How Important Is Trampoline Air Flow?

Air flow may not be something you think about when you’re in the market for an in-ground or an above ground trampoline, but it needs to be. How important is trampoline air flow? When you are investing in an in ground trampoline air flow is something you need to consider because it impacts the rebounding ease and safety when you’re jumping.

First things first, though. When you’re talking with your family about getting a trampoline you need to think about:

  1. Do you want an inground trampoline?
  2. Do you want an above ground trampoline
  3. What size do you want?
  4. Where should it be placed?
  5. How much weight does it need to accommodate?
  6. Will you install the in ground trampoline on your own?
  7. Are there any accessories you’d like with your trampoline?

You need to answer all the questions above, but the easiet question to answer is… will it be fun? You know it will! In addition to the fun, though are the health benefits you achieve when you incorporate a rebounding workout into your daily exercise routine. Hint: it won’t even feel like exercise because rebounding is so much fun!

How Important Is Trampoline Air Flow?

What about air flow and an in ground trampoline?

When it comes to the safe and enjoyable jumping on a trampoline, air flow is of utmost importance. If there isn’t proper and adequate air flow in, around and especially under, the in ground trampoline, your “bounce” will suffer.

.Our experts understand how imporant air flow is to the in ground trampoline design and because of that the spring pad we designed allows for air flow in the trampoline from both the inside and outside of the spring pads. Every time you jump on an in ground trampoline, the pad will have a slight lift and at that time, no air can escape. It is the landing that pushes the air out; the air needs to freely flow between the pit for the in-ground trampoline and the spring mat.

We understood the importance of air flow and how it relates to your rebounding experience on your an in-ground trampoline, because of that we introduced a high performance, anti-slip, jump mat. This high performance mat offers a fifteen times greater air flow capacity and that gives you an increased air flow for a more high performance bounce. This means you bounce higher and land softer.

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!

Are You Using Your Trampoline Even More?

“I’m bored…” How often have your children been saying that since the coronavirus pandemic hit and they are now forced to stay home and not see their friends? Are you using your trampoline even more? We know that many people are and that many more people are investing in trampolines for fun and exercise when they are staying home.

Using a trampoline is a great way for your children to burn off their energy and to get in shape (without even knowing it) and stave off boredom that comes from not being able to see their friends or go to school.

We also know that some parents are “bored” too, of trying to find ways to entertain their children while they are trying to get work done!

Are You Using Your Trampoline Even More?

If you’re new to trampoline ownership or are still in the research phases for an in-ground or an above ground trampoline here are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Buy the highest quality you can afford. A high quality, well-made in-ground or above ground trampoline will keep you safer and will also last longer than lower quality, inexpensive models.
  2. There needs to be ample headspace in the area you are placing your trampoline. There should be no overhead branches, roofs or other potential crash injury structures.
  3. Inspect the springs, bolts, pads and jump mat regularly. You need to make sure the pads are completely covering the springs. The springs need to be viable and not rusted or coming loose. The jump mat needs to also be inspected for any rips or tears.
  4. Check the safety net to make certain it’s secure and that there are no holes.
  5. Make sure there is only one child at a time jumping on the trampoline. You may be able to have more than one if they are the same weight and that they know not to jump too crazily so they bump into one another.
  6. Shoes off! Make sure shoes are off when jumping on the trampoline. Don’t let children or adults wear jewelry or earrings when on the trampoline as they could get snagged on the net or mat and cause an injury.
  7. Make sure the mat is dry. A slippery jump mat will lead to a slip and fall. Dry the mat and use a mat cover when the trampoline is not in use.

How To Make An Informed Trampoline Decision

There is no doubt that in-ground trampolines are fun for everyone in the family – children and adults. When you’re trampoline shopping you can opt for an in-ground style or an above ground trampoline. In-ground models are popular for safety reasons and aesthetic reasons.

An in-ground trampoline is installed at ground level and most of the hardware sits underground in an excavated area. The in-ground trampoline kit you purchase should include all of the necessary parts. This is a style that blends seamlessly into your landscape and won’t detract from any other outdoor amenities such as a swimming pool or outdoor living space.

How To Make An Informed Trampoline Decision

In-ground trampolines are considered safer because they are close to the ground. This may or may not be true because if someone jumps too high and misses the trampoline mat on his or her landing, an injury may occur. A benefit of “falling” from an in-ground trampoline is that you’re closer to the ground.

Many children feel more comfortable in an in-ground trampoline because they may be afraid of the height of the above ground model and then when they jump they are even higher from the ground. A safety net is a good investment regardless of whether you get an in-ground trampoline or an above ground. You can remove the net on your in-ground trampoline if you’re hosting a party and don’t want to detract from the appeal of your backyard aesthetic.

In-ground trampolines are easier to access because you don’t have to ascend or descend a ladder to use it.

Keep in mind that the larger the jump mat is, the safer the trampoline will be because it is a larger area for jumping and landing.

Once you decide on the placement of the in-ground trampoline you are committing to that space in your yard. With an above ground trampoline you can move it if you want to re-landscape or add to the backyard accessories. Know where you want to put the in-ground trampoline  and keep it for the long term.

The air flow in an in-ground trampoline will not be as much as with an above ground model and some individuals say that they don’t feel they’re getting as good a bounce as they would on an above ground style. It may make sense to try one out before you buy it.

If you’re buying something for your children to use and get enjoyment out of, you will want to do your homework and make certain you know the pitfalls and benefits before you not only buy a trampoline but when you decide if you want an inground or an above-ground model.

The exercise on a trampoline is disguised as fun and that makes it even better!

 Considering A Trampoline: Ask These Questions

 Almost anything you invest in for your family and children could lead to a potential injury. Whether your child is climbing on the swingset, riding a bike, being on the family swimming pool diving board or riding a horse they could get injured. Almost everything in life comes with risk.
It is up to the parents and adults in the household to set rules and parameters for use of everything from swimming pools to bicycles to jumping on a trampoline. Ask your trampoline seller for his or her advice on how to make your trampoline as safe as it possibly can be.
When you’re buying a trampoline, invest in as many safety accessories as you can afford when you buy your trampoline. Skimping on safety is never something you should do — no matter what you’re buying for your family.

How To Rebound On A Trampoline

How to rebound on a trampoline is something the In-Ground Trampoline professionals get asked all the time. In fact, “rebounding” is a fancy term for “jumping” on your trampoline.

What is rebounding?

Exercising on a trampoline, whether an above ground or an in-ground style is called rebounding. This type of exercise is ideal for someone who is out of shape and looking to get started on an exercise routine and it might even be ideal for someone who is recovering from an injury. Ask your doctor if you’re unsure whether rebounding is a good exercise for you.

How To Rebound On A Trampoline

Rebounding is an activity that children and adults with limited mobility and even though with neurological disorders can try. Some parents and therapists find that rebounding is an exercise that benefits those with down syndrome or autism; perhaps because of the rhythmic motion and certainly because they won’t fall and get injured.

If your doctor recommends rebound therapy to help you recover from an injury, he or your physical therapist can provide you with a series of movements and activities to do on the trampoline that will help you recover from your injury. Rebounding during recovery helps increase your balance and rebuild your muscle strength.

In addition to helping you recover, jumping on a trampoline is just plain fun!

If you have a ground level trampoline, in-ground trampoline, you will have an added measure of safety and security because you’re at ground level. You may even need to, or want to, add a stability bar to hold onto while you bounce and regain your strength.

If you have an above ground trampoline you will want to have a stable method to get onto and off of the trampoline. Consider moveable steps or a step stool, but have someone by you as you use the step stool to get onto and off of the trampoline.
