Spring Into Better Health With Fitness solutions Trampolines In Saskatoon



Spring Into Better Health


Jumping on a trampoline exercises the whole body. The g-force that bouncing produces helps to build muscle and burn fat quickly. This firms up every part of your body – including legs, thighs, arms, hips and stomach. It also has the added benefit of improving agility and balance. In our latest fitness article, we share the history of bouncing, some bouncing options and the trampoline options we have in store at Fitness Solutions in Saskatoon.   
The modern trampoline was created by George Nissen in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 1936. In 1938 the first “small trampoline” was created by Ed Russell, who left his ideas and prototype with Victor Green, who patented the “small trampoline” in 1975. Within a year, five American companies were manufacturing small trampolines, which were soon called rebounders.

Mini trampoline bouncing


Also known as rebounding—is an exercise that takes place on a trampoline. The exercise gained popularity in 1980 when NASA began using rebounding to help astronauts regain bone density after returning from space. This came on the heels of a study published in the Journal of Physiology that found rebounding is 68 percent more efficient than running.

“Rebound Exercise is the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man.”


Today, there appears to be an upsurge of interest in rebound exercise, in part due to the increasing quality of equipment and in part due to its use in physical therapy and the fight against obesity generally. Rebound exercise begins as soon as someone steps on a rebounder and begins to move their body. It can be highly aerobic — full-on sprints and interval training are ideal on a rebounder because it does not jar the physical body anywhere near as much as does hard ground — or it can be very slow and gentle, with only a gentle rocking taking place.

Fitness Solutions has several mini trampoline rebounder in stock, including the one pictured above: Rebounder

Full-Size Trampolines- Not Just For Kids 

If you have a trampoline in your backyard - or if you are considering one for your children, you can use it too!  We understand that not everyone is skilled enough or confident enough to do backflips, but that doesn't mean you have to avoid jumping on yourself. Below are a few additional ideas for incorporating a full-size trampoline into your workout routine.

Upper-Body Drills

Target your upper body by doing the plank-to-pushup exercise on the trampoline. Get down into a plank position so your body forms a straight line and you are supporting your weight on your forearms and feet. Push yourself up onto your hands and then do a pushup to complete one repetition. ground. Push yourself back up into the starting position and repeat. The instability of the surface makes this much more challenging in a trampoline - this equals more benefits for you.

Tackle the Lower Body

To work your lower body do lateral plyo jumps by standing on your left foot on the left side of the trampoline. Quickly jump to the right side, landing on your right foot to complete one repetition. Continue hopping from side to side as quickly as you can. You can also perform squats, lunges, jogging in place, high knee running or jumping jacks while on the trampoline.

Condition Your Core

The power bounce with lateral reach exercise helps strengthen your abdominals, lower back and hips. Sit on the trampoline and hop back up into a standing position as quickly as you can. Reach alternate arms across your chest every time you stand back up. You can also do crunches by sitting on the trampoline with your hands to your chest and your knees bent at 90-degree angles. Lean back so that you are balancing on your buttocks. Crunch your torso toward your knees without resting your lower back on the trampoline.

Whether it's a treadmill, free weights, racks, elliptical, yoga mat, or paddle board, they are there every step of the way to guide and educate you through the process of finding the perfect piece of equipment to make it happen. In their latest Saskatoon fitness tip they share their love of SUP’s aka Stand Up Paddle Boards


WHAT IS THERE NOT TO LOVE ABOUT SUP’S IN SASKATCHEWAN




What's Up with SUP’s

Paddleboarding is a unique activity for your entire body. Not only is it lots of fun, but it’s beneficial to your own personal health & wellbeing. In our latest fitness article, we share the benefits of SUP’ing, there’s more to paddleboarding that meets the eye. We will also share the SUP options we have in store at Fitness Solutions in Saskatoon. 

1. GETS YOU UP ON YOUR FEET

One of the greatest advantages of paddleboarding is that it gets you outside, onto the water and on your feet. This alone helps maintain both your body and mind. Most people only focus on the physical aspects of this activity, but it’s incredibly beneficial to a variety of other health aspects as well. 

2. HELPS WITH BALANCE

Paddleboarding requires a lot of balance to stand up on the board. This means that you’ll be practicing both your core and leg strength to keep yourself balanced on the board. 

3. REDUCES  STRESS LEVELS

Paddleboarding can be a great stress reliever due to the sedative nature of the water around you and the ability to make the action all about you. Not to mention, falling off the board can give you a serious adrenaline rush to push off any stressful feelings. 

4. EXERCISES THE WHOLE BODY 

Stand up paddle boarding did not start as a sport. Some say it was used by Hawaiian surf instructors to move around as they attended to learners in the water. Everything about this activity is amazing and makes people want to try it. Believe it or not, it takes your entire body to use your SUP board well. This means that while you’re paddleboarding, you’ll be working your back muscles, core, arms, legs, shoulders, and torso, offering you a whole body workout. 

As you try to stabilize yourself from gravity, your body will work hard to maintain balance. At the same time, you’ll use your arms and shoulders to move the stand up paddleboard paddle forward, as your heart beats faster and releases nitric oxide. Your blood vessels will open and increased oxygen will approach your brain, improving the function of nearly every organ in your body.



5. LOW-IMPACT WORKOUT

Generally speaking, paddleboarding is a low-impact workout, meaning it can’t do serious damage to your ligaments or tendons. However, this also means it’s beneficial to anyone who experiences knee or hip pain, as well as shin splints. SUP’ing can help you increase your strength or recover from injuries, without doing any harm to your body.

6. HELPS WITH  LOSING WEIGHT

If you are looking to slim down, you should look to paddleboarding to help with your weight loss goals. Studies have shown that paddleboarding can help lower your body fat. Plus, paddleboarding is generally a fun type of exercise to actively take part in.


7.  BOOSTS CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

Paddleboarding can help lower your risk of suffering from a stroke or heart attack, according to iSupWorld.com. This is because paddleboarding is similar to cross-training, running, and aerobics, all of which greatly help cardiovascular health and prevent a greater risk of relatable diseases.


8. MEDITATION WHILE YOU PADDLE


In the beginning, you may find Paddleboarding difficult to master, especially when you are just developing the ability to balance on the board itself. This also helps heighten your awareness of every move you make while on your paddleboard. Psychologist researchers determine this state of mind as “flow,” which is ideal for Zen Meditation.

However, being in this “flow” state of mind can offer you a wide range of health benefits, including improved mood, focus, and cognitive function. You can also experience better memory, and improved creative and empathetic ability. 

9. BOOSTS VITAMIN D LEVELS


This benefit is very important, especially, if you don’t get the opportunity to be out in the sun much. After our long winters in Saskatchewan, we look forward to getting some sunshine. As long as you are wearing waterproof sunscreen this is good for you since it boosts your vitamin D levels. 

We think you will agree, there’s so much more to paddleboarding than just doing the activity. Not only is it fun and great exercise, but it also helps improve the current state of your mind and body in a calm and soothing environment on the water. 

When looking for StandUp Paddle Boards, Fitness Solutions takes the time and asks you questions and goes through all the details, to find the perfect Paddle Board for you. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to climb on your board and start paddleboarding today!
