ACE Study Proves Exercise Trampoline Benefits
Feb 27th 2017
Trade in your treadmill for an exercise trampoline workout!
What is better for your body, running or jumping? The American Council of Exercise (ACE) recently published a study on exercise trampoline benefits that scientifically proves jumping is the best! Okay- it may not state jumping is better exactly but the scientific data concludes jumping is a more efficient way to exercise compared with running. Twenty-four college-aged subjects participating in the study helped prove this point. They were monitored by a team of researchers in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science from the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse while using JumpSport Fitness Trampolines, watching our 19-minute JumpSport workout video.
The study was designed to learn if an exercise trampoline workout meets the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) guidelines for improving cardiorespiratory endurance and caloric burn.
Findings conclude rebounding is the most efficient way to workout.
Participants were able to raise their heart rate and energy expenditure quickly without tiring like they would with a more jarring exercise like running. Calories burned per minute were also surprisingly higher than with other types of heart pumping exercises. Burning more calories in less time - we'll take it!
There are several exercise trampoline benefits in addition to the cardiovascular and caloric burn measured in this study; many of which we find most customers aren't aware of. Here's a small quiz to see if you're ready for a trampoline. Do you want to:
- Stay balanced?- rebounding increases spatial awareness
- Think clearer?-rebounding improves cognitive awareness
- Digest better?- rebounding enhances digestion and elimination
- Heal faster?- rebounding promotes tissue repair
- Breathe better?- rebounding increases capacity for breathing and respiration
- Boost energy?- rebounding reduces feelings of anxiety and depression by an increase in endorphins.
- Slow Aging?- Yes, rebounding even slows the aging process by slowing down muscle weakness that comes with age!
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then it's time to 'hop' to it and find your dream trampoline!
JumpSport offers models starting at $199 up to our top-of-the-line PRO model at $619 - which still comes in at a lower price than buying a lower-end treadmill starting in the $1000 range. Also, some advice from the experts- don’t be fooled by the $40 mini-trampolines you can find at big box stores. Customers consistently report on the low quality and lifespan of the product. Another advantage of the JumpSport design is the quiet elastic bands. Compared to squeaky springs, this is especially helpful in an apartment, shared space with light sleepers, or a group fitness class setting. Our fitness trampolines are virtually silent and offer a smooth transition between bounces.
We are also happy to share participants reported that the exercise was fun and they felt energized after completing the JumpSport workout. Exercise mini trampoline benefits can be obtained on any rebounder but the added physical benefits of using elastic bands over springs encourages you to keep exercising and enjoy your workout even more!
