We've received several requests for more evening classes and we listened! We have a brand new class, Jumpboard Reformer Group Class, starting on Mondays from 7-8 pm, Tuesdays 5-6 pm, and Saturdays 10:15-11:15 am and continuing every week afterwards. More schedule updates coming in June.....in the meantime, here is the description of the Jumpboard Reformer class.
The Jumpboard is a fun way to incorporate some cardio and plyometrics into your Pilates routine. The Jumpboard is an attachment that converts a Reformer into a horizontal jumping machine. It attaches to the front of the Reformer where the footbar is. While lying with your back on the carriage you can adjust the spring tension and jump on the board as if it were the floor. The spring tension takes gravity out of the equation, so it feels like you’re jumping on the moon. Jumping on a Refomer is fun, weightless, and graceful. What's not to love?
Jumping takes an incredible amount of core strength and is also a great way to get your body accustomed to plyometrics without having to jump on hard surfaces. The American Council on Exercise advises that forces sustained from jumping onto hard surfaces might equal up to seven times your body weight. In contrast, the jumping on the Jumpboard is done from a horizontal position, which allows you to perform the movements with minimal joint stress.
