Trampolines utilize body weight and the anti-gravity capacity of a taut surface to rebound users into a briefly weightless state. Strength is demanded to begin the cycle and to land after rebounding, leading to increased balance as well as greater cardiovascular capacity. Whereas jogging provides similar results, use of a trampoline diminishes the stress of impact on hard surfaces. This allows, too, for the addition of dumbbells or other weights to a workout routine without adding major stress to joints and ligaments.
No longer confined to circuses and backyards, trampolines are today made to accommodate the individual user. For those nervous about keeping balance, stability rails are often provided. These grip bars also act as effective safety handles for youngsters who may wish to burn off energy on these mini surfaces.
The dimensions of the surface should be considered when purchasing, as well as the height from the floor. Be sure to check weight capacity, especially if you think you might be adding weights to your routine. Easy assembly is standard. Storage options should be kept in mind.
For a fun and efficient, not to mention low-impact, means to increase your stamina and strength in the comfort of your home-workout area, turn to a sturdy, modern trampoline.
