About Bungee Classes
Are you wondering what’s going on here at our NEWARK Studio? Have you seen this exercise on social media before? Well this is bungee fitness, and it is HERE in Delaware at Aerial Fun and Fitness!
Bungee fitness is accessible to people of all shapes, sizes, and ages offering benefits that you might not expect. By stepping into your harness and attaching yourself to the bungee cords, you are allowing the resistance of the bungees to lessen the impact and pressure on your joints during exercises that are typically higher impact! Do you have difficulty with squats or squat jumps? We would love for you to try them during our bungee fitness classes to get that feeling of weightlessness!
Our bungee fitness classes are currently 30 minutes at a time. Why, do you ask? This is because 15 minutes in the bungee alone can burn up to 400 calories and is similar to an hour at the gym! We are also keeping our classes at 30 minutes to build up your tolerance to the feeling of the harness. It might not be the most comfortable at first, but we promise you’ll get used to it!
Bungee fitness at Aerial Fun and Fitness is the cardio class that our students have been craving! But don’t worry, we are still always working on building up our strength, too. The bungee allows us to address balance, flexibility, and core strength indirectly through all exercises. We also focus on alignment during our exercises so that whether you are in the harness supported by the bungee or out on the gym floor, you are moving with proper alignment to keep you safe!
Our brand new beginners will start with our Bungee INTRO pack - take 3 beginner bungee fitness classes before moving onto level 1. In the first 3 classes, you will learn how to move in your harness in all dimensions and planes. You will move front to back, side to side, and up and down in order to “find your edge” and “test your boundaries” while connected to your bungee cords. Also this allows the body to adapt to the harness and find your fit with tension and tighness.
We are SO excited to share this new and exciting adventure with all of you! Whether you are a current student or someone who has just heard of us, we hope to see you at Aerial Fun and Fitness to try out our new bungee fitness classes!
