Exercise Success for People Over 50: Reports of Improved Fitness, Circulation and Balance

The combination of a gentle bounce, stretching and strength training proves to be most effective in addressing senior health concerns. Dr. James Rota has developed a unique exercise for seniors, which has seen successful results in improving circulation, bone density, balance, weight loss, and overall fitness.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 90 percent of American adults are so sedentary they could almost be reclassified as statues. It is important that people over age 50 find a way to address bone loss, circulation, balance issues, constipation, weight loss and muscle atrophy. Seniors have been reporting improvement in these conditions with a new exercise called Bouncercise.

After years of development, Dr. James Rota, age 75, describes Bouncercise as a gentle bounce combined with a suspended stabilization system which enables effective stretching, resistance training, and aerobic workout. “This exercise is fun and easy to do, and is very efficient. Bouncercise is a realistic solution to exercise apathy.”

Dr. Rota also developed the Freedom Spring System to facilitate the Bouncercise movement. It consists of a high quality rebounder or mini trampoline, along with a resistance and stabilization system that attaches to a wall or doorway. While performing a gentle bounce, seniors hold onto the suspended bar or resistance cords.

According to the National Safety Council, falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths in older adults. Regarding her experience with Bouncercise, Elinor Kruzic, age 84, reported, “I had a problem with my inner ear and lost my balance completely. This has helped me in two months to regain my balance. I can walk now. I don’t fall down.”

Norma Wenderoth, age 72, who has a left-side paralysis due to a stroke says, “I couldn’t do anything to get an aerobic workout. I can’t swim fast enough, I can’t walk fast enough. On the Freedom Spring, I get 20 minutes of aerobics every day.”

According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 1 in every 2 women over the age of 50 are at risk for an osteoporosis-related fracture. No matter what your age, strength exercises will increase bone density, which reduces the likelihood of fractures.

Wayne L. Westcott, Ph.D. (fitness research director at the South Shore YMCA, and author of 20 fitness books) says, “Research clearly confirms the importance of resistance training for effectively reversing the muscle loss, metabolic slowdown, and strength decrement associated with the aging process.” He further states that “strength training can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, colon cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, low back pain and depression.”

With all the research available, it is clear that exercise addresses a host of physical conditions that are daily concerns of the changing body of the mature adult. “The main components of physical fitness are cardiorespiratory workout, muscle strength and endurance, and flexibility. Bouncercise creates a synergistic effect of all them working together simultaneously,” says Dr. Rota.

Dr. Rota’s own journey includes a compelling story of how he survived industrial levels of mercury in his body to recovering from a nearly severed leg. “I originally developed Bouncercise to detoxify my body, but it also was decisively instrumental in successfully rehabilitating my severely broken leg.” In fact, Dr. Rota, age 75, made such a thriving recovery, that he was able to dance with Edyta Sliwinska from Dancing with the Stars. He easily kept up with the 27 year old professional dancer, as can be seen in Dr. Rota’s channel on

Dr. Rota holds Bouncercise classes at his office in Los Angeles. In addition to Bouncercise training, the class also includes discussions on detoxification, nutrition, and weight management. For more information about Bouncercise classes, visit

With life being so busy, using time efficiently is an important factor in making choices for health and everyday needs. Bouncercise combines all the components of fitness and brings the well-documented benefits of the gentle bounce to people of all abilities, along with effective results.
