Jump Your Way to Health & Fitness

From Presidents to NASA Scientists to Olympic Athletes, Everyone Agrees that Rebounders are the Best Fitness Tool Available

“When I’m out at the ranch, I cut down trees. But here in Washington they frown on Presidents who cut down trees. I find it necessary to exercise indoors for security reasons. I have a little trampoline I use to get my exercise. So if you see somebody jumping up & down on the second floor of the White House, that’s me REBOUNDING.” President Ronald Reagan, age 70.

“I keep my REBOUNDER at the foot of my bed, and use it daily.” Bob Hope, age 76.

“..for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running, a finding that might help identify acceleration parameters needed for the design of remedial procedures to avert deconditioning in persons exposed to weightlessness.” N.A.S.A., Journal of Applied Physiology 49(5): 881-887, 1980.

(Detail: N.A.S.A. used the rebounder to restore the 15% losses of bone mass and muscle strength that the astronauts lost in outer space due to the effects of weightlessness. The rebounder was shown to be 68% more effective than running in terms of oxygen uptake.)


“The mini-trampoline (rebounder) provides a convenient form of exercise with a major advantage being its apparent low level of trauma to the musculoskeletal system.” Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 10: 401-408, 1990.

(Detail: the rebounder absorbs 87% of the impact, as compared to running thereby making it a safe, low-impact exercise, gentle enough even for the disabled and the elderly.)


“Everything improves: the blood, the brain, the lungs, all the internal organs, those of the senses, the muscles, and more … It uses vertical motion where any other exercise movement employs horizontal motion. At the bottom of the bounce, the three forces of acceleration, deceleration, and gravity … result in total physiological enhancement of all cells, tissues, organs, and systems of the body.” Morton Walker, D.P.M., Jumping for Health, Garden City Park: Avery, c. 1989, pp.vii-ix.

(Detail: also published article in “Townsend Letter for Doctors”.)


” … We have telemonitored the patients while they are carrying out their rebounding exercises and found that the results have been very good, both from a physical and a psychological standpoint.” Kenneth D. Smyth, Medical Director, Idaho Elks Rehabilitation Hospital

” … Bouncing to music on a rebounder is a safe, convenient, and unbelievably fun way to spring into shape, maintain your fitness level, or recover from injury.” E. Lee Rice, D.O., F.A.A.F.P., Medical Director, San Diego Sports Medicine Center.

(Detail: universal side effect is smiling.)


“Bouncing off fat … Use of a minitrampoline (or rebounder) has proven to be an efficient form of exercise with virtually no harmful side effects. Your cardiovascular fitness will excel, and you will be toning your body at the same time. It fires up cellular metabolism, energizing every cell with fresh oxygen and nutrients. The low impact (such as the light pressure on the thighs) stimulates drainage, easing waste material out of the lymphatic system.” Ann Louise Gittleman, M.S., C.N.S., The Fat Flush Plan, New York: McGraw-Hill, c.2002, p. 93.

” … numerous benefits previously unavailable in athletic training programs. The improvement in fitness was astonishing, especially when both resistance and rebounding were involved.” Dr. Harry Sneider, Olympic Trainer, Arcadia: Sneider’s Family Fitness, Inc., c. l981, p. ix.

(Detail: Advisor and Coach to Olympic teams, nominated for head coaching position for 1984 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team.)


“I was born with cerebral palsy which affected my right side … After 11 days on a rebounder, I was able to wiggle two of my right toes … Within two months I lost 27 pounds and went from a size 16 to a size 10, and in three months’ time, I was able to control my entire right foot. I now have control over my complete right side!” Pat Glaspie, Ritzville, WA, quoted in: Albert E. Carter, New Miracles of Rebound Exercise,   Fountain Hills: A.L.M., c. 1988, p. 12.

“A unique exercise that we enthusiastically recommend for both cardiovascular fitness and strength is called Resistive Rebounding. Rebound exercise has been available since the trampoline was first invented in 1936 … Trampolining was introduced to the armed services prior to World War II and used to develop balance, dexterity, coordination, rhythm, and timing. It also produced strong, well-developed physiques … Rebounding is probably the best all-around exercise you can get.” Harvey & Marilyn Diamond, Fit for Life II, New York, Warner Books, c. 1987, pp. 145, 147.
