Bouncing around might be fun, but it won't give you an effective workout, right? Wrong! Exercising on a mini trampoline provides plenty of smiles while giving you a great workout at the same time. The bellicon® mini trampoline takes the benefits of a rebounder to the next level to give you one of the best trampoline workouts you can achieve.
A Safe Way to Exercise
When we talk about exercising on a trampoline, we're not referring to the giant ones gymnasts use or kids play on in the backyard. Instead, we're talking about a rebounder, which is a small trampoline designed for exercise that is compact enough to fit inside your living room or home gym. You don't have to worry about the safety hazards of a larger trampoline when you work out on a rebounder; that's because you'll be moving in a more controlled way. For added safety, you can add a support hand bar that will help keep your body in place while you exercise.
An Effective Workout
A rebounding trampoline provides a successful aerobic workout that gets your heart rate up, providing cardiovascular benefits. A 150-lb. person can expect to burn around 205 calories during a half hour bouncing session on the bellicon, which is more than you would burn if you were jogging on the street. This benefit can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight, depending on your needs and goals.
Using a rebounder gives you a well-rounded workout with just one piece of equipment. On top of its aerobic benefit, rebounding strengthens your muscles. In particular, it targets the muscles in your core, legs and buttocks. Strengthening your body provides many benefits, including boosting your confidence, making everyday activities easier, improving your health as you age and helping you burn more calories even when you're resting. In addition, the unstable surface of the rebounder pushes your body to keep you stable, helping your muscles work harder during your workout and improving your balance.
Working out on a mini trampoline puts less pressure on your joints to give you a low-impact workout. This gentle type of exercise is effective for people with injuries, beginners, the elderly population, pregnant women and people with osteoporosis and certain other health conditions. It even strengthens bones, which is particularly beneficial if you have osteoporosis. Just about anyone healthy enough to exercise can use a rebounder trampoline. And everyone can find a rebounding exercise they enjoy!
Additional Health Benefits
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.
You can have a fun and effective workout simply by bouncing up and down on your rebounder trampoline. Nonetheless, you are not limited to bouncing when you work out on this equipment. You can also jog, walk and perform a variety of exercises, such as jumping jacks and squats. You can even lie down on the trampoline to perform core exercises.
This versatile piece of equipment allows you to mix up your workouts to keep exercising as exciting as possible. This is important, since you'll work out more often if you enjoy the process. With the small size of these trampolines, it's easy to set them up in front of a television or stereo so you can work out along with your favorite shows or bounce to the beat of a hit tune.
Choosing the Right Mini Trampoline
A number of health professionals explain in the Fox News article that not all rebounders are created equal. They note that some of these trampolines are not made to high quality standards. These inferior varieties can put a lot of impact on your joints when you move and don't provide the same benefits as a well-made version.
With the bellicon, you work out on a top-of-the-line rebounder made with high-quality materials and a superior design. It provides an extremely low-impact workout through its unique bungee suspension system, helping you get the most out of every exercise you perform in a completely safe way.
Whether you are just beginning with a workout routine or you are an avid exerciser, you will find an array of benefits from owning a rebounder trampoline. This piece of equipment adapts to fit any fitness level. As a beginner, you will have a low-impact, simple exercise that is safe for most people. As an intermediate or expert level exerciser, you can add a rebounder to your routine to add excitement to your workouts and to achieve the fitness benefits a rebounder offers.
