Bouncing on a trampoline is one of life’s singular pleasures, not just for kids but for adults as well. But, as is too often the case, families buy their trampolines hastily, forgetting to research all-important aspects of trampolining like safety and seasonal care, and then letting the trampoline languish unused in their backyard.
If you are going to buy a trampoline, do it right. Get the most out of your trampoline by researching its safety, ensuring that it lasts throughout the winter, using it for more than recreational bouncing, and adding some fun accessories to it.
Don’t buy an unsafe trampoline, only to sell it once someone gets hurt. Instead, start your search by choosing a safe trampoline, like one from Springfree Trampoline (the safest trampolines on the market). Springfree trampolines have a flexible safety enclosure net that ensures jumpers don’t fall to the ground. They have flexible composite rods, tucked underneath the trampoline’s surface, instead of exposed springs. And they have a soft mat edge, so jumpers don’t hit a hard surface.
All Season Fun
A trampoline is an investment, and the more often you use it, the better value it becomes. To that end, you want a trampoline that can withstand the winter and summer. Again, Springfree comes out on top of the pack here: the net on a Springfree trampoline is UV stabilized, the frame is rust protected, and the net and mat rods are made with a composite material three times stronger than steel, so you can go for a million jumps on it without wearing it down.
Skip The Gym
Once you have selected a trampoline, you want to use it to its fullest. That means that, in addition to using it recreationally as a family, you can treat it as your own personal gym. There are numerous wonderful, low impact exercises that you can do on your new trampoline, whether your goal is fat burning, muscle toning or aerobics. Set aside 15 to 30 minutes a day for a trampoline workout, and before you know it you will start looking and feeling healthier.
Add Some Accessories
As fun as a trampoline is – and it is a lot of fun – you can always add to the party by accessorizing. Add a basketball hoop for those family members who want to practice their jump shot, or a tgoma, a tablet-based gaming system that uses sensors to create an interactive jumping experience. Think of your new trampoline as a blank canvas, upon which you can pile even more fun stuff.
From researching the right trampoline, all the way through to giving it some bells and whistles, this is how to make the most out of your backyard trampoline. Don’t let your trampoline become another rusty relic cluttering up your backyard – buy a safe, all-season trampoline that you can use for fun and exercise. With Christmas right around the corner, now’s the perfect time to treat your family to a trampoline.
