The benefits of trampolining23rd September 2016 - Blog
Exercise has never been more fun! Bounce away those calories at Jump Street fitness classes. These are high intensity, low-impact cardio workouts that blast your core, improve all-over muscle tone and lift your heart rate.
The opposite of a gruelling ordeal, our classes are all about high spirits and awesome soundtracks. Most of all, it makes you smile, laugh and is great FUN!
Fitness trampoline classes offer the ultimate cardio workout without excess stress on the heart, muscles or on any joints.
Jump Street fitness programmes consist of a variety of classes all on the trampoline beds that will really get you energised. You burn more calories bouncing for 10 minutes than you do jogging for 30 without the strain on your joints. Studies show that an hour of jumping on a trampoline burns over 1000 calories. It’s the best cardio you will ever enjoy!
Although trampolining provides an intense workout for the muscles and bones, the mat absorbs 80 per cent of the shock from the rebound. This absorption reduces the stress on bones and joints, (like the knees, spine and ankles) and minimizes the chance of injury. Unlike jogging or playing tennis, trampolining provides your body with an all-round workout. Over time, this can result in improved balance, co-ordination and posture. Jumping can even increase the strength in your joints.
Muscle tone and suppleness is improved and your body fat percentage is reduced by trampolining. Muscles are also strengthened and lengthened, which increases flexibility. Regular use of a trampoline can also help improve posture and general muscle health. Being an aerobic exercise, your circulation is greatly improved. As you jump, your muscles such as the calf contract, helping the heart push greater quantities of blood enriched with oxygen around the body.
Bouncing at Jump Street regularly can help increase your body’s metabolic rate and its ability to burn calories more efficiently. Bouncing can also refresh the mind. When endorphins are stimulated, our bodies release a mood-enhancing chemical that produces a feeling of well-being in the body. Active exercise helps overcome negativity and depression and can lead to a happier, more positive you.
Training & Instruction
Trampolining can help combat depression, anxiety and stress by increasing the amount of endorphins released by the brain. Regular rebounding sessions can help you relax, promote better sleeping patterns and give your more energy. Exercising on a trampoline increases the circulation of oxygen around your body, making you more alert and improving mental performance.
A study carried out by NASA found that 10 minutes bouncing on a trampoline is a better cardiovascular workout than 33 minutes of running. The report said “for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running.” Bouncing on a trampoline also stimulates the flow in a way that helps rid the body of toxins and waste.
Co-Ordination & Agility
Bouncing on a trampoline increases awareness of your body and a sense of balance and coordination. You learn to control the coordination of the arms and legs while bouncing and to adjust the position of your body accordingly. Improved co-ordination and fine motor skills can assist in other sports that require a lot of hand-eye and general co-ordination. Gymnasts and acrobats also use trampolines to improve their co-ordination in aerial skills and tumbles.
Trampolining can help reduce the risk of bone conditions such as brittle bone disease, fractures and osteoporosis. Placing the musculoskeletal system under repeated slight stress while you jump allows your bones to become stronger to cope with the pressure of rebound. Bone mineral condition is also improved at the same time. The trampoline pad absorbs the majority of the impact, so your bones and joints are protected while you exercise.Back to All News
