When someone bounces on a JumpSport for the first time, there is a reaction; a feeling of youthfulness and an adrenaline high, like being a kid again. One can’t help but feel energized while jumping on a rebounder and the stress from the day dissipates. Jumpers especially who carry extra weight report a feeling of low impact and ease on the joints making it a workout they want to return to.
“When we do activity that makes us feel good- that makes us feel youthful- we do it and we do it again, and again which is exactly what’s needed to make the best impact.”- Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford
So when Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford found JumpSport and experienced our fitness trampoline, it was a product she could easily recommend and apply to all her patients; young children to active aging adults.
For Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, it is important to peel away obesity bias in medicine and popular culture. She is passionate about building up her patients and removing the stigma that is often associated with exercising or what her patients feel they can or can’t achieve. Dr. Cody Stanford states that “when looking at using tools for fitness, it is especially important we want something that can really affect and impact as many parts of the population as possible.”
The JumpSport Fitness trampoline is easy on the joints but still allows for the high intensity workout she recommends to her patients, and to anyone really on their weight loss and self-care journey. There are many different exercises available but the key is to find one that you’ll come back to and feel comfortable and safe doing over and over. Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford will continue recommending JumpSport to her patients. So get out and get jumping… Dr.’s orders!
