Many people are using trampolines to exercise and stay fit — and they love doing it.
One of the main medical concerns of this decade is the sharp increase in childhood obesity. A proven solution in combating obesity is an active lifestyle.
An active lifestyle includes healthy eating habits and at least two and a half hours of exercise per week. A good guideline for exercise is 20 to 30 minutes of moderate activity per day outside of school.
One fun way to get exercise is to use a trampoline. Jumping is exhilarating and provides an easy way to work muscles and increase heart rate. Trampolines also help increase flexibility and improve reflexes.
Based on a recent online survey conducted by Super Fun Trampolines, the top three sports enjoyed by children are bicycling, basketball and trampolining. The average number of hours spent trampolining was 3 per week, 33% more time than cycling or basketball.
Observing proper safety precautions is important in any sport. Cycling requires a helmet, as do football and baseball. Trampolining also requires participants to follow safety precautions.
