College students are getting really high — on the trampolines at Rebounderz in Sterling, Va.

Recently, the indoor arena started teaching intense classes in how to get mega air and do awesome tricks.

George Mason University student Christina Slakey’s boyfriend first brought her to the class as a surprise. Slakey, a 21-year-old studying Global Affairs, considers herself an active person but was not prepared for this work-out.

“At first, I thought it was going to be an easy and fun trip, but after I jumped for 15 minutes, I literally thought my heart was going to explode,” she said.

Classes run for one hour but after the first ten minutes, you’ll more than likely be drenched in sweat.

Despite feeling like she was about to have a heart attack, Slakey loved the tricks she learned and the burn from the workout she felt for the next several days.

“After two classes I was doing double back flips like a champ,” she says.

And classes only cost $12 a session.

Slakey’s boyfriend warned her not to eat or drink much before they arrived, which was advice she wished she had listened to.

“They were pushing me so hard to do two back flips in a row, but I kept messing up. Finally after 10 flips in a row, I was able to pull it off. But as soon as I landed, I had to run off and puke into a trashcan,” she says. “I ruined some poor family’s photo.”

If you want to try something far more extreme than your neighbor’s backyard trampoline, sign up for a class.

“All the throw up aside, this is one of the best discoveries I’ve made in my time at Mason,” Slakey says. “I would recommend it to everyone…except people who get queasy easily.”
