Rebounding is a type of aerobic exercise that is performed while jumping on a mini-trampoline or a rebounder. Jumps can be fast or slow, and can be mixed with rest or aerobic stepping. It can be only cardio or a combination of cardio and strengthening exercises by using body weight, dumbbells or ankle weights for added resistance.
"Rebounding has longevity because it is easy to commit to as it is highly enjoyable, time efficient – and leaves you feeling de-stressed, invigorated and energised! People who rebound find they are able to work longer, sleep better, and feel less tense and nervous." - ReboundSA
"2 minutes of rebounding is equivalent to 6 minutes of running, 10 minutes of swimming and 22 mins of walking. A 5-minute bounce is therefore equivalent to doing a quick jog around the block and 20 minutes offers similar benefits to health and fitness session of over an hour." - ReboundSA
Pilates is a form of low-impact exercise that aims to strengthen muscles while improving postural alignment and flexibility. Pilates moves tend to target the core, although the exercises work other areas of your body as well. Pilates teaches you the correct movement activation and sequence, starting in the central core and not from the outer dominant muscles. Pilates is a functional way of strengthening the body, by using the mind, correct breathing and pattern of movements. Pilates can aid in improving posture, spinal support, strength and flexibility.
