We are all very familiar with the benefits of exercise. Health care professionals have been banging the drum for long enough now to hopefully get the message across, but just to re-cap here are just a few of the advantages of regular physical activity;
- It strengthens the muscles, (including the heart which is a muscle!)
- It reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.
- It reduces the risk of obesity.
- It can help with weight control.
- It maintains blood sugar levels.
- It strengthens bones.
- It releases loads of positive endorphins to chase away those winter blues thus having a real positive effect on overall mental health.
The problem is, in the winter time going out for a run or a bike ride doesn’t always seem that appealing. Cold, dark and rainy nights? No thank you! But wait, what if there was an exercise to do indoors, that was loads of fun, used up tonnes of energy and was extremely sociable to boot? Well there is, and it’s trampolining! Want to find out more? Read on….
The benefits of Trampolining
Trampolining is first and foremost, great fun! Who doesn’t have a smile on their face when having a go on a trampoline? It’s a liberating feeling bouncing up and down and feeling like you are weightless, and did you know, 10 minutes exercise on a trampoline is the equivalent of a half hour run?!
Furthermore, it is much more low impact on your joints, so unlike the dreaded treadmill, you can bounce up and down enjoying your workout without fear of causing long-term damage to your knees, ankles or hips in the process.
In addition, trampolining gives you;
- An improved sense of balance.
- Increases your oxygen capacity.
- Stimulates your metabolism.
- Strengthens leg muscles.
- Is an overall body workout.
- Improves your sense of vitality.
So really, when you look at all of the benefits to trampolining, you’ve got to ask what’s not to love?
