Jump classes utilize the Reformer Jump board in an interval based class. Jump classes have a “cardio” aspect because the participant is jumping, however, since it’s done in a horizontal position the heart rate typically stays in the fat-burning zone. This type of jumping doesn’t create the same pressure on the spine, pelvis or knees like vertical jumping and is packed full of fun.
