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.

Back to Basics HIP Pilates

Our High Intensity Pilates at HIP Studio is a Pilates reformer class spiced with an athletic approach. But some days your body wants to get back to basics. Or maybe you’re just starting out and the reformer harbors an intimidation factor you didn’t anticipate. We’ve added a HIP Back To Basics class on Saturdays to for you to reconnect or get aquatinted with your HIP Pilates practice.

No matter your level of fitness, practicing Pilates increases body awareness, flexibility, while creating lean muscles in conjunction with improving posture and core strength. This may relieve joint pain and stress in the neck and back. Strengthening the deep postural muscles can also help prevent injury as well as bouncing back from one.

The basis of Pilates focuses on stabilizing the muscles supporting the spine and pelvis for optimal alignment and better quality of movement. Creating a mind/body connection to core stabilizing muscles transcends to other activities outside of the practice for prime execution. It doesn’t matter if your target activity is balancing a baby on your hip or training for a marathon, Pilates takes it to a whole new level!
