VAHA x bellicon: effective cardio workout with a mini trampoline

How does exercising with the bellicon® trampoline work?

Working out on a trampoline is much more than just frantic bouncing. With the bellicon®, you can jog as light as a feather, improve your balance and flexibility, do a variety of cardio, strength and agility training or take a break with a session of yoga or meditation. The workout itself is called “rebounding” and pretty straightforward. During strength training, you benefit from the gentle effect of the flexible bungees and mats, which enable a low-impact yet demanding workout. When jumping on the trampoline, your muscles react to the change in gravity and weightlessness: first by tightening, then by relaxing. This movement makes them stronger, in the most efficient way: as many as 656 muscles are activated while rebounding on the bellicon®! And a cardio workout will really get your metabolism going, which is why you should make sure to increase the intensity slowly at the beginning. You should also drink enough and have a quick cool down after the workout to benefit fully from its positive effects.

What is the benefit of rebounding?

One of the most significant benefits of rebounding is that jumping on a mini-trampoline stimulates the metabolism and cardiovascular system and gives you a full-body workout while still being gentle on the joints. It also activates all 656 muscles in your body (including the intrinsic muscles), releases endorphins and strengthens your bones. Various studies have shown that rebounding can relieve the spine, strengthen the back and improve your balance. This type of plyometric training is the most effective method to improve your jumping ability, agility, sprint speed, and motor skills and is also used by astronauts

The advantages of rebounding at a glance:

  • Fun factor: Rebounding is easy, motivating and release endorphins.
  • Easy on the joints: Less pressure on your back and joints for effective full-body training without additional pain. 
  • Calming: The vibrations of the trampoline have a calming effect on the body, joints and mind.
  • Quick success: Even short training stimulates your cardiovascular system and metabolism, you lose weight, and your stamina improves.
  • For everyone: Training with the bellicon® rebounder is suitable for all ages and all fitness levels.
  • Variety: Endurance, strength and coordination training in one!
