. The lymphatic system is supported by motion, helpful for cleansing and great for health. The information below gives more detail regarding the benefits of jumping on a trampoline.

What is Rebounding?
Rebounding is a unique exercise in that you achieve a weightless state at the top of each jump then land with twice the force of gravity on each bounce. This twice-gravity bounce affects every muscle and cell of the body. Researchers at the University of Kentucky, in conjunction with NASA, concluded that “the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running.” No other brand can compare to JumpSport’s patent pending Stage Bounce™ technology. It provides the safest, most forgiving impact available on a Jogging/Rebounding trampoline.
Rebounding offers an exercise that can be adjusted to your fitness level, is easy on your joints and back, and can be done in your home at your convenience while providing a safe, gentle low-impact workout. Studies show that jogging or rebounding on a trampoline will burn more calories than traditional jogging. Exercising on a trampoline can also strengthen your heart, improve your circulation, stimulate the flow in your lymphatic system, revitalize vision, help slow the effects of aging, reduce stress, and benefit children with learning disabilities and cystic fibrosis.

|31 Ways Trampoline Jogging/Rebounding can improve your Well Being
- Rebounding strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body so that they work more efficiently.
- Rebounding provides an increased G-force (gravitational load), which strengthens the musculoskeletal systems.
- Rebounding protects the joints from the chronic fatigue and impact delivered by exercising on hard surfaces.
- Rebounding helps manage body composition and improves muscle-to-fat ratio.
- Rebounding aids lymphatic circulation by stimulating the millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system.
- Rebounding establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the tissues and the oxygen made available.
- Rebounding increases capacity for breathing.
- Rebounding circulates more oxygen to the tissues.
- Rebounding results in better mental performance, with keener learning processes.
- Rebounding tends to reduce the level to which the arterial pressures rise during exertion.
- Rebounding can lessen the time during which blood pressure remains abnormal after severe activity.
- Rebounding increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells.
- Rebounding decreases the volume of blood pooling in the veins of the cardiovascular system preventing chronic edema.
- Rebounding improves resting metabolic rate; therefore more calories are burned for hours after exercise.
- Rebounding causes muscles to perform work in circulating fluids through the body to lighten the heart’s load.
- Rebounding encourages collateral circulation by increasing the capillary count in the muscles and decreasing the distance between the capillaries and the target cells.
- Rebounding lowers circulating cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
- Rebounding lowers low-density lipoprotein (bad) in the blood and increases high-density lipoprotein (good) holding off the incidence of coronary artery disease.
- Rebounding promotes tissue repair.
- Rebounding for longer than 20 minutes at a moderate intensity increases the mitochondria count within the muscle cells, essential for endurance.
- Rebounding adds to the alkaline reserve of the body, which may be of significance in an emergency requiring prolonged effort.
- Rebounding improves coordination between the proprioceptors in the joints, the transmission of nerve impulses to and from the brain, transmission of nerve impulses and responsiveness of the muscle fibers.
- Rebounding improves the brain’s responsiveness to the vestibular apparatus within the inner ear, thus improving balance.
- Rebounding offers relief from neck and back pains, headaches, and other pain caused by lack of exercise.
- Rebounding enhances digestion and elimination processes.
- Rebounding allows for deeper and easier relaxation and sleep.
- Rebounding can curtail fatigue and menstrual discomfort for women.
- Rebounding minimizes the number of colds, allergies, digestive disturbances, and abdominal problems.
- Rebounding tends to slow down atrophy in the aging process.
- Rebounding is an effective form of exercise by which the user gains a sense of control and an improved self image.
- Rebounding is Fun!
