Parents are always looking for activities that they can enjoy as a family and trampoline parks have become increasingly popular. Not only will your kids be smiling, laughing, and having good old-fashioned fun, there are significant benefits of visiting a trampoline park! Beyond having a great workout with friends and family, trampolines help maintain good health, improve coordination, and have been proven to make you HAPPIER!
Benefits Of Visiting A Trampoline Park
With age, your metabolism starts to slow down. Getting into a good jumping routine will increase your metabolic rate, burn calories and kick your endorphins into high gear! 10 minutes of jumping has been found to be about the same amount of exercise as 30 minutes of running!
HELP WITH ANXIETY, SENSORY ISSUES, AUTISM & SPECIAL NEEDS
The rhythmic action of a trampoline can be very soothing. In fact, we have several families who make weekly visits to our park for their kids with special needs to sit or lay on the trampolines and be slowly bounced. Creating a lot of movement within jumping will stimulate senses and allow a child with sensory issues to focus on jumping and this will help the child not feel overwhelmed. Such as, trampolines are quite commonly used in therapy for kids on the spectrum or with sensory processing disorders. Lastly, having a child jump on trampolines prior to having an evening session of homework helps lower impulse control and allows that child to have better focus. This is a WIN-WIN!
By jumping in a trampoline park, you will increase your leg power and strength. You don’t have to worry about negative effects on your joints while working for your largest muscle groups. This can help with running, biking, and other outdoor activities. In addition, the act of bouncing on a trampoline helps strengthen the musculoskeletal system and increases bone density… giving kids stronger bones. A NASA study showed that trampolines are the best exercise to rebuild the lost bone tissue of astronauts who continued in a weightless state causing them to lose up to 15% bone mass in only 2 weeks in space.
You probably didn’t even know it, but while you are jumping on a trampoline your brain is fully engaged. It is occupied with ensuring your body parts are in sync with one another. Rebounding on a trampoline involves using both sides of the body at the same time, which can improve kids’ bilateral motor skills which can turn into better muscle control.
NO SCREEN TIME
One of the biggest battles with children these days is getting them off of their screens and enjoying the active play. Studies show that kids are spending less time outdoors or participating in activities than prisoners which equates to less than one hour. This is a scary fact and parents need to take an active role in getting their kids to enjoy physical activity visiting a trampoline park is the perfect solution!
MAKING YOU HAPPIER
Mental health is always a hot topic not only among adults but also among kids. It is not always easy for younger kids to figure out how to get out of their grumpy funk. With social interaction and exciting activities, your body releases natural endorphins which in return make you feel happier, and your mood increases. It is also proven to be a great stress reliever.
