Just what is rebounding?
It's one of the newest forms of personal fitness that is quickly becoming popular for its affordability, effectiveness, and general appeal. Unlike normal trampolines a rebounder is a mini-trampoline that individuals use for personal fitness as well as fun. It has been associated with muscular growth, reducing arthritis pain, detoxification, quick weight loss, cardiovascular health, lymph node flushing and more.

Rebounding provides a full body workout with minimal cost, space and time. It involves jumping on a rebounder and can extend into many different exercises and exercise routines. Rebounding can be as simple as walking or as vigorous as a fast paced aerobic, high energy workout. Some of the more popular rebounding exercises include:
- Slow paced jumping
- Fast paced jumping
- Rebounder-style sprinting
- Star jumps / jumping jack jumps
- Cross country ski jumps
- Knee raise jumps
- Side twists
- Scissor jumps
- Alternating feet jumps
- High jumps
- Seated bounce
- Abdominal crunches
- Bicycle crunches
In addition to the dynamic uses a rebounder provides, it's a very practical tool. It takes up roughly the same space as a small coffee table, requires very little maintenance, can be folded away or stored in the closet and used by children (with supervision), adults and the elderly. A high-end rebounder like the Needak can be used in apartments without concern of waking neighbors due to low noise, rubber floor leg tips and the impact absorption of both the mat and springs. For those customers that may have balance issues, you can get the optional Needak stabilizing bar which easily attaches to every Needak rebounder.
You can get a full cardiovascular workout with a Needak rebounder in about twenty minutes without leaving your room. And when you're not using the rebounder, you can easily fold it away (for the foldable versions) or lean it against a wall where it takes about as much floor space as a shoe-rack.
In terms of time and money, creating a home gym or purchasing gym memberships that often go unused can lead to wasted investments and feelings of frustration. Given that you can jump on a rebounder, run on it, stretch on it, recreate a variety of movements that would otherwise require several pieces of equipment and also create personalized workouts using a minimal amount of space, a rebounder can be a money, time and space saving decision.
