Unlike heavy fitness equipment, the bellicon® rebounder is portable enough to carry indoors or out. So you can take your full-body workout where your mood leads or wherever the air quality is best - and simply leave your allergies behind.
The bellicon® is also weather resistant. Our mats aren’t affected by harmful UV rays, so the bellicon® lets you enjoy your place in the sun. What’s more, the synthetic rubber in our bungees is not only safe for people with latex allergies, it’s also more elastic, more durable and easier to recycle than natural rubber.
Best of all, a report by the U.S. National Institute of Health shows that the kind of regular aerobic exercise you get on a bellicon® can even help to alleviate some allergy and asthma symptoms.
Rebounding is good for the immune system
Did you know that bouncing on a mini trampoline is good for your immune system? Bouncing improves your metabolism and blood circulation in your cardiovascular and lymphatic systems. As a result, the lymphocytes and antibodies - your own army - flow faster through the body to deal with unwanted intruders.
Blog: the benefits of rebounding
'Aside from boosting your physical fitness level, rebounding provides additional benefits to your health. Health and fitness consultant Ted Johnson explains in a Fox News article that the movement of going up and down on a trampoline stimulates your lymphatic system. It helps clean this system, which includes lymph nodes, tonsils and other parts of the body that contribute to your body's immune health. Exercise encourages lymph fluid to move through your body, helping get rid of toxins and fighting against many health problems, including inflammation, allergies and high stress.
'My breathing has improved'
'The bellicon is above my expectations. I have more fun in movement, improved breathing and improved balance. I also have more control over my body. More rest and a better condition. The device stands in the middle of our living room, everyone who visits us looks up a bit strangely. They almost all want to try it out, and those who do have fun!!
One of the most common allergies to strike during a workout is exercise-induced asthma (EIA). This happens when the increased breathing rate during exercise dries out the moist lining of the lungs. The result is coughing, wheezing, or shortness of breath.
If you suffer from this condition, being able to move your bellicon® mini trampoline indoors when the weather is colder and drier – conditions likely to aggravate your symptoms – can be a big help.
Since exercise-induced asthma usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to develop, another option is to divide workouts into 10 minute segments and do them throughout the day. You can get a full day’s workout a bit at a time by using your bellicon® for fun, energizing “health breaks” between your other activities. This way you can still get a full workout in invigorating, bite-sized chunks that’ll keep you energized between your other daily activities.
Local news and Internet weather forecasts provide daily pollen counts for your area. They will also warn you about unhealthy levels of air pollutants, which affect breathing and aggravate the effects of airborne allergens.
If you know that your allergies are active, consider taking your allergy medication prior to outdoor exercise so you can avoid symptoms before they begin. Toughing it out with allergy problems isn’t a good idea and can lead to potentially dangerous situations, especially if it affects your breathing. If you use a rescue inhaler, make sure it’s handy whenever you exercise during allergy season or near allergy triggers.
The more vigorous your exercise, the faster you breathe and the more pollen and other irritants are exposed to your lungs, eyes and nasal cavities. Beginning your workout with a gentle warmup lets you gauge how bad your allergies are and adjust accordingly. Adding warmups and a cool downs to your workout not only makes the onset of allergic reactions more tolerable, it’s better for your heart, muscles and joints as well.
Regular training on the bellicon® mini trampoline has numerous positive effects on your entire body. Bouncing on this device not only effectively strengthens the cardiovascular system and all muscles, but also activates the metabolism of each cell. The moderate movement on the bellicon® also promotes the body's self-healing functions. This in turn has positive effects on some of our societal diseases.
