Why rebounding?

Rebounding is more than just a workout. It offers an incredible health boost for the whole system. It supports the body’s natural detox processes, boosts circulation (therefore reducing cellulite), builds a strong core and tones incredibly.

The workouts of each class vary to prevent boredom. Each one is designed to help you build strength, burn fat and calories, and detox –  all while having fun. You can't help but smile every time you bounce!

Lisa Raleigh – bounti founder

My rebounding journey

I've been an exercise specialist for around 20 years and I love what I do. Since becoming a mom, I discovered the true power of rebounding – an exercise modality I'm truly passionate about. Rebounding has changed my life in so many ways. It’s made me fitter, stronger, healthier and happier.

Although I’ve always used a rebounder as part of my workouts, it was only after having my daughter, Bella, that I discovered what a miracle exercise it truly is – I began to bounce most days of the week. Just a few minutes per day helped me to regain strength in my core and pelvic floor. I lost my baby weight with minimal effort, and worked muscles I didn’t even know I had!

I felt healthier and more energised than I had in years (even in the throes of sleep deprivation with a new baby). In all of my years of experience as a wellness expert, I can honestly say that rebounding offers one of the most effective, full-body workouts, because it works every single cell and muscle in your body. 

Rebounding continues to inspire me in more ways than one, which is why I started to develop my own series of safe, fun and challenging rebounding workouts. I used to be such an avid runner – but I also used to be injured, inflamed or sore at the very least, as a result. Rebounding is the only exercise that I can do once a day, sometimes more, that doesn’t hurt my body. It truly is the exercise that heals, not harms. 

The most rewarding aspect of what I do is that it doesn’t only benefit me. Every day, I get to hear the most amazing testimonials about how rebounding has changed the lives of so many other people out there. Join the bounti community, and get motivated with great music, exciting workouts and excellent results!

My rebounding classes

As the founder of South Africa’s leading premium rebounding brand, I would host just about any kind of bounti class. However, my standard online portfolio is a 60-minute, advanced rebounding class. I combine strength, Tabata, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), core and flexibility work – all in a way that brings some of my character to the rebounder. With my background in personal training, I like to think of my classes as personal training on a rebounder.

When I formulate a rebounding class, I’m driven by results, creative choreography, exciting playlists and equipment (sometimes including the T-bar to really ramp things up) that deliver the purest version of a bounti class. I would say that my classes are uplifting, progressive and full of great energy!

I also offer bounti HIIT classes, which are for those at a more advanced level of fitness. HIIT training includes cycles of high-intensity work and recovery. It’s long been a gym favourite due to its interactive and challenging nature. It can be hard on the joints and jarring to the body, but that’s where bounti comes to save the day! 

The main benefit of adding a rebounder to HIIT is, while the workout is at a super high-intensity – you can reach peak heart rate numbers – it's also incredibly low-impact. All of the tension and strain on your joints is absorbed by the mat of the rebounder. That means you can really push yourself, while still protecting and preserving your body’s mobility.

These high-intensity classes include a vigorous and high-energy 36-minute session where we train hard and fast. These rebounding classes offer all the benefits of HIIT training, minus the associated injury risk!

Rebounding has truly changed my life and my health holistically, and I love witnessing the same in other people. Join me, and start bouncing to reap the same benefits.

Steph

Steph’s rebounding journey

I’ve always had such a passion for ballet and movement – I decided that the happy medium between the two for me is Pilates. I was first introduced to rebounding when a friend of mine invited me to one of Lisa’s classes. Initially, I was a bit sceptical about the idea of bouncing, but I’m quite an active person so I thought “why not?” – and wow!

Up until that point I considered myself quite fit, but rebounding is just something else. It’s so much more intense than other forms of training, and I absolutely loved it. After a while of doing Lisa’s FOMO classes from home, I realised that I actually wanted to be an instructor and the rest is history!

My favourite thing about rebounding is definitely the mindfulness aspect of it. While you’re training, you find yourself so focused on what you’re doing, and so ‘in the zone’, that you’re able to be truly mindful and fully present in the moment, which is amazing for your mental health! It’s such an all-encompassing workout modality that makes exercise fun and brings real, sustainable results, no matter your level of fitness.

