The Benefits of Jumping

Bouncing on a trampoline is the fun way to lose weight, build fitness, relieve stress and even slow aging.

Jumping on a mini trampoline is a challenging cardio workout that’s easy and fun. Bouncing may feel easier and be more pleasurable to non-exercisers than other forms of cardio workouts because is does not strain your joints and muscles. The benefits of trampolining are not too familiar to casual exercisers but physiotherapists have been using it for a very long time. It prevents injuries and also cures them. These are a few main reasons why you should try jumping.

Trampolining can strengthen bone density and joints and ligaments, reduce pain in arthritic joints.

Jumping can decrease levels of stress hormones like cortisol, and increase endorphins which are your body’s feel-good chemicals. Also, the simple joy of jumping can take your mind off everyday problems. Of course, seeing the physical improvements in your body like weight loss and increased health can help you feel better, too.

Jumping on a mini trampoline is one of the fastest ways to lose weight without getting injured because it reduces body fat, increases the muscle to fat ratio and increases the efficiency with which the body burns carbohydrates.

Our skin is a one large community of cells. Imagine every cell in our body is a small balloon. Now jumping on a mini trampoline strengthens those little balloons (cells) because cells need to resist the increased G force. With time, the cell’s membrane gets thicker, firmer, and gains elasticity.


Think you are too old to bounce? There is no age limit with this exercise. Jumping on a mini trampoline is suitable for everyone. The whole family is able to benefit, from toddlers to grandparents. Jumping is ideal for those of an older age as it provides a safe, gentle, no-impact exercise. Unlike other exercises it does not damage the knees or back. Trampolining can strengthen bone density and by strengthening the joints and ligaments this exercise can reduce pain in some arthritic joints.
