There’s a reason people of every age love trampolines, and we’ve seen firsthand how our safe Springfree Trampoline design has changed lives for our customers. We wanted to share just a few of the ways we’ve seen trampolines launch people to new heights of personal health and family happiness.
1 - It’s like having a gym in your backyard. A NASA study shows that 10 minutes of jumping on the trampoline is the equivalent of 30 minutes of running—and you don’t have worry about driving to the gym only to find out someone else took your favorite parking spot and exercise bike. Plus, bouncing works out leg muscles and cardiovascular at the same time, so you’ll never skip leg day!
2 - It’s a great excuse for family time. Bring the whole family outside to bounce, and come up with games to play while the kids wait for their turn to bounce. Even better, using the waiting period to chat and catch up on what’s going on in their day and what they learned at school.
3 - It’s also a great way to keep the kids occupied. If you need some “me” time, it’s easy to catch a peaceful moment watching your children bounce, or an older child can supervise play while you catch up on chores inside. If you’re worried, remember that the Medium Round Springfree Trampoline is the only trampoline in the world to pass every safety check by the independent consumer groups CHOICE and Consumer NZ. (Some good ground rules: no flips, bounce one at a time, and zip up the trampoline when you’re done.)
4 - It’s amazing for children’s development. Studies show that bouncing on a trampoline helps people of all ages develop coordination and balance within 12-14 weeks. Plus, bouncing reinforces the musculoskeletal system. That’s why it was originally used to train astronauts. Bouncing on a responsive trampoline surface will give your children better coordination in other sports and physical activities, and give them stronger bones later in life, lowering their risk of osteoporosis.
5 - It’s low impact, but high fun! Many kinds of cardiovascular exercise, like jogging or soccer, take a toll on your joints. That’s because the surface you’re running is hard and causes high-impact jolts to your system. When you’re bouncing on a Springfree Trampoline, the surface absorbs the impact of your landing while simulating the effects of high gravity, allowing you to build muscle with less stress on your joints. That’s why trampolines are popular with physiotherapy!
6 - Springfree Trampolines come with a 10-year warranty. Unlike the treadmill that wears out, or the exercise bike with the pressure belt that keeps slipping, every Springfree Trampoline comes with a 10-year warranty and is built to withstand millions of jump cycles, so you can get the most of your family exercise equipment.
7 - You can work out your kids’ bodies and brains. Math Hopper is a great feature of the tgoma app that challenges kids to solve on-screen math problems with real-world bouncing. It’s great for kids of all skill levels, and offers kinesthetic learners a way to really “jump” into math education!
8 - It decreases your risk of life-threatening diseases. The risk for type 2 diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease are all lowered by regular daily exercise like trampoline bouncing, which also lowers stress, improves your body’s levels of happy hormones like serotonin and endorphins, and improves mood and sleep. (This is great for tuckering the kids out when they’re cranky or overexcited!)
9 - It will help you redefine “exercise.” One study showed that people who see physical activity as a fun pastime instead of “exercise” (something they have to do) were more likely to enjoy higher energy levels, control their eating and be more satisfied with their workout.
10 - You’ll feel like a kid again. A lot of parents buy Springfree Trampolines for their children, but after seeing how much fun their kids have, it’s their inner child who ends up hogging all the bounce time. Give it a week of watching the smiles on their faces and we bet you’ll be insisting on your turn for the next jump!
