A funny thing happened to me today, I went to a website that featured an elephant on a trampoline. After I got done snorting my coffee up my nose and recovering from the following choke and laugh – that guffaw aside – I was doing research on trampolines.
You remember the trampoline, right? The big round thing that you can bounce on like mad and your kids get a big giggle out of and you get even more in the way of laughter when their hair stands straight up from the generated static electricity?
I thought you might.
A trampoline is a fantastic fitness tool. In fact one of the best reasons to buy a trampoline is the health benefit it provides to the entire family. If your family has been looking for a way to address the rising concern of childhood obesity, investing in a trampoline may give you and your family some more active fun.
Studies have shown that children who use a trampoline regularly have fewer problems with obesity. Other benefits of playing on a trampoline include:
- Better balance
- Better coordination
- Increased agility
- Better flexibility
- Reduced chances of illness
You don’t have to be a child to enjoy the exercise on a trampoline. Bouncing for fifteen minutes is an excellent cardio workout for all ages. But one of the best things about the trampoline that I love is how my daughter laughs as she bounces around in circles.
Your children will love you and you will show your love for your children. Besides – who says just because it’s fun it can’t be good for you?
