7 health benefits of using a trampoline for exercise
If you thought trampolining was just for kids, you’d be wrong! There is actually a multitude of benefits for adults who exercise on a Springfree Trampoline.
Increasing your heart rate with 10 minutes of jumping a day will give you a great cardio workout, equivalent to a 30-minute run, and strengthen the muscles that are needed for a healthy cardiovascular system.
Jumping on a Springfree Trampoline actually burns more calories than running! A NASA study found that trampoline jumping is 68% more efficient than running or jogging – perfect for time-strapped Mums everywhere!
Gentler on Joints
Whilst running is high-impact and can cause stress on your joints, jumping on a Springfree Trampoline is actually a low-impact cardio exercise because the trampoline mat absorbs 80% of the shock. It takes the pressure off your knees and prevents the jarring of your ankles and spine by removing the stress of a hard surface workout. So you can rest assured that you’re protecting your joints whilst still exercising your muscles.
Jumping strengthens your bones and helps prevent bone diseases such as osteoporosis. In fact, trampolining proved to be the best exercise to rebuild the lost bone tissue of astronauts who had lost 15% of their bone mass from being weightless in space.
Improved Motor Skills
The combination of jumping high, maintaining balance and concentrating on executing the move will help to improve your motor skills – all in one go.
Jump for Joy
Being active makes you feel happy, positive and self-confident, and trampolining is no exception! Endorphins, the positive mood-enhancing chemicals released during exercise, are triggered when jumping and help to improve your mental health. After all, who can resist a smile when you’re jumping up and down?
As well as the cardio workout of jumping, keeping your balance and concentration on doing the move helps to improve your coordination!
