Many people think one has to be an experienced athlete or trainer to participate in a bellicon rebounding course. The fact is, we welcome all into our courses! The course as an opportunity for anyone to learn more about how to use your bellicon, how to rebound with soft bungees, benefits of rebounding, and how to design a well-rounded workout for either yourself or maybe for others. Most importantly we aim to share with you our love of rebounding, our love of the bellicon, and and hopefully inspire you to share this newfound knowledge with others to create a community of happy, healthy, fit individuals.
Summer is getting close, or so we hope, and so is the calories count. We always look forward to summer and with that comes the consciousness of having to expose parts of our body! What to do then? First thought goes to all those “good” resolutions; more physical exercise, a stricter diet or heathier eating with smaller portions.
In today’s society detoxification is “in.” We’ve tried it all - detox juice cleanses, detox spas, and detox diets. I’ve even read about detoxifying foot pads. These are all tricks and trends used as an attempt to jumpstart a vital function in the body - the lymphatic system.
We tend to think of sleep as a time when the mind and body shut down. But this is not the case; sleep is an active period in which a lot of important processing, restoration, and strengthening occurs. Exactly how this happens and why our bodies are programmed for such a long period of slumber is still somewhat of a mystery. But scientists do understand some of sleep's critical functions, and the reasons we need it for optimal health and wellbeing.
Why are we so keen about rebounding? Because we use gravity at our advantage. The first major study to reveal the extraordinary fitness benefits of bouncing on a trampoline (also known as “rebounding”) was published over thirty years ago. In 1980, while searching for the best exercise to help astronauts regain their physical fitness after returning from long space voyages, NASA scientists discovered...
We all wish we could live in a country rich in sunshine accompanied by the fantastic food for a balanced diet: if that was the case, we would never be deficient in Vitamin D. Vitamin D is a soluble vitamin found in fats, very important for the development of bones, for the skin and mood, which the organism produces when in contact with sun light.
You might think you are wearing a perfectly acceptable sports bra. In fact, you are probably not!
Worse scenario? You are probably a small breasted woman who don’t think you need the flattening or sometimes uncomfortable support that sports bras provide!
As mentioned in our post “the secret of rebounding” , one of the main benefits astronauts were interested in getting from rebounding was the increased bone mass, as they typically suffered from a loss of bone strength during their time in zero gravity.
Well, the good news is …we do not live in zero gravity, but the bad one is …we all age and with that comes a higher risk of loss of bone strength which makes us prone to suffering from osteoporosis.
