Health Benefits of Trampoline Exercise
Did you know that trampoline exercise is 68% more effective than your half-hour jog? It may sound too good to be true, but the health benefits of jumping on a trampoline are no myth. Even a study by American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that a 20-minute trampoline workout routine burns as many calories as running 10 km/h for the same amount of time.
Other reasons why jumping on a trampoline is good exercise include:
- Increased circulation
- Improved balance and coordination
- Better core strength
- Improved bone density
- Increased cardiovascular fitness
- Regulation of the metabolism
- Increased muscle strength
Trampolining is a vigorous aerobic workout, which means that it increases the rate at which your heart pumps blood, and therefore oxygen, around your body.
Not only that, but trampolining provides a rush of positive hormones and compounds—like adrenaline, dopamine, and serotonin. Also just as important, is a healthy lymphatic system, which maintains your body’s fluid levels, filters out toxic material, and is an integral part of your immune system. It requires up-and-down body movement to move the lymph fluids throughout vessels inside your body. Trampolining can increase lymph flow by up to 30 times because you’re alternating between weightlessness and double gravitational force.
It reinforces your immune system and helps your body to transport nutrients and cleanse itself of waste!
