It’s sunny and in the 70’s here in South Florida, and people are flying from all over the country, no less than the globe, to participate in ECA Thrive in Fort Lauderdale at the Harbor Beach Hotel, November 10-13, 2011!
It was one year ago that the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline™ debuted its product and innovative trampoline training to the ECA community in Miami. This curious new piece of equipment drew a lot of attention. The kick off began with a pool side demonstration lead by master instructor, Michelle Hanlon-Mascari. Crowds gathered towards the hive of trampolines and the party was started!
During the conference, instructors Abbie Appel and Michelle Hanlon-Mascari taught a new style of trampoline training consisting of a smoother bounce and an exhilarating new way of not only providing cardiovascular training but also strength, balance, and core. Pictures from the classes illustrate both the joy and the challenge of working out on the JFT. Where one participant sported a look of intensity on his face, another wore a toothy smile bearing her exaltation.
It has only been a year but the interest in trampoline training and in JumpSport in particular has grown by leaps and bounds. The facebook page for JumpSport Fitness Trampoline™ has 5,000 likes, and growing! The product has been featured in newspapers, magazines, and international television stations. What does this all mean to you? With the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline, ECA Thrive, 2011 is going to totally ROCK!
Beginning Thursday, November 10th from 5-6pm, Abbie Appel will be teaching “TNT: Trampoline N’ Tubing”. This class will feature a fusion of using the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline with the brilliant addition of resistance bands! On Friday, November 11th, master instructor, Krista Popwych will be teaching two classes: “JumpSport Total Body” from 8-9:15am and “High Intensity Trampoline Training” from 11:30-12:30 (think tabata style training on the trampoline!). On Saturday, November 12th from 11:30-12:30, Michelle Hanlon-Mascari will teach “JumpSport Cardio”.
