Most people probably think that these sports are best suited to youngsters but not only are they both accessible to people of any age or ability but they can provide you with numerous health benefits as well.
Gymnastics is widely renowned as a sport that can improve overall fitness, strength, balance and body control as well as helping to improve athletic performance in any other sport. What most people do not realise is that it also provides many psychological benefits such as improved mental focus and concentration and discipline.
The most persuasive benefit of gymnastics is that it really GOOD FUN! Learning how to tumble, flip, swing, and come as close to self powered flight as is possible anything but boring. There is always another step to learn; it is possible to learn something new every single class you attend.
Of course a regular workout also releases ‘happy hormones’ (endorphins) that improve mood long after the class has finished! The fact that there are many diverse and wide reaching disciplines within the sport means that anyone can give it a go. There are so many benefits to trampolining as well it is hard to believe why everyone is not bouncing their way to getting fit!
One of the lesser known but more popular facts is that studies have shown that the activity of trampolining is one of the most beneficial methods to genuinely reduce cellulite – yes you heard me right REDUCES CELLULITE!With trampolining, the springs take away all the impact of the road (that you would get from running), and so as a result, the activity has been shown in tests to be 3 times more beneficial to you than running – so a ten minute bounce is the same as a half hour run. Other benefits include improvements in your sense of balance, cardiovascular health and firming and toning of your muscles.
Again most of all you will laugh smile and laugh your way through the class as it is such good fun! Want to read more about the benefits of gymnastics or trampolining then visit Springfit’s website www.springfit.org