Steph’s classes

My bounti Sculpt classes have more of a Pilates feel to them, with a sprinkle of some barre principles and movements in each session. Obviously, we still have the cardio and strength elements, but I love to bring in the elements of control, balance, mobility, core work and alignment – I really value focusing on good technique.

My classes are between 55 and 60 minutes long, and vary from intermediate to advanced levels. I incorporate movements both on and off the rebounder to create a more dynamic session. Controlled movements are also used a lot to effectively activate and recruit a variety of muscles, focusing on lengthening and toning. 

My classes will definitely ensure building a level of muscle endurance and stability, working to strengthen and challenge your entire body. I also like to incorporate some equipment – hand weights, ankle and wrist weights, the mini Pilates ball, resistance bands and the weighted bar – and body weight moves to level up the intensity of the strength exercises. Some new and exciting equipment will be included soon to take these workouts to the next level!

Music selection is definitely my favourite part of planning a class, and generally determines each session’s look and feel. My song choice is usually upbeat and modern, with some club classics and new releases, but you’ll also find snippets of golden oldies not heard in ages. There’s always something for everyone!

I plan each class meticulously to ensure that you always feel challenged and can expect something new. Join me for a high-energy session that will definitely leave you feeling worked out!

Lisa G.

Lisa G.’s rebounding journey

I’ve been close friends with Lisa Raleigh for years. When I met her a long while ago, I landed up buying a Spring rebounder. When I started rebounding, it slowly started to change my way of being. 

I’ve been rebounding for a while, but it was during the first heavy lockdown that I really started getting into it. Every day, without fail, I was up and online, bouncing with Lisa. I really started to feel a shift, not only in my strength, fitness and core, but in my mind as well. As someone with two left feet, I must say that rebounding has also really improved my coordination! 

Rebounding is a modality that just makes me so happy and allows me to express myself – talk about an endorphin overload! My favourite part about it is that it’s low impact, meaning that it reduces injury risk and joint and muscle pain. From my experience, it’s the best form of training for a full-body workout AND detox. The way rebounding has made me feel, inspired me so much that I decided to totally step out of my comfort zone and become a bounti instructor. I’m so glad that I did, because I haven’t looked back since!

Lisa G.’s classes

Before rebounding, my workout routine focused a lot on strength, personal training and HIIT, so that’s what my bounti classes bring to the table. My classes are around 50 minutes long for those at an intermediate level of rebounding fitness. They consist of a variety of different strength training and toning exercises, focusing on the conscious and mindful movement of the body. I tend to focus a lot on breathing and targeting each muscle group. My sessions are where strength, endurance and hard work meet mindfulness and spirituality.

Alongside Lisa R, I also offer bounti HIIT classes, which are for those at a more advanced level of fitness. HIIT training includes cycles of high-intensity work and recovery. It’s long been a gym favourite due to its interactive and challenging nature. It can be hard on the joints and jarring to the body, but that’s where bounti comes to save the day!

The main benefit of adding a rebounder to HIIT is, while the workout is at a super high-intensity – you can reach peak heart rate numbers – it's also incredibly low-impact. All of the tension and strain on your joints is absorbed by the mat of the rebounder. That means you can really push yourself, while still protecting and preserving your body’s mobility.

These high-intensity classes include a vigorous and high-energy 36-minute session where we train hard and fast. These rebounding classes offer all the benefits of HIIT training, minus the associated injury risk. 

I am very conscious about moving the body in connection with the mind. Join me in creating a little magic with each bounti class!

Tertia D.

Tertia D.’s rebounding journey

I love movement and always have. I’ve been active since I was 3-years-old in a community ballet class in Eldorado Park, and was also very sporty at school. I studied dance, and it’s been my entire career since then. I was a traveling dancer for around 8 years, and I’m constantly inspired by the different cultures and music I was exposed to throughout that time.

While I was studying, I would exercise with a personal trainer, because – even though my primary passion is dance – I’ve always been extremely passionate about fitness as well. 

