A Tribute to Linda Brooks: Rebounding for Better Health Review

Linda BrooksI was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of rebounding superstar Linda Brooks in May of 2014.  Linda was tireless in spreading the word about the benefits of rebounding exercise; a fitness strategy that has had a huge impact on my life and my health!

When I first heard the term “reboundologist”, it brought on a fit of giggles.  We seem to have “ologists” for everything.  But there really is such an animal, and Linda Brooks was a certified reboundologist.

Not only did Linda take the exercise of rebounding seriously, incorporating it into her own life and teaching her students, she became a passionate advocate and writer about how rebounding can have a positive affect on all kinds of health issues.  She wrote on everything from cancer, to incontinence to, optical health to the lympathic system–all areas that rebounding can help.

Needak Rebounders offer a life-changing exercise routine right down to the cellular level!

I had an illuminating experience about a month ago. My massage therapist, who I’ve known for almost 15  years commented on how strong I had gotten–remember, she’s known me for 15 years. She kept remarking on my amazing core strength.  I was surprised by the number of statements she made about this, and when she asked me what I was doing differently, I had to think for a minute.

“Oh yeah, I’ve been rebounding on a soft-bounce rebounder–2 minutes at a time, five or six times a day,” I told her.

“Well, whatever you’re doing, it’s having an amazing impact on your core strength,” she responded.

I have to tell you that I was thrilled by her assessment. If 10 minutes a day (remember, 2 minutes X 5 times) could make such an impression, this was definitely a fitness plan to continue with.

I shared this story over lunch with a friend of mine who is an aerobic instructor as well as a boot camp instructor.  She was intrigued.  She told me she has started to incorporate jumping into many of her routines, and has noticed a difference in her strength as well.  This is a gorgeous woman who is already built like professional body builder;  I was fascinated with how simple jumping magnified her strength.

Linda Brooks and her techniques brought me from a place of being quite weak in my core, to having noticeable strength.  I have to say I’m thankful for her instructive wisdom, and the simplicity of her rebounding processes that clearly enhanced my health.

Just got my first rebounder and watched Linda’s instructional DVD on all levels for proper rebounding. She looked so healthy back then in 2007. What caused her to pass?

    Jay, I’m so glad you received your rebounder–I use mine almost everyday and sometimes a few times a day. I’m not certain what caused Linda’s passing. I was surprised when I stumble upon her obituary. Nevertheless, she leaves a great legacy that we can all aspire to. Happy bouncing.
