Benefits Found Nowhere Else In Sports!
Tumbling/Trampoline is FUN and enhances childrens fitness faster than perhaps any other activity and the benefits go beyond that: There is no better activity than tumbling/trampoline to train spatial awareness, a critical skill in all sports.
Additionally, spatial awareness is considered one of the eight intelligences and has been linked to enhanced cognitive development. The inherent FUN of tumbling/trampoline disguises the amount of energy being expended! Unlike so many childrens activities, when tumbling and on trampoline, children eagerly sustain an activity level that leads to genuine fitness including: cardiovascular health, leg and core strength, calorie burning and weight loss. At the bottom of every bounce on the trampoline, gravity is 2 to 5 times body weight.
This compresses every cell in the body helping the lymph and other circulatory systems eliminate toxins from the body. Tumbling/trampoline also helps: the vestibular system, optical tracking and peripheral vision, fear management, concentration and attention to detail, and so much more.
