This is a professional Rebounder, which is entirely different to a trampoline. It's the original brand, and remains the best on the market.
Rebounding is one of the very best ways to improve your whole body, even NASA have studied it! "Rebound exercise is the most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man" - NASA Space Agency.
You can ‘bounce’ in the comfort of your own home. It's really easy and a lot of fun, everyone who tries this form of exercise loves it! Perfect for fitting around some TV or music time.
It is suitable for all ages, do as much or as little as you like. It is recommended to build up gently, and just a few minutes a day can be very powerful. For those unstready on their feet, there's an optional stabilizing bar. And you don't need to jump high in the air! Bouncing but keeping both feet totally in contact is the first exercise you will learn, this requires no particular skill or fitness, yet has huge benefits for the whole body.
Rebounding has a particular impact upon the lymphatic system and circulation. It also helps overall strength, muscle tone, and balance and coordination. And when it comes to slimming, we highly recommend you add this to your programme, just a small time investment can yield impressive results.
Includes a free DVD and book of easy rebounding exercises.
Dr Morton Walker specialises in orthomolecular medicine and has authored thousands of magazine and clinical journal articles as well as 62 published books. In his article ‘Jumping for Health’, published in the ‘Townsend Letter For Doctors’, he detailed in depth some of the benefits of rebounding, and you will find these below.

The legs unscrew which means it can be stored flat, but we recommend you simply rest against a wall for example if you need to so your rebounder is always ready to use.

Jumping’s Oxygenating Effect
Rebound exercise strengthens your heart in two ways: It improves the tone and quality of the muscle itself and it increases the co-ordination of the fibres as they wring blood out of the heart during each beat. Your rate of rebounding will vary depending on how vigorously you bounce and how high you lift your feet off the mat
The Detoxification Effect of Rebounding
The lymphatic system is the metabolic garbage can of the body. It eliminates dead cells, nitrogenous wastes, fat, infections, viruses, heavy metals and other assorted junk cast off by the cells. The rebounding movement provides the stimulus for a free-flowing system that drains away these poisons. Unlike the arterial system the lymphatic system does not have its own pump. It has no heart muscle to move fluid around through its lymphatic vessels. To activate the flow of lymph away from the tissues and back into the main pulmonary circulation, lymphatic flow requires:
- muscular contraction from exercise and movement
- gravitational pressure
- internal massage to the valves of the lymph duct
Rebounding supplies all three methods of removing waste products from the cells and from the body. Arterial blood then enters the capillaries in order to provide the cells with fresh tissue fluid containing food and oxygen. The bouncing motion effectively removes and recycles the lymph and the entire blood supply through the circulatory system many times during the course of the rebounding session.
Rebounding’s stabilizing effect on the nervous system Rebounding is an excellent method of reducing stress. It can put the user into a trance-like state and totally relax him or her. Jumping for health and fitness not only stabilizes the nervous system during the exercise period, but continues to help maintain equilibrium after one steps off the device. The result is increased resistance to environmental, physical, emotional and mental stress.
Dr Morton Walker’s 30 health benefits to rebounding daily
- increases the capacity for respiration
- circulates more of oxygen to the tissues
- establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the body and the oxygen made available
- causes muscles to perform work in moving fluids through the body to lighten the heart’s load
- tends to reduce the height to which the arterial pressures rise during exertion
- lessens the time during which blood pressure remains abnormal after severe activity
- holds off the incidence of cardiovascular disease
- increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells
- aids lymphatic circulation, as well as the flow in the veins of the circulatory system
- encourages collateral circulation
- strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body so that they work more efficiently
- allows the resting heart to beat less often
- lowers elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels
- stimulates the metabolism
- promotes body growth and repair
- tones up the glandular system, especially the thyroid to increase its output
- adds to the alkaline reserve of the body which may be of significance in an emergency requiring prolonged effort
- chemically attains absolute potential of the cells
- reserves bodily strength and physical efficiency
- expands the body’s capacity for fuel storage and endurance
- improves co-ordination through the transmission of nerve impulses and responsiveness of the muscle fibres
- affords muscular vigour from increased muscle fibre tone
- offers relief from neck and back pain, headaches and other pain caused by lack of exercise
- enhances digestion and elimination processes
- allows for better and easier relaxation and sleep
- results in a better mental performance
- curtails fatigue and menstrual discomfort for women
- minimises the number of colds, allergies, digestive disturbances and abdominal problems
- tends to slow down ageing
- reduces the likelihood of obesity
In her article ‘Rebounding: Aerobic Resistive Exercise’, Tina Wellman, Ph.D. writes:
Rebounding is great for toddlers. Movement affects balance. Rebounding helps stabilize right and left hemispheric brain balance and helps develop spacial awareness, coordination, fitness and agility. It also improves reactions and increases concentration.
All orders come with a free instructional DVD and a copy of Margaret Hawkins’s book ‘Rebounding For Health’ (value £5.99). In this book she also tells us how rebounding made her arthritis disappear as well as her 93 allergies!
What people have said about rebounding
“I have been recommending our clients for over 15 years the great benefits of rebounding. There are always PT Bouncers in the house, in the garden and several in the barn where all types of natural therapy courses were held. They were so useful during the breaks to energize participants between sessions, instead of teas, coffees and cakes." Phylipa Delglyn, Resources For Life
“Rebounding allows the muscles to go through the full range of motion at equal force. It helps people to shift their weight properly and to be aware of the body positions and balance.” James White Ph.D.
Director of Research and Rehabilitation in the physical education department at the University of California in San Diego.
"Trampolining is extremely good fun and I have yet to find a person on a Trampoline that wasn't either grinning or giggling wildly by the third bounce. It is as if the bouncing motion stimulates some inner instinct that gives us a sense of well being. I am sure that we can all remember being instructed by our parents to " Stop Bouncing on the BED !", and yet the desire to bounce was still there. The Psychological benefits of Trampolining are clear, Laughter, excitement and Relaxation." Margaret Hawkins, Rebounding For Health
“It looks too simple…it IS simple! That is probably the biggest argument against it. How could anything so simple be so good for you?” Albert Carter, Founder of the National Institute of Reboundology and Health
“My favourite of all forms of exercise is rebounding.” Lesley Kenton
“If you see somebody jumping up and down on the second floor of the White house, that’s me rebounding.” Ronald Reagan
