With rapid changes to the fitness world over the last few years, in-home workouts have begun to provide American’s with the opportunity to take control of their health in new ways. City dwellers have especially embraced working out at home, with 77% of those who exercise completing a workout at least 3 times a week.
Instead of spending money on a monthly fee to work out, people are instead using those funds to purchase the equipment they will use weekly, if not daily. Weights, yoga mats, and rebounders are just a few of the items you’ll find in a home gym. Choosing a rebounder that will fit your budget and your workout space won’t take much of your time.
Continue reading for our quick and easy guide containing 4 things to think about before you purchase rebounders for your home gyms.
1. Choosing A Rebounder: Size Matters
When looking at options for rebounders, the first thing you need to consider is who will be using the equipment. People who are taller or who weigh more may want to look at trampolines with a higher resistance level and longer legs on the rebounder. You want to avoid hitting the floor as you bounce.
Your actual jumping space is going to be less than the size advertised because they add the frame around the bouncing mat into the calculations. If your exercise space is compact, you may need to go with a smaller size of rebounder.
2. Material Quality
From the quality of the frame to the extra rebounder features and accessories that may come with your product, you want to make sure it is going to last. The mat will be made of plastic, canvas, or nylon which all will eventually stretch.
If you can test the product before you buy it will give you a better idea of durability.
3. Your Budget
When comparing rebounder prices, you will find that the equipment can run anywhere from $100-$600. As with a lot of exercise equipment, you tend to get what you pay for.
If you are enjoying working out from home and expect to use a piece of equipment regularly, paying more for a better product is a wise move. You don’t have to choose the most expensive, but especially with rebounders and all the parts involved, you will want to invest a little more.
4. Can it Travel?
For those who exercise at work or take equipment with them on trips, buying foldable rebounders makes sense. Apart from the variety of benefits using a rebounder offers healthwise, the opportunity to mix up your workouts can help with monotony.
Take your rebounder to the park, to your weekend cabin getaway, or even the beach. If you spend a lot of time in motels due to work, having your own rebounder makes getting in a workout doable.
Now that you know choosing a rebounder for your in-home workouts is simple, you don’t have to wait. The harder decision will be deciding who gets to use it first. Pick your favorite rebounder workout and get started today.
