Let’s Trampoline

In the last few years the exiting sport Trampolining has experienced a momentous growth in the last few years certainly due to the inclusion of Trampolining as an Olympic sport in the year 2000. As a deliberate effort to break the limitations of outdoor trampoline or bungee trampoline, youngsters as well as the aged people have made known their interest and willingness to engage in ‘pay-for-play’ activities at trampoline parks and trampoline centers.

With specific design encompassing various activities, Trampoline Park provides a perfect fun, fitness and sport platform with large jumping space and high bounces to users. This is a big deal for people to do various cool tricks and enjoy the active life. It is said that trampolining for 30 minutes worth more than spending 3 hours in a treadmill.

Trampolining is probably the only fun sport activity in which a ‘well sitting bounce’ is rewarded. In fact this bouncy game activity was invented when a woman in 19th-century London jumped from a burning building on to a stretched-out bed sheet, only to provoke spontaneous applause from onlookers when she accidentally performed a half-twist leading into a pike.

Did you know there are several trampoline health benefits off the mat?

Besides the fun and leisure trampoline park, inclusive of all activities, provides many health benefits for both young and old: let’s look into the physical benefits of trampolining

Trampolining is the best way for children to stay active, which has a very positive effect on their academic success. Studies have proven that physical activity is directly related to academic performance. Children who regularly trampoline solve problems more effectively, improve their reading and mathematical skill, and are able to perform many tasks at the same time more effectively. “Bouncing builds brains;” every single muscle is exercised on the trampoline.

Regular physical activities like Trampolining helps children develop confidence and sense of worth. Better leadership skill and empathy for others are also resulted by physical activities.

Trampoline health benefits are extended to both young and old; here are some more important facts that everybody need to know:

1. Cardiovascular Benefit

Trampolining requires the stretching of almost all the muscles in a human body. Unlike jogging trampolining will cause only little shock trauma to the skeletal system than running on hard surfaces. Regular trampolining will increases lung capacities and red blood cell counts and lowers blood pressure.

2. Beneficial to the Lymphatic System

It is very much proven that Trampolining benefits the lymphatic system of the human body, which is often missing in jogging or any other aerobic exercises. The lymphatic system fights bacterial and viral infections and transports waste products out of the body. Since muscle contractions are being used by the lymph fluid to help it transport itself around the body, trampoline exercise is the best means for this.

3. Weight Loss
The bounce generated while jumping on a trampoline can offer the feeling of soaring through the air and burn a considerable amount of fat. Burning calories can actually help lead to weight loss. Weight loss results when more calories are burned than how much is taken in, so by adding trampolining to routine exercise can burn more calories and contribute to an overall caloric deficit.
According to Discovery Health, a 150-pound individual who jumps on a trampoline for 30 minutes will burn roughly 119 calories. Compared to walking at a moderate pace, which burns roughly 170 calories, or jogging, which burns roughly 238 calories, trampoline jumping has a significantly lower calorie burn.

4. Back Problems
Trampoline activities are proven low-impact exercises, which strengthen the human spinal cord. Trampoline rebounding provides several benefits such as improving the flexibility of the back. Most of the orthopedic surgeons are recommending weight maintenance exercises for preventing back problems, which can be achieved through trampoline exercises.

5. Balance
Jumping on a trampoline is unlike balancing on anything else. The trampoline floor is constantly moving and jumpers must be aware of their center of gravity at all times. The balance learned on a trampoline helps improve balance in other activities.

6. Injury Reduction

Studies have shown that 27% to 70% of joggers get hurt in their first year of running. The impact forces that cause these injuries can be reduced by 80%.

7. Natural Face Lift

As getting aged, oxygen levels in the skin cells decrease, resulting in a loss of elasticity and the formation of lines and wrinkles. Each cell of human body is like a balloon. Trampoline exercise puts these cells repeatedly under stress as they need to resist the increased gravitational force. With time, the cell’s membrane gets thicker, thus firmer, and gains elasticity. Therefore, regular use of a trampoline will firm your skin and increase its elasticity.

8. Build Bone Mass
Consecutive study by NASA has proven that trampoline activities are the best exercises to rebuild the lost bone tissue of astronauts whose continued weightless state caused them to lose up to 15% bone mass in only 2 weeks in space. This same exercise can be used by anyone (especially women) to prevent osteoporosis and actually reverse the damage.

9. Stress Reliever

Trampolining acts like a natural analgesic, relieving pain throughout the body by increasing circulation and the flow of oxygen, and has also been shown to enhance relaxation and improve sleep.

The positive effects on stress levels have been studied in depth. Dr. Morton Walker, in his book “Jumping for Health”, pages 82-91, describes 30 Specific Anti-stress Benefits of trampoline activities (Avery Publishing Group Inc., Garden City Park, New York)

10. Incontinence

Trampoline activities can strengthen the pelvic area muscles which are located between the legs, and run from pubic bone at the front to the base of the spine at the back. Shaped like a sling that holds the pelvic organs (uterus, vagina, bowel and bladder) in place, Trampoline activities are very important to strengthen the pelvic area muscles.

As it is made clear through in this piece of writing, Trampoline activities have many health benefits in addition to cardiovascular fitness apart from the fun factor. Dr Dicken Weatherby says:

“The regular use of a trampoline can greatly improve your health. I recommend that my patients bounce on their trampoline for a minimum of five minutes a day to increase their cellular oxygenation, strengthen weak muscles and joints, improve aerobic capacity, and most importantly cleanse and detoxify the lymphatic system”.

Trampolining could be an answer to those who want to keep up their fitness but have struggled with joint difficulties. Trampolines are easy to use, and last but not least a fun way to exercise!
