A rebounder is a sports enthusiast who employs the use of a trampoline as a means of enjoying exercise that is beneficial for both the mind and the body. Many rebounders enjoy the art of rebounding as part of a daily exercise regimen, while others choose to participate in rebounding competitions utilizing larger trampolines in a team setting.

Rebounding is understood to provide a number of health benefits for the rebounder. Perhaps the most commonly cited benefit is the excellent cardiovascular workout that is derived from working out on a trampoline. The simple action of rebounding provides an aerobic workout that is good for the heart, allowing even people who are not currently up to a the rigors of a traditional aerobics class to begin improving the general physical condition.

Part of the allure for the rebounder is that the exercise regimen is an excellent means of firming up a number of areas of the body. Rebounding can be especially helpful in helping to firm sections of the body after weight loss has occurred. The up and down movements that are part of the rebounding process help to firm up arms, thighs, and legs. The rebounder can also be a great way to add tone and definition to the hips and abdomen.

It is not unusual for a rebounder to report a feeling of renewed mental energy after spending some time with the trampoline. The repetitive action combined with the physical exertion can help to ease the mind, releasing endorphins into the system and helping to achieve a more even mood. This is one reason that many people choose to keep a small trampoline in the home. A personal device of this nature allows the rebounder to work in a twenty to thirty minute workout with a great deal of convenience, and also makes it possible to enjoy a workout at a moment’s notice.

All in all, the rebounder is able to enjoy an exercise that requires very little in the way of equipment, can be enjoyed at just about any time, and provides a world of health benefits. Along with use as a daily exercise, rebounding can also be conducted in a group setting, and even turned into a competition, with rebounders incorporating some aerial tricks into the exercise routine.
