Exercise disguised as fun

Exercise disguised as fun

There are very few things that can give you great workout without feeling like you’re doing exercise. With 22 Jump Street having just opened at the Ballito Junction Regional Mall, we found out just why we should be getting our jump on!

1. Trampoline-ing is a great cardiovascular and muscular workout. Jumping on a trampoline increases the heart rate and is also a great workout for your muscles – from your feet right up to your stomach muscles.

2. Weight loss. The combination of cardiovascular workout and strengthening muscles contributes to weight loss.

3. Improved flexibility. Jumping on a trampoline strengthens and lengthens muscles, improving flexibility.

4. Increased bone density and improved joint, tendon and ligament function.

5. Balance and coordination. Balancing on a trampoline is unlike balancing on anything else. The trampoline floor is constantly moving and jumpers must be aware of their centre at all times. The balance learned on a trampoline helps improve balance in other activities.

6. Improved posture. Along with improved balance, jumping on a trampoline can improve your posture.

7. Development of motor skills. The brain is forced to function bilaterally when a jumper is in the air. Both sides of the brain and both sides of the body must work together to maintain coordination and balance when on a trampoline. This increases motor skills.
