If it’s been a while since you’ve jumped on a trampoline, I challenge you to have a bounce today! Ask your neighbour for a bounce on theirs, or drop into a Springfree Experience Centre. There’s one thing for sure, it’s exhilarating, not to mention a great work out! Just 5 minutes bouncing on a trampoline will get the blood flowing, expel the stress of the day and take you back to the 1980s when you spent your Summer holidays on your cousin’s trampoline. Now you know why the kids never want to get off their friend’s trampoline and why a trampoline would make the ultimate Christmas gift this year! 

In case you need any more convincing, here are 5 reasons to give the gift of bouncing this Christmas:

1. FUN MEETS FITNESS

All kids need to run, play, jump, laugh and breath in fresh air for their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Unfortunately, their need and desire to sit inside and play on electronic devices means less time spent outside moving those growing bodies. A trampoline in your backyard may be just the thing to encourage your kids (and you) to get active! The benefits of bouncing are well documented; not only can it improve fitness, it can increase flexibility, coordination, balance and confidence. 

Watch this video on just how much kids (and parents) love their trampoline.

2. BOUNCE ALL YEAR ROUND

Owning a trampoline in this gorgeous country of ours means we have access to our backyards most of the year – through every season! Our weather and lifestyle makes purchasing a trampoline a great investment. It’s just another reason to get outside, fire up the BBQ and spend some quality time with the family. 

3. ‘LOL’ GUARANTEED! 

Laugh

Bouncing on a trampoline guarantees laughing out loud. Try it for yourself! It’s impossible to bounce without smiling, and eventually the giggles start. And who doesn’t need more laughter in their lives? Research is telling us that laughter is not only great for reducing stress, it can minimize tension in the body, improve your mood and induce a number of physical changes in your body – read more about the health benefits of laughter.

4. YUMMY MUMMY 2016

A trampoline is more than just a toy for the kids! It’s your very own piece of cardio equipment, conveniently located in your backyard! And the best news is 10 minutes jumping on a trampoline is equivalent to approximately 35 minutes on a treadmill. Hmmm… 35 minutes sweating it out at the gym, pounding on a treadmill, watching mindless music videos or bouncing on your own trampoline, in the privacy of your backyard, embracing Flashdance moves, breathing in the fresh air, reaching up to the sky, listening to the soundtrack of nature! I wonder which one is best for your overall health and wellbeing? 

So while the kids are at school, ten minutes of bouncing every day and you’re on your way to becoming that fit, healthy, fun loving ‘yummy mummy’ you’ve always wanted to be - without the gym membership. And to help get you started, check out some of Lean Mumma's trampoline moves and a list of fitness apps to keep you motivated. 

5. SLAM DUNK LIKE A PRO

Inside of us all, there’s a Michael Jordan just waiting to be released! And accessorising your trampoline with a basketball hoop like Springfree’s FlexrHoop could be the start of your slam dunking stardom. Not to mention, it adds a whole new element to the fun and fitness you can have on your trampoline.

Make this Christmas the best ever with a trampoline!

But remember, when choosing a trampoline always put safety first by ensuring you purchase a quality trampoline that meets the Australian Safety Standards. Be sure to shop around and ask questions. Check out what makes Springfree Trampoline the world’s safest. And always take into consideration the shape and size of your backyard to ensure you get the best trampoline for your needs.
