With the launch of Airborne in Southampton on 14th March, we explore why trampoline fitness is such a revolution to your weekly workout…
Jumping to keep fit is a trend that is growing fast. It combines aerobic exercise with fun, so appeals to those who want to keep fit and enjoy exercise without it feeling like a chore or a painful experience! Ever since we were children we have all loved jumping up and down on whatever we can get our hands (or feet!) on, so why not combine this love of jumping with exercise and get the best of both worlds!
Airborne classes are high intensity, low impact fun! The instructor will take you through high-energy rebound routines which will truly get your heart pumping!
“Why shouldn’t I just go for a jog?”
Studies have shown that airborne exercise can in fact burn more calories than traditional forms of exercise like jogging – in fact up to 63% more! Rebound exercise makes your cardiovascular system work harder and your heart has to pump more blood around your body. Whereas jogging/running is pretty limited in terms of variety, there is a never-ending selection of exercise combinations and movement to perform on a trampoline – you’ll have your heart beating in a flash!
What it does for your health
Jumping strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body so that they work efficiently. It also promotes tissue repair, and regular trampoline exercise gradually allows the resting heart rate to decrease which is great for the cardiovascular system.
The lymphatic system is also greatly benefited by regular trampoline exercise. The lymph fluid moves through vessels run upwards in the arms, legs and torso, which is why the vertical movement of trampoline exercise is so effective to pump the lymph fluid. Anyway, putting the physiological degree to one side, it’s fantastic exercise for weight loss, toning, balance and bringing a smile to your face!
Don’t just take our word for it!
Trampoline exercise has been thought of as a very effective form of exercise for decades. A landmark NASA study in 1979 declared it “the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man.”
