Come on guys, we all know how hard it is to get the kids to exercise.

At BounceU, our “Bounceologists” graduated with a BA (“Bounceology” of arts) degree. They’ve concluded that bouncing (the uncontrollable urge to jump up and down until your cheeks turn red and you are totally exhausted), is one of the many ways to achieve this. “Get out of the heat and into the fun!”
