Trampoline Workout

You might consider a trampoline child's play, but today, classes like Urban Rebounding will jumpstart your fitness routine.

Fitness instructor Eran Malone says, "We call it the rebounder because you're actually jumping up and down on it, going against gravitational pull -- it creates a pumping effect within your body. It helps your blood pump and it helps your lymphatic system pump out toxins."

While you're getting a full body workout, you're also saving your joints. Malone says it's 85% less impact than the same workout on the ground. The trick is to press down into the screen and lift your legs up higher to add intensity. For more of a workout, add weight resistance with a medicine ball.
