Not only is this exercise super-fun, it's also a really fantastic workout for your whole body! The mix of jumping and dancing on a trampoline is TONS of FUN and is good for MANY aspects of your body!
Mini-trampolines can also be known as trampettes or rebounders, and this rebounding activity is well-known to improve circulation, increase the capacity of your heart and lungs, and build strength and stamina, boosting your fitness levels all over.
In our classes we use a mix of HIIT and energetic moves to maximise an effective fat burning workout in our main cardio section, and then we also use the pliable surface of the mat for core exercises to improve legs, bums and abs.
If you come to classes regularly you will improve and firm your muscle tone around the legs, thighs, abdomen, hips and arms and will improve your co-ordination, agility, balance and physical strength!
Rebounding and jumping improves weight loss up to 3 times quicker than floor-based aerobic workouts due to the opposing gravity and added g-force, and it’s remarkably gentle on the joints, due to the beneficial effects of gravity. The mat of the mini trampoline is used as a resistance tool.
Jumping for health can be more effective for fitness and weight loss than cycling, running or jogging, with a soft landing for backs, knees and joints, and you can burn some serious calories in our 45 minute classes!
Don’t be nervous! You are in control and you can choose the intensity and level that suits you best. So if you’re happy with low level jumping and getting the hang of the trampoline, that’s perfectly fine, or you can go for a workout with a higher pace – whatever your choice, just get jumping! You’ll probably feel more confident after the first 15 minutes anyway! Everyone can do this exercise at their own pace and jumping level, whilst gaining health results that are normally associated with high impact aerobic classes.
Studies by NASA scientists apparently show that jumping around on a mini trampoline is 68% more effective than jogging and yet requires less effort! – now there’s a fact!!! So what are you waiting for? Try a class this week!
