Is Rebounding Healthier Than Jogging?

We have a trick question for you. Will you burn more calories rebounding on a trampoline than you will jogging? Not such a trick question because you can! If you have ever wondered, is rebounding healthier than jogging? We can tell you it is. The main reason is that when you're on a trampoline you are landing on a soft surface and when you jog you are pounding the pavement -- literally -- and that can lead to hip and joint pain.

Here are some fun in-ground and above ground trampoline facts:

  1. It only takes ten minutes of rebounding to burn as many calories as you would on a thirty minute jog!
  2. Fitness classes are featuring trampoline exercises as a way to offer healthy activities without risk of injury
  3. When you are jumping on a trampoline it never feels like exercise!
