Looking for an easy, fun way to reverse the signs of aging, reduce stress and anxiety, speed up your metabolism and stimulate proper digestions? A rebounder, or mini trampoline, is the answer. A rebounder has a “Triple E” rating–meaning it's economical, efficient, and effective. In all honesty in my opinion the best benefit of a rebounder is its anti-aging effects.
Gravity catches up with all of us. As we age, the persistent pull of gravity (or G-Force) causes our body to sag. We develop wrinkles, flabby forearms, round midriffs, stooped shoulders, turkey necks, and compressed spines to name a few unappealing effects of gravity. We must continuously work against the “G-Force” pull caused by gravity through body movement. (Here is where you start rebounding)
Gravitational force is key to understanding the health benefits of rebounding. *By combining the forces of acceleration and deceleration, body cells are tricked into believing they are being subjected to increased gravity. It is this increase in G-force during rebounding (specifically during deceleration) that challenges body cells to strengthen. NASA got hip to this idea and designed an exercise protocol in the zero gravity of space to aid astronauts who suffered from loss of bone density and muscle mass while in space.
Rebounding works on every cell in the body by energizing the lymphatic system through gravitational
pull. It opens internal valves and helps lymphatic fluid move up to 14 times faster. Speeding up the circulation of lymphatic fluid means toxins are flushed out sooner. As toxins flush out, healthy oxygen can flow in, bringing fresh, clean energy and nutrients to your cells. THIS IS WHERE ANTI-AGING COMES IN. All of these benefits help your body effectively fend off the ravages of aging.
Rebounding exercise can bring extraordinary results, including…
· Burning away fat throughout your body
· Increasing muscle strength and reducing muscle tension
· Strengthening your heart
· Relieve arthritis pain
· Rebounding is 68% more efficient than jogging (as noted by NASA in a study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology)
