For anyone new to the idea of working out in a bungee harness, here are some answers to your most asked questions…
What is Bungeecise?
Bungeecise is a different way to exercise compared to traditional workouts. It is a revolutionary full body training system for fitness and rehabilitation, combining resistance training with a cardiovascular workout and using your body to push against the bungee cord.
How is a Bungeecise workout better than other workouts?
Weightless training in a bungee harness means you can complete a high intensity workout with no stress on your joints. A low impact workout in a bungee offers people of all ages and body shapes, a new, innovative and fun way to train and rev up metabolism, improve mobility, balance & coordination and quickly burn hundreds of calories.
What happens when I arrive at a Bungeecise class?
Before taking part in a typical Bungeecise class, your height and weight are measured to assess the level of bungee support that’s right for you. Your bungee harness is then fitted about your waist and legs before being hooked up to either one or two bungee cords.
What should I wear?
The Astro Durance luxury harness is the most comfortable bungee harness on the market, but extensive workouts can be a little harsh on your skin, so it’s recommended to wear clothing that isn’t too loose and an extra layer around your hips and waist (shorts over leggings or well fitting tracksuit bottoms are popular choices).
Should I avoid food before a class?
Whereas food needs to be digested before you step into the bungee, you want to avoid being light-headed when taking part in a high intensity workout where you can sometimes be upside-down, so snack/ protein bars are a good way to get an energy boost before a class.
How is the ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee Fitness System better?
Workout harder and longer with Astro Durance premium bungee fitness equipment. The patent pending tube lining in our ASTRO-DURANCE® bungees provide more buoyancy and stretch helping users to be lighter on their feet during training.
