What is Trampoline Fitness?
There is plenty of workout equipment to choose from and many of them are gimmicky. They promise amazing results without the ability to deliver. There’s even a product that you wrap around your waist and it vibrates which is supposed to give you a six pack as you watch television.

Skywalker is one of the big players in the trampoline market and a brand that you will come across fairly quickly as soon as you start to look at the different options out there. Even though it is actually quite a recent company (2004), I like Skywalker because they believe in basically the same things as me-that is, trampolines should be safe and fun. After all, if you have got these two things right, what else is there?
This manufacturer produces a lot quality options and you can be confident that you aren’t getting something that will fall part in no time. Now you do have a lot of choice here. If you decide to choose one of the Skywalker models, you are looking at tens of different models, from mini trampolines for toddlers, through indoor exercise versions all the way to 16ft square heavy duty outdoor models.
Don’t panic, help is at hand! I have selected a few of what I consider to be the best options from the range and looked at the good (and sometimes bad) points for each. There is something here for everyone and hopefully this will make your choice a lot easier.
So your kids (and you too, probably) have spent some happy months bouncing away on your trampoline. You may have discovered the joys of getting in shape on there as well as a load of new ideas to keep kids entertained. But the days are getting a little shorter and colder. Sitting inside seems like a better idea than playing outside. So it is time to put your trampoline away for the winter. what do you need to know?
Actually, you might be wondering why you should bother at all. I mean, why not just leave it there in the garden and then deal with stuff in the Spring? This might seem tempting but you really shouldn’t. The number of people who do this and then either have to buy another one come springtime of spend a fortune getting it back into usable shape is huge. Why not just do things right now and then you can start again quickly (and cost free) when the sun comes out again next year?
If you are thinking about losing a few pounds or are even a hard-core fitness enthusiast, trampolines are great. However, you might not have either the funds or the space to invest in a larger, outdoor model. So what do you do, Take up (urgh!) jogging? Fear not, what about having a look at a mini trampoline?
The first thing that comes to mind for many people when they think ‘mini’ is one of the toy trampolines that you might buy for a toddler. Whilst these can be great, they clearly aren’t meant for adults and even less for an adult who is intending to use it to work out! Smaller exercise trampolines are what you should be looking at. These are made for indoor use and specifically for fitness. If you pick the right model, you should have absolutely no problems working hard and getting some great results.
So just what can you do with this get in shape? Pretty much anything you want! A couple of things to bear in mind before getting started. The aim here isn’t to bounce as high as possible. If you set this up in your living room (as many people do), think about low ceilings, ceiling fans or furniture that may be nearby. Give yourself plenty of space (at least 6 feet all round.) Your aim is to work hard for an extended period of time, not to smash through the floor or ceiling!
Trampolines have become much safer in recent years. Pads covering springs and frames are standard equipment. Springless trampolines are increasingly common and are much safer alternatives. The use of enclosures is widespread, eliminating many of the falls to the ground that resulted in some of the most serious injuries. With a few simple practices, trampolines can be a safe source of enjoyment and exercise for children, teens, and adults.
