Technology has brought a whole new world to our children, and some of them live a life we can barely recognise as the life of a child. The thing is, some of the recreational activities we loved as children hold the same allure for people growing up now, and can provide more entertainment than anything else. One of the best that comes to mind is the joy of jumping on a trampoline.
Here are 5 reasons a trampoline makes a great addition to your child’s lifestyle:
1. It’s Good for Them
These days, there are not a lot of recreational activities your kids are 'just dying to do' that are also healthy for them. A trampoline keeps them jumping around, working their muscles and cardiovascular systems.
They’ll be reminding you of what kids were like when you were growing up, and you might even find it hard to get them off the trampoline! You won’t be chasing them out of the house; you’ll be chasing them back in for dinner.
2. Hours of fun at home
A trampoline is the kind of thing that will make your kids want to stay and play at home. Playdates are less of a challenge now as having friends around to jump on the trampoline is great fun and a cool little 'hangout' for them and their friends. The safety assurance of a Springfree Trampoline gives you the comfort to know you can zip a child up in the trampoline and let them play.
3. Outdoor fun is good for them
Just like a trampoline keeps kids healthy because they are being active, it also gets them out into the yard, enjoying fresh air.
4. It’s Good for You!
Let’s be honest, we all wish we were young when we see our kids doing things our bodies now find a challenge. But jumping is NOT (or should not be) one of those. You can get out on that trampoline too! NASA discovered that 10 minutes of jumping is the equivalent of 30 minute run. Now that’s efficient use of your time - and no matter what, that feeling of defying gravity is always fun! So get out onto the trampoline and have a good bounce, in the privacy of your own home. Most Springfree Trampoline models (all but the R54 Compact Round) have a recommended maximum user weight of 100kg (and can support a structural load of much more), and there are all sorts of ways to turn it into a serious exercise regime. I say just get to jumping and be creative. It brings out the child in you, and trust me, you’ll get your heart pumping faster than you think!
5. Years of fun
Trampoline fun is great for any age; investing in a good quality trampoline should give you not hours of fun, but years of fun for all your kids. From the littlies, to the teenagers, right up to Dad who can keep his body in good shape.
Choose a trampoline that works for the space you have in your yard and one that can be enjoyed by all. This is why Springfree Trampoline have a range of 6 different shapes and sizes to suite all homes and families.
Who doesn’t like to see their kids have a blast and just be kids for a minute? A kid’s trampoline is nothing but pure fun. Everything else is a side-benefit. You get all the reward you need when you hear them laughing the day away!
