Fitness Trampoline Maintenance and Care Tips

Fitness Trampoline Maintenance and Care Tips

Jun 19th 2020

Elastic Bungee Cord Maintenance

If your gym is hosting regular trampoline classes, the elastic bungee cords are seeing a lot of mileage from multiple users. One of the draws of the fitness trampoline is the smooth, quiet, and supportive bounce but if the cords aren’t being taken care of, your clients aren’t getting the best experience and you could be putting strain on the mat.

Recommendation:

  • Check your cords at least every 3-6 months
  • Know when to adjust your cords. At 30-minute continuous bounce workouts, you will need to adjust the firmness of your cords after about 125 classes. Watch the How To Adjust Your Cords Video »
  • Replace your cords every 2 years in a commercial setting
  • If you’re stacking rebounders, make sure units at the top of the stack are rotated to the bottom

Replace When

  • Thick-thin appearance in the cord, indicating it is overly stretched
  • Uneven distances/length of cords around the diameter of the trampoline
  • Longer cords in one area (typical for trampolines where the handle is installed)
    • PRO Tip: rotate the position of the handle bar every few weeks so bouncers aren’t hitting one area harder than others on the trampoline

Frame & Legs

Our arched-leg rebounders were engineered to be light enough for stacking or transporting and strong enough for high weight ratings and intense exercises by multiple users in a club environment. Stacking the rebounders is a great way to save valuable space but keep the rebounders close to transition between group exercises.

Recommendation:

  • Keep the included allen wrench handy and tighten the legs every few month
  • Install Leg Bumpers to keep from scratching up the frames when stacked

Replace When

  • Wobbly or loosened legs and/or handle bar legs
  • Scratches around the edge of the frame, likely 6 areas of the frame indicating the six legs from the rebounder on top are contacting the bottom frame

Buy Leg Bumpers

Mat Care

Fitness trampoline jumping mats typically outlast the lifespan of the elastic cords. It’s important to remember, however, each bouncer/client is interacting with the mats differently. Keeping the mats clean and checking them regularly will keep them going for many years to come.

Recommendation:

  • Check your mat at least every 3-6 months; at the same time you check your cord
  • Wipe mats regularly with non-caustic cleaning wipes or warm water (mild soap) and paper towel or cleaning cloth

Replace When

  • Visible signs of pulling or stretching of the permatron mat fabric near the nylon edge; where the mat ends and the skirt begins
  • Fraying mat fabric or stitching
  • To purchase a replacement mat, call or email us

Silicone Feet

The silicone “rubber” feet on the bottom of the legs of JumpSport Fitness trampolines will save the gym floor from scuffing and help the rebounder grip the floor during use. If the feet are worn unevenly or get a hole in them, it may cause the rebounder to not sit flat and can cause uneven wear and tear on the elastic bungee cords.

Recommendation:

  • Check silicone feet every few months and keep a couple back-ups on hand
  • Remove the silicone feet and check the hard plastic plug. If you see cracks, then call or email us to get replacement plastic plugs and silicone feet.
  • Invest in a Rolling Storage Cart for easy transport of stacked rebounders without dragging them across the floor

Replace When

  • Uneven silicon feet or worn spots/holes in the silicon leg caps
  • Hard plastic plug in the foot has visible cracks
