Inside jumpga’s Super-secret Studio
The Home Fitness Take-Away
THE STUDIO (nominated for a London lifestyle award) is located on one of the least glamorous roads in Fulham SW6. By-invitation-only access, it is an intimate workout space without a treadmill or the usual gym equipment. The only real evidence of its existence is the sweaty bodies posted on Instagram. Few small businesses can claim to have reached the world’s best spas, used by world champion athletes and Captains of industry, and without any advertising: all by word of mouth.
The studio is in what was once a toy shop and has two levels; a small kitchen at mezzanine-level where smoothies and juices are served, and a lower ground floor for working out. It is not about the latest butt-sculpting workout for glutes of steel or being a Health club with royalty and A-list celebs for members. The distinction is the adopted Guru/Student yogic teaching approach that dates back thousands of years – to educate and provide a JUMPGA experience that can be easily replicated at home.

“JUMPGA: why yoga on a rebounder isn’t as silly as it sounds (especially if you’re over 40)”
By Madelieine Howell Telegraph newspaper
“WHATEVER NEXT? You might well ask, rolling your eyes as you learn of a new fusion fitness fad from a breathless convert. But hear me out: JUMPGA – the new yoga and trampolining hybrid might be the one for you.
There’s cardiovascular exercise, balance work, strength-building and stretching. Crucially, the elasticity of the rebounder (mini trampoline to you and I) also affords greater mobility – the ability to move freely, without pain or discomfort.
But could it really be the answer to walking up and down the stairs without a handrail to a ripe old age?
The first segment of the class is a cardiovascular blast in the form of jumping moves on the rebounder, with dumbbells in hand. To heighten the intensity, you have to sort of push downwards on your heels, rather than try to jump into the air.
There’s already an element of balance going on here, and at full throttle it’s enough to leave me gasping for air and working up a sweat. The yoga element is made all the more gloriously de-stressing, thanks to the intense cardio blitz that precedes it.”
“JUMPGA is Next Level Fitness”

Champney’s Wellness Director
CHAMPNEY’S (UK’s most iconic spa) Wellness Director, Louise Day says: “I see more fitness choices available than ever before. HIIT or resistance workouts? Calisthenics or spin? Wellness or mindfulness? Group fitness classes have evolved markedly in recent years, and this is reflected in the wide range of group classes we offer. JUMPGA outperformed Spinning when guests compared fitness data using a ‘Fitbit Blaze’ (health performance watch and app). The results showed that during the 20-minute cardio component of JUMPGA the Peak Zone (high-intensity exercise zone) level can be as much as five times longer than a Spinning class.
JUMPGA is a fantastic YOGA hybrid fitness programme that gives our guest something they can replicate at home. It’s demanding and fun, quite simply it is a total body training programme taking exercise to a new level: easily adapted to all ages and levels of fitness”.
‘JUMPGA training at Home is brilliant because it is so convenient. Did you know that 20-minutes on a rebounder is the equivalent of jogging for an hour! I’ve spoken in the past about treating your body with respect, and the JUMPGA program does just that. Exercising shouldn’t just work up a sweat, they should be safe, go easy on the joints and enjoyable, JumpGa did all of those things.’
SCIENCE IS ON JUMPGA’S side because research shows that you can get away with a ‘less is more’ approach when it comes to exercise.
McMaster University scientists researched interval training, which is short bursts of high-intensity exercise followed by periods of either rest or lower-intensity work. They looked at the minimum amount a person can get away with when it comes to interval training for health purposes.
Based on their results the JUMPGA (express) workout takes 10 minutes, with only one minute being high intensity: 3×20 second bouts of high intensity cardio.
This means that a total of 10 minutes spent exercising will boost a person’s health and fitness, increase cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and focus.
A lot of people spend more time at the gym because they think it’s better for them. They read a magazine while on the stationary bike; they jog while watching TV and lift weights at a moderate level for 30-60 minutes. Yet they are actually doing very little to actively increase their level of fitness.
The JUMPGA EXPRESS programme is a totally new way to look at fitness. Because people are more likely to stick with an exercise program when they don’t have to spend hours in the gym to burn fat and build muscle.
‘The fun and effectiveness of JUMPGA at home is that there’s no sad trudge to the gym because the gym is now in your house. And giving the gift of fitness to the family will be the gift of better health (and a lot more sweat) that keeps on giving for them. JUMPGA is becoming very popular and everyone wants a rebounder in their home for good reason.’

‘THE SENSATIONAL NEW YOGA FITNESS HYBRID’
USING THE REBOUNDER as a prop during yoga sequences enables you to feel the benefits of the postures regardless of your level of flexibility, age or physical condition. It can help you access postures you might not otherwise be able to do. It will help modify the poses as you learn the fundamentals of yoga. Placing your hand on the rebounder in the Half Moon pose, for example, can help you to lengthen the spine and deepen the stretch. Similarly, lying on the rebounder can strengthen your lumbar spine in poses like Bridge.
JumpGa will prove to be the most powerful form of movement: a complete holistic cycle – from ecstatic jumping expression to the quiet meditative state of savasana. Physically, it produces molecular changes in muscle similar to going for a long run and lifting weights, thus it provides the same fitness benefits of prolonged endurance training but in much less time.
THE WORLD’S BEST AT HOME FITNESS PROGRAMME
CONVENIENCE IS THE KEY to fitness success. It’s almost too easy to come up with excuses to skip the gym. Regular exercise is essential for physical health but knowing this may still not be enough motivation to get people moving.
Researchers from the University of Georgia studied a group of home exercisers doing low- or moderate-intensity exercise three times per week for 6 weeks. At study completion, they reported a 20% increase in energy levels and a 65% decrease in feelings of fatigue (Flowers & O’Connor 2008).
Rebounding is an easy way to get more exercise – without really trying. Why not rebound while you prepare for your day. Brushing your hair or your teeth, can be easily done on a rebounder to turn these daily rituals into low-key workout. Simply gentle bouncing while you do them. If you’re feeling awake enough, maybe even try some squats. Because two minutes of teeth brushing + two minutes of squats on a rebounder = 22 calories burned
Only make phone calls at home on rebounder. A 20-minute call while rebounding at a moderate pace will burn about 110 calories. (calculation applies to a woman who weighs 61kg).
