The inevitable New Year’s resolution each year is to get healthy and fit, but this year it couldn’t be made any simpler with Jump Street. The innovative trampoline park is launching its next fitness centre on January 9 in Chelmsford, providing numerous fun activities to help you get fit

Exercise has never been more enjoyable! Now you can bounce away those unwanted calories at Jump Street fitness classes in Chelmsford or Colchester combined with high intensity, low-impact cardio workouts that blast your core, improve all-over muscle tone and lift your heart rate.

The opposite of a gruelling ordeal, Jump fitness classes are all about high spirits and awesome soundtracks, but most of all, it is fun.

Trampoline fitness classes give participants the ultimate cardio workout without excess stress on the heart, muscles or joints. Trampolining burns more calories in ten minutes than jogging for 30 minutes — without the strain on joints. In fact, studies show that an hour of jumping on a trampoline burns over 1,000 calories.

Why’s trampolining different?

Low-impact exercise

Although trampolining provides an intense workout for the muscles and bones, the mat absorbs 80% of the shock from the rebound. This absorption reduces the stress on bones and joints (like the knees, spine and ankles), and minimises the chance of injury. Unlike jogging or playing tennis, trampolining provides your body with an all-round workout.

Muscle toning

Muscle tone and suppleness is improved and your body fat percentage is reduced by trampolining. Muscles are also strengthened and lengthened, which increases flexibility. Regular use of a trampoline can also help improve posture and general muscle health. Being an aerobic exercise, your circulation is greatly improved.

Improved health

Bouncing at Jump Street regularly can help increase your body’s metabolic rate and its ability to burn calories more efficiently. Bouncing can also refresh the mind. When endorphins are stimulated, our bodies release a mood-enhancing chemical that produces a feeling of well-being in the body. Active exercise helps overcome negativity and depression and can lead to a happier, more positive you.

Training and instruction

Trampolining can help combat depression, anxiety and stress by increasing the amount of endorphins released by the brain. Regular rebounding sessions can help you relax, promote better sleeping patterns and give you more energy.

Co-ordination and agility

Bouncing on a trampoline increases awareness of your body and a sense of balance and coordination. You learn to control the coordination of the arms and legs while bouncing and adjusting the position of your body accordingly. Improved co-ordination and fine motor skills can assist in other sports that require a lot of hand-eye and general co-ordination.
