OCTOBER 2 TO 4, 2015, Place bonaventure
In the Sports in Motion area, visitors will be able to appreciate performances throughout the weekend.
Extreme trampoline (iSaute) specialists will demonstrate their skills and effective exercises, and will explain the cardiovascular and muscular benefits of trampoline-jumping. Athletes who practise different sports (gymnastics, cheerleading, skiing, snowboarding, basketball, etc.) can improve their performance by the trampoline. It improves balance and muscle tone due to the intense muscle contraction when landing. It flattens the abdomen, develops the thighs, and improves endurance. The stamina involved in a jump is close to that of running a 200-metre sprint and the alternation between a jump and resting time strengthens the heart. Trampoline jumping is also good training for concentration, as one must remain constantly on the alert and in control. At a certain level of difficulty, there also an element of risk that must be managed.
Acrobats and stilt-walkers will demonstrate their art and explain aspects of their work, particularly training and physical demands.
Don't miss their performances, which combine flexibility, strength, and endurance!
