Rebound/Tabata

Rebounding is a great fun, high energy class done on a small trampoline.  The great benefit to Rebounding is there is no stress on your joints, as the rebounder takes all the impact.  The rebounder can also aid in injury recovery because of this.  It also can improve your lymphatic (drainage) system therefore aiding your body to detox as effectively as possible. This has been known to aid post-cancer treatment.  Additional benefits include increasing your bone density and strengthening your pelvic floor area.

Tabata Interval Training is the single most effective type of high intensity interval training, and it’s also the most intense.  It is surprisingly short in duration but this short burst of exercise produces remarkable effects.  Tabata training was discovered by Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo.  Dr. Tabata discovered that this kind of interval training produces much better results than aerobic training.  This makes it a very versatile program and can use Tabata for weight loss as well as improving performance in most aerobic and anaerobic sport.

Tabata intervals follow this structure:  (Push hard 20 seconds, Rest 10 seconds, Repeat x 8, Rest 1 minute) x 3

We finish this class with Rebound, helping to remove any build up of lactic acid toxins in the body.  This class is really challenging and a refreshing change from standard circuit classes.
