Health Benefits of using a Trampoline
Unlike some sports like jogging and tennis, trampolining has relatively low joint impact for a high impact exercise routine. The trampoline pad and springs absorb over 80% of the shock from your vertical acceleration and deceleration. Hard surfaces such as roads do not. This means that trampolining protects your joints whilst exercising your muscles. Jumping on a trampoline burns a similar amount of calories as jogging.
Trampolining increases your muscle strength and fitness. The increase to your pulse rate by jumping improves your heart and circulation and ensures that oxygen is pumped round your body more efficiently, making you feel healthier. It is also an excellent fun way to control your weight.
Recent studies have found that trampolining is a great way to release toxins from the body. Due to the G forces created from impact of the trampoline mat and up to weightlessness when floating in the air, this causes the cells in the body to contract and swell forcing out toxins in the process.
Trampoline exercise has been proven to increase your metabolic rate, helping your body to process food more efficiently. This helps to control your weight.
Trampolining uses a variety of muscles. This helps keep your stomach trim, your bottom tight and your thighs slim. The exercise and muscle control required when jumping on a trampoline is a really good way to burn fat, tone up and control your weight.
If you own a trampoline, you don't need to spend huge amounts of money on gym fees, only to find you cannot find the time to fit it in with your busy schedule. You don't need to fight with traffic and breath in toxic fumes from trucks and busses when exercising on your bike. A trampoline also provides privacy as you can get a complete workout in your own home.
