Boogie Bounce is a complete exercise programme on mini trampoline, with a safety T-Bar Handle, choreographed to an eclectic mix of tracks from across the Decades. Boogie Bounce delivers a full body cardio workout that is suitable for everyone, all ages, shapes and sizes.

Boogie Bounce uses High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T) techniques to maximise the most effective fat burning process in the cardio section, whilst using the pliable surface of the mat to perform a range of core stability exercises.
