SanFran Fitness: Low Impact Beginners Bounce Fit Workout with Stability Bar

Low Impact Beginners Bounce Fit Workout with Stability Bar is a rebounder workout from SanFran Fitness designed for older adults or people with balance/coordination issues. Claire also mentions that this is a good workout for people rehabilitating from an injury. So, why am I doing this workout? There are several reasons. I like to use lower key workouts on my recovery day–usually as a warm up before doing some yoga/flexibility/mobility work and the other reason is to have a nice collection of these types of workouts on hand for bad feet days. I have 12 screws and 2 plates in each of my heels that usually do not give me any trouble but I have days when I am on my feet a lot more than usual and the next day I am hobbled. Something gentle on my feet is exactly what I need on days like that. I like to workout for an hour every morning and there just aren’t a lot of long workouts that fit my needs, but I can easily pair several of these low key workouts together for a longer workout. In fact, SanFran Fitness has 2 more of these lower key workouts I plan to do and review next week. I was on my feet a lot yesterday so they were a bit cramped this morning when I got on the rebounder. I have found that when my feet are causing me issues, standing cardio and lower body workouts are very awkward until my feet get warmed up, which can take as long as 10 minutes (on really bad days even longer). Rebounder workouts are easier on my feet as a rule but even some of the more intense rebounder workouts I do cause me issues on a bad foot day. But workouts like these are perfect. As I mentioned, my feet were a bit cranky this morning–but nothing major–and the gentle health bounces and easy rebounder moves done in this workout warmed them up so that they felt 100% by the time we were 10 minutes (or even less) into this workout.

This is a very low key, low intensity cardio workout done on the rebounder and it is perfect for someone new to rebounding. Claire uses the stability bar for everything but you obviously don’t have to if you do not need it. I did not need it so I did everything sans stability bar. By the end of the workout I was perspiring. The intensity does increase through the course of the workout but it never gets intense. It was very feel good. Claire did a lot of different foot and arm movements to keep things interesting. There aren’t a lot of long YouTube rebounder stretch workouts available but there are a few. So if you are using this like I did (recovery day workout) then I recommend following this up with a flexibility workout such as ReboundFit Relaxation & Stretching, or AngieFitnessTV‘s Trampoline Extreme Flexibility & Stretch. If you are subscribed to Bellicon Home like I am, they also have quite a few flexibility and yoga routines to choose from.

Low Impact Beginners Bounce Fit Workout with Stability Bar is 29:45 minutes; 30 second intro, there is no apparent warm up but since this is so low intensity a warm up is not needed. The workout ends with a 45 second lower body stretch. Claire holds the stability bar throughout the workout.
