Trampolining for 10 minutes provides the equivalent benefits to a 30 minute run. Studies show that trampolining for 10 minutes is 68% more effective than a 33 minute cardiovascular workout - trampolining also stimulates cardiovascular flow in a way that is beneficial for ridding the body of waste and toxins.
Trampolining can aid in fighting anxiety, depression and stress, as it increases endorphins released by the brain, which trigger positive feelings! Studies have shown that regular trampoline sessions can also help relaxation and sleeping patterns, giving you more energy when you need it.
Regular trampoline sessions improve your posture and general muscle health. British Trampoline Coach John Beer says "Your core-stability muscles are almost constantly engaged to keep you stable and balanced, meaning a tauter, stronger stomach and lower back." Trampolining can also reduce your percentage body fat, and improve tone and suppleness in the muscles!
Trampolining reduces the risk of injury to joints (such as ankles and knees) when compared to ground-level sports, as mats and padding absorb up to 80% of the shock from the rebound. For people with lower mobility or for those undergoing rehabilitation this is highly beneficial.
Trampolining increases balance and co-ordination. You are able to learn to control the position of your body by coordinating the arms and legs whilst bouncing. Regular trampolining is therefore useful when participating in other sports which require hand-eye and general co-ordination.
Regular trampoline activity can increase the body's metabolic rate, and so increases its ability to burn calories efficiently. Cells in the body actually become stronger which improves immune cell activity, which means you have a decreased chance of becoming ill!
Recent studies have found that trampolining for just 6 minutes a week can help build stronger bones! This can help older individuals reduce the chances of osteoporosis with some simple bouncing exercises.
