Please Note: Some workouts within this programme contain music with explicit language and lyrical content. Parental guidance is advised.
Although it does have a beginner level, BEFORE choosing to do the bounti GLO Programme, we strongly suggest that you have a foundational level of rebounding fitness already established. For this reason, we recommend that you complete either the bounti Foundation Programme or the bounti Beginner’s Programme prior to doing the bounti GLO Programme.

How is the bounti GLO Programme Structured?
There are 10 workouts, with each workout having a beginner, intermediate and advanced variation, which gives you a total of 30 workouts in the entire programme. You can either purchase all of the 10 workouts at a beginner level, at an intermediate level, or at an advanced level; OR you can purchase all 30 workouts, at all 3 fitness levels, bundled together.
We recommend that you start at the beginner level, progress to the intermediate level and then finish with the advanced, doing all 10 beginner workout variations first, all 10 of the intermediate ones next, and then all the advanced variations last.
However, (if you purchase the bundle of all 30 workouts), you can alternatively do all 3 fitness level variations of one workout, and then progress to the next 3 levels of the following workout (in other words, doing workout 1 at a beginner, intermediate and advanced level, before moving on to doing workout 2 at a beginner, intermediate and advanced level, and so on).
- The beginner workouts are approximately 20 minutes long, with the moves being relatively basic and the sequences being easy to follow.
- The intermediate workouts are approximately 30 minutes long, with the bounces and exercises building on the learnings of the beginner level. The tracks are the same, with a few more added that include more difficult routines and moves.
- The advanced workouts are 45 minutes long. These sessions will make you fitter and stronger, with the bounces and exercises building on even further from the learnings of the previous levels. If you reach this level, and mange to execute all the bounces and exercises with good form, in time to the music, there’s no doubt that you will have progressed significantly in your strength and fitness!
What to expect from each of the 10 workouts:
- Workouts 1 to 3 (“Basic Workouts”) are full-body sessions, with a contemporary sound track.
- In workouts 4 to 6 (“Core Workouts”), a lot of attention is given to building core strength. The music tracks take you back to the 70s and 80s, so they bring should back a lot of fond memories and nostalgia!
- Workouts 7 to 9 (“Cardio Plus Workouts”) focus on building cardio fitness. These workouts will make you sweat, with the music being fast-paced and more modern.
- Workout 10 (“bounti Favourites”) includes all of Silvia’s favourite moves and songs!

What sets bounti GLO apart from other programmes?
bounti GLO offers a unique approach to rebounding fitness, with several distinguishing features…
- The workouts incorporate slower and smoother movements to give you more control.
- Rebounding’s low-impact nature naturally makes it kind and forgiving on the body, with less stress and strain on the joints, and a lowered injury risk. With this being said, the workouts in bounti GLO include bounces that are even softer than typical rebounding, reducing any jerky movements, making it even gentler on the joints.
- The routines within GLO are designed to be repetitive, which assists in overcoming memory challenges, and allows for easier learning and enjoyment.
- The moves are less complicated, ensuring a seamless and accessible workout for everyone!
- bounti GLO gives you options allowing you to choose between different levels of difficulty and intensity that suit your preferences and capabilities.
What to Expect from bounti GLO…
Despite the slower pace, a bounti GLO workout remains intense, resulting in a high calorie burn, depending on how much you want to exert yourself. Given that muscle loss accelerates after menopause, bounti GLO emphasises muscle-building exercises, which not only aids in preserving muscle mass, but also helps to maintain a higher metabolism.
In each workout, there is a warm-up segment and a cool-down segment, which focuses on specific stretches to alleviate stiffness and release tension. Silvia has invested considerable effort into curating a collection of appropriate tracks, with bouncing to the beat of the music being a central component of the programme.
The soundtrack includes some awesome golden oldies, of course! In Silvia’s words, “bounti GLO aims to bring joy and happiness into our lives, so that we don't become grumpy old people as we age”.
The sessions are short (with the longest advanced sessions being 45 minutes in duration), yet are very effective! We are past the stage where we want to exercise for hours because we want to be super fit and super lean. We have things to do, places to go, and need to use our time wisely! bounti GLO gives you full, comprehensive workouts, in convenient, time-efficient sessions.
When you participate in the GLO sessions, you can expect a full-body cardio and strength workout that targets your core, legs, arms and abs and cardio, with the occasional use of weights and accessories. You will not only burn calories; you will build strength and get fitter! The routines help to develop and maintain muscle mass, keeping our metabolism at an optimal level. This is especially crucial as you age to stay healthy and mobile, and thereby enjoy a high-quality of life well into your older years.

What do I wear?
Ladies, as we age, our bodies change; our waists get thicker, our bums get saggy, our boobs stretch, we get too hot… bounti GLO acknowledges the natural changes our bodies go through, and understands that suitable clothing becomes harder to find.
This is why bounti GLO encourages wearing comfortable clothes, and prioritises physical comfort and freedom of movement over societal expectations. If long leggings may make you feel too hot and restricted, wear shorts and a sports bra, if that’s what it takes to make you feel comfortable!
