Spring is officially here, and while the weather is still figuring that out, now is the time to start thinking about all of the fun things you can do with the longer days and warmer temperatures. Here at Play N’ Learn’s Playground Superstores, we can’t wait to get back outdoors on our trampolines. Don’t have a trampoline? Read on for why a trampoline makes a great addition to your backyard.
1. Trampolines offer endless fun
Who doesn’t love bouncing up and down? The fact of the matter is that jumping on a trampoline is just plain fun. Kids love it, adults love it, and that’s never going to change.
Whether you’re alone or with friends, trampolines offer endless fun and entertainment. You can play classic games like dodge ball or tag — or challenge your friends to few rounds of “Crack the Egg,” where one person (the egg) curls up in a ball in the middle, and everyone else bounces around trying to crack it.
Have your kids get creative by inventing new games — with a big open space for bouncing, they’ll rise to the challenge, for sure.
2. Trampolines keep us healthy and fit
Even better than the fun is that jumping on a trampoline is good for you — and can improve your cardiovascular strength, coordination, and bone and muscle strength. In fact, trampolines provide such great aerobic exercise that astronauts and athletes use them for training purposes. And in 1999, trampolining even became an official sport of the summer Olympics!
On top of that, jumping on a trampoline is low impact — and in just 10 to 20 minutes, you can burn the same amount of calories you burn from 30 minutes of jogging, without the wear and tear on your joints.
3. Trampolines fit almost any size of yard
Trampolines come in many shapes and sizes, from smaller eight-feet circles to larger rectangles or jumbo squares. So you can get one that fits the area you have available — all you really need is some level ground.
With the many size options come a number of design choices. Our AlleyOOP trampolines, for instance, come with a basketball hoop, while our revolutionary Springfree trampolines hide the frame beneath the jumping surface.
4. Trampolines come with safety features
All Play N’ Learn trampolines come with built-in safety features, including a net to reduce the risk of falling. Our AlleyOOP trampoline uses bounce technology to make it safer for multiple jumpers to jump without knocking each other off balance. And our Springfree trampolines are designed to prevent jumpers from landing on any potentially hard surfaces. Each design aims to minimize the risk associated with jumping so you can focus on the fun.
But the fun doesn’t end with jumping. With add-ons like basketball hoops and tents for trampoline sleepovers, you’ll never run out of things to do on your trampoline. It’s a simple concept that will never get old.
If you don’t have a trampoline waiting for you in your backyard, why not? Get in touch, and we can help you find the right fit.
