Trampoline bouncing is the natural activity that most adults have forgotten all about. As children we love the feeling of bouncing on our beds, using pogo sticks, and just plain jumping up and down. It's not adult to bounce, we think. Yet all one needs to do is get on a friend's backyard trampoline and all of that natural fun and excitement comes rushing back into us. Then we become hooked.

Trampoline Bouncing Is Good for Us

The health benefits of trampoline bouncing are well known to most health researchers. It improves a host of bodily functions and if done correctly is a safe form of exercise. Bouncing will improve your balance, muscle tone, agility, timing, flexibility, strength, and overall well-being. The aerobic benefits alone are worth the price of a backyard trampoline.

Watching children bouncing on a trampoline helps us to remember the energy and joy we had as youths. They seemingly have no fear as they bounce, wave their arms in the air, and laugh with delight as they do. As you watch them you begin to remember how much fun it was to be a kid. Then you climb onto the trampoline and experience it for yourself.

At first you will feel a bit frightened. That's understandable since you haven't been as high in the air without a floor under your feet since you were their age. The fear seems to ebb as you find your heart pounding and your spirits lightening while you too begin to wave your arms in the air and begin to giggle and laugh while you're trampoline bouncing. Go ahead and give it a try. It isn't just for kids, and you'll find it infinitely more fun to exercise by trampoline bouncing rather than by jogging or going to a fitness center.
