Rebounding
Try a Sport: Rebounding

One of the benefits of rebounding on a mini trampoline is that you can burn calories and lose weight with a low impact aerobic workout.

Rebounding 

by WLR Staff, Adam Vaughan

Trying to find a piece of exercise equipment which is suitable for you and your lifestyle, and one which will build your level of fitness? Look no further - Rebounding - it's fun, easy, safe and suitable for almost anybody of any age. 

Benefits

A zero-impact aerobic exercise, rebounding provides many benefits for you and your body. By improving your circulation, rebounding aids your lymphatic system which carries away accumulated toxins and waste products from your body. It increases the capacity of both the heart and lungs, builds up strength, stamina, endurance, agility and overall fitness. Reducing body fat, rebounding will firm your legs, thighs, abdomen, arms and hips. Unlike many other aerobic activities, rebounding places no strain on the joints of your body.

Burn Rate

Depending on your weight and exertion level you'll burn between 100-280 extra calories* in a 30 minute session.

*Extra calories are those you burn on top of the calories you use for basic day-to-day living. Inputting your exercise into your exercise diary will calculate the number of calories you will burn, based on your weight.

Getting Started

This is an easy exercise to start; there is no need for special instruction but it is important to use it correctly and start off slowly. Begin practising by slightly moving up and down continuously with your feet remaining in contact with the mat. Build up your times from 2-5 minute sessions to 20-30 minute sessions. Once you have perfected the art you can practise bouncing and twisting your arms at the waist, jogging and jumps.

The exercise can be done at your convenience and at your own pace. Put on some music, watch some TV... relax and enjoy!

Kit Bag

It's the old adage - you get what you pay for... inexpensive models can be stiff- the feel of the bounce can make a difference. There are many "rebounders" available which are manufactured to strict specifications; many models now will take a person's weight up to 22 stone (308lb). Many can be folded making them easy to store and transport anywhere.

As a form of exercise with so many health benefits and convenience of use it may be worth looking at an investment!

Safety

  • As with most activities remember to start gently and build your stamina slowly
  • Wear comfortable but not loose clothing
  • Stabilizing bars can be fitted which may help if you feel unsteady or are elderly, disabled or handicapped
