In the last few years, rebounding exercise's popularity has grown enormously, with millions of people worldwide now enjoying it as their "go to" workout. The research community has also rediscovered rebounding, publishing research at an unprecedented rate about its remarkable health and fitness benefits.

An extensive research study, published by The Lancet in September of 2018 (1) and involving 1.2 million Americans, showed that people who exercise regularly have significantly fewer "bad self-reported mental health days" in the year than people who don't. In other words, people who exercise are happier. And they found this to be universally true, regardless of age, gender, and just about every other factor, including income bracket. The study showed that you'd have to earn an additional $25,000 a year or more to get the same mental health boost that regular exercise provides.

Supercharge Your Game Console Workout!
“Exergaming,” or using game console programs for exercise, is a fun and convenient way to approach fitness, but studies have shown that it tends to fall short of providing the same level of physical activity as traditional exercise. Fortunately, researchers have discovered a simple solution for boosting the benefits of virtual training sessions from mediocre to awesome: adding a mini-trampoline.

When people first learn about rebounding exercise, they often encounter a very long, very diverse, very impressive list of benefits that, for many people, piques their interest, but for others, like me, it makes them extremely skeptical.
