Bounce your way to a slimmer, sexier physique! Thirty minutes on a trampoline three times per week is all it takes to get your heart healthy and your muscles toned. And 10 minutes of bouncing has the same results as 33 minutes of running.
Depending on how hard you bounce, you can expect to burn anywhere from 200 to 400 calories per hour. Plus, the repetitive bouncing motion helps drain the lymphatic system and detoxify the body. And anyone from age 8 to 80 can do it!
