Here at Leaps & Rebounds, we want you to get in better shape and improve your overall health while having fun at the same time. However, what we don’t want is for you to get injured in your fitness quest. Rebounding on our trampolines is a load of fun, but there are also some safety considerations to keep in mind as you bounce your way to a happier, healthier life. We’re happy that you’ve made the choice to exercise without the harsh impact associated with running or other cardio-based sports, but we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t cover some safety pointers as they relate to our rebounder exercise trampoline.
Safely Rebounding Your Way To Better Health
So, in today’s blog post, Leaps & Rebounds is going to cover some common sense safety tips to ensure that you have an optimal experience with our fitness rebounder trampolines. Do you have any specific questions for us? If so, we’d love to hear from you! Reach out to us today.
General Safety Measures
Before getting started with your very own rebounder (congratulations!), be sure to carefully read all of the included literature and instructions, as these are designed for your safety. You’ll want to make sure that its properly assembled before mounting it, and you’ll also want to make sure that you’re bouncing on a flat, clear and secure surface, such as an open gym floor. There should also be adequate ventilation in the room that you’re using our rebounder.
Overhead and Lateral Clearance
Jumping and rebounding is great, but not so great if you’re smashing your head on the ceiling. Before getting started, make sure that you have plenty of room to bounce above your head and to your sides. Check for nearby objects like ceiling lights, fans, wires, tree limbs, and so forth. There should be plenty of clear space around the exercise trampoline, and if there are others around you, make sure that they are standing at a distance.
Your new rebounder shouldn’t have any issues, but as a general precautionary measure, you should inspect the rebounder before each use. If applicable, replace any worn, defective or missing parts, and make sure that the legs are secured tightly. If anything seems out of place, address the problem before getting started. Not only will you prevent injury by doing this, but you’ll also get optimal rebounding performance from our products.
Shoes and Socks
Slippery socks are a “no-no” when using our rebounder, for obvious reasons. So, pay attention to your socks or shoes while you’re training. Prior to exercising, be sure that your socks, shoes or feet do not slide on the trampoline surface. Usually, standard cotton socks don’t slide around too much. If you’re training outdoors, make sure that the surface is not wet.