Before rebounding, I thought I had to live at the gym in order to maintain my physique and manage my weight. With rebounding, I’m able to keep fit and supple, while staying injury-free. The best part? I can eat whatever I want without feeling like I’m losing my progress!

My favourite thing about rebounding is that it’s low impact. As a dancer, I’ve always valued taking care of my body and, with rebounding, I can train as often and as hard as I want without the wear and tear.

What drew me to the bounti brand was the fact that we share the common vision of helping others by getting them to move! I believe that rebounding is the best modality to get anyone up and active.

Tertia D.’s classes

My bounti Beat & Burn classes are where rebounding, fitness and dance collide in a fun, high-energy and rhythmical way. For intermediate to advanced rebounders, my 60 minute classes are all about the music, with reps and sets all done to the tempo and beat. Whether you’re a musical theatre babe or a hardcore hip-hopper, I’ve got the right playlist for you!

These classes focus on musicality and coordination, while still providing a well-rounded workout that includes all the classic elements of rebounding, like balance, strength and toning. I also like to include 2 to 3 songs of choreographed routines, so you’ll definitely end my sessions having learned a few new moves.

For all my busy bees out there, I also offer bounti Swift classes. These classes are higher intensity, full-body workouts that are condensed into 30 to 35 minute sessions for busy people who need a full-body workout, but don’t have the time to participate in an hour-long class.

These classes are at an intermediate to advanced level, and include all the fundamental elements of a good rebounding workout in a way that is time-efficient and convenient. So, if you’re a busy mom or a workaholic looking to squeeze in some healthy habits, bounti Swift is for you!

Lastly, for the absolute beginners, I offer B2B (Back 2 Basics) classes. These are for the rebounding and exercise newbies. If you’ve never bounced on a rebounder, B2B is the perfect introduction! The pace of these classes is a lot slower, as they focus on mastering the absolute basics of rebounding. The movements, transitions and coordination is very simple, with minimal accessories.

These classes involve more explanation, with focus on perfecting the technique of basic exercises (both on and off the rebounder) and core engagement. These slow-paced, easy-to-follow, 25 to 30 minute sessions are perfect for those who are intimidated by a full-length session, and need some extra TLC in getting oriented on the rebounder.

Rulene

Rulene’s rebounding journey

My rebounding journey started with my postnatal weight loss; I discovered the fitness modality after having my second baby. When I first started coming to Lisa’s classes, her approach made rebounding something that was so easy for me to fall in love with. I started seeing so many incredible changes, and thought, “I have to teach this”.

I did my first course in October of 2019 and have been teaching rebounding ever since. I upskilled myself with Lisa’s instructor’s course in March of 2020 and started teaching at Lisa’s studio in February of 2021.

Teaching rebounding is something that I’ve always enjoyed so much – my favourite part is definitely compiling my playlists with funky and edgy music.

Loving rebounding really is a no-brainer. What’s not to love? It ticks all the boxes; from lymph drainage to targeting cellulite. Plus, it’s a full body workout that improves your overall fitness levels AND tones and conditions.

Rulene’s classes

I like to keep my bounti classes light, dynamic and comprehensive. My classes are perfect for those at a beginner level or for those who are simply looking for a lighter workout. If you’re still relatively new to rebounding, and want to improve on mastering the basics and fundamentals, it’s definitely a great place to start. 

Although these sessions are longer and slightly more challenging than the B2B classes, they are still at a beginner level. Within 45 to 60 minutes, we cover all the bases: cardio, toning, strength and stretching. Despite adding some equipment here and there, my sessions mostly just use your own body weight. Come and enjoy some high-energy tunes, as well as some well-deserved, guilt-free ‘me time’.

Alongside Tertia D, I also offer B2B (Back 2 Basics) classes. These are for the rebounding and exercise newbies. If you’ve never bounced on a rebounder, B2B is the perfect introduction! The pace of these classes is a lot slower as they focus on mastering the absolute basics of rebounding. The movements, transitions and coordination is very simple, with minimal accessories.

