BIOptimizers - Awesome Health Podcast

Apr 7, 2022

Does your fitness routine give you the opportunity to consciously express yourself and your emotions? Aly Giampolo and Colette Dong are here to talk about how using a trampoline with the influence of dance can help you get out of the stagnation of the executive dealings with your days.

Through their professional dance career, they discovered the trampoline is a satisfying high intensity, low impact option for fitness. As they experienced the positive impact this had on their personal bodies and minds, they have created a method that shares the lasting benefits of rebounding with their community.

In this episode you will learn:

  • The physiological benefits of trampoline work
  • The benefits of low impact exercise paired with high intensity
  • The importance of proprioception in your day-to-day activities (proprioception: the awareness of the position and movement of the body)
  • How dance and movement impact your mood and mental health
  • The way movement fitness methods help relieve stress in the body

It’s not about monotony

Colette says, “Fitness can include all of the different states of being that your body takes on and the different moods that you enter.”

This program recognizes that your body doesn’t always have the same need or the same workout, and so a variety of movements are used to help ground yourself in your state for that day. When you workout you also want to have mental engagement along with your physical engagement.

Trampolines may be a small surface, but they allow you to be so dynamic even in a low impact, high intensity space.

“You’re getting this big dynamic movement that encompasses every piece of you,” says Aly.

Taking the time to tune into your body and achieve clarity through movement while disconnecting from distractions brings euphoric moments.

A Valuable Pathway of Life

Movement is inherent to all human beings. When you’re doing this work, your body is there for you so there’s nothing to fear when you work on remaining connected to your body. You can boost your mood and find an engaging way to make progress and celebrate your accomplishments. And you can do it in community.

“We want them to know that it’s not an easy thing to do on your own. We understand that it’s vulnerable. We see and we hear you. And all those components are pushing people to find this happiness, find this joy, and it just enlightens them.”

The act of rebounding on the trampoline echos the ability of our body to rebound from strain, and our brain’s ability to rebound from struggle. When you realize your body is experiencing something different, it’s exciting and important.

From the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, this episode will energize and inspire you to move wherever you are, to a better method of health.
