NASA says so

In case you’re not totally sold on the idea of rebounding, check out a clip I noticed in this month’s issue of Self magazine:

According to NASA:

“Hopping on a mini trampoline, also known as an urban rebounder, is 68 percent more effective than running on a treadmill at a similar heart rate and oxygen intake.” [Self magazine, April 2011]

So I’m off to get bouncing–> NASA says so!

wow – I wonder if jumping on a large trampoline has the same effect? My neighbor has a huge one in her backyard that I jumped on last week! The weather here in DFW is finally kind of nice, reminds me of California.

Well I’m glad NASA is taking the time out of their busy Space studies to learn more about rebounders :0

How fun is this!! ๐Ÿ™‚


How awesome I want one of these!


    Thank you so much!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚


this looks awesome!!!!


Silly question? How high does your ceiling have to be for a rebounder? I never got to try one and was thinking to purchase one, but I’m afraid to hit my head on the ceiling ๐Ÿ˜‰ Fun blog by the way ๐Ÿ˜‰


    Our current apartment does not have high ceilings by any means… so you should be fine! I never worry about my head bumping the ceiling (and I’m 5’7″)– the only thing that has ever happened is my hands have touched the ceiling when I do jumping jacks, but even then, it’s only when I bounce extra-high! My husband is taller than me, and has had no issue when he bounces either!

    If you have standard ceilings, you should have no problem!


I want a rebounder. Any recco’s on a good brand?


    The Needak rebounder is the BEST!! I actually bought a cheaper ($80) one at first, and had to return it immediately because it felt like such a safety hazard when my husband and I tried to put it together! Eeek!

    The Needak rebounder that I ordered after that was a MILLION times better! It’s foldable, so it hides easily under my bed when I don’t want it out, and is really sturdy and durable! I’ve owned mine for 3 years, and it still feels like new. It looks like Amazon has the best price here: (plus free shipping!)
