Quick – what has six legs, is 14ft high and provides heaps of fun? If you guessed “a 14 foot trampoline”, then you would be correct! Children and kids-at-heart love to bounce away their never-ending energy while enjoying the sunshine and fresh air, and a trampoline can provide just that.
Trampolines have come a long way since looking like they belong in a clown act, but with new advances in safety measures, trampolines are now even safer, sturdier and more secure than ever. The latest range of 14ft and 12ft trampolines feature waterproof mats and a UV-stabilised wide spring skirt for protection against the harsh sun's rays. All trampolines also now feature strong safety nets to ensure jumpers don't fall off and seriously injure themselves.
Trampolines aren't just for fun for you and your family – they also provide incredible health benefits.
Physical and psychological benefits of trampolining
First of all, a trampoline works the muscles and cardiovascular systems of the jumper. It can increase oxygen capacity, firms and tones the muscles with every single jump, and strengthens the heart. It can also improve your sense of balance.
Did you know that 10 minutes of jumping is the equivalent of a 30 minute run? The only difference is that using a trampoline takes up to 80% of the stress on your weight-bearing joints. It's the ideal option for those who are recuperating from injuries or anyone wanting to start an exercise program that isn't too overwhelming. You might want to ditch the treadmill and put on some knee pads instead!
The feeling of defying gravity even just for an instant is also a pretty exhilarating feeling. Most importantly, playing on a trampoline will make you laugh and smile. There's no greater medicine than a good chuckle.
