9 Surprising Trampoline Health Benefits You Won’t Believe

A girl jumps on a trampoline, her legs are both up and she's giving the peace sign.

Trampoline Health Benefits You Won’t Believe

If you have ever jumped on a trampoline, you’ll know how much fun it is. But, one thing you may have never considered is how many health benefits that bouncing on it can have.

One of the best feelings is that perception of weightlessness when you’re at the top of your jump. But, did you know that on the way down, you are experiencing great gravitational force? Trampoline jumping is not only fun but, it will help you become more active and in essence, healthier all around.

For us, adding a Springfree trampoline has been life-changing. Not only do our girls love playing outside more but, Darasak and I have been getting in and taking turns jumping towards health. Read on to discover all of the trampoline health benefits you would not believe!

Let's Get Started!

1. It’s a Fun Workout

Sometimes, working out and getting active can be a chore. I find that with a trampoline you’ll be having so much fun that you may not realize the workout you’re getting.

With the Springfree trampoline, you can add the tgoma system to help you set your goals and achieve them with the tgomaFit game. The game will let you exercise with a professional trampoline coach.

You can choose to try 26 different exercises and watch your live calorie burn. Who needs a gym when you have a trampoline?

Plus, when you can get the whole family taking a turn, you’re getting active together and there’s nothing better than that!

2. Incredibly Efficient Workout

Did you know that a 10-minute jump on a Springfree Trampoline is equivalent to a 30-minute run? According to a study completed by NASA, this means jumping is 68% more efficient than running.

3. Ups Your Cardiovascular Fitness

Being heart-healthy is incredibly important. Since jumping on a trampoline is a moderate-to-high level aerobic workout, it gets your heart pumping.

When you increase your heart rate, it increases blood circulation and you improve your heart health. Plus, you do it in less time, all while bouncing!

4. Helps to Strengthen Your Legs

While everyone is different, you may notice significant increases in both leg power and leg strength. After all, you are bouncing up and down and using the power of your legs and core.

It’s no wonder that gymnastics coaches often add trampoline exercising to their athletes routine.

5. It’s Low Impact

Jumping on a trampoline is a low impact exercise. A jumper’s vertical acceleration and deceleration are absorbed by the trampoline mat, taking up 80% of the shock.

It is a great option for seniors, physically-challenged, and those recuperating from accidents or injuries.

Even if you’ve been taking it easy and being sedentary, it’s a great way to get back in the game towards fitness.

6. Builds Stronger Bones

Just by doing the repetitive action of jumping up and down on the trampoline can improve overall bone mineral content and builds the musculoskeletal system.

Each landing from a jump is double the force of gravity, which develops muscle strength over time and prevents bone diseases such as osteoporosis.

Since the trampoline pad is bouncy and absorbs a large amount of the impact of your landing, your bones and joints are protected and strengthened at the same time. Now, that is pretty awesome!

7. It’s a Feel Good Activity

Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. Perhaps, some may argue that it is THE most important to be healthy. Did you know that jumping on a trampoline makes you feel happy, positive and self-confident?

For me, I even feel a bit nostalgic about the worry-free days of being a kid.

But, trampolining produces endorphins, the positive mood-enhancing chemicals released during exercise.

So, that alone is enough to make you feel happy! Personally, I feel even happier knowing that I’m on a Springfree trampoline, one of the most ultra-safe trampolines in the world!

8. It Improves Lymphatic Drainage and Detoxifies

We are constantly bombarded by toxins and sometimes, they make us feel a bit sluggish. Bouncing on a trampoline stimulates the free-flowing lymphatic drainage system.

This helps your body to flush out toxins, trapped protein, bacteria, viruses and other cell waste.

The acceleration, deceleration, and gravity of jumping on a trampoline create the ideal conditions for cleansing waste materials from our cells. How about that?

I’m down with detoxifying while having fun!

9. Improves Your Lung Capacity

The folks at NASA are incredibly smart but, of course, we knew that! During one of their studies about jumping, they discovered that oxygen is the most vital nutrient for the human body.

Jumping helps your body circulate oxygen and increases your energy.

When your body is highly oxygenated, it makes it more immune to disease germs and rogue cells. They are anaerobic, meaning they cannot survive in a highly oxygenated environment. Pretty cool!

So while I am sure you all know that jumping on a trampoline is fun, now you know how many health benefits it can actually have for your body. Body and mind! Plus, it is so simple that it is a great activity for all ages. It is definitely a fun way to get active and Springfree has all different sizes!
