Jumping on a trampoline is a whole lot of fun, but the health benefits will put an even bigger smile on your face! The rewards of trampoline jumping makes it the perfect activity for people of all ages and health status. The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of moderate exercise daily to keep your body healthy. An indoor trampoline park is a perfect venue to jump to your heart’s content and health.
Low impact cardio
The continual jumping and bouncing on a trampoline gets your heart and respiratory rates up, which puts you in the prime fat-burning zone. The flexible surface of a trampoline stretches as you land, making it much lower impact than alternate cardio activities, such as jogging. Bouncing puts much less stress on your joints and results in fewer injuries.
Balance and Coordination
The bouncy surface of trampolines makes them difficult to balance on. With practice, jumping on a trampoline can dramatically improve your balance and coordination. The simultaneous jumping and balancing helps improve overall coordination. Remaining upright and jumping on a flexible surface helps to develop agility and flexibility that aids in overall coordination.
Lymphatic System Stimulation
Your lymphatic system runs throughout your entire body, just like your circulatory system; however, unlike your circulatory system, your lymph system doesn’t have a pump that provides circulation. When you do activities such as jumping on a trampoline, it promotes circulation of lymph tissue, which allows the built-up toxins to be excreted by your body, naturally detoxifying yourself. The vibrations caused by jumping and landing helps to push lymphatic fluids out of tissues, which reduces the unsightly appearance of cellulite. Stimulating the lymphatic system is also proven to help prevent cancer.
The increased circulation caused by cardio activity helps your digestive tract move food along and force out waste. Regular exercise helps promote the growth of good bacteria in your intestinal tract, which is responsible for breaking down your food. This can also help decrease swelling by returning fluids to your digestive and cardiovascular systems. On a side note, it is not recommended to jump within two hours after eating a meal.
One of the obvious benefits of jumping on trampolines, and any exercise in general, is increased muscle strength and tone. Although jumping is predominantly a lower body and core workout, an indoor trampoline park offers the ability to jump to a full body workout, without consciously trying to!
