A trampoline is a kind of strong but soft fabric joined to a frame by a lot of coiled springs, used as a springboard or landing area in gymnastics and acrobatics.

Jumping on a Trampoline is most times either for recreational purposes or for sporting activities. Jumping on a trampoline is simply standing on the surface of the trampoline. However, while you jump, you feel light in the air but very heavy at landing because of the strings, which will in turn help you to jump even higher than your self-aided jump. It is actually more fun than hard work. This exercise is said to have a lot of medical advantages than the very common exercises like jogging, giving the participant or jumper, a fusion of health and fitness benefits as he or she has fun. Some of the mind-blowing benefits of Jumping on a Trampoline is listed below:

It Aids Weight Loss

Researchers at NASA have discovered that a person who spends an hour jumping on a Trampoline will burn more calories, 68% higher than another person who spends the same one hour jogging. Jumping on a trampoline supports metabolism and it becomes quite effective in losing weight when you jump at a moderate speed. Moving or jumping too fast will backfire in the attempt to lose weight and is not advisable.

It Helps To Get Rid Of Body Toxins

The disposal of body toxins and other waste materials in the body are surprisingly dependent on the conscious movement of the whole body, this is where jumping on a trampoline comes in. When you jump on a trampoline, our whole body is being engaged which gets your Lymphatic System (that is responsible for waste disposal) to work. It makes the lymphatic valves open and close rapidly, accelerating waste disposal by fifteen times.

It Improves Immune System  

The immune system is like a human antivirus. It fights against viruses, infections and diseases. Since the Lymphatic system is a part of it, white blood cells (cells that fight infections) are circulated as rapidly as the lymph valves open. These white blood cells (called lymphocytes) also destroy abnormal cells in the body that can slow down the work of the immune system. Jumping on a Trampoline boost the work of the immune system through the repairs of worn tissues and acceleration of the action of the red bone marrow.

It Strengthens Skeletal System

Jumping on a trampoline helps increase bone mass. Weight bearing exercises generally increases the bone mass. Since the gravitational pull while jumping on the trampoline is quite higher than usual, it takes its toll on the bone mass, strengthening joints, tendons and ligaments. This affects the whole skeletal system and generally strengthens the jumper. It also reduces the possibility of being stricken by illnesses such as Osteoporosis or Arthritis.
