Everyone wants to be lean and fit, but many people find strict exercise plans to be boring and restrictive. Unfortunately, these strict exercise plans are often not successful because individuals do not stick with them. Gym subscriptions can be expensive and time consuming, and some users may feel more comfortable with achieving their weight loss goals without being in a crowded workout facility.
Vuly believes that there is a better way to achieve long-lasting fitness. Why not blast away the fat in a fun, easy exercise plan with a trampoline? If you think that the simple rebounding motion is all that you can do on a trampoline, think again. While rebounding is a fantastic way to lose weight and detoxify the body (see our detoxifying article for more information), there are other workout tools and motions that you can incorporate into a trampoline exercise plan. As an added benefit, there are no monthly member fees, unavailable machines, or special workout wear required, and you can do it in the privacy of your own home!
We love hearing feedback from our customers and sometimes have the pleasure of hearing some inventive and inspiring methods that our trampoline users have used to burn off fat. Here are some of our favorites:
Kelly, a recent college graduate, credits jumping rope while jumping on her 12 foot trampoline as a factor in her recent weight loss. “I always wanted the lean bodies like I saw on TV, but I was so bored running on a treadmill. I felt like I was just running on a hamster wheel,” she explained. “My weight was ballooning out of control and I felt so unattractive and unhappy. Then I started reading about trampoline rebounding plans and thought that it might work for me!” By adopting a healthy diet, increasing her water intake, and exercising regularly on her trampoline, Kelly has lost 42 pounds. “I was told by a friend that jumping rope provided some fantastic health benefits, but I was afraid that my joints couldn’t handle it on hard surfaces. I didn’t realize how easy it was to incorporate jumping rope into my exercise plan until I got a trampoline from Vuly. “Kelly said that jumping rope on her trampoline was inexpensive and easy, and that her cardiovascular endurance and stamina has never been better. “I feel like my new trampoline exercise plan has given me my life back,” she says. “It was fun, it was easy, and it worked for me!”
* Matt , a software engineer, found that running in on his trampoline was much more fun than running around his neighborhood. “I love to run, but I hate how my knees and back ache when I run on the pavement,” he said. “I wanted to be active, but it just wasn’t worth the pain or the humiliation of being the big guy huffing and puffing around the block. I was insecure about my weight and didn’t want an audience, “he said. Matt decided to buy a 14 foot trampoline from Vuly after he started doing some research on trampoline workout palns “I thought that the large size would give me plenty of room to move, “he states. Matt has stuck with his new trampoline exercise plan and is feeling healthier and better than ever. “Because I sit in my office chair all day, I have to make a conscious effort to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Running on my trampoline keeps my heart rate up and my weight down. My weight loss has put even less pressure on my joints, and I can tell a big difference in my flexibility. Plus, I love the fact that I can do it in my bare feet!”
* If a high intensity workout is your forte, why not try incorporating a trampoline into your martial arts or kickboxing training? Stan, a high school teacher, discovered that performing his kickboxing moves on a trampoline increased his balance, his strength, and his agility. “I would stretch, warm up, and then take some pumping music outside to my trampoline,” he said. “I would start with my training moves and do them for the duration of one song. Then, during the next song, I would bounce or run in place on the trampoline until the next song would come on.” Stan said that he would continue switching the songs and workout methods for the duration of one album’s time length and then would finish his workout for the day. The results, he said, were fantastic. “I got a great interval workout with my trampoline exercise program and I always had something new to concentrate on. Because I was never doing anything for very long, I never got bored with the workout. If I was struggling with the intensity of the exercise, I reminded myself that the interval would be over soon. My trampoline workout program has kept me moving and my girlfriend says she can really tell a difference in my muscle definition!”
