“The common denominator of all exercises is opposition to the gravitational pull of the earth. Even before birth, the human body grows strong enough to be able to resist the ever present downward pull of Mother Earth. A child learns to crawl, walk, run, play and even throw balls by constantly competing with gravity.
Formal exercise methods are no different. To exercise the body, one carry’s out various movements designed against gravity, utilizing everything from body parts to fulcrums, levers, pulleys, inclined planes and even dead weights to challenge major muscle groups. With rebound exercise, you oppose gravity, but you also utilize two other natural dynamic forces found within our environment, two forces: acceleration and deceleration. When your body stops its downward movement at the bottom of the bounce, the force of deceleration and gravity come into play. When the body begins its upward motion, acceleration is added to the other two forces. The physical human body doesn’t recognize these three different forces but simply accepts the combination of the three forces as an increase of the gravitational pull of the earth. Logically, we know that increasing gravity is impossible, but the cells of the body don’t. Because all of the cells of the body have the capability to adjust to their environment, all of the cells of your body begin to adjust by becoming individually and collectively stronger. Old-fashioned exercise programs teach how you can strengthen the muscles of the body. Rebounding is an advanced exercise in that it is a cellular exercise. All cells of the body become stronger. This includes muscles, bones, skin, connective tissues, and all vital organs, as well as muscles used for digestion and elimination. Even the cells of the eyes are strengthened by rebounding.”

 1. It provides an increased G-force (gravitational load), which strengthens the musculoskeletal systems. 
 2. It protects the joints from the chronic fatigue delivered by exercising on hard surfaces. 
 3. It helps manage body composition and improves muscle-to-fat ratio. 
 4. It increases capacity for respiration. 
 5. It circulates more oxygen to the tissues. 
 6. It establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the tissues and the oxygen made    

 7. It aids lymphatic circulation by stimulating the millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system. 
 8. It tends to reduce the height to which the arterial pressures rise during exertion. 
 9. It lessens the time during which blood pressure remains abnormal after severe activity. 
10. It assists in the rehabilitation of a heart problem. 
11. It increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells. 
12. It improves resting metabolic rate so that more calories are burned for hours after exercise. 
13. It causes muscles to perform work in moving fluids through the body to lighten the heart's load. 
14. It decreases the volume of blood pooling in the veins of the cardiovascular system preventing chronic 

15. It encourages collateral circulation by increasing the capillary count in the muscles and decreasing the 

      distance between the capillaries and the target cells. 
16. It strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body so that they work more efficiently. 
17. It allows the resting heart to beat less often. 
18. It lowers circulating cholesterol and triglyceride levels. 
19. It lowers low-density lipoprotein (bad) and increases high-density lipoprotein (good) within the blood 

      holding off the incidence of coronary artery disease. 
20. It promotes tissue repair. 
21. It increases the mitochondria count within the muscle cells, essential for endurance. 
22. It adds to the alkaline reserve of the body, which may be of significance in an emergency requiring 

      prolonged effort. 
23. It improves coordination between the propreoceptors in the joints, the transmission of nerve impulses to 

      and from the brain, transmission of nerve impulses and responsiveness of the muscle fibers. 
24. It improves the brain's responsiveness to the vestibular apparatus within the inner ear, thus improving

25. It offers relief from neck and back pains, headaches, and other pain caused by lack of exercise. 
26. It enhances digestion and elimination processes. 
27. It allows for deeper and easier relaxation and sleep. 
28. It results in better mental performance, with keener learning processes. 
29. It curtails fatigue and menstrual discomfort for women. 
30. It minimizes the number of colds, allergies, digestive disturbances, and abdominal problems. 
31. It tends to slow down atrophy in the aging process. 
32. It is an effective modality by which the user gains a sense of control and an improved self-image. 
33. It is enjoyable!
