Introducing another low-impact modality to our bounti offering: bounti Fly! In the ever-evolving world of fitness, there's always room for innovation that prioritises the well-being of our bodies. We have to keep our bodies always guessing and progressing, which is why it’s important to try different modalities and embrace new challenges! bounti Fly, rooted in the modality of bungee fitness, is your next exciting dynamic step up.

What is Bungee Fitness?

Bungee fitness is a modality that marries elements of dance, aerobics, and acrobatics with the added thrill of being harnessed to bungee cords. Participants wear a specialised harness that is securely attached to bungee cords suspended from the ceiling, allowing you to perform a wide range of movements that are otherwise impossible. With the extra support and resistance, you can do high-flying movements!

From defying gravity with jumps and flips, to perfecting graceful twists and powerful lunges, bungee fitness offers a full-body workout that engages muscles you never knew existed, all while making you feel like you literally could be flying!

The History of Bungee Fitness

While bungee fitness may seem like a recent phenomenon, its roots can be traced back to the early 2000s. The concept originally emerged as a fusion of bungee jumping and dance workouts. It gained popularity in various parts of the world, particularly in countries with a strong dance culture and inclination towards innovative fitness approaches.

Over time, bungee fitness has evolved and adapted to become a low-impact fitness modality that seamlessly blends playfulness with physicality.

The Benefits of Bungee Fitness

  • Low-impact, high-intensity: One of the primary benefits of bungee fitness is its low-impact nature. Unlike many high-intensity workouts that can put undue stress on your joints, bungee fitness utilises the elasticity of the cords to absorb much of the impact. This makes it an ideal exercise choice for people of all fitness levels, including those with joint issues or prior injuries!

  • Core Strength and Balance: bounti Fly engages your core muscles unlike anything else. As you perform various movements while suspended from the bungee cords, your core muscles are constantly working to stabilise your body. Over time, this helps develop better balance and a strong, toned core.

  • Increased Flexibility: The dynamic and fluid movements in bungee fitness routines promote flexibility and agility. Participants often notice significant improvements in their range of motion, which can enhance overall flexibility and reduce the risk of injury in everyday activities!

  • Endorphin Release: Just like any other form of exercise, bungee fitness triggers the release of endorphins, those feel-good hormones that boost your mood and reduce stress. The unique exhilaration of being suspended in the air while performing acrobatic moves amplifies this effect, leaving you with a sense of euphoria and accomplishment!

  • Inversion Benefits: One distinctive aspect of bungee fitness is its incorporation of inversions, where participants are temporarily suspended upside down. This inversion offers a range of benefits, including improved circulation, spinal decompression, and a unique perspective on your workout. Inversions can help relieve back pain, reduce tension, and enhance lymphatic drainage, leading to an overall sense of improved well-being.

  • Fun and Unique Experience: Perhaps one of the most captivating aspects of bungee fitness is the element of fun and uniqueness it brings to your workout routine. It's not just exercise; it's an adventure. The sheer joy of flying through the air and performing acrobatic feats adds an element of excitement and novelty to your fitness journey.

How bounti Fly and Bungee Fitness Aligns with bounti's Philosophy

The bounti’s core principle is our unwavering commitment to restorative, low-impact movement that promotes healing and overall well-being. bounti Fly perfectly encapsulates this philosophy in a profound way...

Gentle on Joints: At its core, bounti Fly is designed to be gentle on the body. Just like our rebounding classes, the bungee cords used in Bounti Fly act as shock absorbers, ensuring that you can engage in a rigorous workout, without putting unnecessary strain on your joints. This aligns perfectly with our mission to offer fitness experiences that are accessible and beneficial to everyone, regardless of their physical condition. 

Holistic Wellness:
bounti's approach to wellness is holistic, encompassing not only physical fitness but also mental and emotional well-being. bounti Fly isn't just about physical exertion; it's an immersive experience that allows participants to temporarily escape from the stresses of everyday life and connect with their bodies on a deeper level. The combination of movement and music creates a sense of mindfulness and presence that is at the heart of bounti's wellness philosophy.
