Disc has been checked and plays perfectly. Stretch and flex like never before with yor Urban Rebounder. Compilation 5 includes Stretch Bound - full body stretch workout, done entirely on the rebounder, and Yoga Bound - a combination of yoga and rebounding postures, using the rebounder as a prop to aid in balance and coordination. ; JB Berns, the creator of The Urban Rebounding Program, has taken his many years as a fitness expert and his passion for life and created an exercise that doesn't feel like exercise at all. "It's a fun way to work out and it is much easier on your body than most other exercises," says JB. Do you remember what exercise was like when you were a child? Hard to remember isn't it? That's because you didn't think of it as exercise. JB Berns has taken that feeling and made it the philosophy behind the Urban Rebounding workout. This unique exercise program works with gravity and not against it, toning and strengthening the body in the process. Urban Rebounding is a kid's exercise for adults of all ages!
