For many, a sweaty workout in the gym is anything but fun. Perhaps some see treadmills, rowing machines and spin bikes as the enemy – equipment only to be endured in a quest for good health.
Well let us introduce you to Kangoo Jumps – the new 45-minute cardiovascular workout to hit the UK combines dancing, running and jumping – all whilst listening to a mixture of latino and funky house music. Oh and another thing, it’s all done on ‘Kangoos’ – ski-like boots connected to egg-shaped springs providing ‘rebound exercise’.
Already very popular in Eastern Europe, the class set to take the country by storm is now bookable via GoSweat.com, the new online marketplace that lets users easily discover, book and experience sports and fitness near them.
Whilst burning up to 1500 calories in a single session, the class provides an intense all-over body workout working your legs, glutes and your core muscles too – the ones that create those rock hard abs!
Originally designed by Canadian physiotherapists to reintroduce patients to exercise after injury, those who rebound will find that they are able to work longer, sleep better, and feel less tense and nervous. Because of the action of bouncing up and down against gravity, without trauma to the musculoskeletal system, it’s actually one of the most beneficial aerobic exercises ever developed.
Kangoo Jumps Instructor Carolina Salinschi said: “Our Kangoo Jumps class provides so many health and fitness benefits. It’s designed for all fitness levels, and the boots are easy-to-use and super comfortable. Above all it’s fun, and we can’t wait to see more people ‘jump’ on the Kangoo-wagon soon!”
