Posted on July 12, 2020 by John Harris

Exercise is good for our mental and physical health but it doesn’t have to be strenuous or miserable. While some people enjoy going to the gym to work out or going for runs, not everyone likes doing it. This doesn’t mean that just because you can’t do either of these that you shouldn’t find alternative ways to work out. Sometimes, you could get bored with exercising in the same environment for long and need a change.

There are several ways in which you can exercise without even realizing that you are exercising. Working out doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to lift weights or anything like that. The most important thing is that you move in a way that engages your muscles and joints. One amazing alternative is rebounding – all you need to get started is a Leaps and Rebounds mini fitness trampoline.

By the end of the season, Griffin had rushed for 867 yards.
