Health benefits of using trampolines

Regular exercise benefits
Sometimes motivating yourself from the couch into the gym can be way too difficult. The benefit of Fly High is that our facility revolves entirely around a fun activity that just so happens to be really good exercise. Depending on your weight and what you’re doing, trampoline exercise can burn up to 1,000 calories in one hour. During a twenty minute bounce session you burn as much as an hour of running. Which would be more fun?

Besides calorie expenditure, regular exercise can help your body in a variety of other ways. It’s a natural way to boost your energy level and mood. Regular exercise also promotes a more efficient, deeper sleep. You’ll be able to fall asleep easier and wake up feeling more refreshed and ready to start your day. Doctors recommend that you engage in at least thirty minutes of exercise per day to stay happy and healthy.



Low impact exercise benefits
Low impact exercise reduces strain on muscles, tendons, and joints. You’re still receiving the respiratory and cardiovascular benefits without putting undue stress on the body. This type of exercise is perfect for everyone—beginners, seniors, and athletes who are cross training to reduce injury.


Trampolines and increased bone density
Bone density is dependent on two things: your diet and your activity level. Any motion that causes muscles to pull at the bone engages bone growth. In a lot of cases, these weight-bearing high intensity movements can put too much stress on the body, as discussed in the last section.

Rebounding, which is the motion that your body does when bouncing on a trampoline, has special benefits to increasing bone density. Your can engage your bone growth without fatigue or possible injury. For example: When you jump on a trampoline your body receives the same weight-bearing effects as jogging with the impact level of walking. Not only that, but isn’t it more fun than walking or jogging?



How can children benefit from Fly High activities?
Jumping on a trampoline teaches balance and concentration. Kids learn how to be in control of their body at all times. Beyond that, trampolines also gets kids off the couch and moving around

There are tons of things pulling at kid’s attention, especially with so much technology at their fingertips. Kids forgo the outdoors for computer time and gaming systems. This isn’t healthy—people of all ages need to get at least thirty minutes of movement activity per day at minimum. Not getting this can affect mood, sleep, and their overall health.Instead of lecturing your kids about the benefits of staying active, why not introduce them to something that is both fun and great for their health? So next time you have free afternoon, instead of going to the movies—why not try something new!
