9 Benefits Of Using A Trampoline
Let’s, um… jump right into it!
- Jumping aka rebounding is a great way to improve your cardiovascular system. Jumping increases your heart and breath rates. You can jump on a trampoline for 10 minutes and reap the benefits of a 30-minute jog or run.
- They’re fun and your children will get fit as well as having fun.
- Jumping on a trampoline will increase your bone mass and this is a healthy way to keep your bones safe as you age.
- Your children can jump and get exercise without worry about injuring their legs, feet or joints while they do so.
- Rebounding can alleviate stress and anxiety – and during this time of coronavirus who doesn’t need a way to alleviate their stress?
- If you have a trampoline you know where your children are AND an inground or above ground trampoline will encourage your children to get outdoors!
- Jumping on a trampoline improves coordination and balance.
- When children learn how to jump and maybe even do a few “tricks” they are learning to be patient and improve their skills!
- Jumping on a trampoline and landing involves contracting the muscles in your legs, belly and glutes and that will give them a great workout and could also help core strength.
There is no reason to be “afraid” of a trampoline — they could be as safe as a bicycle — it’s all in how you use it!
