|Home E Exercise Trampoline|
We usually think of trampolines as a fun outdoor amusement item for children. In fact, trampolines provide fantastic exercise through their ability to sustain target heart rates while remaining gentle to joints.
Rebounders — also known as “mini trampolines”— have been popular for many years, both for high-aerobic fitness and for bouncing fun. 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.
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. Studies have shown that rebounding on a trampoline burns more calories than traditional jogging. Rebounding protects the joints from the chronic fatigue and impact delivered by exercising on hard surfaces.
Exercising on a trampoline also strengthens your heart and improves your circulation. Many other benefits have been claimed, such as stimulating the flow in your lymphatic system, revitalizing vision, helping to slow the effects of aging, reducing stress, and benefiting children with learning disabilities and cystic fibrosis.
Mini trampolines are particularly good for children as exercising on it, which is also fun, results in better mental performance, with keener learning processes.
Exercising on mini trampolines is also good for people leading a sedentary life, as it offers relief from neck and back pains, headaches, and other pain caused by lack of exercise.
