Rebounding on the mini trampoline.

Now that I am focusing on losing weight and exercising, I am “checking out” those trouble spots for improvement. One area that really bothers me is cellulite! (I’ll spare everyone a photo on this one 🙂 ) About 6 months ago, I read that using a mini trampoline would decongest the lymphatic system thus helping to decrease cellulite. Of course, rebounding is also supposed to give you a low impact total body workout – aerobically, strengthening bones and muscles, increasing balance, stability and metabolism, among many other claims. I was sold!

So, I did buy a mini trampoline. I chose to start with a cheapie one from Walmart for about $20. I wanted to make sure I would use it before I invested in something expensive. Now, up until this week, I have used it very sporadically. But, having made the commitment to lose weight and exercise, I have been using it as a part of my regular excercise routine.

I wonder, will only 4 to 5 minutes a day actually help when combined with diet and exercise? Any thoughts from anyone out there?


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.

  1. Hiya,
    I absolutely love my mini trampoline – but it’s in the garage at the moment and I can’t really use it!
    It did wonders for my fitness when i used it regularly.
    Also – 5 mins is better nothing!
