Daily exercise is an important part of staying healthy. It keeps our heart, brain, and lungs functioning properly, keeps our muscles strong, and improves flexibility — which also helps to prevent injury. Unfortunately, as we age, it can become more difficult to get the exercise we need. Aches and pains start to set in, we’re not as nimble as we used to be, and we have to take special care to avoid injury. In today’s post from Leaps and Rebounds, we want to talk about some of the benefits that seniors can get from using a fitness trampoline as part of their regular exercise routine. Keep reading, and if you’d like to purchase one and have it shipped directly to your home, shop Leaps and Rebounds today.
Exercises that are low-impact are easy on joints and less hard on the body. That means they’re perfect for people who are older or recovering from injury. Using a fitness trampoline is one example of a low-impact workout that is easy to do, but can still provide many heart-pumping benefits. Some of those benefits include reducing your risk of certain diseases, slowing down age degeneration, and improving your mood, flexibility, and cardiovascular health. All of these benefits can be realized without it taking a toll on your body as some other strenuous exercises can.
People tend to stick with an exercise routine more consistently if it’s convenient for them. Fortunately, with a fitness trampoline, you can do your workout just about anywhere. The mini trampoline is small and lightweight enough to be able to carry it from room to room with ease — try doing that with a treadmill! The legs are even removable so you can store it easily or place it in your car for easy transportation. For some people, going to a gym or even going for a walk outside their home isn’t a safe option. Now they can get the exercise they need (and have fun doing it!) with the help of a little trampoline.
As people age, their balance may not quite be what it used to, and therefore jumping on a fitness trampoline might seem like an accident waiting to happen. However, at Leaps and Rebounds, we provide some optional accessories to ensure that your workouts are always safe and incident-free. For instance, you can purchase an adjustable stability bar that fits securely on your fitness trampoline. It has easy-to-grip cushioned handles that give you the support you need to help keep your balance.
We also offer no-slip socks with rubber grips on the bottom to keep your feet planted firmly on the trampoline. They’re comfortable and warm, and can even be worn around the house. No more slipping on wood or tile floors! These socks, combined with the adjustable stability bar, ensure you’ll have a safe and enjoyable time on your fitness trampoline.
Improves Cardiovascular Health
Heart disease is the number one cause of death among both men and women in the U.S. Luckily, there’s something you can do to improve your cardiovascular health and live a long, healthy life. Research shows that exercising several times per week can help to reduce your chances of heart disease, and fortunately, you don’t have to lift heavy weights or run marathons to get the benefits. One way to improve cardiovascular health is by doing low-impact jumping on your fitness trampoline. Just 15 minutes a day will get your blood pumping and strengthen your heart and lungs.
Fun To Do
Who says seniors don’t like to have fun? You can only walk the dog so many times a day and even that can lose its appeal. Why not try something different? A fitness trampoline may be just the answer you’re looking for. We dare you to try jumping on it without smiling — we bet you can’t! There’s just something inherently fun about jumping up and down and now you can do it safely, every day. Getting on your mini trampoline won’t feel like exercising, it will actually be something that you look forward to.
Improves Stamina, Flexibility, and Muscle strength
As people become less active, several things start to happen — they start to lose muscle strength, they become less flexible, and they may not be able to do the things they once could. This can lead to a downward spiral that also affects self-confidence and mood. A healthy body isn’t just about staying fit or maintaining a desirable weight, it’s about staying mentally well. And, there’s no better way to keep your mind and body strong than to commit to a regular exercise routine — and a fitness trampoline can help you do just that!
