Zeal Aerial Fitness will soon offer Michigan’s first ever trainer certified bungee classes. With the help of Grounded Aerial, our trainers have been certified after a 16-hour training program. The goal of introducing bungee fitness to West Michigan is to enhance the community of people who embrace alternative fitness.

Currently, no other gym in the area is offering any sort of bungee fitness.  Our obvious road blocks are lack of equipment as well as educating the population of Grand Rapids on what bungee fitness is. 

When Grounded Aerial hosted our teacher training, they also hosted workshops for the public.  Almost every class was sold out showing us that Grand Rapidians are interested in this type of fitness and would like to add it to their regular work outs.  Zeal has also had consistent inquires about the bungee classes and when they will be starting.

 

Impact

Bungee fitness is a newer form of fitness.  It is low impact on an individuals joints as one is supported by the bungee.  During our teacher training at Zeal, we learned that this is a great form of fitness for everyone, from children to the elderly.  Our trainer recently worked with an entire class over the age of 50.  People who have difficulties walking can also participate in bungee as the apparatus supports them.
Bungee can also be a form of HIIT fitness for those looking for that style.

What I Will Do With $5,000

While this training is AMAZING and will provide great amounts of fun and exercise to you, it is a rather rigorous and expensive agenda to take on.
The break down for the equipment is as follows:
Harnesses - $200 - $300 each x 7 =  $1,400 - $2,100 total
Hard gear -  =  $1000 total
Bungee chords $190 each x 10 = $1,900 total
Any additional money will be spent on marketing for the new classes at Zeal.
With your support, Grand Rapidians can experience the excitement bungee!

About Christina Vandam

Growing up, Christina always wanted to fly. When she moved to Utah for a job, she found a gym that gave her that feeling. She fell in love with Aerial Arts from the minute she stepped up to the mats. Her goal is for everyone to find a form of fitness that they love, that inspires them, and motivates them. “Through aerial fitness, I found a way to truly connect to my soul and I wish to open that door to others and to change the culture and stereotypes around this type of fitness.”
