Welcome to

WEEK TWO!

This weeks session is all about the bounce!

Now before you all panic and say you cannot do this, read the below FACTS and BENEFITS of rebound training.....

  1. Anti-inflammatory effects.  Rebounding efficiently stimulates and helps lymphatic drainage which has anti-inflammatory effects on your body. 

  2. Arthritis Management. This type of exercise helps lubricate the joints and reduce the pain and stiffness that comes along with this disease.  

  3. Increase bone density.  Rebounding can help seniors increase their bone strength and reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis women and one in five men will break a bone because of osteoporosis. 

  4. Reduces the risk of falls. Rebounding helps improve balance and muscle-strengthening which can help prevent falls. 

  5. Slows muscle atrophy.  Rebounding helps slow down the inevitable muscle atrophy in the aging process. 

  6. Easy on the joints.  Rebounding has much less impact on joints and soft tissues than other exercises. 

  7. Fun and portable.  Rebounding can be done anywhere you are and it is fun.  Fun exercise means more consistent exercise and more benefits from that exercise!
