Be part of the first official Bungee Fitness classes to be held in Canada, flying through the air like superman, jumping like a frog or swinging from a 20 foot ceiling. Bring back the playfulness and FUN to working out. Bungee Fitness is a workout that challenges all the muscles dynamically to meet the demands of sports and also meet the demands of everyday movements. Muscles are trained to move faster and independently from each other efficiently. This prevents injury and creates a balanced body. Whether an athlete or not, everybody can experience full range, spring-like movements. It is simple, comfortable, effective, easy on the joints and fun!
The Bungee system was originally invented to help rehab a professional athlete by the name of Anastasia Zueva. She was told by doctors to immobilize the knee and put no weight on the leg which protects the injury but also leads to atrophy of many muscles and normal movement firing patterns. With the objective of providing effective and targeted therapy, her physician, Dr. Gharavi designed a device that would control load and mobilization restrictions but at the same time allow the patient to facilitate the development of performance. A philosophy based on movement to prevent muscles from atrophy, not on restricting movement. With the help of the Bungee, she returned to competing and won the title of world champion, even setting a new world record.
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.
