If you have ever been on a trampoline, you know how much fun they are. Well, trampolines are also a fun way to exercise. Researchers claim there to be many benefits of trampolining. Trampolining has been part of aerobic workout routines since the 1980s and has even been an Olympic sport since 2000.

According to Collin Linneweber, trampolining works on abdominal muscles, legs, thighs, and buttocks. Trampolining is considered a safe workout and it is unlikely a person will damage any joints. It can help trigger the removal of toxins and other poisonous substances in our bodies. Linneweber highlights that “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports and Medicine list jumping on a trampoline as a moderate-intensity aerobic exercise” and should be done for 30-60 minutes, five days per week.

According to Morgan Johnston, trampolining is good for the heart, it helps build strong bones, it strengthens your muscles, it helps with coordination, it relieves stress and boosts the mood, it tones the body, it can assist in weight loss, it aids the lymphatic system, and it improves energy levels.

Trampolining improves cardiovascular health and increases leg strength. It is a fun sport and anyone can participate in it. It also increases metabolism and lowers the chance of heart disease. According to Health Fitness Revolution, “The increased blood flow to the brain and greater enzyme activity that result from using a trampoline are thought to heighten mental alertness and promote faster reaction times, enhanced vision and improved balance.”

Trampolining can help reduce or eliminate cellulite, a condition in which fat causes dimpling of the skin, especially around the thighs and buttocks. The skin may look bumpy around such areas. Since trampolining strengthens the bones and joints, it also helps prevent osteoporosis. Trampolining also increases oxygen circulation in the whole body which leads to increased cell energy. The rebounding process also helps deal with varicose veins, a condition in which the veins in the legs enlarge.

Carla Lourenco, Dulce Esteves, Rui Corredeira, and Andre Seabra conducted a study in 2015 that consisted of 16 children diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) who were placed in a 32-week program of trampoline training. The observations included a significant improvement in leg strength and some improvement in the upper limbs.

Trampolining is a fun and easy exercise because it does not require concentrated excess pressure on any specific limbs such as legs, feet, or arms. In addition, trampolining even improves the effect of other exercises. So, if you are looking to start some kind of light workout, you should definitely try adopting a habit of trampolining 30 minutes a day and five days a week.
