I am all about finding ways to make exercising fun and easy. And what I’ve discovered since investing in a Springfree Trampoline is that they’re not actually just a great way to have fun, but they’re also great for your health too! What’s even better, it barely feels like exercise!
Here are 6 reasons why you’ll bounce yourself to better health and happiness with a Springfree trampoline:
1. Getting outdoors
Spending time outside is super important for your health. Exposing your eyes to natural light helps to regulate the hormones that control your sleep and mood - so more time outside means a better night’s sleep and overall increased feelings of happiness.
2. Effective exercise
Trampolining is actually an incredibly effective form of exercise. According to research from NASA, 10 minutes of rebound exercise such as trampolining is more a more beneficial workout than 30 minutes of running! That means jumping on a trampoline helps boost cardiovascular fitness, without the need to set aside large amounts of time for exercising. It’s also a low-impact way to workout, so particularly good for anyone with joint injuries or pain, as your vertical acceleration and deceleration is absorbed by the trampoline mat, taking up to 80% of the shock.
3. Pre-planned workouts
On the subject of exercise, the incredible smart technology built into Springfree trampolines is also a huge benefit because it means you can easily follow pre-planned workouts on your trampoline, while also monitoring your progress and seeing how many calories you have burnt throughout your exercise. The sensors on the mat record your workout and send the data to a tablet which can be connected via Bluetooth to your trampoline. Because there are multiple movement
4. Stress management
Physical activity makes you feel GOOD. There’s no denying that bouncing is FUN and is undoubtedly a fabulous way to get over a long day in the office. Fresh air, oxygen in the lungs, feel good endorphins and a good laugh will have you feeling energised and alive.
5. Improved coordination
As well as making you feel better, jumping can also help improve coordination, balance and reflexes, which is not just good for development in kids, but also for keeping adults on their game too!
6. Stronger Bones
The repetitive action of jumping improves 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.
These are just 6 benefits that you’ll experience by having a trampoline in your backyard. So, if you’re looking for a fun, easy way to improve your health and the health of your family, then Springfree trampolines are for you!
