It sounds super-fancy, but essentially, it’s a mini-trampoline. “Rebounding” has become a popular exercise for its cardiovascular benefits and for the fact that it protects the joints from the fatigue and impact of exercising on hard surfaces (such as running). Rebounding is reported to be an effective tool […]
