So, you’re ready to start your rebounding journey… But where? How? What’s the best path forwards? 

We have such a large variety of bounti rebounding programmes available. It’s completely understandable if you’re feeling overwhelmed or confused with where to begin.

Starting a workout programme that is way too difficult from the get-go, isn’t enjoyable for anyone. Starting from a manageable, but still reasonably challenging level, means that you’re more likely to stick to it – and your body will thank you for it!

Let’s break down your progressive bounti journey step-by-step… Here’s the best route to take on your way to bouncing towards a better, healthier, happier you!

  1. The bounti Foundation Programme

Introducing, the 4-week bounti Foundation Programme! This programme is ideal for anyone who’s looking to start from the absolute grassroots of rebounding. 

We recommended this programme for you if you:

  • Are a bit older
  • Have an autoimmune disease
  • Are recovering from a pregnancy
  • Are recovering from an injury or illness
  • Are very unfit
  • Have never rebounded before

The workouts include the use of an optional support bar or T-bar, however you can complete this programme without one if you feel strong enough. You don’t need much – only your rebounder, light dumbbells (0.5 kg - 1 kg), a small loop band, a soft ball and a great mindset. 

WATCH: My video explanation of the bounti Foundation Programme

Over the 4 weeks, you will start with a 2 minute workout that will slowly progress to 20 minutes in the 4th week. My guidance during the sessions is really supportive and ensures that you are slowly and carefully immersed into the sensations of rebounding.

The Foundation Programme has an intro video at the beginning of each week telling you what to expect, the basics of rebounding, safety guides, and tips and tricks.

You will be following me, not the crazy beats of a fast-paced song. The focus with this programme is on coordination, balance, technique, orientation, form and safety. There isn’t a huge emphasis on too wide a range of movement or hectic music.

I want you to slowly, and consistently, grow your rebounding confidence over the 4 weeks. It’s all about building a solid foundation when it comes to rebounding – with a huge focus on technique. This programme takes you right from the absolute basics of, not just rebounding, but fitness as a whole. 

This programme is also amazing if you want to utilise rebounding strictly from a wellness aspect rather than a fitness or strength aspect. The basic exercises in this programme are excellent in circulating your lymph and releasing toxins from the body.

Hopefully, this programme provides you with the right push you need to simply get on a rebounder and start somewhere. If you’re looking to start your journey with bounti from grassroots to pro, this programme is the perfect precursor to our Beginner's Programme.

  1.  The bounti Beginner’s Programme

If you’re still new to rebounding and looking for a step-by-step guide to get you started, my bounti Beginner's Programme 2.0 is an effective 8-week rebounding course, designed to take you from newbie to expert in no time!

Our Beginner’s Programme 2.0 is actually the second version of this programme, where we’ve upped the quality and enhanced the experience it presents to you. Although the key principles, focus and purpose of the programme remain the same, its 2.0 version includes an improved look and feel, as well as a proper sound, lighting and tech set-up!

In this new-and-improved version of the programme, my own level of rebounding skill and proficiency have improved significantly! Not only are you getting a better experience with this 2.0 programme itself, you’re also being taught and guided through a better quality of rebounding, learning the latest, most applicable techniques and moves. Please note that the first, 1.0 version of this programme is no longer available.

If you don’t know how to utilise your rebounder to get the most out of it, then this is the programme for you. Allow me to teach you how to use your rebounder to exercise properly, and reap its maximum benefits.

Whether you’ve had a rebounder for ages, you’ve just bought a rebounder, you’re a complete fitness newbie or you’re super fit, but completely new to the rebounding modality specifically – we’ve got you.

This programme includes:

  • An introductory welcome video on what to expect from the entire programme as a whole
  • Introductory videos of what to expect during each week
  • Safety guidance, including advice on what to wear, bouncing with the correct footwear, and even the after-effects of rebounding!
  • Technique videos
  • An equipment breakdown
  • Guidance as to what you should do after completing the programme

This is so that you’re as safe, and educated as possible. From there, I teach you all the basics, from how to stand on your rebounder correctly, all the way to the techniques of different moves. You’ll only need some basic equipment, such as:

  • Light dumbbells (0.5, 1 or 1.5kgs)
  • Mini Pilates Ball
  • Set of Mini Loop Resistance Bands
  • Long Resistance Band
  • Exercise mat
  • Fabric Booty Band
  • Weighted Bar (in a weight of your choice, but 2-3kgs recommended for beginners)
  • Adjustable Ankle Weights

My goal with this programme is to get you started slowly, and build your rebounding fitness in a way that is gradual and enjoyable!

The 8-week programme is broken up into 56 at-home rebounding sessions, with 1 session per day for 7 days a week, for 8 weeks. Week 1 starts with 10 minutes each day, working up to week 8, which includes 7 workouts at 60 minutes each. By the end of week 8, you should be able to do a full hour of rebounding.

I can guarantee that, if you do this programme properly, you’ll see so many improvements in your body, health, energy and mental wellbeing. You will end as a completely new, happy and healthy human being!

WATCH: A Sneak Peek into Beginner's 2.0

Compared to our 4-week bounti Foundation Programme, the Beginner’s Programme takes everything up to a whole, new level. Where the Beginner’s Programme takes you on an 8-week journey, from 10 to 60 minutes of bouncing, the Foundation Programme takes you on a 4-week journey, from 2 to 20 minutes of rebounding. This Beginner’s Programme is a natural step up, only after you are totally comfortable with our bounti Foundation Programme, and find it easy enough to take your rebounding up a notch!

Please also be mindful of the fact that while the Foundation Programme was shot with the use of an optional Support Bar to hold onto while you need the extra stability, this Beginner’s Programme is only suitable once you have reached a level of bouncing where you are comfortable without this Support Bar. If you find this Beginner’s Programme too difficult, please consider the bounti Foundation Programme instead.

     3.  The bounti LEVEL UP Programme

    Finally, you’ve reached the big leagues! Take your rebounding up an even higher notch with my incredible bounti LEVEL UP Rebounding Programme.

    This programme was a tough one to put together… It took me 6 months to shoot! I really gave it my all to make sure that it’s constantly challenging you, and switching it up to keep your body guessing.

    Our bodies are masters at adaptation, so doing too much of the same won’t continue bringing you the results you want. 

    bounti LEVEL UP:

    • Constantly challenges you
    • Helps you see consistent results and progress
    • Will build and boost your metabolism (due to increased lean muscle tissue)

    What's included in bounti LEVEL UP?

    • Day 1 : A balanced, 50-minute lower-body workout, focussing on the detail of the legs.
    • Day 2 : Flow workout, including basic moves done in a sequence, broken up into 3 parts first done with the right side of your body, then 3 parts done on your left, and eventually both sides of the body combined. Enjoy stamina at its best with this 45-minute workout!
    • Day 3 : A balanced, 50-minute upper-body workout, focussing on the detail of the arms.
    • Day 4 : A 60-minute, full-body workout that includes a combination of legs, flow, arms and incorporates the core.

    Your purchase gives you 16 weeks of access to this dynamic, 8-week Programme.

    Although LEVEL UP was a tough one, seeing the final product makes all of my hard work, not to mention my team’s elbow grease, so worth it. Seeing the changes that my body went through while shooting LEVEL UP was also incredible – I definitely got a lot fitter, leaner and stronger while shooting this programme! I’m definitely really proud of this one.

    Push yourself, step it up and make the effort to make it count. Remember, progress begins outside of your comfort zone, so get ready to level up with bounti LEVEL UP!
