Bounce! Trampoline Sports is introducing Monday Madness! Every Monday the first hour is only $10.00 and $5 for the second hour.
NASA completed a study that showed that jumping on a trampoline "...is the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man."Upon completing their study NASA found that jumping on a trampoline was much more beneficial to the men in the study than running on the treadmill. The resulting document states, "The external work output at equivalent levels of oxygen uptake were significantly greater while trampolining than running. The greatest difference was about 68%."

The scientists also noted that "... for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the bio mechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running.
Trampolines also greatly benefited the astronauts upon their return to earth. A loss of gravity poses multiple threats to the human body and can lead to a plethora of bodily changes, including a loss of bone mass. Exercising on trampolines, conversely, strengthens the body and increases bone mass. As more supporting research poured in, scientists were beginning to realize the full benefits that trampolines could provide.
Jordan S. Rubin and Bernard Bulwer, weight loss experts, realize the connection of trampoline use and increased bone mass. They stated the following in their book, Perfect Weight America: "Jumping on a trampoline is one of the best and most complete anaerobic exercises you can do, since jumping strengthens muscles, tendons, and ligaments-and demands great energy. The acceleration, deceleration, and gravity pull positively stress your bones, which results in higher bone density (167). Higher bone density has been linked to stronger bones and a decreased incidence of fractures-a looming threat for returning astronauts. Furthermore, Bruce Fife states that weight-bearing exercise, like rebounding on a trampoline, helps protect against osteoporosis later in life (131). He goes on to state the following:
"Rebound exercise is "the most efficient and most effective form of exercise yet devised by man...(because) it does not just strengthen the muscles, but it strengthens every single cell of the body, both muscle and nonmuscle. It strengthens the bones, cartilage, joints, and every organ of the body. The liver, pancreas, kidneys, brain, etc are all subjected to the increased gravitational force of rebounding and will respond by growing stronger. In so doing, they build up increased resistance to disease. As a result, all of the systems and organs of the body function more efficiently"(131).
