I know back in June in my FitBloggin recap I mentioned that after my Ignite Fitness presentation, one of our sponsors approached me and asked if I’d be interested in working with them. That company was JumpSport Fitness Trampoline and after returning home from Florida, I had my very own trampoline waiting for me!
I have a little corner of my office that is sort of a quasi home gym with my Kettlebells, free weights, and fitness DVDs. Naturally that was the perfect spot for the trampoline once I put it together (which, admittedly, was a workout in itself!)
Speaking of DVDs, JumpSport sent me some trampoline workout videos which are super beneficial because other than just, y’know, bouncing up and down I wouldn’t necessarily know the best way to take advantage of the trampoline. The videos are challenging but fun and leave me a sweaty, sweaty mess.
They also make a great alternative to going outside for a run — the Bounce Camp video actually had me run for a little it which was easier than I thought and worked my balance skills in a way that running outside doesn’t. The fact that it was 85 degrees outside the day I did this and I was doing it in my nice air-conditioned apartment didn’t hurt either so I have no doubt that I’ll be using this a lot in the winter when it’s all cold and snowy outside.
Love from the ashes,
