Aging brings with it wisdom but it also brings with it, aches, pains and slowing down. The slowing down is what ages us the most. Ask your doctor — he or she will agree to staying physically and mentally active is the best way to live a longer, healthier and happier life. We have new years resolutions for healthy seniors that include jumping — rebounding — on a trampoline.
Balance and stability wane as we age and that’s what leads to falls and injuries in senior citizens, but it doesn’t have to happen to you. You can keep bones strong, muscle mass intact and joints flexible. Jumping on a trampoline also helps with coordination and core strength.
One of the best exercises for seniors is in-ground or above ground trampoline-based. Rebounding helps maintain stability, balance and maximizes quality of life.
New Years Resolutions for Healthy Seniors
Not everyone has access to a trampoline, or knows how to get into a rebounding routine or has not yet asked his or her doctor to see if you’re healthy enough to start this workout.
- It’s low impact. You won’t put stress or strain on muscles and joints and this is a concern if you have arthritis.
- It has cardiovascular benefits. Rebounding helps lower blood pressure, strengthens your heart muscles and improves circulation.
- It benefits bone density. Trampolines give a gentle impact workout that strengthens bones and prevents osteoporosis or bone fractures.
- Balance and stability improvement. Jumping will strengthen leg muscles and balance.
- It’s just plain fun! Truly, if you are going to work out, shouldn’t it be fun!
- Your grandchildren and your adult children will also love and benefit from jumping on a trampoline!
