Top 10 Reasons to Sign Up for an Urban Air Trampoline Fitness Class

When it comes to ‘Losing big’, it can be quite a mixed bag of emotions. It can induce panic when it refers to losing money or putting you on top of the world if you’re talking about pounds.

But if you are having trouble sticking with expensive, yet stagnant workout routines, you’re not alone. The general criteria for the ideal workout is one part fun, two parts fast results, all topped off with a fitness plan that won’t break the bank OR your back!

So what about a fun, full-body, cardiovascular, and strength training fitness program complete with upbeat music to encourage faster movement and motivation? Maybe something that addresses all levels of fitness just within one class, and that’s flexible enough to be modified on an individual to fit any fitness level.

A trampoline fitness class hits all these high points and many more. Our fitness instructors have come up with this list of the top ten reasons you should give Trampoline Fitness class a whirl!

1. Efficient and fun way to exercise

According to NASA research, jumping on trampolines for 10 minutes is equivalent to a 30- minute run, giving you the same benefits in a 1/3rd of the time.

2. Great for cardiovascular health

It will strengthen the heart muscles and chambers because it’s a vigorous aerobic, and at times, anaerobic workout.

3. Prevents injury to joints, bones, and ligaments

We can do things on the trampoline that most people struggle with on a hard surface. It’s easier on joints thus preventing injury of ankles, knees, hips, and spine, allowing us to do intense exercise injury-free.

4. Helps build strong bones

The repetitive motion of jumping puts just enough stress on the bones which helps encourage buildup of mineral content. This increases the density of your bones and reduces your chances of developing conditions such as osteoporosis.

5. Helps build strong muscles

Powerful jumping moves strengthen your complete muscular system from your legs to your core, arm, neck, and back muscles. It’s a complete muscle workout in the jumping moves alone, then we add targeted “muscle-specific” exercises in conjunction with jumping. You won’t find a more complete workout anywhere else. Best of all, building muscle increases your metabolism.

6. Help the LYMPHATIC system do its job better.

The lymph system, which carries toxic substances out of the body, needs gravity and body movement to help this system work more efficiently. Jumping on a trampoline helps stimulate the lymphatic system to get rid of toxins, bacteria, and waste from your cells more effectively. Pure and simple, trampoline fitness helps cleanse the body faster.

7. It helps you lose weight

Because jumping on the trampoline incorporates all muscle groups your calorie burn is much higher. We have had members burn up to 1,300 calories in one class. When we alter the exercises with (HIIT) High Intensity Interval Training we not only spike caloric burn during the 60 min fitness class, but this type of training boosts your metabolism so that you are burning more calories for up to 48 hours after the class (after burn). That is the key to losing weight. Many people who start exercising are concerned with how many calories they burn during the class. At urban air we are more concerned with what calories are being burned after the class.

8. Elevates mood and helps relieve stress

Exercise and especially trampoline exercise is fun and invigorating. During any sustained aerobic activity lasting 12 minutes or longer, the body releases “happy” hormones which are called endorphins. These chemicals are released from the pituitary gland and have a “morphine” effect on the brain, producing feelings of happiness and well-being. It’s why many of us have a healthy “addiction” to our exercise programs. This is why exercise eases anxiety and reduces stress.

9. Improves agility and co-ordination

Jumping on a trampoline requires a lot of balance and concentration to hold core muscle groups tight while jumping and preparing for the next move during the fitness class. It improves overall motor skills. The transition from move to move improves coordination.

10. More energy and mental alertness

A trampoline workout helps tone the entire body, but you will see huge changes in your overall body composition within just a few weeks, especially in the muscle groups in the legs, core, and gluteal muscles. More jumping means more oxygen is flowing to your muscle groups and to your brain. Therefore, not only will you feel energized, you will feel mentally alert as well.
