Pilates is originally a method of exercise that consist of low-impact flexibility, endurance and muscle movements. And you can do it anywhere! At home, in the garden, in a group class or in the park.
Most people attend Pilates classes that are mat based. The exercises are performed on the floor and your body weight and gravity provide the necessary resistance. But there is another way that’s even better and we dare say: more fun!
Pilates trainer Kerrie-Anne
"You don't have to jump that high, but the movement itself is enough. You are challenged to get your balance right, by all kinds of coordination exercises. You can do fantastic exercises on the bellicon to stretch and cool down. Even if you have an injury, you can almost always use the bellicon to recover. "

"The bellicon has been a game changer for me personally and professionally; my fitness levels increased greatly. It has been useful for clients recovering from injury or knee/hip surgery. I have several clients who like myself who are unable to run or do cardio-type classes and all have reported much stronger knees. A half hour of good fun moderate intensity cardio is so effective, you get all the benefits of running with none of the down-sides!"

Like Pilates, the bellicon® is a low-impact exercise method. This is due to our unique bungee suspension. With every landing on the mat, your movement is “buffered” to protect your joints, ligaments, muscles and bones. The result is a smooth and soft, ultra-elastic landing. This offers a plethora of benefits for people with back and neck pain, as well as people suffering from osteoporosis or arthritis.
Pilates on the bellicon® strengthens the push and pull movements you perform during a regular Pilates training. The result? Extra resistance to the muscles and especially the deeper muscles which are so important for a correct posture and an injury free life. The core muscles are really working on the bellicon with every bounce. Since Pilates focuses on the active stabilizing of the core muscles this will be enhanced with the reflex of the eccentric muscle contraction adding an extra benefit to your core training.
The soft bounce on the bellicon® improves the elasticity of the connective tissue and muscles. This healthy movement ensures supple joints, spine and muscles. It’s time to challenge yourself by using the flexible mat surface to boost your routine.
In this video, Pilat trainer Tessa starts the training by teaching you to keep a correct posture and find your centre of gravity. What follows is a series of stretching exercises.
The series continues with a nice bouncing session to further loosen up those muscles. You will be smiling!
She ends with some more balance and coordination exercises and then your Pilates routine is done!
Training at home has never been this popular nor convenient. Exercising on the bellicon® is easy and fun and it activates all your muscles, gets the blood circulation going and pushes toxins out of your system because you effectively activate your lymphatic system. Bouncing on the bellicon® is great way to warm up before your Pilates training and get the circulation flowing before focusing on the core work and static holding movements.
Did you know that you have 656 muscles in your body? All of them are activated by bouncing on the bellicon®. In particular those in your legs, hips, torso and upper body, which in turn helps you to maintain a balanced body.
Challenge yourself with a bellicon Pilates routine while maintaining your balance on the flexible surface of the bellicon® mat. It’s more difficult that you think, but extra rewarding.
Besides bellicon Pilates at home, it can also be implemented in studios and bounce classes for extra diversity in your training offering!
