New York, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Bored with the gym? Avoiding certain exercises due to past injury? Plateauing when working out? World-renowned fitness guru Mario Godiva introduces Plyo Dance™, a new and fun technique that uses rebound sport shoes, such as Kangoo Jumps, and fuses plyometrics, core, conditioning and dance in a single fitness regimen. Burning more calories in less time, Plyo Dance™ is a high-intensity, low-impact exercise that reduces the majority of the shock to the knees and joints while participants jump, glide and learn exhilarating dance moves. Even those with past injuries can usually join a Plyo Dance™ class.
Designed for all ages and fitness levels – from the beginner to the seasoned athlete – Plyo Dance™, set to Top 40 dance remixes, incorporates plyometrics, rebounding, Self-Propulsion Technique™ and Recurrent Interval Training™ to incinerate fat, build muscular strength and endurance, increase cardiovascular power, and improve balance, coordination, agility and flexibility.
Rebound exercise, called ‘68% more efficient than jogging’ by NASA, is a low-impact exercise involving gliding up and down on one or two legs variously moving all parts of the body; Self-Propulsion Technique™* is the act of pushing down to go up and controlling the return energy of the rebound effect on a trampoline type of shoe to achieve desired jump height; and Recurrent Interval Training™** doesn't follow the traditional "bell-shaped curve" or traditional interval training guidelines and involves constant starts, stops and turns to maximize the cardio workout. All three types of exercise are founded in science and, together with plyometrics, provide both beginners and athletes with an exceptional fitness routine that will strengthen and tone your body while losing weight.
“Many people view fitness as hard or boring, but Plyo Dance™ is extremely easy and so much fun, you’ll be smiling the entire class,” said Plyo Dance™ founder and fitness expert Mario Godiva. “Plyo Dance™ gives you all the benefits of Plyometrics without the risk of injury while reshaping your body. It's dynamic, innovative, correlates with science, and is completely different than any other fitness programs that use rebound sport shoes. You can burn up to 50 percent more calories and get fit without the shock to your joints as we rebound up to 8,000 times an hour.”
Plyo Dance™ is a full body workout that includes both aerobic and anaerobic exercises. Plyo Dance™ classes are available in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and internationally in Bucharest, Romania and Amsterdam. Classes will soon be added in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Genova, Italy, and in Madrid and Valencia, Spain.
