Trampoline jumping isn’t just for kids anymore! In my search to find a workout that I love and works with my arthritis (let me know if you want a deep dive into my arthritis journey since being diagnosed at 26!), I have tried it all. Some I have liked and some I loathed but one that I loved is rebounding. Rebounder workouts not only aid in weight loss, but a ton more benefits discussed below.
The Benefits of Rebounder Workouts
Rebounding is basically just jumping on small trampoline. Literally that’s it! Rebounding is great because it is easy on your joints. So if you like running – run in place on your rebounder! Like jumping rope – just jump on your rebounder! Want to get in all your steps but don’t feel safe walking around outside or the weather is keeping you inside? Get your steps on your rebounder! Seriously, this little piece of equipment is a game changer when it comes to getting your heart rate up.
Rebounder trampoline workouts can also improve balance which I absolutely need with my arthritis, works to make your body stronger (hello long, lean lines and muscle), body composition, running and cardio performance, and can give the mental clarity that comes with an exercise regime. It also can increase bone density and bone strength which is the perfect for us as we age. Tests have also shown that rebounding workouts can help keep blood glucose within healthy ranges, even if you don’t have type 2 diabetes.
Lymphatic drainage and all the benefits from it are another great benefit to a rebounding workout. In just a 10-15 minute gentle bouncing session (so nothing too strenuous) can kickstart your lymph system and increasing your lymph flow up to 15x greater than normal. What this means for your body is a boost in immunity, removal of harmful toxins, and can even help slow down signs of aging which means tighter and glowy skin.
Another great benefit to rebounding? Weight loss! Rebounders are a great tool for weight loss. A 20-30 minute gentle rebounding workout (so just jumping, nothing fancy) can burn just as much calories as running at a high speed in that same time frame. It also helps create lean muscle in your legs and butt so not only will you sculpt a gorgeous lower body but the muscle will help burn even more calories in the long run.
According to BCAN, 10 minutes of bouncing exercise equals 1-hour jogging, 30 minutes cycling or 20 minutes swimming. Can’t beat that!

There are a ton of rebounders out on the market now because of the popularity. I have tried a few and these are the ones that I think are worth it and why. If you have any questions, let me know in the comments below! Pro tip – if you live in an apartment are worried about your neighbors below, I recommend getting this mat to put underneath it. It is totally optional as the trampolines really don’t make much noise, but it gave me peace of mind to know I am not disturbing anyone while I workout.
Stamina InTone Oval Jogger (35% off right now!)
Holds up to 250lbs
This is one of my favorites for a beginner or someone with bad balance or just someone nervous to jump on a trampoline since it has handle bars. The handlebars are clutch for beginners because you can get the rhythm for jumping with the security of still being able to hold onto something. It also helps that the jump space is a little bigger than most rebounders with 48 inches. It also has a counter on it that records the amount of jumps you take and calories burned. It also comes with attached resistance bands if you want to level up your workout with extra resistance training.

BCAN Foldable Mini Trampoline
Holds up to 330lbs
This BCAN rebounder (which is the top rated rebounder on Amazon!) is perfect. It folds so it is perfect for the home or a small apartment if you don’t want it out when you are not working out on it. It also has a handlebar for beginners or those that need extra stability that can be removed as well! It is also a smooth jump because of the closed spring design which also makes it easy to put together as well!

JumpSport 350/370/570 PRO Indoor Heavy Duty Fitness Trampoline
My all around pick is the JumpSport PRO for various reasons:
LARGE FRAME AREA TO WORK OUT: 39-inch frame provides a large surface area with lots of freedom to move
CUSTOMIZABLE TENSION SETTINGS: 7 adjustable tension settings that allow changes to mat firmness for a customized bounce
SILENT: Virtually silent and wonderfully smooth, cushioned, yet lively bounce
STABLE LEGS: Arched legs provide stability and resist tipping for added safety
The only cons are that it doesn’t fold (which isn’t too bad since it fits in my closet and that there is no handlebar (I have balance issues so like that extra bit of stability but again, not a dealbreaker).
