hi, i would just like to know how effective Rebounding is, in terms of improving your fitness? ive been rebounding for 30 minutes every day now for the last few weeks and am enjoying it. unlike walking or running, time seems to just fly by whilst im on the rebounder, whereas it seems to go so slow whilst walking/running! But im wondering how good does rebounding compare to other exercises in terms of health and fitness? Could i just use Rebounding as an only form of exercise, for 30-60 minutes daily and improve my fitness?

There are a few threads here on the subject. You might wish to search them.
Rebounding is great exercise. Just know there are vids on using the rebounder for doing yoga and various other movements. To maintain fitness one needs to remain flexible. People get old when they don't. Next time you're out, really look at people. Who looks old to you and why? Is it because they are rigid, bent over? If so, what can YOU do to maintain flexibility? IS rebounding enough?

The best form of exercise is the exercise that you love and that you can stick to.

The one thing I know about rebounding is....it's great for your lymphatic system.
It's FUN! When I was back in the States, I had a rebounder and would take work breaks (I work from home) for a few minutes on the rebounder. Loved doing that.
But I never felt like it was "as much" exercise/exhaustion as when I attended cardio boot camp or kickboxing classes, or running. It felt about the same as a regular-sort of fast walk. Which is still great exercise and benefits your body!
