Low Impact Cardio BOUNCE

Low Impact Exercise Classes

Mini-Trampoline Fitness

These classes are a total of 45 minutes. We do 30 minutes (with every 5 minutes a brief interval) of bounding on the mini-rebounder (specialised mini trampoline – not like the ones you buy at Rebel or Target). We then do 10-15 minutes of abs workout and stretch to finish off.

If you’re doing an Express Lunchtime session and need to leave after 30 minutes or join the class a bit later, that is ok too! Burn up to 900 calories in a single session.

Research snippet – Trampoline Fitness:

‘Trampoline-based exercise has a colorful history as a recreational activity, sport and training modality. During World War II, trampolines were used to help increase the spatial awareness and balance abilities of fighter pilots (Esposito and Esposito, 2009). NASA even studied trampoline training for their astronauts and found it to be as effective as running as a form of aerobic training (Bhattacharya et al., 1978). Many years later, McGlone, Kravitz and Janot (2002) reinforced these findings in a study that found no significant differences in maximal heart rate (HRmax), maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) or energy expenditure when exercising on a mini-trampoline in comparison to treadmill running’.

‘…for most group fitness participants and other gym-goers, caloric expenditure is a key consideration when choosing an exercise modality. ACSM (2011) recommends burning 200 to 300 calories during each 30-minute workout in order to lose or manage weight. This equates to 6.7 to 10.0 calories/minute. During the workout portion of the JumpSport routine, men burned an average of 12.4 calories/minute, while women burned 9.4 calories/minute. Including the warm-up and cool-down in this calculation brings these numbers down to 11.0 and 8.3, respectively, both of which are still well within the range offered by ACSM. This level of energy expenditure is approximately equivalent to running 6 miles (9.7km) per hour on flat ground or biking at 14 miles (22.5km) per hour…’
