What is a Rebounder?
The rebounder is a mini-trampoline used in circuit-training in many gyms and fitness studios. Rebounding was revitalized in 1998 when J.B. Berns first introduced his "urban rebounding" group exercise class in New York. A relatively lightweight piece of fitness apparatus, rebounders or mini-trampolines offer an effective aerobic workout which results in improved strength, co-ordination, and balance. Rebounder workouts exercise both muscles and skeleton. As a result, rebounding helps to build bone mass and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Rebounders Offer Low-Impact Workouts
An exercise routine on a rebounder or mini-trampoline is a relatively low-impact workout, as the soft surface absorbs 87 percent of the shock, when bouncing. So it's a good fitness workout for joints and ligaments.
Rebounders Improve Lymph Flow
According to some studies, rebound exercise on a trampoline stimulates the lymph flow better than any other form of exercise-workout. Without a strong circulation of the lymph, waste can build up within the body leading to symptoms of illness.

Rebounder Mini-Trampoline and Weight
Rebounder Mini-Trampolines improve health and fitness, build muscle tissue, and develop a leaner body shape. They also help to raise metabolism and may also help to develop a flat stomach. To lose fat and reduce weight, workouts using Rebounder trampolines need to be combined with a calorie-controlled diet. Because unless you create a calorie deficit, you can't burn fat and therefore lose weight.
