    Hey Bethany

    I find the best way to find out little bits of info about things like this are to do a google search... Google and just type in trampoline and tone bottom or something like that and see what comes up.... Just in case some people don't see your thread till the morning and if you are anything like me you will be wanting answers asap lol ... maybe you could post your findings on here also??? be interested to see that one!!!

    I have no idea but it can't do anyharm I'm sure..... and its good fun!!!!

    hope you are feeling good tonight hun

    Gen xxx

    Hi Gen
    Had a look and there is different exercises for thights there is a bun and thigh roller but that looks to hard for me and also ankle weights for doing leg raises and it also says swimming skipping and cycling for thighs and the rebounder is not so much for thighs or bottom

    hiya bethany, i have a rebounder and its great for toning legs and bums!!

    its alot harder than you'll think too, it takes alot of energy jumping up and down lol - i was knackered after just a few mins to begin with but forced myself to do an extra minuite evry time i used it :p

    rebounding is one of the best exercises you can do as its good for fitness, weightloss, the heart and the lymphatic system. plus its cheap too :D

    I have one too - only bought it last week but I put on some music (timed for 15 minutes) then bounce like a fool.

    When I get off I'm sweating like crazy so I know it's good for CV work. Not sure if it tones up though but I'm really enjoying it!

    I have been rebounding on and off for about 6 months, and absolutely love it! (Mine was £1 at a car boot sale!:p). I plug in my MP3 player and dance rather than bouncing. Dancing is not such hard work, and you can keep going for much longer. It's also better for the knees! I can go for about an hour at a push! It's great for getting your steps up if you use a pedometer.

    This is interesting! I have had one for years and have never used it!
    I am going to pull it out now and get bouncing, gentle jogging on it is supposed to be very good as well..

    I've been thinking of getting one of these, but they all seem costly.

    Found a good site with info about them:

    http://www.weightlossresources.co.uk/exercise/reviews/rebounding.htm
    It says:
    What Is Rebounding?

    Put simply – bouncing on a mini trampoline. Unlike regular trampolining, the aim isn’t to bounce high or perform gymnastic tricks, but to perform a series of small, controlled movements.

    "Just bought myself a mini trampoline... and what a hoot! It's surprisingly good exercise, and I can have a bounce whilst watching the telly. I'm planning to use it most evenings when I come home from work - I usually just collapse in front of the box” – Sarah X
    Benefits of Rebounding

    A zero-impact exercise, rebounding provides many benefits for you and your body:
    • Improves circulation
    • Increases the capacity of heart and lungs
    • Lowers cholesterol levels
    • Improves co-ordination and balance
    • Reduces stress and tension
    • Improves muscle tone (particularly legs, thighs, hips, abdomen and arms)
    • Increases energy and vitality
    • Boosts the lymphatic and immune system
    • Fits in with your lifestyle
    • AND IS GREAT FUN!
    Plus, unlike many other aerobic activities, rebounding places no strain on the joints of your body.


    Just gotta try & find one cheap enough now!

    Rebounding is great but you neeeeeeeeeed a good sports bra if you are well-endowed lol!

    I got mine from Argos a few weeks ago - Reebok one recommended by Weightlossresources (thats such a great site, I'm a member, they have brilliant message boards too!) and it was £24.99 - usual RRP is £49.99

    Certainly made my stomach muscles ache, which reminds me I must get back on it....
