Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 06, 2014

While searching for the perfect exercise to help astronauts returning from long space voyages, NASA scientists recently found that exercising on a trampoline was better than anything else on earth. The human body depends on gravity to function properly and jumping on a bellicon mini trampoline engages the body in a gravitational cycle, while also providing a fun, low-impact workout for everyone from Olympic athletes, to senior citizens, to those who have never exercised before. Unlike other kinds of fitness equipment, including spring-based rebounders and cheap imitations, the bellicon features a custom-formulated, ultra-low-impact bungee suspension system that maximizes workouts, muscle-toning, core-strengthening and cardio-pumping with a single, simple and easy to store device.

Key benefits of working out with the bellicon rebounder include:

  •          Strengthens and tones 638 muscles.
  •          Bolsters the cardiovascular, digestive and lymphatic systems, helping to prevent osteoporosis.
  •          Ultra-elastic bungees remove seven-eighths of the impact on joints.
  •          Reduces back and joint pain.
  •          Strengthens core muscles.
  •          Improves balance and coordination.
  •          Burns more calories than running.

Aside from astronauts, many professional athletes turn to bellicon rebounders to safely and effectively prepare for competition. The US Ski team uses rebounders to train harder without strain and Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah used a bellicon to get back into all-star shape after being injured. While athletes have embraced rebounders, anyone can use a bellicon rebounder to get in shape, lose weight, increase stamina and improve overall health.

bellicon’s Classic and Premium models are the first-ever bungee-based rebounders. They feature unique “bellicon bungees” that are the result of years of development. They are vastly superior to springs and lower quality bungee-based knock-offs:

  •          bellicon Classic
Available in three sizes (39”, 44” and 49”) the bellicon Classic has an elegant black, glossy, powder-coated finish and has been designed for years of reliable service. It can be customized with five bungee colors (black, grey, orange, green and pink) and five mat colors (grey, blue, orange, green and pink), five strengths (soft, medium, strong, x-strong, and ultra), and screw-in or folding legs, which allow for easy storage. $499-$779 (prices vary based on customization).

  •          bellicon Premium
Available in two sizes (44” and 49”) the bellicon Premium has a stainless steel finish, which gives it a beautiful, timeless look and protects it from scratches. It has a high-tech inner thread where the legs meet the frame, making the join firmer and more durable than the already exceptional regular legs. This frame is also largely anti-septic and therefore suitable for clinical practices and hospital use. It can be customized with five bungee colors (black, grey, orange, green and pink) and five mat colors (grey, blue, orange, green and pink), five strengths (soft, medium, strong, x-strong, and ultra), and screw-in or folding legs, which allow for easy storage. $899-$999 (prices vary based on customization).
