ReboundFit: Relaxation and Stretching on Mini Trampolines

Relaxation and Stretching in Mini Trampolines is a lovely flexibility/stretch routine done on the rebounder. At the bottom right hand corner of the screen it says that it is done in collaboration with Bellicon. This makes a lot of sense to me because Bellicon Home Streaming offers quite a few yoga/flexibility/mobility workouts done on the rebounder and it is hard to find these types of workouts anywhere else. So I was very pleased to come across this workout. I did it on my recovery day. I started with a very low key rebounder cardio workout to get myself warm up and finished with this long stretch. You are warmed up a little at the beginning of the workout with a few minutes of high, feel good bounces then you move into the stretching. The majority of the stretching is done on the rebounder but at the end you are stretching on the floor. You are standing for those stretches so you don’t need a mat. However, I was able to do most of those stretches on my rebounder as well. This workout has beautiful music to accompany it. The first two songs are Sarah McLachlan songs. I am not familiar with the rest of the artists but it was beautiful and relaxing music, too.

Relaxation and Stretching in Mini Trampolines is 18:35 minutes. The only equipment you need is your rebounder.
