Besides being great fun for adults and kids, trampolining has a number of health and developmental benefits. Bouncing around in your back garden can hugely increase your fitness, so kick off your running shoes and get jumping!
The availability of safe and strong trampolines for use in your own garden means that trampolining is not only great for your health, but it’s easy to get into. Let’s look at some of the main benefits:
Trampolining Fitness Benefits
If you are a regular runner, you will know that jogging can put a huge amount of physical stress on your legs and feet, especially road running. The good news is that trampolining puts far less strain on your weight-bearing joints.
Although the stress put on your joints is far less when using a trampoline instead of running, trampolining is strenuous enough and the jumping action puts your bones under enough stress to build and improve bone mineral content. This can help prevent brittle bone disease or osteoporosis. The springiness of the trampoline makes sure your bones are protected.
On top of that, trampoline exercise can:
- Increases oxygen capacity and circulation to the tissue
- Improves the circulation of the lymph through the lymph glands
- Improves Cardiovascular health
- Firms and tones the muscles
Trampolining benefits your muscle strength and fitness, which can improve your heart and circulation, so oxygen is pumped around your body more efficiently. This makes you feel great and is a great way to keep your weight down. (Although, you should get your doctor’s approval before exercising after a serious illness or heart attack.)
Mental Health Benefits
The physical activity of jumping on a trampoline makes you feel happier, positive and even more self-confident. Trampolining releases endorphins, but also, remember that it is also great fun! Can you watch the video below and not smile?
Coordination and motor skills
A great benefit for growing children, bouncing, unsupported in the air is great balance training. On top of this, the overall body co-ordination and anticipation of the next moves are vital and can have a positive impact on bilateral motor skills.
Overall, trampolining offers many benefits to adults and kids. We have many options available, so no matter the size of your garden, we’ll have something suitable. For the smaller gardens we have 4.5ft and 6ft trampolines, for slightly bigger gardens, browse our 8ft and 10ft trampolines and for the big gardens, 12ft and 14ft trampolines are perfect.
The benefits of trampolining are clear, but don’t forget, bouncing around in the garden all day is also great fun!
