How To Store Your Trampoline For Winter

Is it winter in the area of the country in which you live? What did you do with your above ground or in-ground trampoline to get it ready for the snow? We have tips for how to store your trampoline for winter because you want it to be useful and like-new when summer 2021 comes around, right?

If you own a large trampoline, you may want to consider dismantling it to store it indoors. If you have an in-ground trampoline you can cover it with a winter cover or you can remove the jump mat and springs and store them for the snowy months.

Inclement weather and snow and ice can damage the jump mat and the weight of it can cause sagging and damage to the springs and mat, too.

Protecting your trampoline during the winter requires foresight and planning. It may seem like a headache, but the time you take now will protect your investment later.

How To Store Your Trampoline For Winter

Here are some of the issues with storing the trampoline for the winter.

  1. Not enough space
  2. Not enough time to take it apart and put it back together
  3. Not enough man power to take apart and reassemble

Remember… the time you take now will prevent any winter-related issues later.

Covers are very useful for protecting your trampoline in the winter. It will protect the mat and springs BUT if there is too much snow and ice and standing water, it could damage the structure. You will want to pay attention to the trampoline and brush it off if it gets covered with snow.

Store the trampoline jump mat and springs in a cool, dry place. Make certain it is not wet and keep the trampoline pads dry. Keep rodents away from the tramoline becae they can quickly damage it when they make your trampoline their new winter home.

Resolutions For 2021 For Trampoline Owners

Yay! It’s the new year! If you’re like the rest of us, you were ready for a change from 2020 and the coronavirus. We have put together some resolutions for 2021 for trampoline owners that we think you will love!

If you have an inground or an above ground trampoline you already know how much fun they are. Sometimes, though people buy trampolines, then it doesn’t get used as much as you imagined it might — just like with swimming pool owners.

We want to make sure you get the most out of your brand new inground or above ground trampoline as you do out of the trampoline you may have owned for a while, but have not used as often a you should.

Whether you received a trampoline for a gift this season or want to get more use out of the trampoline you currently own, you might be wondering how to use it more, have more fun on it and enjoy it as much as your children do!  

Resolutions For 2021 For Trampoline Owners

Consider these resolutions for the new year and breathing new life into your trampoline routine!

  • Remember that rebounding aka jumping, on an in-ground or above ground trampoline aids in healing and recovery. If you’re recovering from an injury and don’t want to be sedentary, your doctor may just approve a trampoline workout.
  • If you’re suffering balance issues, rebounding may help. 
  • Jumping on a trampoline might reduce cellulite. The way that works is that jumping on a trampoline stimulates the lymphatic flow in the thighs and butt and that might reduce cellulite. 
  • Your immune system and endocrine system may benefit because rebounding will help circulate and eventually remove excess toxins. Rebounding simply helps move toxins through your body and improves your lymphatic system and it’s a win all day! 
  • Your cardiovascular system will benefit from rebounding because it supports blood flow and circulation. 
  • You might lose weight. If that’s one of your resolutions, look at your trampoline as your partner in that journey! If you have excess pounds on your frame, an “on ground” workout might lead to an injury. Rebounding doesn’t put any stress or strain on your bones and joints and that means you can jump without fear of injury. Rebounding is a great way to work yourself up from “couch potato” to workout enthusiast.  
  • Look online for exercises you can do while you’re on the in-ground or above ground trampoline. Don’t worry about getting too fancy; simply jumping is a great work out. Add wrist weights or waist weights to amp up the exercise you’re getting while you’re on the trampoline. 

You may find that you look forward to your rebounding work out more than you have ever looked forward to an hour on the treadmill at the gym. If you look forward to a work out you will look forward to and that will be a workout you will likely stick with! 

Talk with your doctor before you start your 2021 resolution of spending more time on the trampoline. He will probably give you the thumbs up, but it’s better to know for sure!
