Tiverton man stays healthy through daily bouncing
12:47pm Thursday 2nd August 2012 in Tiverton
MID Devon employees may be facing the prospect of having to work into their 70s but one company director from Bickleigh near Tiverton says he keeps going by bouncing each day.
Chris Prentis, 71, managing director of Super Tramp in Willand, uses his rebounder for 20 minutes every day - and has done so for more than 15 years - to keep in shape.
He said: “There are many health benefits in using a high quality rebounder to get maximum rewards and to ensure the workout is 'low impact' and kind on joints.
“The exercise is enjoyable and fits in around my daily routine, which is the reason I have been bouncing for more than a decade.
“Bouncing has helped me to keep up my job long after retirement age. The exercise is perfect for older individuals who want to keep active but don't want to wear out their joints.”
