Trampoline Health Benefits
Author: Jump Star Trampoline Date Posted:29 May 2012
Did you know that a 10 minute jump on a JUMP STAR Trampoline is equivalent to a 30 minute run? According to a study completed by NASA, this means jumping is 68% more efficient than running.
Jumping on a trampoline is a moderate-to-high level aerobic workout that aids in maintaining cardiovascular fitness. Jumping will increase your heart rate while taking less time out of your busy schedule.
On a JUMP STAR Trampoline, you can complete multiple movements from one interval to the next. Unlike typical modes of exercise that only allow for one movement (such as running on a treadmill, riding a bicycle or stationary bike, exercising on an elliptical, or climbing a stair stepper), the active rest recovery period allows for an extended workout time.
Low Impact Exercise
Jumping on a JUMP STAR Trampoline is a low-impact exercise. A jumper’s vertical acceleration and deceleration are absorbed by the trampoline mat, taking up 80% of the shock.
The repetitive action of jumping improves bone mineral content and builds the musculoskeletal system. Each landing from a jump is double the force of gravity, which develops muscle strength over time and prevents bone diseases such as osteoporosis.
Detoxifying and lymphatic drainage
Bouncing on a trampoline stimulates the free-flowing lymphatic drainage system, helping rid your body of toxins, trapped protein, bacteria, viruses, and other cell waste. The acceleration, deceleration, and gravity of jumping on a trampoline create the ideal conditions for cleansing waste materials from our cells.
Physical activity makes you feel happy, positive, and self-confident. Endorphins, the positive mood-enhancing chemicals released during exercise, are triggered when jumping. An added benefit is the sheer fun factor of jumping up and down. Jumping on a JUMP STAR Trampoline will give you the peace of mind that you’re safe, leaving you free to smile, laugh, and feel happy!
