Health Benfits of Trampolining

Why Trampolining?

Compared to running, with trampolining, the springs take away all the impact of the road, and as a result, the activity has been shown in test to be three times more beneficial to an individual than running (1).

So a ten minute bounce is the same as a half hour run!

For most children, just running for 10 minutes continuously would max their "fun attention" and become somewhat boring. However, 10 minutes on a trampoline is just the start of fun and excitement for most children.

See for yourself by looking up the wealth of information available at numerous websites dedicated to the benefits of trampolining and rebound. (See references and links below).

Trampoline exercise has many important health benefits as follows:

  • Stimulates your metabolism.
  • Increases oxygen capacity.
  • Improves your sense of balance.
  • Increases oxygen circulation to tissues.
  • Improves the circulation of the lymph through the lymph glands.
  • Strengthens the heart (Cardiovascular health).
  • Increases energy and sense of vitality.
  • Firms and tones the muscles.

Most of all though, it makes one smile, laugh and is great source of FUN! This has proven health benefits in itself; and it means that one will keep doing it because they enjoy it.

Trampolining is a great holistic health giver, bringing both physical and mental benefits to adults and children alike. In comparison to jogging, for example, trampolining is more effective, faster: with a ten minute session providing equivalent benefits to a half hour run, yet, says NASA, also being 68% more effective! (3)

Rebound exercise is the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man. (2)

NASA says:

...for a similar level of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running.(4)
Exercise can be helpful in building and maintaining strong bones. Exercise that forces you to work against gravity - so called weight bearing exercises such as walking or jogging [and rebounding] are beneficial...If you are at risk for osteoporosis, your doctor will most likely include exercise as part of your overall treatment program.
