Why You Should Be Rebounding
Did you know that you can boost weight loss, muscle tone and improve your overall health by REBOUNDING just 10 minutes a day! But trust me you will want to do more than 10 minutes. I have been rebounding for years! I absolutely love it; it was part of my healing therapy when I was at the Living Foods Institute. Rebounding is not just for kids; it is in my opinion one of the BEST exercises you can do for you body.
It’s the most fun you’ll ever have getting in shape, losing weight, improving your health, increasing your stamina, and boosting your immune system. It exercises every one of the 638 muscles in your body while being low-impact, low-stress, and revitalizing to your entire system.
And it’s actually fun, so instead of avoiding your workouts, you’ll be looking forward to them.
Why Rebounding Is The Best Exercise For Your Body
When you exercise with weights you are working against gravity pushing the weights. Jumping on the REBOUNDER you are reaching weightlessness like an astronaut and there is no stress or pressure on the body.
When you are at the bottom of the bounce with your feet on the rebounder you are experiencing and increase in G-force that works every cell, muscle and tissue simultaneously for full body workouts. The increased G-force that your body takes on when you jump on a rebounder helps build bone mass at an increased rate as well. Plus it is easy on your joints.

Rebounding And Your Bodies Natural Detoxification System
Your bodies natural detox system is called your lymphatic system. The lymph system is a network of organs, lymph nodes, lymph ducts, and lymph vessels that make and move lymph fluid from tissues to the bloodstream.
The lymph system is a major part of the body’s immune system. It works 24/7 to keep your body healthy but it also needs some help from you. The lymph system is like the baby sister of the circulatory system. But it’s role is just as important because when it is not functioning properly sickness and disease can set in.
The Lymph System includes:
It’s job is to remove waste and toxins from your body. You have twice as much lymph fluid as you do blood. I like to explain your lymph system as a fine looking fishnet that covers your entire body from head to toe.
The lymph system does not have a pump like your heart. Movement and exercise stimulate the lymph system to circulate around your body. This is why rebounding is so great for your body, as you are exercising you are also stimulating your lymph system to detox. Talk about multi-tasking!

31 Ways Rebounding Can improve Your Well Being
- Rebounding strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body so that they work more efficiently.
- Provides an increased G-force (gravitational load), which strengthens the musculoskeletal systems.
- Protects the joints from the chronic fatigue and impact delivered by exercising on hard surfaces.
- Helps manage body composition and improves muscle-to-fat ratio.
- Aids lymphatic circulation by stimulating the millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system.
- Establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the tissues and the oxygen made available.
- Increases capacity for breathing.
- Circulates more oxygen to the tissues.
- Results in better mental performance, with keener learning processes.
- Tends to reduce the level to which the arterial pressures rise during exertion.
- Can lessen the time during which blood pressure remains abnormal after severe activity.
- Increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells.
- Decreases the volume of blood pooling in the veins of the cardiovascular system preventing chronic edema.
- Improves resting metabolic rate; therefore more calories are burned for hours after exercise.
- Causes muscles to perform work in circulating fluids through the body to lighten the heart’s load.
- 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.
- Lowers low-density lipoprotein (bad) in the blood and increases high-density lipoprotein (good) holding off the incidence of coronary artery disease.
- Promotes tissue repair.
- Rebounding for longer than 20 minutes at a moderate intensity increases the mitochondria count within the muscle cells, essential for endurance.
- Adds to the alkaline reserve of the body, which may be of significance in an emergency requiring prolonged effort.
- 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.
- Improves the brain’s responsiveness to the vestibular apparatus within the inner ear, thus improving balance.
- Offers relief from neck and back pains, headaches, and other pain caused by lack of exercise.
- Enhances digestion and elimination processes.
- Allows for deeper and easier relaxation and sleep.
- Can curtail fatigue and menstrual discomfort for women.
- Minimizes the number of colds, allergies, digestive disturbances, and abdominal problems.
- Rebounding tends to slow down atrophy in the aging process.
- Is an effective form of exercise by which the user gains a sense of control and an improved self image.
- Rebounding is fun!
