World Jumping at Tycor Business Park

If you who want a healthier lifestyle but find regular exercise boring "World Jumping" at Tycor Business Park may have the answer for you. Although well known in American and Europe, "Worldjumping" – where participants alternate sets of highly structured low impact/high intensity exercises on individual purpose- built trampolines is still relatively new to Ireland.

"I started jumping in Poland and loved it – it’s great exercise and really good fun" owner Michal told me. Spotting a niche in the market in Ireland, Michal opened up his studio Tycor Business park and is also the Irish distributor for "World Jumping" supplying trampolines and facilitating training instructor courses in Ireland.

The trampolines used in "World Jumping" are octagonal and instead of the usual hard steel springs used with traditional trampolines, the mat is attached to the frame with a custom made rubber belt which softens the impact on the joints during exercise and greatly reduces noise. An attached handrail expands the range of exercises within the programme and also acts as extra security particularly for beginners.

Classes are aimed at all ages and fitness levels. Each session lasts an hour and if the steamy mirrors at the end of the session were anything to go by you can expect to be put through your paces. Worldjumping uses more muscles in one session than any other exercise – expect to burn 800 calories apx. and use a whopping 400 muscles. Aside from weight loss and toning there are numerous health benefits to Worldjumping - reduced blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular disease, beneficial effect on neck and back pain, reduction in the level of cholesterol and triglyceries, and help with incontinence.

Currently open Monday – Thursday 7.30pm – 8.30pm with more classes to come all levels welcome.

Available for group bookings: children’s parties, corporate team building, hen party’s. Tel:085/7888266 , fbook: @WorldJumpingIreland
