Release your inner child and get fit at the same time, simply by jumping on a trampoline. NASA believes that "rebound exercise is the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man". Trampolining is a low-impact workout that tones muscles, improves coordination and agility, and is low impact. And because it's so much fun, endorphins are released, reducing stress. Easiest exercise ever! Cannington, bounceinc.com.au.
