Half Fold ReboundAir RebounderMy favorite form of aerobic exercise right now is rebounding, which I discovered after watching a video by Albert E. Carter on the subject of The Healthy Cell Concept. Rebounding is done on a mini trampoline or “rebounder” and as part of the Healthy Cell Concept, it assists you in keeping your immune system healthy. Since it is so important to keep your immune system healthy and I’m always looking for new ways to exercise, I thought I would give it a try.

I purchased a Half Fold ReboundAir and I am really glad I did. When it arrived, all I had to do was take it out of the box and start exercising. I set it in front of the TV and started jumping. It was easy, non impact and after 1/2 hour, I felt like I had a great workout without getting out of breath.

One of the best things about it is its versatility. You can run, jog, jump, kick and bounce on it, all in the comfort of your own home. It is easy on your joints as you are not exercising on a hard surface. You can even add hand weights to help you burn more calories and get an upper body workout at the same time.

If you are contemplating purchasing a treadmill, or have a treadmill but don’t care for it, you may want to consider a ReboundAir.

There are many different rebounders available but I would suggest a ReboundAir because it is made of quality materials and has a lifetime all parts warranty. There are not too many pieces of exercise equipment that have that offer.

I can honestly say that of all the aerobics I have done over the years, this is by far working the best for me.

10 Minute Solutions Pilates on the Ball

I recently purchased a stability ball and a couple of exercise videos to go along with it. The first video I tried is 10 Minute Solutions Pilates on the Ball. Wow, what a good workout for me. I have been doing pilates for a couple of years now and the stability ball adds a good level of intensity to the workout. If you have never worked out with a stability ball, you should try it. It is pretty challenging to keep the ball steady when you are working out on it.

The video contains 5 ten-minute sections that focus on different parts of your body. There is a section just for abs, one for the lower body, one for the upper body, one that combines exercises that work all of your body, and the final one is a stretch. One thing that is great about all of the 10 Minute Solution videos is you can mix and match the sections to focus on the areas you want, or if you only have a few minutes to get a workout in, you can choose just one or two sections.

One suggestion I would make to anyone purchasing a stability or fitness ball is make sure you buy the right size for your body. I didn’t do any research before buying and I didn’t realize there are different sized balls for different sized people. I am 5’2″ and the medium sized ball fits me alright. I would say if you are any taller, you may want to consider a larger ball.
