I was so bored of going to the gym to work out and staring at every passing second on the treadmill like it is a time bomb ready to explode, that I had to venture into different exercise methods to keep me upbeat.
I happened to see this video on Facebook about a class called ((BOUNCE)) and had to try it. My first thoughts were this was going to be easy! Who can’t jump on a trampoline and who doesn’t love the feeling of being a child again? But lo and behold, it is jumping on a trampoline for 45 minutes constantly and is not as scary as one might think when you are in your 30’s, 40’s or even your 50’s.
I started ((BOUNCE)) as a trial class four months ago and I am so addicted to it now that if I don’t get a space for the class I am grumpy all evening. The instructor of course makes all the difference to every fitness class and Sarah Dickson – the bubbly energy ball, whose energy is infectious, pushes you to the core. The class consists of 45 minutes of aerobic choreography on a trampoline and 15 minutes of toning at the end.
The best part of the class is there is no commitment to sign up for weeks or months. You pay as you go (though booking a week in advance is recommended to avoid disappointment), so if you are on holiday or cannot make it for some reason you don’t lose out.
I can already see a huge difference in my body after starting ((BOUNCE)). It is definitely one of the best fitness classes of our times.
((BOUNCE)) runs at Netherhall Sports Centre on Thursday at 8pm, Friday at 6pm and Sunday at 9am (and did I mention the Sunday class is a child friendly one!).
