This New EDM-Trampoline Workout Cult is Absurd…
A couple months ago, this video started circulating the web of some women doing a trampoline workout to Mercer & Alvaro's festival anthem, "Welcome To The Jungle," featuring Lil Jon.
Seems like fun, and looks like you get a solid workout from it. But after some investigation, turns out it's totally a cult.
Jumping Fitness, the company behind this workout fad, was founded in Europe in 2001, and spread throughout the world, including North America. It's basically Jazzercize meets EDM, and it's weird... and a little scary. In the 'about' section on their website, they state:
"Jumping® is a dynamic fitness training system, conducted on specially developed Jumping® PROFI trampolines. Jumping® was born of the idea of developing a training program, that would considerably strengthen bodyand mind while keeping fun in mind.
The basis of Jumping® is a combination of fast and slow jumps, variations of traditional aerobic steps, dynamic sprints and ”power sports” elements. The complexity of the exercises guarantees that one’s whole body will be strengthened.
Jumping® is three times more effective than jogging. This is due to the constant gravitational changes, which involve more than 400 muscles being tightened and relaxed at the same time. Far more than is the case with most other types of endurance sports."

To further support their unique workout culture, they recruited the German dance group you've probably never heard of, Scooter, who somehow linked up with Wiz Khalifa for the Jumping Fitness anthem, "Bigroom Blitz." The video features those "Jumping Addicts" in action. Wiz Khalifa's appearance in the music video? As a mouth on a titty. It's best to just not ask questions at this point.
Let the masterful lyrics of Scooter accompanied by obnoxious electro-house drops take you away.
It's only a matter of time before these trampoline-jumping, Wiz Khalifa-titty worshippers invade your neighborhood. Check out these psychos in action in the gallery above.
