Best Home Workout Kit: Winner
BELLICON Rebounder | From £419
The Bellicon rebounder is the winner in the Best Home Workout kit category. Proving that exercising can actually be fun, the Bellicon rebounder has transformed our lockdown experience, enabling us to exercise safely despite injury, and giving us a whole-body workout that we wouldn’t have believed possible from a trampoline.
A study published in the International Journal of Sports Science hass suggested that rebounding on a trampoline is twice as effective at improving aerobic fitness than running. It also showed that exercising on one increased vertical jumping ability – and jumping is effectively what you do with every step of your running. Plus it protects your joints on impact. But the benefits go further than just a softer landing: bouncing helps strengthen and tone your pelvic floor, as well as your deep back and stomach muscles, and helps prevents back pain. The Bellicon rebounder, made in Germany, can be custom fitted to the weight of the user, training goals and to respect physical complaints
“I loved this,” said Esther. “It’s almost silent because of the bungee cords, the guidance you get from Bellicon is really helpful, and I’ve struck with it because it’s such good fun. It’s brilliant when you’re injured as you get very little impact on your joints, and the kids love it too of course!”
