The Health Benefits of Trampoline Jumping
Trampoline jumping has numerous positive effects on our health and happiness. Bouncing on a trampoline not only effectively strengthens our cardiovascular system by working our muscles, but also activates our metabolism by improving our circulation.
Moderately intense trampoline jumping, when performed on regular occasions, not only strengthens our muscles, but also increases our heart rate which increases the circulation of oxygen in our body thus helping to increase our cardiovascular fitness and core strength overall.
Although trampolining is a high intensity workout, it produces a reasonably low amount of impact on our joints unlike other types of exercises, such as jogging for example. This is because the trampoline pad and springs absorb almost 80% of the shock that would otherwise be absorbed by our joints. Therefore, we are less likely to get joint injuries whilst trampolining that may incur during other forms of physical activity.
Trampolining helps to stimulate the production of ‘Endorphins’ in our body. Endorphins are the chemicals that are known as mood enhancing chemicals and are naturally produced within our body when we are exercising. Trampolining is so much fun for all ages that it is sure to lift our mood and make us feel happy, thus helping to contribute to our overall positive mental health.
