I workout entirely at home.
I simply live too far from the nearest organized gym to manage a membership.
Because of a very hectic schedule, I often workout at odd times of the day and night. I need to be able to accomplish a beneficial exercise session in a short amount of time. I am always looking for new and creative ways to get motivated and burn as many calories as possible. Just recently, I invested in a trampoline. I didn’t buy a gigantic trampoline that takes up space in the backyard. I chose a smaller version that fits right into my home gym. The equipment is lightweight, easy to move and a great way to exercise. I perform what’s called rebounding exercise on the mini-trampoline and benefit from a fantastic cardiovascular workout. According to a recent study, rebounding is 68% more effective than going for a job. It gets the heart pumping, works the lungs and inspires a sweat without hard impact on the joints. The cushion of the trampoline works to absorb the shock on the feet. Unlike running, it isn’t damaging to the hips, knees, ankles or feet. Along with benefiting the cardiovascular system, rebounding stimulates the lymphatic system. It encourages this network of tissues and organs to get rid of undesirable materials in the body. Jumping also works to strengthen the immune system. I like that it targets the core muscles, back muscles, glutes and legs. It provides toning while also improving motor skills. It encourages coordination, agility and balance. I’ve found that jumping to music is fun and puts me in a great mood. It doesn’t really feel like exercise. I make sure to include a variety of movements such as jumping jacks, jogging and tuck jumps.
