“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.
When people first learn about rebounding exercise, they often encounter a very long, very diverse, very impressive list of benefits that, for many people, piques their interest, but for others, like me, it makes them extremely skeptical. How is it possible that such a childishly simple exercise like bouncing can do all of that?
The answer is simple: gravity.
For the last few years, I’ve written a number of articles for the bellicon website, most of which were about current research related to health, fitness and rebounding exercise. Over the next few months, I’ll be doing this more frequently, with topics ranging from detoxification to osteoporosis to workplace fitness.
As much as I hope that you’ll find these articles informative and thought-provoking, I should warn you that the more you learn about rebounding exercise, and the more you share what you’ve learned, the more you’ll feel like you’ve taken crazy pills.
We’re pleased to introduce the new, bellicon® Comfort Mat, designed to enhance the style and performance of any bellicon® mini-trampoline.
Sleek design, greater versatility
Our new Comfort Mat has a streamlined new look and an integrated, cushioned extension that allows for even greater freedom of movement.
We are pleased to announce that the bellicon fitness trampoline has just received the endorsement of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), becoming the first fitness device of any kind to receive this recognition.
In 10 months, Heidi lost 100lbs by using her bellicon 7 times a week and changing her diet. She went to her annual check-up and showed her doctor her logged blood pressure from two weeks prior – her blood pressure had dropped significantly. Her doctor was amazed. On that same day, he took Heidi off of the 2 different types of blood pressure medicine that she had been taking for almost an entire decade.
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.
