There’s still time to get an in-ground trampoline this year and use it! If you’re considering getting an in-ground trampoline for your family for the holidays, here is a short list on how to buy a trampoline and what to think about when you’re making up your mind.

  1. The health benefits of rebounding are numerous. Detoxification, reducing blood pressure, helping with weight loss, stress release.
  2. It’s unique because weightlessness and defying gravity are great for stimulating your lymph system.
  3. Rebounding — that’s what jumping on a trampoline is called — strenghtens bones and muscles and helps you get a well-toned body without putting stress on your bones and joints.

There are many types of trampolines from which to choose and here are a few:

  • Round, square and rectangle.
  • They come in various sizes
  • Mini-trampolines can be used indoors or outdoors and are light enough to move from one location to another.
  • A water trampoline is one that is submerged and that you can jump on while being surrounded by water.
  • Above ground trampoline — if you can live with the unsightly fence and the structure obstructing the view in your backyard.
  • In-ground trampolines. They are beautiful, safer, cost effective and don’t take away from any of the beauty of your landscaped yard.

If you’re considering getting an in-ground trampoline for your family, give us a call and let’s talk about the many other benefits of exercising on an in-ground trampoline and how much safer they are compared to other styles. We’re sure you’ll agree that an in-ground trampoline will better fit your lifestyle and the aesthetics of your home.

What Muscles Benefit From Rebounding?

You know that jumping on an in-ground trampoline is fun but have you ever wondered what muscles benefit from rebounding? The answer may surprise you — a LOT of them!

When you jump on a trampoline, also known as rebounding, you are reaping many health benefits — you’re getting healthy, you’re working your legs and your cardio vascular system, you are working on your balance and you’re just having fun!

What Muscles Benefit From Rebounding?

  1. Your abs. When you jump and land you need to tighten your stomach muscles to keep your balance. When you do this, and when you truly concentrate on doing this you are strengthening your ab muscles. Will you get six-pack abs from a rebounding workout? Maybe, maybe not, but you will have fun trying!
  2. Legs, thighs, and butt. Jumping helps strenghten your muscles and when you’re jumping and keeping your balance you’re working and tightening those muscles and your glutes.
  3. Arms. Swing your arms when you jump. It will help give you lift off and will also give them a bit of a work out. Add hand weights if you want extra resistance.
  4. Your heart and lungs. If you’re constantly in motion, you’re getting healthier with every jump. Your heart and your lungs will thank you for it.

A major benefit of using a trampoline as a workout device, is that you won’t be putting any stress or strain on your muscles or joints and that is ideal for sufferers of joint pain. Running or jogging puts stress and strain and can cause you to be in pain once the workout is done. Rebounding means you’re landing on a soft surface and therefore aren’t jarring your joints. It’s a great low impact workout.  If you’re loolking for a way to get in shape and not cause an injury or if you’re recovering from an injury, jumping on an in-ground trampoline might be just what the doctor ordered.
