Getting trampoLEAN with AIRobics at Airheads

January 31, 2013 at 6:02 am

Thanks to my friend Jess of Cuban Running Crisis, I had the opportunity to try out a trampoline fitness class at Airheads Trampoline Arena in Tampa today.

I tried a trampoline fitness class at Fitbloggin’ and even though that was on small, individual trampolines, I knew that this class was going to be no joke.

Airheads has some awesome logo designers!

The facility is obviously geared towards kids and has a large game area and concessions.

Speaking of concessions, they had a nice continental breakfast laid out for us upon our arrival.

I met up with a few of my blogger friends…

and we couldn’t wait to start bouncing.

We were there to sweat and this was our torture chamber:

We started off with just some basic jumping, getting used to the trampolines.

It seems like the trampoline would do some of the work for you, but it only takes about thirty seconds of bouncing before you feel your heart rate climbing.

We did lunges…

It was a really tough workout, but so fun.

We took a couple of breaks to catch our breath and the nice folks at Airheads offered us chilled towels!

Here’s Jenny with our awesome instructors, Kim and Frankie:

Finally we’re done and we stretch.

The workout was really challenging and really fun.

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-46

I think we all had a blast.

Thank you to Rich Heruska, one of the founders of Airheads, for having the Tampa Bay Bloggers over to bounce today!

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-50

Rich was a really nice guy.

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-51

He gave us a bunch of free passes to Airheads to give to our readers! So I have two pairs to give away…

My Facinating Life Caroline Calcote-100

I’m going to pick two winners, one pair of tickets for each winner.

These passes can be redeemed for a whole session of open jumping or for a fitness class. One for you and a friend! I promise you this will be a fun workout and you’ll burn tons of calories. My friend Jenny’s heart rate monitor said she burned 600 calories!

You can use the passes at any of the Airheads locations:

They also have an option to have a child bounce in a partitioned area while you do a fitness class! So you could use one ticket for you and one ticket for your child. Just leave a comment indicating that you are interested in bouncing and sweating, and I’ll have Mack draw a name out of a bowl on Sunday, February 3rd. If I remember.

[Update: This contest is now closed and the winners have been notified. Congratulations Kim and Christina!]
