BE SENSIBLE AND SAFE

Health Benefits of Trampolining

balance – trying to bounce in one place means you have to develop a keen sense of balance and awareness

coordination – the need to coordinate arms and legs necessary to form different shapes and twists

cardiovascular fitness – bouncing on the trampoline increases pulse rate and strengthens muscle groups essential for healthy cardiovascular system

bone density – bouncing repeatedly puts bones under small amounts of stress sufficient to help them build themselves up to cope therefore helps reduce risk of fractures and osteoporosis

improved lymphatic circulation – physical activity and gravity effects (weightlessness while bouncing) actually helps the body detox

low impact – although bouncing is an impact sport the period of acceleration and deceleration is much longer than with activities such as jogging where the surface has no give at all
