While you may already know that a trampoline is a fun way to spend an afternoon, did you know that there are many health benefits when you enjoy time on one? It’s true, and you may be surprised to know just how beneficial a trampoline really is.
Low-Impact Cardio Exercise
Cardio is important. Cardio exercise is anything that gets your heart pumping a little faster as well as causes you to breathe heavier. However, many cardio exercises are high-impact, meaning your ankles, knees, and hips take the force of your momentum. On a trampoline, the surface you are landing on stretches and flexes, so the impact of your exercise is lessened. If you jump on a trampoline with moderate intensity for 20 to 30 minutes a day, you can improve heart health.
Improved Lymphatic System with a Trampoline
The lymphatic system is what keeps our bodies “clean” by removing waste at a cellular level. Your heart is a pump that keeps blood flowing steadily, but the lymphatic system relies on body movement to keep the cellular waste moving toward the appropriate system. It can be hard to rely solely on normal, everyday movements to move the cellular waste away from the arms and legs. Not only does the activity of jumping on a trampoline create helpful muscle movement, but the up and down activity helps to get waste moving even faster. This can lead to a healthier body overall.
Better Balance & Coordination
As you learn how to maintain your balance on a trampoline, you are becoming more aware of your center of gravity, even if only subconsciously. This can help you maintain balance even when you aren’t on a trampoline. Similarly, your coordination to keep your body moving as you want it to also improves.
A trampoline isn’t just about fun. It also makes exercising enjoyable and easy. Flip N Fun has the perfect trampoline for your needs whether many kids or just you and a few adults.
