I agree with people saying whichever you like to do is what you should do. My thinking is that step aerobics is going to burn more calories because a rebounder is going to help you along and there will certainly be some momentum carrying you a bit. But I'm no expert, just a thought.

I love my mini trampoline, even though my usual routine is boxing,kettlebells and Rushfit, I enjoy putting on some 80's music and dancing/jumping like a fool....it's a fantastic workout. Step is great too, I just have never felt so refreshed and relaxed after doing it as I have when I rebound.

Better? Whichever you like best and will do most often. As for calorie burn it all depends on who is doing it and how hard they will push themself

I would be the one that would try them both out to for myself!

I'd go for a trampoline because it doesn't hurt my knees, but everyone is different. Like others have said, it's better to do what you think You will go for. No point of spending money on something that's just going to gather dust.

As fun as a trampoline would be, I think I like the step aerobics better.

It doesn't matter how many calories an individual activity does when compared to other activities. Honestly, what matters is that you enjoy it, and will stick with it. Do you like rebounding? Go for it! Do you like Step? Go for it!

What matters is THAT you do it, not WHAT you do. IF you enjoy it, you'll stick with it. If you stick with it, you'll burn more calories than if you quit.

Running burns more calories than most exercises out there, but if you hate it, or can't do it, it doesn't do you much good!

You adjust your diet to the amount of exercise you do, so burning 800 calories or 400, you'll still be aiming to create the same deficit of 500 calories per day. You'll just need to eat more the more exercise you do. :)

Hmmm...
Step aerobics would have some impact.
Rebounding has little to no impact. I love rebounding. Gets my lymph flowing.

In what way "stack up"? What are you wanting to know?

Both are excellent forms of exercise! Do what YOU enjoy doing because you like doing it, not some thing that you hear from somewhere might be "better" that something else.

Exercise is such a small part of weight loss that it's completely irrelevant *what* you do, just *do something*. So do what you like. :)

I'd look at perceived rate of exertion and use that as a guide, or Target Heart Range. The following is the link to the article on Target Heart Rate. www.sparkpeople.com/community/ask_the_expe

Hope that helps you out.

I would think that tramp would get your heart rate up more, but I don't know for sure, and it might be different for you than for me.

Hi, folks!!

How do step aerobics stack up to bouncing on my mini-trampoline?

Thanks for your input!
