Trampoline Workouts are HIP

As a kid, rebounding is so much fun, from jumping on the bed to mastering a pogo stick. However, this quality of movement has greater benefits then nostalgia from your youth. Trampoline workouts improve balance, bone density, coordination, cardiovascular fitness and organ function. A study by NASA Scientists has shown that rebounding for 10 minutes is better workout than 33 minutes of running.

The fitness trampoline makes a normally high impact exercise, low impact by absorbing 80% of the shock. The period of acceleration and deceleration is increased. This is much easier on the joints compared to running or jogging on a hard surface with no give at all. It also allows bones to become stronger as they respond to the pressure of the rebound over time.

Rebounding can actually help you get rid of toxins in the body. Bouncing on a trampoline stimulates your lymphatic system that helps rid toxins and waste. The change in gravitational force increases blood flow more than exercises on flat land, thus increasing the amount of toxins flushed from the body by around 15%!

With your core stabilizing your balance, you’re toning and getting cardio in one! HIP Studio incorporates the fitness trampoline in Bag of Tricks and 30/30 Burn Classes.

30/30 Burn & Reform

Written by: Kayte Corrigan This is the perfect time of year to go exercise exploring! Sign up for our 30/30 Burn and Reform. If you haven’t tried it, you’ve seen it on the schedule. Maybe you’ve even heard some talk around the water cooler. It’s our newest class from trainer, Maggie McKaig! If you love Maggie’s tough High Intensity Pilates classes and can’t get enough of Bag of Tricks, you’re going to love this class.

In the Pilates room, the first 30 mins of class is dedicated to interval sprints on the fitness trampoline. You’ll reach new heights and set personal bests with a great mix of low impact cardio exercises on the tramp. By incorporating light weights, your arms get a burn too while your legs bust down calories. It’s a high intensity sweat, so bring your water and towel. The second half of class takes it down to the reformer so you can focus on form. On the machine, get back to basics by touching the core of Pilates principals. These exercises focus on stability, technique, and strength. It’s a great way to reconnect and refresh your Pilates practice. 30/30 Burn & Reform is also perfect for new HIPsters. This class dips a toe into Bag of Tricks and High Intensity Pilates so you can test a little of both classes in one! Anyone who wants a mix intense cardio and classic Pilates should add this to their schedule.

Maggie’s inspiration: I love to run or swim before I take Pilates.  Why not just combine the two?!  Get the heart really pumping and burn calories before taking it slow on the machine.  Now if I could only incorporate a swim somehow into the mix!!  

 We’re working on getting that lap pool for you, Maggie. Hermosa Beach zoning just won’t let us put one in the parking lot. Can’t wait to see you in 30/30 Burn & Reform!

  • Due to limited space and equipment, please note there are 8 spots available in each 30/30 Burn & Reform. After 8 clients reserve spots, there will be a waitlist.
  •  We highly suggest you bring a towel for the second half of class. Sweaty palms make slippery planks. Safety first!
  • Feedback is appreciated. If you love this class let us know what time you’d like to see it on the schedule. If you have any other comments, let us know how we can make it better.
