Benefits of Exercise for Kids


We all want the very best for our kiddos. One way to help ensure that is regular exercise. Here at Rebounderz, we believe in making exercise fun as well as teaching the virtue of hard work. At our Sunrise, Fl trampoline park, kids can expend all their pent up energy, get some exercise, and have fun all in one place. Kids who exercise regularly can see a whole host of benefits, some of which we’ll list right here.

Heart Health

You exercise your muscles to strengthen them. Since the heart is a muscle, regular exercise is important for its health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and the earlier you can get your children in the habit of exercising, the better protected they’ll be from it.

Helps Blood Flow

Over time, fats and cholesterol build up in a person’s body. This is especially detrimental in the United States, where bad eating habits are much more prevalent. Luckily, regular exercise reduces the amount of cholesterol and fat in the blood, as well as increasing the strength of the vessel walls and lowering blood pressure. All of this also helps to reduce the risks of a heart attack or stroke.

Lung Health

Lung capacity and cardio exercises are closely linked. The more you work out your body, and by extension your respiratory system, the stronger it will be. With regular exercise, your child will not only be able to draw in more air per breath, but your body will also learn to use that oxygen more efficiently.

Prevent Diabetes

Your body uses glucose for energy, which it burns up during exercise. Accumulating sugar over time can be a factor for developing diabetes. Regular exercise, starting in childhood, is a great way to minimize chances of developing this illness.

Helps Regulate Weight

Over time, a sedentary lifestyle can be very unhealthy. All of the calories that aren’t getting used get stored as fat. While there is a wide range of healthy body weight, too much fat can come with a host of maladies.

Strengthens Bones

Exercise, especially anaerobic exercise, is great for your bones. Just like your muscles get stronger when you work them out, so do your bones. Regular exercise improves bone density and helps prevent osteoporosis, a condition that causes the bones to become fragile and break easily.

Helps Prevent Cancer

Many studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between people who exercise regularly and avoiding a cancer diagnosis. This is more apparent in some cancers than others, including prostate, colon, uterine, and breast cancers.

More Energy

It may seem counter intuitive, but regular exercise equates to more energy throughout the day. That’s because the human body is always trying to reach homeostasis, and when exercise is regularly put into a person’s routine that just becomes a factor the body considers in its quest for that “just right” balance of chemicals.

Improves Mood

Have you ever experienced a “runner’s high”? When the body is pushed physically, it releases endorphins that block pain and make a person feel good. Serotonin, the “feel good chemical”, production is also affected by exercise.


That is a lot of good to be had for a half our to an hour out of the day. If you’re having problems motivating your kids to exercise, a trip to Rebounderz may be just what the doctor ordered.
