6 Trampoline Health Benefits

There is no doubt that getting and staying in shape will not only help you live a longer, healthier life, but you may not know that exercise is a great way to get happier! The importance of exercising regularly will help you lose weight or maintain weight and could also help prevent a tumble or fall in an older adult — especially if they’re using a trampoline to work out on. We have put together a list of 6 trampoline health benefits to get you thinking!

Inground and above-ground trampolines are ideal for adults and children and here’s why!

  1. They are fun to bounce on and when you’re having fun, you’re also getting in shape. Trampoline exercise is considered by many to be more fun and enjoyable than jogging or riding a bike or going to a gym. Whatever type of exercise you are involved in needs to be one that is right for you! We think it’s the best form of exercise because it is a low impact activity that won’t strain or stress your joints.
  2. Rebounding aka jumping on a trampoline, helps with motor skills. Improved motor skills are ideal for young children. Improved motor skills are also great for aging adults who may suffer balance problems as they age. When you land on the jump mat your body needs to find its center and that helps you strengthen your core because your body is maintaining the equilibrium and staying upright.
  3. When you’re rebounding all of your cells are getting movement. When all your cells are moving your lymphatic system is also “moving” and that helps alleviate and remove toxins from your body.
  4. You might lose weight! When you are getting any kind of exercise, your metabolism is stimulated and that can lead to weight loss. What better way to stimulate weight loss than by doing something that’s fun!? We can’t think of anything better!
  5. When you exercise you increase your bone density and that’s necessary as we age because increased bone density can help prevent osteoporosis. Jumping on a trampoline rebuilds bones and can reverse osteoporosis and could help prevent arthritis or alleviate the pain from it.
  6. Jumping on a trampoline definitely has health benefits, but did you know there are also emotional and benefits, too? When you jump or do any type of exercise, your blood circulation is improved and that helps pump fresh, clean oxygen into your brain and that helps with clearheaded thinking!

There is no denying that you could get injured on a trampoline, but truthfully you could also get injured riding a bike. The safety measures you have in place will help keep everyone safe on the inground or above ground trampoline. Younger children are most at risk of injury and that could be because they sometimes jump with other children who outweigh them and that can cause a “bumping into” injury.

‘Here are other potential injuries and how they could occur: Common injuries include:

  • Boken bones because of a wrong landing
  • Concussions because someone flipped or did a somersault (these should not be allowed!)
  • Sprains and strains – could be because of going from sedentary to overly active. Ease yourself into it
  • Bruises and cuts – if the springs aren’t properly covered
  • Head and neck injuries – could occur if the jumpers bump into one another

Common sense and “house rules” need to be in place to keep everyone safe and they include:

  1. Only one person on the trampoline at a time
  2. Adult supervision at all times
  3. Ban somersaults
  4. Make certain the springs are covered and that the mat and padding are adequate
  5. Use a net around the trampoline, whether inground or above ground
