As I sit here writing this, my kids are jumping on our Springfree Trampoline. Being outside is at the top of their priority list each morning, and the first thing they do when we get out there is head towards that trampoline. It also tends to be the last thing they do before bed time. Our Springfree Trampoline is the thing we love but didn’t know we needed.
There’s a lot of talk about obesity and healthy lifestyles these days, both for adults and children. Playing outside in the fresh air is great, but are we doing enough to get our heart rates up? It’s been said that ten minutes jumping on a trampoline is equivalent to a 30 minute run. That’s some serious cardio! It’s also a lower-impact work out, which is great news for those with bad knees and backs!
My kids love to see me and their Daddy jump on our Springfree Trampoline too, and I have to admit, you can’t help but smile and giggle when you do it! It makes you feel like a kid again!
If you have a child with excess amounts energy or sensory issues, a trampoline can be a beautiful tool to help with regulation! I previously worked full time in special education and I’ve seen how a few minutes of jumping can help with focus, charged up emotions, and balancing issues. It’s truly an amazing tool that can bring a great sense of calmness to someone struggling!
Springfree Trampoline also gives you the option of adding tgoma, an interactive gaming system that connects sensor pads to an ipad app. The mats placed on four points around the trampoline can detect your location, how high you’re jumping, and the calories you’re burning. Fun and challenging games give an added dimension of fun and keep you moving instead of staying in one place.
It’s wonderful when you can find a form of exercise that can be done right at home and doesn’t actually feel like work. It’s an activity the entire family came be around for and encourage each other in. Having a trampoline on property also means no expensive gym membership and no excuses about not having the time.
These are just a few of the benefits that adding a Springfree Trampoline has brought to our lives. It truly is the thing we love but didn’t know we needed. We’re very grateful to have such fun outdoor door on our property!
