If your fall fitness goals involve yet another creative workout inspired by your favorite childhood activities, allow us to introduce you to Jumping Fitness. Founded in the Czech Republic and already a major hit throughout Europe, the trampoline-fueled routine is now invading America with its first US studio in Redondo Beach.
The 1,000-square-foot gym promises a workout that's "three times more effective than jogging [as a result of] constant gravitational changes, which involve more than 400 muscles being tightened and relaxed at the same time." Translation: expect 55 minutes of fast and slow jumps, aerobics, and sprints on specially-developed Profi trampolines, resulting in a core-strengthening, fat-melting workout designed to burn up to 1,000 calories. Intense, yo.
As far as pricing, single classes are $19 (first sesh is free), 5- to 20-class packages are $70 to $300, and unlimited memberships range from $100 to to $120 per month.
