With so many diet plans available, why are most people still overweight? Because exercise is an essential part of weight control. Without exercise, your chances of losing weight are (pardon the pun) extremely slim.
According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, “Getting to, and staying at, a healthy weight requires both regular physical activity and a healthy eating plan.” Among members of the National Weight Control Registry, a group of more than 10,000 people who have lost an average of 66 pounds and kept it off for more than five years, 89 percent used a combination of diet and exercise to achieve success. There’s no way around it, if you want to lose weight and keep it off, you have to make exercise a part of your lifestyle. Fortunately, bellicon makes that very easy to do.
Regular exercise on the bellicon offers you a solution to weight control and a healthier, more vibrant lifestyle (enhanced even further by a well-balanced diet), but it also presents you with a long list of extraordinary benefits, such as:
Most people stop exercising because it’s boring or inconvenient, but the bellicon solves those problems. A bellicon workout is not only fun but it’s always just a step away, no matter what the weather is outside. It’s a perfect exercise for helping you to reach your fitness, health and weight goals.
So you believe burning calories is hard labour? Not on a bellicon®. Exercising will no longer feel like a chore. You’ll have so much fun on the bellicon®, exploring all the things you can do on it, that your workouts will fly by. And since you can easily adjust the pace and duration of your exercise, you’ll be astonished to discover that instead of feeling exhausted afterwards, you’ll be invigorated.
A bellicon® is all about getting your workout to work for you. Move your mini trampoline indoors or out, bounce barefoot or in shoes – the choice is yours. When and where you work out is also entirely up to you. And since our exceptionally sturdy frame, which can support up to 440 pounds, is practically silent, there’s no such thing as too early or too late for exercising.
Bouncing on a bellicon® will change your view of working out. Health and fitness suddenly become fun.
We credit the success of the bellicon® to the fun factor. The reason is that exercising to lose weight is less about intensity and more about regularity.
Rebounding is an extremely efficient calorie burner. Studies show that this form of cardiovascular exercise raises your metabolic rate for up to 24 hours after you get off your mini trampoline, whether you’re working, relaxing or even sleeping.
By bouncing more often – in between meetings, errands and your favorite TV shows – you’re telling your body to burn fat and produce more energy. This surge in metabolism will help you to not only lose weight and relieve stress, but also to boost your strength, vitality, mental alertness and immune system.
For most of us, even those with health problems, light physical activity is way, way better than none.
On a bellicon®, you decide on the intensity of your routine. Which is why you can start getting in shape today, regardless of your current fitness level. It also means your mini trampoline can do different things for different family members because workouts are easily adaptable to a variety of fitness levels.
We would all like to be able to just wish the extra pounds away in an instant. But research shows that steady, gradual weight loss (between one and two pounds a week) sets you on the path to keeping it off. As the names imply, crash diets and quick programs are not a permanent fix. Staying in shape is about adopting a lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily exercise and eating habits.
Whenever you’re ready, the bellicon® mini trampoline offers you a leaner, healthier, more active and energetic lifestyle.
Just like muscles, healthy bones need exercise to stay strong. Physical activity and routines that involve supporting your own body weight infuse bones with calcium, making them stronger.
If you suffer from osteoporosis and osteopenia, there’s no better way to increase your bone density than rebounding on a bellicon®. That’s because bouncing is the ultimate weight-bearing workout. Your body shifts between experiencing weightlessness and up to four times normal g-force, stimulating your bones to rebuild.
While there is no medical treatment for age-related loss of muscle mass – known as sarcopenia – you don’t just have to watch yourself waste away.
Aerobic and resistance exercise together with a high-protein diet can help to reverse the effects of aging by rebuilding underused muscles, boosting energy levels and improving stamina.
Best of all, you won’t drag your feet over getting your low-impact cardiovascular and weight-bearing exercise on a bellicon®. That’s because making the healthy choice has never been this much fun.
By far the most common of the many forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis occurs when the protective cartilage at the ends of bones wears down over time. With the pain that sufferers experience making even everyday activities a challenge, exercise often seems a leap too far.
But hopping on a bellicon® can be one of the best things you can do for your condition. Gentle, low-impact rebounding tones muscles, lubricates joints, improves flexibility and can even relieve arthritis pain.
Everyone knows how exercise, as it increases the flow of blood and oxygen, helps the cardiovascular system, but we don’t often consider how it benefits the lymphatic system.
Our lymphatic system is responsible for taking the toxins, bacteria, dead cells…as well as cancer cells…that our immune system targets and removing them from our body. Since it has no pump, it needs motion and gravity to force the thick lymph fluid through our system.
If you’ve ever watched a toddler learning to walk, you’ll know that balance improves with practice. On a bellicon®, you’re giving your brain a refresher course in equilibrium. That’s because the repetitive motion of bouncing renews nerve pathways to your muscles.
Rebounding also steadies you by building core muscles, leg muscles and ankle strength – all of which are essential for balance and good posture.
Of course, balance is not the only thing that a bellicon® workout improves. You’re also getting a boost to your health and fitness all rolled into one.Read more details about this health benefit here
Discs and joints are no different from the rest of your body. To remain healthy, they need exercise. The spongy tissue inside a disc is saturated in water. For the disc to receive nutrients, this liquid must be wrung out and replaced. Besides facilitating this process, physical activity also helps maintain joints’ flexibility and range of motion.
Bouncing on a bellicon® gives you the energising, low-impact workout that your spine as well as the rest of your body needs to let you walk as tall and straight as you did in your youth.
