Bungee Fitness 55+
The Bungee Fitness system was designed by a trauma surgeon to treat his patients immediately following surgery to prevent muscle atrophy. The exercises target more than just muscles – the fascia gets a dynamic workout as well. It takes 12-18 months to build new soft tissue so working out in manners that challenges elastic fiber growth is extremely important, especially when we reach an age that tends to decline in muscle and collagen manufacturing. When the body is challenged in controlled, dynamic movements the body rises to the challenge and builds stronger tissue fibers according to Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Gharavi.
A body doesn’t just need to fire the muscles while you are doing a workout – it needs to know how to fire when you are moving through everyday life. Challenging and stimulating muscle coordination on the Bungee gives instant feedback to the neuromuscular system. This is neuroplasticity in the realm of fitness! Whether you are searching for a class because of age-related issues or recovering from injury, this is a great class to continue building range of motion safely with varying degrees of weight-bearing. Remember that the Bungee was designed by a trauma surgeon, and Justina works directly with him creating lesson plans to keep you in safe, strong, and lively.
When one part of the body is not working properly, other parts of the body either become weaker or overworked which can cause pain and/or injuries. The Bungee Fitness workout targets more than just muscles – fascia gets a dynamic workout as well. Remember when the medical industry thought you couldn’t retrain the brain? Well, exercise philosophies have changed, too. Elastic quality exercises build strong elastic fiber growth in all kinds of tissues in the body. Controlling movement leads to better body mechanics and the Bungee provides instant feedback. The fitness world won’t ever be the same again so come be one of the first people to try out Bungee Fitness and be part of the cutting edge changes occurring in the industry now.
