You'll Never Believe Where Eva Longoria Just Did Her Latest Trampoline Workout
If anyone knows how to have fun while breaking a serious sweat, it's Eva Longoria. Case in point? Her latest Instagram video, in which she's pretty much doing Zumba on a trampoline...on a yacht (yes, yacht)...with a backdrop so beautiful, you'll be packing your bags to join her within seconds of watching the clip.
ICYMI, the former Desperate Housewives star has been getting a jump (pun intended) on summer fun by soaking up the sun with her 2-year-old son Santi in what appears to be a total seaside paradise. And after two headline-making bathing suit shots over the weekend, Longoria took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a slightly different peek into her vacation routine. In an undeniably joyful video, Longoria can be seen jumping on her beloved trampoline while a cover of Cyndi Lauper's hit "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" plays in the background.

"Sisterhood of the...traveling trampoline 😂☀️," she wrote in the caption, to which she received some seriously hilarious responses from a few stars-slash-friends.
"That was the original title!!! And then someone was like, that's a higher shipping fee, let's go with pants," commented America Ferrara.
But even the most clever of celeb comments can't take away from the mesmerizing bouncing routine Longoria shared on her 'grid. In the clip, she can be seen making her tramp session into a full-body workout by incorporating arm movements, cross kicks, high knees, and even a few opposite toe-hand touches. All of these simple equipment-free moves are stellar for strengthening your hand-eye coordination and, in doing so, challenging both your mind and body.
Since jumping on the trampoline workout bandwagon back in November, Longoria has continued to share her love for joint-friendly exercise with fans. You'll find more than a few fierce Instagram posts on her feed featuring what she calls the "Rolls Royce of trampolines" — aka the JumpSport 350 (Buy It, $369, target.com) — and how she incorporates the gymnastics-inspired gadget in her usual workout routine. In the past (you know, when she's not sweating at sea), Longoria has used her beloved tramp for stability while doing lunges and even hopped aboard with ankle weights to amp up the intensity.
And while her bouncing obsession might come off a little strong to some, the exercise trampoline hype is legit. In fact, working out on a tramp can challenge just about every muscle in your body without putting too much stress on your joints. Research from the American Council on Exercise also found it to impressively improve your cardiorespiratory fitness and burn nearly as many calories as running at a 10-minute-mile pace.

Sadly, it's hard to offer up suggestions on how to score a spot on a celeb-approved yacht. But it's a whole lot easier to help you snag a similar workout style to Longoria's matching tan bra and leggings combo. Try: Alo's Moto Legging (Buy It, $110, aloyoga.com) in Gravel/Gravel Glossy paired with the brand's Airlift Intrigue Bra (Buy It, $54, aloyoga.com) also in Gravel. And if you close your eyes really tight, you might just be able to see yourself sweating out at sea too.
