Trampoline Exercise Benefits

Did you know a study by the American Council on Exercise found that bouncing on a trampoline for less than 20 minutes is just as good for you as running. The best part? It feels better and is a lot more fun!
Trampolines, formerly reserved for neighborhood cool kids’ backyards, have recently gained popularity as fitness equipment
If you’re thinking of purchasing a treadmill for your home take a look at the benefits of a trampoline instead. Not only is it more fun, it burns more calories!
Force of Impact
Lots of people use running as a way to get fit. “One downside of running is that it can lead to orthopedic injuries,” says John Porcari, Professor of exercise and sport science at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse. Running is a high-impact exercise that causes stress on your joints due to the force of impact.
Jumping on a trampoline is a low-impact cardio exercise that absorbs 80% of the shock. It takes the pressure off your knees and removes the strain and stress of a hard surface workout. And Porcari says that makes it seem easier than it is.
Calorie Burning
You may be surprised to find out that trampoline jumping burns more calories than running. Victor L. Katch at the University of Michigan found that a 150 pound person burns 71 calories jogging and 82 calories on the trampoline.
Time Saver
While burning 10 calories more on a trampoline might not seem like much, consider that you need to spend less time on a trampoline than running to achieve that. A NASA study found that 10 minutes of jumping on a trampoline is the equivalent of a 30 minute run. The fact is exercising on a trampoline take less time than running. If you’re a busy parent who struggles to find time to exercise you can go for a quick jump right in your backyard!
Exercise Like An Astronaut
A NASA study found that trampoline jumping is 68% more efficient than running or jogging. In fact, it proved to be the best exercise to rebuild the lost bone tissue of astronauts whose weightless state caused them to lose 15% of their bone mass.
Fun for the Whole Family
Let’s face it, jumping on a trampoline is fun. And even better, it’s an investment for the whole family. From kids to adults everyone can enjoy the fun of getting outside and active on a trampoline.

5 things about trampolines that may not be true

Trampolines have a bad reputation. You’ve probably heard stats, rumors, story from a friend-of-a-friend about trampolines. But when used appropriately (and with a little common sense) trampolines can be a fantastic addition to your backyard.
So … we’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of the top five trampoline myths to show you why they’re wrong.
1 – Trampolines Are Dangerous
You’ve all heard the stats, but trampolines don’t have to be dangerous. Did you know that each year in the United States, emergency departments treat more than 200,000 children ages 14 and younger for playground-related injuries? Much like you encourage children to play safely on a playground, you should encourage them to play safely on a trampoline.

Trampolines are also safer than before – adding safety nets and even completely removing springs. Our smart springless design has not only changed the way trampolines work but it has eliminated the impact areas most commonly related to injuries.2 – Trampolines Can’t Be Used Safely

Yes, they can! Just like you wear bike helmets and have rules for swimming pools, you should have rules for safe trampoline play. We highly recommend following these five safe jumping rules to make your jump time even safer:
No Flips: Untrained jumpers can land on their head and neck, causing serious injury.
One at a Time: Having a single jumper eliminates the chance of collisions and injuries. And NEVER DOUBLE-BOUNCE! tgoma games for Springfree trampolines only work with one jumper at a time removing the worry of multiple jumpers.
Supervise Jumping: A responsible adult should keep an eye on the jumper.
Safe Clearance: Keep enough space around the trampoline (we recommend 1.5 meters) to allow room for the net to flex out. It’s also important to have safe overhead clearance of 6m.

Keep it Locked: Zip the net when the trampoline is not being used will keep unwanted jumpers away.3 – Trampolines Ruin Your Grass

We get this one a lot. People assume that if you have a trampoline the grass underneath will die because it’s not getting enough sun. But this depends on the backyard. Backyards that get a lot of sun don’t tend to experience grass dying underneath. However, if the trampoline is in a shaded area (or there are lots trees) then the grass can yellow out. If this happens we recommend placing mulch underneath.

To avoid this from happening, choose the best spot in your yard for the trampoline – one away from trees and shaded areas. And if you’re worried, you can always move the trampoline to multiple spots to ensure the grass isn’t blocked too long.4 – All Trampolines Are the Same

No, all trampolines are not the same and they are not all equal. Trampolines come in many different sizes – large, medium, small – and different shapes – circle, square, oval. And not just that, there are different types of trampolines – springless trampolines, spring-based trampolines and fitness trampolines. You have lots of options to find the best trampoline for you and your family.5 – Trampolines Are Just For Kids

Kids love trampolines, but they are just as much fun for adults too! You can add it to your exercise routine, use it to reduce stress and turn it into an outdoor activity for the whole family. Set family challenges to find out who can do the most jumps in a minute or who can do the most seat drops. A trampoline can be a great way to engage the entire family in the backyard.At Springfree we believe that kids deserve safe, active outdoor play. That’s why we re-engineered the trampoline from the ground up. To give families a fun way to play outside and give parents piece of mind that their children are safe.

Treadmill or Trampoline? Make the Smart Investment
