A Fun Way to Combat Obesity
If the rigors of dieting and hitting the gym feel torturous to you, bring your entire family in a trampoline park. The activities are especially helpful for kids; they will not realise they are getting a workout without even noticing it.
Trampoline jumping is a cardio workout in itself that makes you burn more than 1000 calories within an hour. It strengthens your bones and increases bone density more than running, according to fitness experts. It has unique benefits compared to other forms of exercise because it involves increasing our G-force – force created in the body as a result of acceleration or gravity. It does not only boost your energy, but also increases your white blood cells, among others. Based on a research conducted by NASA, the US Space Agency, trampolining is kinder on the joints, exercises the whole body and has greater aerobic benefits than other forms of intense physical activity.
For father and sons, they may enjoy slam dunks as well as some big bags, super tramps or dodge ball or tuck shop. In fact, some of these are also for moms and daughters. It can be the perfect bonding activity for everyone.
There are a thousand and one health benefits of jumping, trampolining or rebounding. So, bring your family along and enjoy some adrenaline-pumping moments in a trampoline park.
