    I’ve always loved trampolining because it’s LOTS of fun and obviously keeps us fit at the same time. In fact, we had one in a yard which I used every day, and there’s now a trampoline place in our town where kids and adults can both have fun parties there. 🙂

    I can certainly see that there are some health and fitness benefits to be gained from exercising on a trampoline. I also appreciate your guidance too for doing it properly. I’m now really tempted to get a small trampoline for indoor use.

    Great post. Looks like they’re having fun in the picture. I’ve been on a large trampoline a few times. We actually have one in the back yard. It’s a fun way to get some exercise. I know it didn’t take long for me to work up a sweat and make my legs feel like wet noodles. I didn’t know about the other benefits you mentioned. That’s some great information. I’d put a small in front of the TV but my ceiling might be too low. Anyway, thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed it.
