Aperçu des protections

Les matelas d'aujourd'hui

Les tapis de gymnase étaient autrefois conçus à être exclusif à la gymnastique européenne, puis importés en Amérique au début du 19ième siècle. Ils ont depuis évolués, adapté au 21ième siècle et à un mélange de mode de vie sain avec des doses d'athlétisme régulière. Les matelas de gymnase étaient autrefois de lourdes planches capitonnées qui ont été remplacé pour être maintenant de légères surfaces lisses que l'on peut retrouver dans les studios de remise en forme modernes. La tendance à se remettre en forme a émergé dans les années 80 et a déclenché chez les gens une recherche d'un physique athlétique. Cette tendance a été en mouvement constant afin de cibler un public diversifié en expansion. Les marques courantes de conditionnement physique incorporent des programmes à proportions variables de force et d'endurance équipé de degré d'intensité flexible. Ces programmes, tels que les entraînements fractionnés à haute intensité (appelé aussi HIIT), la musculation avec charges (Body Weight), les camps d'entrainement, les entraînements à formation croisée, s'adressent et s'appliquent à tout les âges, tout les niveaux de compétences et toutes les capacités athlétiques.
