4 Benefits Of Jumping On A Trampoline
There are numerous reasons why jumping on a trampoline is good for you. Aside from the obvious physical benefits, there are also other ones.
1. Fitness and Exercise
One of the biggest benefits of jumping is health and fitness, and using a trampoline is a big ✔️.
It keeps kids and adults (if you get on the trampoline too) fit and healthy, jumping on a trampoline for just 1 - 2 minutes gets your heart rate going.
2. Motor Development and Balance
Jumping on a trampoline encourages a child to constantly adjust their posture to maintain their balance, and to coordinate the movements of their body to keep up the momentum of the jumping and to avoid falling or crashing into the net.
This helps develop and improve the child’s overall gross motor skills, and also help in developing and improving their motor planning skills.
Aside from these, jumping on the trampoline also helps increase the integrity of the skeletal system (such as the tendons and ligaments) and aids in increasing bone density.
3. Sensory Development
The specific movement and jumping on a trampoline, in general, stimulates a child’s vestibular system in short this is linked to their balance and movement.
This is most significant for children who are disorganised or lack concentration due to hyperactivity.
When they are showing signs of hyperactivity, the best thing to do is get them on the trampoline and get them jumping.
This can help with concentration and also listen to their parents and teachers!
With the emergence of trampoline parks, and the available option of having your own trampoline at home, this gives parents and children the convenience of having all of the above-mentioned benefits within their fingertips.
Having a trampoline at home will give the parents the opportunity to provide a physical activity to their child to aid their overall development, this while still being able to provide some fun!
