SparkPeople Trampoline Bouncing Beauties Team Messageboard http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individual.asp?gid=13816 This is for those of us that love to rebound and use it as either their main portion of fitness or a good portion of it. Let us bounce our bodies healthier on our trampolines. SparkPeople Trampoline Bouncing Beauties Team Messageboard http://www.sparkpeople.com/assets/nav/nav_logo_v3.gif http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individual.asp?gid=13816 How long have you been rebounding? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x13816x53722625 I am at T - 5 days and counting down . . . how long ago did you start using a trampoline as part of your exercise routine? Do you use it exclusively or in conjunction with other types of exercise? Have you been consistent since you started or have you started and stopped and started again? Thu, 13 Jun 2013 04:39:30 EST What is your favorite trampoline exercise? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x13816x53722619 Since I have never done rebounding before, I don't have a favorite exercise yet. I am just really excited to try out everything suggested. I have a knee problem that stops me from running (I ran cross country in high school) and I am anxious to try running on the trampoline. <BR> <BR> What is your favorite exercise? If you know of good links to information, share them here as well!

Right now! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=1336x13816x30838832 Rebounding is one of the best exercises for the entire body that there is. It also gets the lymphatic fluid flowing through our bodies, which helps to release toxins. <BR> <BR> I know I have a hard time getting started, so I thought I'd recruit some moral support. <BR> <BR> Let's all get up, right now, and go jump on our rebounders for 5 minutes. Even the beginners can go 5 minutes with a "health bounce," and maybe we'll end up liking it so much we bounce longer. <BR> <BR> 'K. Going to go ...

Ever tried it for his other purposes, such as rote learning, or improving one's eyesight? <BR> <BR> I just got mine, and have found that his "easy 20 minutes" of bouncing doesn't really translate that gracefully to my (twitchy, gasping) three minutes of bouncing. <BR> <BR> How long does it take to build up one's endurance?

Part of FF includes rebounding, so I went looking for others who enjoy it as well. <BR> I started out with an inexpensive mini-trampoline from Wal-Mart, but soon found that it would probably do more harm than good. My next step was to go with the rebound board like the ones from curves that sit between each station. I chose this due to my plantar faciitus (sp?) i... Mon, 9 Nov 2009 11:42:09 EST Hi Bouncing Beauties! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x13816x24651733 I just recently joined SP. Exercise for me is usually rebounding, hooping, or walking outdoors. I haven't been rebounding in awhile, but plan to get started again. I've committed to 15 minutes 5 times this week. <BR> <BR> I find it so hard to get started though! Rebounding is more work and less fun for me, as compared to hooping or walking, but I want the benefit that comes with rebounding. Sometimes to get myself started I'll use my video play list on Real Player. I pick enough music v...

I would suggest putting the rebounder somewhere you will walk by it plenty in the day and just ask yourself "How about a bounce?" <BR> <BR> A minute or so several times a day will truly make a difference and before you know it you will be doing full workouts on it. Sat, 25 Aug 2007 12:10:01 EST Team Under Construction http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x13816x8505737 Hi. Feel free to come in and post. As the weeks progress I will add to the forums and eventually get this Team off and running. Fri, 24 Aug 2007 21:48:49 EST Welcome. Feel free to introduce yourself here. http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x13816x8505375 I'll start. My name is Tonya. I live in Southwest Alabama and am for at least at the moment a stay at home mom of 3 beautiful daughters and one silly little son. I started this group because I've found it difficult to find people interested in rebounding. I love it, myself and believe in the benefits. I've lost 15 pounds since using a rebounder as my main source of exercise and still counting. So come on in and introduce yourself and lets see what we can get done together.
