The latest trend this fall is mini-trampoline training. This trend in fitness appears in many gyms, it is promoted by Hollywood stars and their trainers. The BeautyHack editorial team understands what are the main pros and cons (yes, they also exist!) Of jumping.
A bit of history
One of the first to talk about training on a mini-trampoline was the star fitness trainer Tracy Anderson. Back in 2012, she released an instructional video on how to jump properly to get a dream body. “This workout can be a great alternative for those with coordination problems in dance routines or for those who are fed up with routine cardio,” said Tracy.
After a while, Hollywood celebrities began to speak well of jumping. Especially Victoria Beckham, who, as we know, is very picky about any innovation. And this year, Milla Jovovich began to demonstrate trampoline training with a personal trainer on social networks.
Gwyneth Patrow went farther than everyone else, who included this fitness direction in her daily routine and began to work out in the gym with a group of other girls. The actress admitted that jumping to the music in the company is much more fun. “Happy as a child,” Gwyneth signed one of her Instagram Stories during class.
Why trampoline training is popular now
However, there is nothing surprising in the fact that it was this autumn that jumping caused such an increased interest of the public. In our time of awareness, when everyone is talking about the fact that fitness should be done only for the sake of pleasure (we wrote about it here), it simply could not be otherwise. Yoga, Pilates, stretching and running with proper breathing are wonderful. Still, jumping on a trampoline under dynamic tracks looks much more fun. And they are definitely necessary in those moments of life when you want to recharge with energy, and not plunge into yourself. And the same Tracy Anderson believes that jumping ideally replaces intense cardio load, only it is given much easier.
How mini trampoline training affects our body
Training on a mini-trampoline improves the functioning of the vestibular apparatus and develops coordination of movements, promotes weight loss and helps to work out all muscle groups. However, jumping, like any other intense physical activity, is not suitable for everyone. Vadim Guryev, the trainer of the gym of the Encore Fitness chain, told us about the disadvantages of training on a mini-trampoline.
- Trampoline training is at its peak in America right now. And this is quite understandable: such an activity is always fun, charges with a good mood, increases endurance and gives the body a relief. But only if you are completely healthy and have come to workout after consulting your doctor. If you have problems with the spine and joints, then this type of fitness can only aggravate the situation and even become traumatic. Fortunately, there are many other perfectly safe options now. And the effect will be no worse, and maybe even better than fitness on a mini-trampoline. For example, look at functional training, high-intensity HIIT training, and cycling.
