The joys of trampolining are evident just by watching as kids fly through the air. Yet, you may not realize just how much each flip and jump is doing for their mind and body.
These amazing benefits of trampolining will have you eager to get started on learning new tricks that you can show off to your friends.
Staying Fit While Having Fun
Trampolining is a low impact form of exercise that is so fun that you don’t even notice that you are getting a workout. As you jump, you strengthen your cardiovascular system, burn calories and build stronger muscles.
Clear Toxins From Your Body
Your body is constantly being bombarded by toxins in the environment. Fortunately, your body has a lymphatic system that is designed to help flush out toxins so that you stay healthier. This system relies upon body movements to help it function properly.
The jumping motions that you do on the trampoline help to open up the valves in your lymphatic system to encourage better lymph flow. While you might not notice the toxins being cleansed from your body, you should feel it in your increased energy level.
Build Strong Bones
The majority of your bone mass is formed during early childhood and adolescence. In fact, most people reach their peak bone mass in their 20s. Starting out with a higher bone mass helps to guard against health conditions such as osteoporosis as you age.
Jumping on a trampoline generates just enough stress on the bones to stimulate them to strengthen.
Feel More Self-Confident
Trampolining can be as simple as you jumping up and down, but it is way more fun when you learn how to do tricks.
During your specialty camp classes, you start with easy tricks such as a tuck jump and seat drop. Then, you get the opportunity to move up to doing more advanced tricks such as a front or backflip.
With each new skill that you learn, you’ll feel your self-confidence rise. This new level of confidence also affects other areas of your life.
You’ll discover that it is much easier to try new things at home, school, and camp when you’ve already conquered your fears on the trampoline.
Generate a Positive Mindset
Every jump that you take helps to trigger the release of endorphins in your brain that flood your body. This makes it virtually impossible to be in a bad mood while you jump, which is why you only see people smiling during their trampoline lessons.
This increased state of happiness can last for hours after you jump, and the positive attitude that you develop carries into your other camp activities.
Exercise doesn’t have to be a chore when you have access to a trampoline, and you’ll love feeling your mind and body grow stronger with every lesson that you take.
Keep in mind that you can also practice your new skills using a mini trampoline or a full-sized one at home so that you can continue to reap the benefits of your new favorite sport all year long.
