Generally speaking, working out has never really been a fun activity. Yes, it helps you get in shape, shed those extra kilos, and lead a healthier lifestyle but for many of us, the pains outweigh the gains.
Due to this, there have been numerous attempts at customising workouts to make them more engaging and fun. Take for example Zumba, a form of workout that combines cardio with some Latin-inspired music, or maybe Spin classes where you get to be part of a crowd and hit those fitness goals together.
The latest addition to this effort (and perhaps the most effective one to have come out in recent times) involves jumping on a trampoline. Yes, it may sound kiddish at first, but wait till you hear about what you can find in a trampoline fitness class.
TRAMPOLINE WORKOUTS: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
Also known as rebound exercises, trampoline workouts are a low-impact form of exercise that involves jumping, dancing, or just simply moving on a trampoline. Though it may seem like such a workout will only engage your legs, it is actually a full-body workout.
Experts have pointed out that in a trampoline class, you can burn anywhere between 8 to 15 calories per minute based on effort level. This is at par with activities such as running, racquetball, and skiing which usually burn 12 to 16 calories per minute. Hence, a trampoline workout can also be used as HIIT plus cardio endurance.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A TRAMPOLINE CLASS
Though trampoline classes can differ from one fitness studio to the other, there are some general elements that you can find everywhere. You can expect a really good warm up so that you avoid injury.

HOW DOES IT HELP CHANGE YOUR BODY
A trampoline workout exercises each muscle group in your body, especially the core since you have to balance, stabilize, and turn your body a lot during the workout. The movements involved in a trampoline workout will also help to add mobility to your joints and lengthen your shoulder, hip, and leg muscles.
Besides this, it helps to boost the immune system by draining the lymphatic glands. By using your core to stabilise yourself during the workout, you also protect your joints, especially the knees and the lower back.
HOW TO INCORPORATE IT INTO YOUR ROUTINE
Trampoline workouts are amazing for your body, but they can be equally harmful if not done properly. So if you plan to start practicing a trampoline workout, you need proper guidance regarding the various movements and nuances of it.
