Running has always been one of the most effective ways to lose weight quickly and maintain a healthy physique. However, as running is a high-impact activity, placing great amounts of stress on muscles, ligaments and joints. It can eventually lead to knee and hip problems. Running on a trampoline is one weight-loss option as it burns calories and tones muscles without causing stress to the joints. Studies conducted by NASA show running on a trampoline, also known as rebounding, to be up to 68 per cent more effective than jogging.
