Ease Into Workouts On A Trampoline After An Injury

Did you suffer a sports injury? Were you running or jogging or biking or hiking and overdo it and now you’re injured? We have tips on how you can ease into workouts on a trampoline after an injury.

Before you start anything — especially after an injury — you want to talk with your doctor and let him or her know what your plans are and see if it’s safe enough for you to partake.

Ease Into Workouts On A Trampoline After An Injury

Jumping on a trampoline is a great way to stay active and not put any stress or strain on your muscles and joints. Here are a few things to try:

  1. Slow jumping. Don’t feel you need to get extremely high and air-borne. A slow, easy jump is best if you’re recovering.
  2. Walk on the trampoline. If you just want to stay active, walking on a trampoline is better for your muscles and joints.
  3. Rebounding moves toxins throughout your body and keeps your lymphatic system regulated and jumping helps do just that.
  4. Do some jumping jacks. This is a great way to work more muscles and joints and also, doing it on a trampoline keeps you safer.
  5. When you’re feeling better and stronger, you can jump longer and higher and more often. Being on a trampoline will help you stay active, give you a cardio workout and also keep you flexible. Sitting around while you recover will make your recovery longer because of the fact that you’re simply not moving.

Holiday gifts for trampoline owners

Do you have a trampoline owner in your life or in your family? We have ideas for holiday gifts for trampoline owners because if they have a trampoline, there are unique items they may enjoy!

The holidays may seem different to you this year if you can’t travel for the holidays because of the coronavirus pandemic, but that doesn’t mean you can exchange gifts and connect with friends and family from far away.

Holiday gifts for trampoline owners

Here are a few unique ideas to consider:

  1. Spring covers or new springs. This will be a gift they may not expect, but they may not think about having to eventually switch the springs or spring covers. Know what size and type springs their above ground or in-ground trampoline has and buy the correct ones.
  2. Buy a mat cover. If you know someone who has recently purchased a trampoline, they may not have thought about a mat cover, but it is a very thoughtful — and useful gift.
  3. Hanging bags to hold shoes. Asking friends and family to remove their shoes before they get on the trampoline is ideal. If they don’t want to put their shoes on the ground, invest in some hanging bags that are specifically made for trampolines.
  4. Buy some trampoline shoes in various sizes and leave them with your friends. That way they can use them or you can use them when you visit.
  5. If you are going for the big gift this year — buy your children a trampoline for the holidays — they will be so excited to wake up and see a trampoline in your yard!

Trampolines & Thanksgiving Day Go Together

Thanksgiving Day will soon be upon us. Coronavirus may be changing our travel plans and how many people we will be inviting over for the family dinner, but being with your loved ones — even over a Zoom call — may be the way to visit and keep everyone safe and healthy. Trampolines & Thanksgiving day go together and we’ll tell you how!

Whether you’re cooking for a larger gathering in which you will be wearing masks and practicing social distancing or if you’re going to have a small dinner, with only immediate family, the trampoline can certainly play a role in the day!

Keep the kids occupied. If you don’t want the kids running in and out of the kitchen and getting into things — have someone take them out into the yard and watch them while they jump on the in-ground trampoline.

Work off excess energy. If the children have been sitting through dinner and a Zoom call with loved ones from far away, they may need to jump and run and burn off some energy. Time on the trampoline will again come to the rescue.

Stop the “I’m bored.” If your children are bored from playing with their toys in the house or watching television, send them outside to play on the trampoline. You don’t want more than one child on at a time, unless they are extremely close in weight, but let them go in and play with a few balloons.

Stay awake. Everyone knows that a heavy Thanksgiving dinner can lead to wanting to fall asleep on the couch, right? To ward off the after dinner sleepiness, take turns jumping on the trampoline.

We hope you and your family have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
