A Simple and Unique Workout: Jump Your Way to Fitness
If You’re More Apt to Make Excuses Than
Fitness Goals, Check This Out!
In this fast paced world some of us don’t have the time or finances to go to a work out facility. I myself have gotten caught up in the “not having the time to take care of my body” syndrome.
A friend of mine turned me onto Rebounding, which helped me tremendously! Simply put, it’s jumping on a mini trampoline. Not only is it fun, it is the only exercise that exercises every cell in your body at the same time.
For under $100, you can purchase a rebounder and set it up in front of your TV and jump away to your favorite program or listen to some music! Plus, rebounding places no strain on the joints of your body.
The many benefits of Rebounding:
- Improves circulation
- Increases the capacity of heart and lungs
- Lowers cholesterol levels
- Improves co-ordination and balance
- Reduces stress and tension
- Improves muscle tone (particularly legs, thighs, hips, abdomen and arms)
- Increases energy and vitality
- Boosts the lymphatic and immune system
The human body needs to move. The lymph system bathes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. Contrary to blood which is pumped by the heart, the lymph is totally dependent on physical exercise to move. Without adequate movement, the cells are left stewing in their own waste products and starving for nutrients, a situation which contributes to arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases as well as aging. Vigorous exercise such as rebounding is reported to increase lymph flow by 15 to 30 times.
So, no matter your age or weight, rebounding is a highly beneficial (and fun) form of exercise!
