Rebounding is the ultimate cardio!

 In Barre

PUT YOUR HEART INTO IT

Jumping gets the blood pumping

Quick, fun, convenient cardio that’s truly effective – it’s what everyone’s after. Rebounding on a mini trampoline does all that and more. It gets your heart and circulatory system firing on all cylinders in no time – plus, you’ll love every minute. Because you are acting like a kid!

The specially designed, highly elastic bungees on our JumpSport Rebounders provide just the right amount of tension to make your heart and muscles work without straining your joints. And because the range and variation of low-impact rebounding workouts is so great, you’ll never get bored.

 

NASA STUDY: BOUNCING IS THE BEST EXERCISE

Biomedical Research Division, NASA, November 1, 1980

This NASA study, which confirms the extraordinary fitness benefits of bouncing, helped to bring rebounding to the awareness of the American public.

Because it’s an academic paper, written with the assumption that it would only be read by other scientists and researchers, it’s not the easiest read, but it contains a wealth of information about the benefits of bouncing. It goes into detail about oxygen consumption and muscular involvement and concludes that bouncing provides better all-around benefits than running, isotonic (weightlifting) and isometric exercise.
