The holiday season is a great time to relax and enjoy being with your family. The downside to all of these festivities is that pretty much everyone with a normal metabolism gains weight, sometimes as much as 10 pounds in a 2-week break. Naturally, this leads to thousand of New Year’s resolutions that probably mention either losing weight or exercising more. As an owner of a mini trampoline you already know all the health benefits it can offer. You no doubt will want to incorporate it into your workout routine for the new year. We’ve got some tips on how to keep that resolution to loose weight by using a rebounder.
Keep Track/Write it Down
First off, if you are serious about keeping your fitness resolutions you need to get a small notebook and a pen. Write down what you want to ultimately accomplish, then break that down into week-by-week portions. This will help make your goals feel more attainable, increasing your motivation. Then write down every mini trampoline exercise that you do in on a that small notebook you bought. Then, you can see if you are slipping in any area, or simply develop new routines to work on. Keeping track of your fitness levels, exercise routines and even what you are eating can motivate you and help you lose weight fast.
Mix It Up
While exercising with a mini trampoline can be thrilling, the real key to losing weight is to mix different exercises together to form unique and fun mini trampoline workout routines. Not only can mixing different exercises keep you focused and entertained, it can also give you more motivation to continue working out. Nobody wants to just do the same exercises over and over again, so mixing it up can make a real difference.
Another great tip that you can use to stay motivated are to get a full length mirror and put it in front of your mini trampoline. Exercising with a mirror in front of you serves several important purposes. First, it can help you see if your form is good or bad, which can save you from injury or a simply bad workout. Second, if you can see yourself while you are working out, you can actually see how hard you are working and what type of effect it has on your body, which reinforces positive feelings regarding your mini trampoline exercise routines. Lastly, every week you workout you will be able to stand in front of the mirror and literally see your fitness resolution in action. All of these can help you stick to your fitness plans.
The Great Outdoors
Exercising on your mini trampoline while outdoors, if weather permits of course, is also a great way to stay motivated and have fun while losing weight. Not only does being outdoors simply make people want to be more active, but it also means that any breaks you take won’t be within easy access of a couch or a refrigerator. Working out while outside can also be useful when you are working out with a friend on your mini trampoline. Indoor trampoline exercises can’t really be done with friends, but while outdoors, it becomes a great way to incorporate fun friendly mini trampoline games like basketball or football into your workout routines. Simply having a friend join into your fitness routines, or even develop fun new ones with you, is a great way to stay motivated.
Ultimately, the goal is to keep yourself motivated and keep your workouts fun. With a mini trampoline, both of these tasks become easier, but it still takes a bit of creativity in order to make sure your fitness goals last throughout the year.
