5 Shocking Benefits of Rebounding

With all of the different types of exercises that are available, how do you choose the one that’s best for you? You have yoga, personal trainers, pilates, weight lifting, running, dancing, aerobics, water aerobics, and the list goes on and on. I am always wondering whether I should focus on cardio intensive exercises in order to maintain a nice small shape or weight training to keep my bones healthy and strong.

It wasn’t until I heard about the benefits of rebounding that I learned that I didn’t have to pick between a nice shape or healthy bones—- I can really have it all!

Although there are many benefits of rebounding for seniors, adults, and kids, I wanted to share with you the five benefits that I found were most interesting, important, and beneficial living a healthy life.

One of the benefits of rebounding is weight loss. For most people, the reason we exercise is to lose weight or to maintain the weight that we currently have and rebounding helps with just that. Growing up, people used to always tell me I was lucky because I had a fast metabolism which is why I could eat whatever I wanted without gaining a pound. Unfortunately, as we get older, our metabolism starts to slow and the pounds start to speed up. Fortunately for us, rebounding has been shown to help release an enzyme that opens fat cells and converts the fat into energy which, in turn, helps increase metabolism and lose weight. So by using a rebounder, you can get that fast metabolism back.

2. Rids Your Body of Toxins aka Detoxes Your Body

Rebounding is a great exercise for the lymphatic system in your body. The lymphatic system is part of our immune system and its primary function is to clean toxins from our body, however it needs our help to function properly. The lymphatic system needs us to exercise in order to work and the up and down jumping motion that you do while on a rebounder really gets the lymphatic system cleaning and moving those toxins.

3. Great for Bone Density and Muscle Strengthening

The benefits of rebounding were also discussed by NASA. There was a study done where NASA used rebounding to help astronauts regain bone density after being in space and it worked. More details on that study can be found here. Rebounding has also been recommended for people that are overweight, have osteoporosis (a condition where your bones are weakened), or joint pain because rebounding literally uses every muscle in your body when you jump. Therefore, it helps strengthen the muscles and bones but is low impact so it is also good for people with joint pain.

4. Heart Health

The heart is another one of the body’s muscles. With a rebounder, when you work the muscles in your arms and legs with the up and down jumping that you do, you are also making blood and rebounding_balance_largeother fluids in your body move faster which strengthens another muscle in your body which is called the heart.

5. Helps with Balance and Stability

The cause of one of the highest amount of injuries in the older population comes from falls. Have you ever noticed at a restaurant or when hanging out with your grandparents, seniors are slower at getting out of chairs and need to hold on to something just to get up?  Many seniors stumble a few times while walking and some even need canes to help them walk. This is mainly because as we age, it’s harder for us to maintain balance which causes us to fall. However, the jumping motion that you do while using a rebounder helps improve your balance and stability. As you can see, there are numerous health benefits of rebounding exercise. Which one will you be jumping for?
