Put simply, rebounding is bouncing up and down on a small trampoline. This may seem like a simple exercise, however, we soon discovered that the health and wellness benefits of this seemingly child-like activity, were extensive! It has been described as “The Miracle” or even “Perfect” exercise, with NASA scientists having dubbed it as “the most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man”.
Rebounding is suitable for all ages and abilities, as it is safe and places no impact or strain on the joints of the body. Stabilizing bars can be fitted to the rebounder for those who are not accustomed to exercise, feel unsteady, are elderly, or disabled.
Rebounding impacts the entire body on a cellular level, seeing that the body’s cells are well worked, leaving you with the feeling of having just partaken in a strengthening and aerobics session, in just 30-40 minutes! It has been proven that cells in the body are strengthened when there is a stronger gravitational pull placed on them. Movement, activity or exercise increases the gravitational pull on cells, meaning the motion of bouncing up and down on the rebounder creates an efficient use of gravity and levity. When bouncing up, you halve your weight and create levity, and when you land, your weight doubles creating a gravitational pull on the cell membranes, strengthening your cells, while the mat on the rebounder absorbs the force of your landing ensuring no unnecessary strain on your joints.
Rebounding amplifies our body’s ability to cleanse, detoxify and boosts overall immunity. Unlike the blood circulatory system, which uses the heart as a regulating system to assist the flow of blood to even the tiniest capillary, the lymphatic circulatory system has no such thing to aid the flow of lymph around the body. Massage is one way to increase lymph flow, exercise is another. Rebounding has been proven to increase lymph flow most effectively, likening it to having a team of masseurs available to do lymph drainage massages whenever you please. When lymph fluid is able to flow freely, it allows the body to rid itself of toxic waste with great efficacy.
Rebounding is growing in popularity around the world as it is an excellent form of exercise, which now, many athletes are incorporating into their rigorous training regimes to further improve their performance. NASA astronauts also use rebounding to prepare for space missions, and also use it to recover from spaces zero gravity exposure. Remember, the less gravitational pull, the weaker your cells become.
Entire books have been written on the wonders of rebounding, but we think that the best way for you to understand why this simple activity has been described as the “Miracle” exercise is to give one of our new rebounding classes a try!
We will be starting with three classes a week on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7:45am, with a new comer 14 day special on offer! Please contact us for prices and package options, including our corporate rebounding classes offer, where we travel to your corporate and undertake the classes.
Decide to include more exercise in your daily schedule this year and enjoy the sense of wellness it brings. Let’s get rebounding!
