20 Mins Beginners Low Impact Bounce Fit Circuit is a lower intensity rebounder workout from SanFran Fitness. This is a cardio workout though some of the moves near the end might make your legs start to burn. There are no complicated exercises in this workout but Claire does tell you how to make some of the exercises more challenging. I’m not a beginner, so I took those suggestions and got a nice little cardio workout. I also added bounces to pretty much every move, including the recoveries on the rebounder. Today is my rest/recovery day, so I used this workout as a warm up before doing some yoga. It worked very nicely for that purpose.
This workout is done interval fashion: 40 seconds of work followed by 20 seconds of active recovery. The active recovery is a step tap side to side on the rebounder except for when you are doing exercises in which you are partially on the floor and partially on the rebounder. In those instances the recovery is marching in place on the floor. There is a timer in the lower right hand side of the screen, counting down your intervals. During the recovery the next move is previewed in a little video in the upper left hand corner of the screen.
