Keeping symptoms to a minimum and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are the main challenges with lipedema.
The bellicon is exceptionally well-suited to meet the fitness and health needs of people struggling with lipedema. The bellicon's unique, ultra-elastic suspension system makes every bounce smooth, enjoyable, and incredibly effective at burning fat and calories while dramatically increasing cardiovascular fitness.
Consider how unusual rebounding exercise is: we bounce to create waves of gravitational forces that engage the entire body, inside and out, thus dramatically improving fitness. Whaaat? No other exercise operates like that! But that's the essence of rebounding.
Even experts in fields other than fitness have taken advantage of rebounding's unique performance and qualities to help people live safer, healthier, more enjoyable lives. Looking at that research offers some unusual insights into how deeply effective rebounding is in ways that we, those of us who bounce for fitness, might not expect.
In the last few years, rebounding exercise's popularity has grown enormously, with millions of people worldwide now enjoying it as their "go to" workout. The research community has also rediscovered rebounding, publishing research at an unprecedented rate about its remarkable health and fitness benefits.
So, why are so many people still unaware of this extraordinary exercise? It's a good question, and it's not absolutely clear why that is, but here are a few possible explanations.
An extensive research study, published by The Lancet in September of 2018 (1) and involving 1.2 million Americans, showed that people who exercise regularly have significantly fewer "bad self-reported mental health days" in the year than people who don't. In other words, people who exercise are happier. And they found this to be universally true, regardless of age, gender, and just about every other factor, including income bracket. The study showed that you'd have to earn an additional $25,000 a year or more to get the same mental health boost that regular exercise provides.
Rebounding is a unique form of exercise that uses the muscular engagement and gravitational changes produced by bouncing to provide an unmatched full-body workout.
Why is bouncing so effective? Because our bodies thrive on the kind of gravitational changes it produces. And not just for fitness but also for the multitude of systems in our bodies that maintain our health.
“Exergaming,” or using game console programs for exercise, is a fun and convenient way to approach fitness, but studies have shown that it tends to fall short of providing the same level of physical activity as traditional exercise. Fortunately, researchers have discovered a simple solution for boosting the benefits of virtual training sessions from mediocre to awesome: adding a mini-trampoline.
