Rebound Fitness: HIIT Rebound Compilation 2

I am always looking for more workouts done on a rebounder. There are actually quite a few rebounder DVDs out there that I have resisted buying because they are all pretty expensive for a workout DVD ($17-24). But I decided to give Rebound Fitness a try. If I like it, they have quite a few compilation DVDs I can purchase. And I am always looking for more rebounder workouts. Rebounder Fitness workouts are created in the UK. Two of the workouts are done in a gym setting but Sandweight Conditioning is done outside in front of some castle ruins. Very cool! Having done all 3 workouts now, there is only one I will probably return to frequently. I wasn’t crazy about Bounce HIIT and Sandwieght Conditioning, though an excellent workout, was really advanced for me–so there is a dread factor in returning to it. Box Fit Rebound was my favorite and right at my fitness level.

Rebound Fitness: HIIT Rebound Compilation 2 contains 3 workouts and a 1:30 minute tutorial that teaches you how to jump on your rebounder with intensity. Rather than using your rebounder like a trampoline, which is fun and you can get a decent workout, you push your feet down into the trampoline. You will not jump as high but you definitely work harder. This is an important jumping technique to learn to get the most out of your rebounder workouts. You can’t really qualify a rebounder workout as a HIIT workout without using this jumping technique.

Bounce HIIT is 29 minutes; the first minute is intro; 5 minute warm up and 2 minute cool down/stretch. This workout is led by a trainer named Pamela. For this workout you alternate cardio moves on the rebounder with bodyweight strength moves on the floor but using the rebounder. I was not terribly impressed with this workout. It was a good workout but I didn’t love it. For one, I could barely hear the music so I had to use Spotify to get some motivating music. Then there is the fact that my rebounder is so different from the one the trainer is using that I could not keep the same time with her. I am used to that but my favorite rebounder trainers (AngieFitnessTV and Barlates) also use a bungee rebounders (like mine) and I can keep time with them the majority of the time. And finally, I am accustomed to burning about 220-260 calories during my doubles workouts lately. I did this as a doubles workout and burned 173 calories in the course of this workout. It is an interval workout but my heart rate never got out of the cardio zone and it dipped into the fat burning zone every time we did a body weight strength exercise. I don’t know. I feel like I am being too hard on this workout. It was a solid workout. I just was disappointed with it and probably won’t return to it.

Box Fit Rebound is 38:30 minutes; no real warm up though you march on the rebounder for about 20 seconds before #1 and there is a 2 minute stretch. Equipment: rebounder and weighted gloves. The trainer who leads this workout is Jeannine. This was a pretty good workout. It is cardio boxing and core focused though there are some kicks and some basic rebounder cardio moves. I liked Jeannine but the form for some of her punches are some of the worst I’ve seen and I’ve seen some pretty bad form in workout DVDs. Nevertheless, she was likable, upbeat and put together a fun and effective workout. It is extremely varied as you can see by the breakdown below. So no boredom! Jeannine’s voice was clear but the music is not very loud so feel free to add your own music. I burned 306 calories and was in my cardio heart rate zone 76% of the workout. I was in my peak heart rate 4 minutes of the workout and I “walked” 3,539 steps.

Sandweight Conditioning is 41 minutes; no warm up and 5:30 minute stretch. Equipment: sandweights and rebounder. You are holding the sandbag weights from the very beginning. This is an advanced cardio + strength metabolic workout. This excellent workout is led by Vikki. It is total body conditioning–well, not total body. You don’t really work your back or chest but everything else is hit hard! Mostly shoulders, lower body and core. There is cardio, too, plus the pace of this workout makes it very metabolic. I was working very hard. As mentioned above, this workout is set out doors in front of castle ruins. Beautiful scenery. This is the only workout of the 3 that the trainer’s voice and the music were the appropriate volume and balanced. I burned 283 calories, I was in my cardio heart rate zone for 48% of the workout and was in my peak heart rate zone for 9 minutes of the workout.

    1. Have you done any of their workouts? Maybe I chose the wrong one for my first SanFran workout but I started one this weekend and didn’t finish it. I could barely hear the music and the trainer was using a spring bound rebounder and the squeaking of the springs was as loud as her talking. I stopped it after 5 minutes. It could have been a good workout but everything about the audio was unpleasant. If you have done them and can recommend one with good (audible) music and no loud squeaking of springs–please link to it here. I would like to try it.
