Why Trampolines Are Fun For Adults

When it comes to getting in shape and having fun at the same time, we get it! And why not? We have some tips for why trampolines are fun for adults and teenagers, too. Trampolines always look like so much fun when children are jumping around on them and there’s no reason you can’t join in!

Trampolines are ideal for exercising especially for someone who wants to get in shape without worrying about joint injury or pain. Rebounding offers a great cardio workout and it works your legs as well as your core. Older adults who may suffer from balance issues benefit from rebounding because of the core workout they provide.

Why Trampolines Are Fun For Adults

Jumping on a trampoline, for even thirty minutes a day gives an adult a full workout without even leaving the house.

What are some things you should look for when purchasing an inground or an above-ground trampoline?

  1. Where you will place the inground or above-ground trampoline will be one of the considerations when it comes to size. The size of the jump mat will also play a role in your freedom of movement when it comes to your rebounding workout.
  2. You can choose trampolines that are circular or rectangular. The shape may also be determined by the space you have for the trampoline.
  3. Your budget. Know how much you have to spend for your trampoline because that will help you determine the size and shape.
  4. Don’t forget to budget for spring covers and a net, among other trampoline accessories.
  5. An in-ground trampoline will require more work when it comes to installation as you will need to excavate a hole for it. Regardless of the type of trampoline you get, you may want to recruit friends and family to help with its construction.

Benefits Of Going Barefoot

We’ve written before that you should always go barefoot when you’re on your in-ground or above-ground trampoline. Shoes could unintentionally rip the jump mat but more importantly, feeling the trampoline jump mat beneath your feet helps with the benefits you get from time spent on a trampoline. There are many benefits of going barefoot, and not just while you’re on the trampoline. 

When is the last time you’ve gone barefoot? Do you even go barefoot in your house? Can you remember the last time your bare feet touched the grass or the sand? Today’s society means we are usually wearing shoes and socks and in many ways wearing shoes makes your feet weaker.

Being barefoot brings physical as well as mental health benefits. Walking on the earth puts you in touch with the elements and makes you at one with nature and that is a great way to clear your mind and relax more than if you were walking with shoes and socks on.

Here are other reasons to go barefoot.

Without shoes, your body needs to rely on itself for physical balance. Your vestibular system – the part of your body that is responsible for your balance – helps stimulate neural connections and keeps you upright. As you age, balance is a crucial health element to focus on. Seniors who don’t have good balance are more prone to falls and broken bones that can lead to health declines and even death.

Kids usually love the feeling of grass and warm earth beneath their feet and toes. Health in the body begins from the ground up. If you have healthy feet you’re better able to run, bike and jump on your trampoline. Pediatricians may even recommend keeping your children shoeless for as long as possible when they are babies just to help them use and strengthen their feet.

It’s been said that people who go barefoot have an increased immunity. Getting stronger and being more active strengthens your immune system and being barefoot has been tied to that activity.

5 Ways To Get Fit On A Trampoline

Do you want a way to get fit and healthier without joining a gym? Do you want to get fit and healthy in a way that won’t put stress and strain on your joints? If you answered “yes” then you will want to make an investment in an above-ground or an in-ground trampoline. Here are some tips and 5 ways to get fit on a trampoline.

Having your own trampoline means you have a space right in your backyard to get up and get moving. Also, when you spend even fifteen minutes on a trampoline every day you are helping strengthen your core, getting more fit and getting your blood flowing. If you’re new to exercise and fitness it might be best to talk with your doctor to ensure you’re healthy enough and to what he or she recommends when you being jumping on your trampoline.

Here are 5 reasons that rebounding on your in-ground or above-ground trampoline is a great fitness tool.

  1. Rebounding on a trampoline is a great way to move your entire body. Your legs get engaged when you land. Your arms are engaged because they are helping you keep your balance and you can spin them when you jump to engage them even further. Your core muscles will be engaged each time you land. As we age, core muscles can help prevent falls and that can help keep you healthier for a lifetime.
  2. Jumping on a trampoline helps you exercise but doesn’t put any stress or strain on your joints like running or even riding a bike might. Jumping also gives you a great cardio workout.
  3. You don’t need to be fit to start jumping on a trampoline and that’s the beauty of it. You could literally go from couch potato to fifteen minute a day rebounder. Also when you’re jumping on a trampoline your mind is getting a “workout” by relaxing while you’re jumping. Being weightless on the jump is a unique feeling.
  4. Rebounding could be a jumping off point to other physical activity or training you may be involved in. When you jump on the trampoline for about thirty minutes a day you can increase your endurance and that will translate to helping you swim, run, bike or play sports longer than you may have been able to in the past.
  5. When you’re healthier and more active you can ward off diseases. Keeping your circulation active improves your lymphatic health, increases cardio and heart strength and helps lower blood pressure. Rebounding could be the start of a healthy diet and lifestyle for a lifetime.

If you’ve been looking for a reason — or 5 — to invest in an above-ground or an in-ground trampoline, these five just might be what you were looking for!
