Besides being easy to set up and store, a mini trampoline is inexpensive and convenient for home, the office or travel. Buy a mini trampoline at sporting goods stores, super stores or online, and include a stabilizing bar for added comfort and safety.
Mini trampoline rebounding can provide numerous health benefits. Besides providing aerobic exercise, rebounding rejuvenates skin and promotes cell growth, according to personal trainer Cindy Brotherton. Also jumping on a rebounder is beneficial for those suffering with various health conditions from arthritis and back pain to asthma and allergies, according to Brotherton. You're also less likely to sustain injuries while rebounding compared to other forms of aerobic exercise such as jogging, says Brotherton.
