Did you ever think it was possible to burn up to 1000 calories per hour and have fun doing it? Believe it or not, there's a way to do just that, simply by jumping on a trampoline.
"I work out about four times a week. This is definitely a little different than your regular workout!" said Dione Gerdes of Sioux Falls.
Different is an understatement when it comes to Sky Robics.
South's Dakota's only trampoline park, Sky Zone, features an hour long fitness program that utilizes trampolines, exercise bands and a series of cross fit style workouts to lose weight.
"It’s going to work a lot of different muscles that have probably never been worked before if you haven't done a class like this," said Jeff Reed, General Manager of Sky Zone.
A drastic change from your regular fitness routine, Sky Robics, taught by highly skilled coaches, has a reputation for helping participants "jump" down to their ideal weight fast, while providing a fun atmosphere at the same time.
“It's great because it's different every time," said Reed. "You don't see the same consistencies. A lot of people do get bored with their workouts and we try and eliminate that here."
The best part is you don't have to be a fitness pro to do something as easy as jump.
"If I did this like four times a week I could be the skinniest girl in town!” said Gerdes.
“What we recommend is that everyone go at their own pace so if you can't do everything the first time don't worry,” explained Reed. "The more you come, keep coming, it's going to allow you to get used to the exercises and be able to do them.”
Sky Zone offers their Sky Robic fitness class six days a week at various times to fit your busy schedule.The classes are $10 each or you can sign up for a monthly membership and your first time is half off.
