YOUR FITNESS with Rachael Chance.
YOU may have seen the crazy on line video clips on social media of a new fitness craze that is now hitting the UK.
Hot sweaty, gym-goers bouncing up and down on a mini trampoline with handle bars attached! What's all that about? Well, this month we take look at Boogie Bounce.
What is Boogie Bounce? The people at Boogie Bounce say:"The Boogie Bounce programme is a complete exercise programme on a mini trampoline, with a safety bar, choreographed to chart topping inspiring music which includes an extremely effective cardio section, and a really powerful bums, tums and thighs section too! Every muscle in the body is worked. Even the facial muscles!" We recently went along to a Boogie Bounce training day, and we have to say, bouncing around on a mini trampoline 'rocks'.
Everyone loves to bounce. Look what happens when you bounce a baby on your knee, they start to giggle and smile and end up laughing. We were born to bounce.
Take that through the generations and you have one of the most amazing exercise programmes ever, which is suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes whilst actually having a fun time and getting fit!
NASA even agrees that bouncing is "the most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man".
Studies by NASA scientists show that bouncing around on a mini trampoline is 68% more effective than jogging and yet requires less effort! You can also develop both upper and lower body strength just as effectively as weight lifting without the strain or threat of pulled or torn muscles.
Put simply - bouncing on a mini trampoline is unlike regular trampolining; the aim isn't to bounce high or perform gymnastic tricks, but to perform a series of small, controlled movements.
Boogie Bounce is dancing with intervals of jumping, bouncing, frogging and stomping, to name but a few moves, performed to music and a set programme.
The mat of the mini trampoline is used as a resistance tool, which makes the whole programme two to three times more effective than a normal everyday aerobics class.
Anyone and everyone can do this at their own pace whilst gaining the impressive health results that are normally associated with high impact aerobic classes, without even realising it!
