How to Keep the Family Healthy and Happy

Aug 4, 2008
Trampolines were once considered children's toys, but today adults around the world are discovering the benefits of mini trampoline exercise. These benefits can include improved blood flow, increased energy, and an increase in overall fitness. This easy and fun form of exercise takes no special skill and can be performed by nearly anyone.

I don't know about you, but, I like them mostly because they are fun to use. And if I can burn off a few calories, even better!

Mini trampolines, or urban rebounders as the kids call them these days, are small enough to fit in most homes and are light enough that even senior citizens or people will little muscle tone can move them out of their storage place and into position without help. There is no special equipment required other than the trampoline itself, and it can be set up in any room in the house or even outdoors.

Buying a trampoline is easy and usually doesn't require a trip to a special sporting goods store. You can find them in discount stores with the fitness equipment, and they are among the more affordable equipment there. You can buy a small trampoline for a small home or a larger trampoline if you have more space. You can even find a foldable model if you travel often so that you can enjoy the benefits of mini trampoline jumping even on the road.

The fitness benefits of mini trampoline exercise can be felt with just a few minutes of use per day. If you are out of shape, you might want to start off with just 10 minutes a day, then gradually work up to 20 or 30 minutes. The aerobic benefits of "rebounding" will keep your heart healthy and cut down on excess body fat.

And did I mention that its just plain fun?

Mini trampolines can be used while you're watching TV, listening to music, or even having a conversation. They can be enjoyed by children, adults, and seniors alike, making them a great investment in your whole family's fitness. A few minutes on the mini trampoline every day will allow the entire family to be more energetic, feel less stress, and experience better sleep. Your biggest worry might be having to deal with how to schedule everyone who wants a turn.

The health benefits of mini trampolines are evident, but we should not overlook the fact that jumping on a mini trampoline is just plain fun. The act of bouncing can bring out the child in us, and while we're bouncing it's hard to ignore the glee of defying gravity. Whether you bounce for health or for fun, urban rebounders are the most convenient and beneficial forms of exercise available.

When you're comparing exercise equipment, its clear that no other piece of fitness gear is going to be used by all members of your family like an urban rebounder. Keep the family together, healthy and happy - thats what its all about isnt it?
