HI Foxy

Your better options are exercises such as stair-climbing and even the cross-trainer to a certain extent and then also, squats, lunges and backward leg extensions for the butt. Yes the rebounder is an effective cardiovascular exercise, but use other options as well. It will help to burn fat.
