New research, published in the German Journal of Sports Medicine (Deutsche Zeitschrift für Sportmedizin) this February, reconfirms the effectiveness of rebounding exercise to significantly improve fitness, even when following a relatively light workout schedule.
By now, it’s no secret that the bellicon rebounder is fun and easy to use. Mini trampolines are an excellent way to not only burn off stress, pounds, and boost your immune system, but they are also a fun way to pass the time and get active while you’re at it. We wanted to show you some fun and interesting ways that people around the world are using the bellicon and how you can start using yours today!
When you want to add a strength training component to your workouts, you are not limited to using weight machines or free weights. You also have the option of using resistance bands, which offer convenience and versatility for your workouts.
These bands give you a lot of options, so you can work out however you want to and make exercising more fun. They are suitable for different fitness levels, making it easy to get started with strength training or to switch up a stale routine.
Have you been struggling to come up with a new business idea? Is writer’s block keeping you from finishing that screenplay? Are you having trouble finding a theme for this year’s fundraiser? Get your creative juices flowing again with a brain-boosting exercise break. Just 20 minutes of aerobic exercise can kick your brain into high gear, particularly when it comes to producing new and creative ideas.
Of course, using physical activity to help the thinking process is nothing new. Throughout time, people with something on their minds have paced floors or gone for long walks to process their thoughts, but it’s only during the last few decades that scientific research has shown just how it helps.
Winter appears to be gearing up to dump record-breaking levels of snowfall on the country, and you never know when the Polar Vortex may descend south once more to drive temperatures to phenomenally low temperatures. Although winter has not yet arrived, you still need to get in plenty of aerobic exercise and physical activity. Otherwise, you will be at a higher risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, especially considering the high-caloric, sweet, or even salty foods on the table this holiday season. Here are a few tips that will help keep you motivated to exercise this winter.

Check out Fayth Caruso and her team on this bellicon Cardiolates group class video. They use the bellicon 39" with screw on legs and do this class with up to 10 people. It's really fun and totally invigorating!
Just Bounce, the most playful and effective training concept of this time! There are countless of methods to remain fit, but according to modern science, there is a method that is more fun, more effective, easier, and healthier than anything else and suitable for all ages.
This past January to April of 2014 Julie embarked on a fitness challenge with bellicon. Her goal, with the help and support of bellicon and Fayth Caruso from Sixpax, was to lose 25 pounds, improve her diet and overall health, and to create a new fun fitness routine that she could stick with long term. There was a special catch: Julie could ONLY use her bellicon to do cardio and hit this goal!
The force of gravity, when combined with our unique, ultra-elastic bungees, can help you to become a force of nature.
That’s because each bounce on the bellicon takes you from up to 4 g-forces to zero gravity, creating a cycle of flexing and relaxing that strengthens and tones your muscles naturally and efficiently. And because it effects all 638 muscles in your body, you’ll increase your strength and vitality from head to toe, inside and out.
