New workouts pop up every day, and wouldn’t it be nice to try before you buy? In our “Last Night’s Workout” series we sweat, stretch, and shimmy our way through the latest exercise crazes and report back to you so you can find the best one for your skill level and fitness goals.
The Goal: An intense cardio workout that will also help you tone. “You can lose up to 600 calories in the 45 minutes depending of course on your weight and fitness level,” Markou says. “Apart from that, you’re constantly toning because you’re using your core to stay stabilized on the trampoline.” You’re automatically doing it the whole time without even realizing it. “And the beauty of that is you’re using your deeper core muscles,” making it great for relieving lower back pain, too.
The Location: Right now, there’s only one JumpLife studio in NYC’s Soho neighborhood, but Markou is hoping to expand. Along with JumpDance they also offer JumpGym, a more traditional class sans blacklights and club beats that adds in some more upper body work, too.
The Price: First-timers can take a class for $15. After that, it’s $28 per class, and you can buy classes in packages to discount them a bit. Visit the JumpLife website for class times and pricing information.
