Bouncercise is the dynamic combination of rebounding with a resistance system. Bouncercise produces a rhythmic movement that facilitates rehabilitation and strengthening on a cellular level, which is most effective in cell detoxification and total-body muscle toning.
This is the most effective and advanced form of rebound exercise, providing the benefits of rebounding to people of all ages and abilities.
Aerobic exercise is a form of activity that elevates your heart rate through sustained exercise. Your heart will become a stronger pump, which usually results in a lower heart rate. Your blood vessels will increase in number and size, resulting in lowering blood pressure. Bouncercise allows you to achieve an aerobic state, which is a vital component of physical fitness. Bouncercise expands the capacity for fuel storage, resulting in extra endurance.
Many people achieve their aerobic workout by way of jogging or treadmills. However, a study performed by scientists at NASA found bouncing in a mini-trampoline to be 68% more efficient than jogging.
“…for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the
biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a rebounder trampoline than with running…”

Because Bouncercise is performed on a type of mini-trampoline with an elevated mat and springs, the surface absorbs the impact of the movement of the body. As we get older, our joints are not as forgiving, and the low-impact benefit is a key ingredient in maintaining flexibility in our joints and muscles. A study conducted at the University of Utah analyzed impact loads of mini-trampolines and a wooden board track. The study indicated that the person on the mini-trampoline experienced 1/6th of the impact force than that of the wooden board track. Our joints will endure 84% less shock if we exercise on a Bouncercise rebounder.
Lymphatic Stimulation and Detoxification
The lymphatic system produces and stores cells that fight infection (lymphatic cells) as well as the channels that carry lymph. It runs parallel with the veins and arteries, but unlike the circulatory system, it has no pump. The lymphatic system relies on body movement to open and close the one-way valves to carry lymphatic cells through the channels.
When the lymphatic system is congested, the cells become deprived of oxygen, affecting the body’s ability to rid itself of its own waste material. Over time, other body systems that rely on the lymphatic system for waste removal will also become compromised, setting the stage for pain and disease.
Bouncercise activates the lymphatic system, increasing lymphocytes that will eat away diseased cells. Just a few minutes of Bouncercise may increase lymph flow as much as fifteen times.
If I chose the most important benefit of Bouncercise, this would be it. Disease does not like oxygen and it does not like a stimulated lymphatic system.
