It’s unclear as to when hammocks were first used for exercise purposes, but we do know the concept as a whole was first conceived over 1,000 years ago. The original purpose was not for chilling out or taking part in aerial hammock classes, but rather offering people protection against insects when based in tropical environments. Since then, hammocks have become a common feature across gyms, gardens and hotels for a variety of purposes.
What is Aerial Hammock?
Aerial hammock is another great exercise based above the ground, offering you the opportunity to decompress your spine and increase your flexibility. During most programs, you’ll be working on core fitness, yoga and a variety of tricks which all aim to bolster your physique. When elevated in the air, you can work on building your muscles with a selection of movements not typically possible when exercising on the ground. You’ll also be able to generate lots of adrenaline which can help you feel a lot better about yourself. When you’re stressed out, turning to this form of exercise can be an effective way to brush aside tension and anxiety before this builds up further.
How Much Weight Can Aerial Hammock Hold?
So long as your ceiling is constructed with the required solidity, you should be able to support up to 3,000 lbs, so no limits really in terms of weight. It’s vitally important that any equipment has been secured correctly, since falling from great heights can be dangerous, especially if you’re moving into upside down positions during your exercise routines.
