It seems so much easier to exercise as a kid. Running around the yard, breaking into dance, and spending the afternoon on the trampoline are all second nature for youngsters. But as we get older, for some reason exercise turns into more of a chore than a treat. Put the fun back in fitness no matter what your age by visiting a Harvey-area trampoline park.
What’s All the Jump About?
Anything that gets you moving is going to be good for your body. If your idea of “moving” is the quick hustle it takes to get back from the kitchen before your commercial break is over, you may be one of the many people who don’t actually enjoy exercising. After all, exercise in itself can be a bit boring. The best way to stay fit and not hate it is by enjoying the burn. Trampoline parks can help you do that in a few ways:
- Be the cool friend. It’s a lot easier to lose track of time, and a lot harder to sneak off to the sidelines, if you’re exercising in a group. Next time you want to catch up with friends, don’t let it be an excuse to miss out on gym time. Instead, propose a visit to the trampoline park. You can chat, laugh, even push each other into the foam pits. If you’ve got kids, it’s the perfect place to bring them along. Doing new and exciting activities together promotes bonding and strengthens relationships in couples. You’ll be surprised how time flies when you’re all having fun.
- Get a full body workout. If you’re pressed for time, you especially are going to want to get as much out of your gym time as possible. That’s why the full body workout achieved with trampoline parks should top your list of exercise options. Not only are you using your whole body to propel yourself off the trampoline, but you’re practicing explosive movements that are more difficult to train on a hard surface.
- Slim down & strengthen your heart. Did you realize that trampoline play is a form of cardio? With all the energy it takes to defy gravity for a few seconds, you can work up quite a sweat. Cardiovascular exercise is one of the best things you can do to improve your mood, energy, appearance, and overall well-being. If you keep it up, you could leave the park sans stress and a few pounds lighter.
