A trampoline is always a part of a gymnastics team's workout equipment. Quite simply there's no better way of improving balance. Actually, regular use of a trampoline can improve performance in any sport and can also help individuals who would like to improve their balance and coordination for any reason.

Who Uses Gymnastics Trampolines?

Of course, trampoline gymnastics is also a sport in its own right. Gymnastics trampolines are nearly always large and rectangular in shape. That doesn't stop a lot of sportsmen from using round trampolines to practice for other sports, such as snowboarding, wakeboarding and skateboarding, though.

If you are purchasing a trampoline for any kind of gymnastics practice, make sure that the product you buy is in compliance with regulations regarding gymnastics. These vary from state to state, so you'll have to ask. You will probably find all the information you need from USA Gymnastics Online.

Also make sure you have all the necessary accessories for both safety and comfort. Plenty of trampoline safety pads, both around the edges of the trampoline itself and on the floor, are essentials. For beginners, safety nets are also in order. No children should ever be allowed on a trampoline without adult supervision. In addition, it is an absolute rule that no more than one person should ever use the trampoline at any one time.
