Super Fitness Weight Loss Challenge competitors take on a bouncy workout at Urban Air

Super Fitness Weight Loss Challenge participants bounced their way through a Feb. 4 event at Urban Air.

TOLEDO, Ohio — Super Fitness Weight Loss Challenge participants are halfway through this year's event and met up Saturday, Feb. 4, for a fun challenge at Urban Air in south Toledo.

Host Kelly Heidbreder had the group of more than 60 people bouncing their way through a fun challenge that also tested their fitness.

“It is really important to keep our challengers motivated,” she said. “This is the point in our challenge where many of them are hitting a plateau and may not be seeing big results on the scale. I like to push them out of their box a bit to keep them active.”

Challenge participants worked their way through an obstacle course built among the Urban Air trampolines, which included dodging rotating arms, shooting basketballs, doing incline push-ups, running and jumping as fast as possible among 14 trampolines.

“This might sound easy, but they have to bounce hard, to jump quickly to the next trampoline. If they just walk from surface to surface, they will get far behind,” said Brent Hemelgarn, Super Fitness manager.

Urban Air manager Noah Stimpson welcomed the Super Fitness Weight Loss group to explore a new, bouncy workout.

"I am really impressed to see how many challengers followed Kelly Heidbreder here this early in the morning," he said. "What a way to get the month of February started.” 

 “This was an incredible challenge," Stimpson said. "We are proud to be a part of it. All of these challengers worked really hard, and it was great to see them having fun.”

The Super Fitness Challenge participants will head to Owens Community College in March for the firefighter challenge.
