While searching for the perfect exercise to help astronauts returning from long space voyages, NASA scientists found that exercising on a trampoline was better than anything else on earth. The human body depends on gravity to function properly and jumping on a bellicon mini trampoline engages the body in a gravitational cycle, while also providing a fun, low-impact workout for everyone from Olympic athletes, to senior citizens, to those who have never exercised before.
Unlike other kinds of fitness equipment, including spring-based rebounders and cheap imitations, the bellicon features a custom-formulated, ultra-low-impact bungee suspension system that maximizes workouts, providing a muscle-toning, core-strengthening and cardio-pumping exercise with a single, simple and easy to store device.
Combining the benefits of plyometrics (“jump training”), eccentric exercise, and core training with a world-class cardio workout, bouncing with a bellicon strengthens and tones 638 muscles. As the most effective and efficient way to build your strength from the inside out, bouncing on a bellicon effectively raises your metabolism and increases your cardiovascular and lymphatic circulation. This increased circulatory motion allows lymphocytes and antibodies, the body’s defenders, to move faster, making them more efficient at getting rid of impurities and invaders.
And compared to working out on solid ground, bouncing on gentle, ultra-elastic bellicon bungees removes seven-eighths of the impact on joints, reducing back and joint pain, improving balance and coordination, and burning more calories than running.
Producing gravitational forces two to four times greater than normal, bouncing on a bellicon provides bones with the weight bearing force needed to build-up and stay strong. As a result, using the bellicon can help stop osteoporosis and osteopenia from progressing and, if begun early enough, can help to prevent the diseases from even starting.
Need the best possible workout in the least amount of time? The bellicon easily adapts to any schedule. Whether you’re a tennis champion working to increase your agility, a new mom looking to bounce back into shape, or a hard-working professional who wants the best possible workout in the least amount of time, bellicon offers the best possible workout in the least amount of time.
Aside from astronauts, many professional athletes turn to bellicon rebounders to safely and effectively prepare for competition. The US Ski team uses rebounders to train harder without strain, while Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah used the rebounder to get back into all-star shape after being injured, and 2013 IBF World Middleweight Champion Darren Barker turned to the trampoline to train for his World Title bout.
Made of the finest materials and components available, the bellicon’s steel frame and polypropylene, UV resistant mat are ready to be used indoors or out, which will keep you jumping rain or shine. Available in two models, the bellicon Classic and bellicon Premium, the bungee-based rebounders are fully customizable depending on your health and fitness needs and are whisper silent too.
