Health Benefits: Weight Management
Two thirds of all Americans are overweight. Main reasons: too much food and too little exercise. The problem: Whatever we put in has to be metabolized. The only way to control weight is to:
1. Eat less and 2. Exercise more
The challenge: most people don’t want to eat less. Given this, how is it possible to help our bodies burn more fat?
Exercise on the bellicon stimulates your circulation. Your heart beats faster in order to accommodate your muscles’ additional demand for oxygen. The metabolic rate in your muscles increases. In effect, your “inner factory” starts working. Believe it or not, a gentle workout that ramps up and down slowly is actually better for losing weight than a “power” training session.
“Getting into gear” slowly and gently releases an enzyme in your muscle cells that is responsible for splitting open fat cells and converting their contents into energy. During a strenuous workout, this fat-to-energy conversion is inhibited by the build-up of acids that actually prevent fat from being burned. So, forget those brutal exercise sessions that leave you drenched in sweat and totally wrung out! All they’re doing is burning carbohydrates and helping you preserve fat.
What Ever Happened to Having Fun?
The bellicon is a fun! This is why long-term exercise success is possible. bellicon users hang in there for the long haul, and lasting results are their reward.
Don’t Expect Miracles—Patience Required!

Exercise the bellicon way is not difficult because the elastic bungees do half of the work for you. This is easy on your muscles. This isn’t body-building. It’s body-shielding, and it’s a key to weight-loss success. Since exercising on the bellicon is so enjoyable, you can look forward to a fitness program that is consistent, long-term, and fruitful. And simply because it’s fun. Staying active and having fun while doing it – this keeps you moving forward!
No Weight-Gain Spiral Here
Let’s face it: the heavier you are, the tougher it is to lose weight. It’s a cruel fact that the people who most need to exercise are the ones who are least able to do it. It’s simply hard to move at all when gravity is dragging you down every step of the way! What you need is something that will enable you to get started on a path to recovery despite your current weight. This is where the bellicon shines. It puts those extra pounds to work, using them to push you down into its mat with total ease. The mat brings you back up. You feel light! Your weight does part of the work for you!
When you’re on the bellicon, you no longer notice your weight. The effect is similar to water, but more comfortable. When you reach the top of your bounce, and that brief moment of weightlessness, you can forget all those extra pounds and their burden on you. After your workout, you feel refreshed, strengthened, and revitalized. Your body will thank you: gentle exercise, metabolism boost, and some fat burned off. But the most important thing is that you do this a little bit every day. It all adds up! You can feel it.
Physical Activity Curbs Hunger
A prominent professor, Dr. Richard Rost of Colgne,says, “People who work out in a gentle way are less likely to want a large meal afterwards. This is a really practical side effect.
