When you think of cardio exercises, the usuals come to mind — running, cycling, spinning. But one of the best overall cardio workouts is actually rebounding. And now people in Dartmouth can give this unique, low-impact, aerobic exercise a test drive. Cheryl Denman, owner and fitness coach at Costafit Rebounding, wants people to come experience the countless benefits of this highly effective workout.
“It is so restorative to the body. I have had people come to me worried that they will be really sore after a workout, but this is different. They come back and say they don’t feel anything apart from feeling fantastic, rejuvenated and energized,” she says.
Certified Lymphologist Dave Scrivens explains that while rebounding, we experience a moment of G-force which strengthens every cell in our bodies, brings a major increase to lymph flow, and boosts some immune activities by up to 500%.
We’re all about rebounding for 2015. Not only is it great for a quick workout and to get the blood flow going between bouts on Instagram and Pinterest, but it makes us feel equal parts smug (for being so in the know about wellness and mitochondria) and toddler-like (for all that straight-faced bouncing.) These emotions cancel each other out for a pretty chill workout.