These classes involve more explanation, with focus on perfecting the technique of basic exercises (both on and off the rebounder) and core engagement. These slower-paced, easy-to-follow, 25 to 30 minute sessions are perfect for those who are intimidated by a full-length session, and need some extra TLC in getting oriented on the rebounder.

My beginners classes are the perfect segway for rebounding newbies after the B2B classes have made them comfortable enough to participate in a full-length session.

Cait

Cait’s rebounding journey

I’m a trained actress, singer and dancer with much experience working in musical theatre and the entertainment industry.

To stay fit, I used to be a runner, but it gave me such sore feet. When I discovered rebounding, it was love at first bounce! Not only did the soreness in my feet go away, but it managed to improve my overall fitness, strength and muscle tone.

I have a fiery passion for teaching children. I believe in spreading my knowledge and expertise to the youth of today – after all, they are the future. So, I joined bounti to expand on the bounti Kids offering.

For me, bounti managed to blend rebounding with my other passions – kids and performing! I’m now a performer, teacher AND the youngest bounti instructor on the Lisa Raleigh team. Besides the fact that it’s so incredible for your health, rebounding is the one exercise modality that is ALWAYS fun and can be tailored to benefit any age, gender, ability and fitness level.

Cait’s classes

I, like Meg, also offer fun-filled bounti Kids classes for children from the ages of 3 to 11 years old. bounti Kids is aligned with your child’s developmental milestones and is thus, separated –  classes for kids 3 to 5 years old are a lot more basic and theme-based, while classes for kids 6 to 11 years old are slightly more mature and advanced, focusing on refining their already developed skills. 

I bring a youthful, trendy and hip air to my bounti classes. I enjoy relating to the youth, as well as teaching and entertaining them. I would describe my classes as fun, energetic and quirky!

These kiddies classes focus on the development of gross fine motor skills, including cognition and language development! They are exciting, creative and incredible for your child’s physical development. 

These classes enable your kids to have fun, while improving their:

  • Laterality
  • Directionality
  • Midline crossing
  • Dynamic and static balance
  • Rhythm, sequencing and timing
  • Strength & core strength
  • Flexibility

Megan

Meg’s rebounding journey

One of my passions, and one of the things I’ve always loved learning more about, is early childhood development. My passion in life has always been kids – I was an au pair for Lisa’s daughter, Bella, while studying and I eventually became a teacher.

My passion for rebounding started when Lisa gifted me a rebounder. I initially fell in love with it by using it to come up with dance routines as part of my ‘me time’. I also saw what it could do for Bella – I believe that physical exercise for kids is so, so important!

Rebounding made it so much easier for me to ensure that Bella was physically active every day, especially on rainy and/or cold days when going outdoors wasn’t the best option. It also improved her balance, coordination and other aspects of her physical development. 

So many kids these days, especially with all the Covid lockdowns, don’t get nearly as much stimulation and physical activity as they should – rebounding is something I believe can solve this problem.

I often think about all the kids out there, especially the ones with special needs or conditions, and how I’d love to use rebounding to brighten their days and help them to stay healthy, happy and active.

Meg’s classes

I offer fun-filled bounti Kids classes for children from the ages of 3 to 11 years old. bounti Kids is aligned with your child’s developmental milestones and is thus, separated –  classes for kids 3 to 5 years old are a lot more basic and theme-based, while classes for kids 6 to 11 years old are slightly more mature and advanced, focusing on refining their already developed skills.

  • Midline crossing
  • Dynamic and static balance
  • Rhythm, sequencing and timing
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Stamina and endurance

Although my main passion is helping kids, I also love having some fun ‘me time’. That’s where my passion for Afro Fusion comes in. For the adults out there, I bring you an amazing class that keeps rebounding sexy with a hint of subtle. Afro Fusion will challenge your alter ego and requires a lot of hip action, so don’t be shy!

Afro Fusion classes are for those at an intermediate level, and cover all the bases. There’s a bit of dancing, some strength, abs for balance and a lot of laughing. Above all, Afro Fusion is tons of fun. This funky, versatile class is so much fun that you’ll forget you’re actually having a workout.
