#10 Top Benefits of Trampoline Exercise

Working out on a trampoline has endless benefits! Also referred to as a rebounder, trampoline fitness can help improve cardiovascular health, balance and coordination, bone density, reduce stress, boost your mood … you know what, we’ll just go ahead and give you our TOP 10.


1. SUPER FUN & EFFICIENT WAY TO KEEP FIT

According to NASA’s Journal of Applied Physiology, rebounding exercise is 68% more efficient than jogging. A study from NASA also found that a 150 pound individual spending 1 hour on a rebounder, will burn more calories than the same person jogging for an hour. Rebounding on a trampoline is a metabolic supporting exercise – if you rebound at a moderate pace, you can still breathe comfortably. It gets you moving without stressing your metabolism.


2. IMPROVES CARDIOVASCULAR FITNESS

One study, published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine, found that trampoline exercise can improve cardiovascular fitness in both young and older individuals. The study, which included 32 participants, found that trampoline exercise significantly increased heart rate and oxygen uptake compared to other forms of low-impact exercise, such as cycling or walking.


3. INCREASES DETOXIFICATION & CLEANSING OF THE BODY

Trampoline exercise helps to facilitate the body’s natural detoxification mechanism. Rebounding is a unique form of exercise in which a weightless state is achieved at the top of each jump and landing. This shift in gravity benefits every muscle and cell of the body and provides huge benefits to the lymphatic system.

4. INCREASES LYMPHATIC FLOW

The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs which help to get rid of body toxins, waste and other unwanted materials in the body. Unlike the cardiovascular system, in which the heart automatically pumps blood, the lymphatic system purely relies on our body movement as a pump.

Lymphatic flow relies completely on our conscious movement. Rebounding on a trampoline is a whole body exercise, and it may cause the lymphatic valves to open and close simultaneously which will cause increase lymph flow as much as 15x.


5. IMPROVES IMMUNE SYSTEM FUNCTION

The lymphatic system is a vital part of the immune system. It is a defense mechanism against viruses, bacteria, diseases and infection. The lymph contains a high number of a certain type of white blood cells called lymphocytes, which are responsible for fighting infections in the body. This boosts immunity, removes toxins, and in turn, also helps slow down the aging process. So many wins.


6. IMPROVES BALANCE & POSTURE

Bouncing on a trampoline can stimulate the vestibular system in the inner ear, leading to improved balance. This has been confirmed by a study published in the Journal of Aging and Physical Activity, which found that trampoline exercise can enhance balance and coordination in older adults. The research, which involved 60 participants, discovered that trampoline exercise significantly improved balance and coordination compared to other low-impact exercise forms.


7. REDUCES BODY FAT & INCREASES MUSCLE

Trampoline exercises firm the legs, thighs, abdomen, arms and hips, increases agility and improves sense of balance. The gentle detoxification that occurs when you are rebounding encourages fat loss.


8. REDUCES STRESS AND LIFTS MOOD

In addition to these physical benefits, trampoline exercise can also improve mental well-being. A study published in the Journal of Exercise Science and Fitness found that trampoline exercise can reduce stress and improve mood in individuals with depression. The study, which included 30 participants, found that trampoline exercise significantly reduced stress and improved mood compared to other forms of low-impact exercise.


9. SUPPORTS PELVIC FLOOR HEALTH

Bouncing on a trampoline can help to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which can support pelvic floor health. These muscles can become weak due to pregnancy, childbirth, aging, or other factors, leading to problems such as incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. When you bounce on a trampoline, the muscles in the pelvic floor have to contract and relax repeatedly to support the body and maintain balance, which can help to strengthen them.


10. SUPPORTS BONE HEALTH

A study published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research found that trampoline exercise can increase bone density in postmenopausal women. The study, which included 32 participants, found that trampoline exercise significantly increased bone density in the spine and hip compared to other forms of low-impact exercise.


Bounce workouts are a fun, effective way to get in shape and improve your overall health and well-being.


You can try high energy, low impact trampoline workouts in-studio (Sea Bright & Middletown, New Jersey) or stream them on on-demand.






Be sure to consult a healthcare professional before starting any new exercise program, especially if you are pregnant or have any underlying health conditions.


Happy Bouncing!
