Getting a backyard trampoline for your kids is a great way to help keep them healthy and fit in a fun way that doesn’t seem like “hard” exercise.

Health Benefits of Backyard Trampolines

1) Improved cardiovascular health: Studies on adults show a modest but significant improvement in cardiovascular fitness with regular, 30-minute trampoline workouts.

2) Increased leg strength: Studies on college students who did 30 minutes of trampoline bouncing twice a week showed increases in both leg power and leg strength.

3) Perceived as easier than traditional aerobic activities: While bouncing increases the heart rate, many people do not experience an equal increase in perceived exertion. This means that it’s good cardio—but it doesn’t seem as hard as traditional aerobic exercises. This improves the odds that your kids will be happy to do it over and over again!

So if you’re looking for a way to help kids get fit in a way that’s fun for them, consider a trampoline and help them bounce their way to better health!
