Fitness director Jen Ator puts some spring in her step.
Bragging to your friends about the trendy new restaurant you just tried? Meh. Filling them in on the fitness scene hotspot where you just sweated? Legit. And Bari Studio in New York City is 💯.
Take it from Women's Health's fitness director Jen Ator, who just hit up the studio's "bounce" cardio trampoline class. While she tried it out, she wore a Fitbit Versa™, the all-new health & fitness smartwatch from Fitbit. The savvy smartwatch tracks your heart rate 24/7, which helps you optimize your calorie burn. Plus it features phone-free music, 15+ exercise modes, and the guided breathing sessions—all with 4+ day battery life*, so you can crush your fitness goals every day. #workoutbuddygoals, anyone?
Ready to start jumping? Here are some tips before takeoff:
Work off the trampoline first. To get used to the motion, start by practicing small hops and stretches on the ground.
Keep your height in check. You don't need to be aiming for the ceiling; the higher you jump, the more prone to injury you'll be, so keep your bounces small.
Control your movements. The trampoline is unstable (oh hello, abs workout), so you should focus on controlled movements. That way, you won't misstep or tweak anything as you go.
