Trampoline exercise is very effective due to the effect it has on the whole body. Trampolining reduces body fat, increases the muscle to fat ratio and increases the efficiency with which the body burns carbohydrate. The upward force of the bounce improves body tone and exercises a whole range of muscles in the body, not just the legs and heart.
According to a study from NASA a 150-pound individual spending one-hour on a rebounder will burn more calories than the same person jogging for an hour. Another study by NASA concluded that “the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running.”
