Think you outgrew trampolines when you hit your teens? Think again! Rebounders, or Indoor Trampoline, have been slowly increasing in popularity among exercise enthusiasts.
What fun! Not only did jumping on a bouncy surface makes you feel energized and uplifted, it elevated your heart rate, fatigued the large muscles in your lower body.
Studies of both sedentary, middle-aged women and highly trained athletes alike demonstrate a modest but significant improvement in cardiovascular fitness with regular, 45-minute trampoline workouts. These gains, however, were not significantly different from those provided by treadmill workouts or more traditional forms of cardiovascular exercise.
