Bouncing your way to good health.

TRAMPOLINING has huge fitness benefits, so it's no wonder so many of us are bouncing back to health and getting fit at the same time!

It's a fact, trampolining is far better for you than running; a 10-minute indoor bounce can be as effective as a 30-minute run. And with more and more trampoline parks, like Limitless in Swansea/Cwmbran, offering fitness classes for adults as well as children, bouncing is fast becoming the new jogging.

What's more, it's exciting and fun... and when you look at the faces of everyone bouncing, you'd never think they were actually exercising.

Too often we see people running along the streets or through the parks with strained, pained faces, soaking wet and struggling to negotiate traffic.

More importantly, jogging can put excessive physical stress on your legs, knees and feet.

You can enjoy the same fitness benefits by keeping those feet together and just bouncing as the springs in a trampoline take away all the impact of the road.

Using a trampoline takes up to 80% off the stress of your weightbearing joints and so is perfect for children whose bones and muscles are growing and developing.

Plus, it's a great way to distract them from their i-Pads and to get them jumping, without feeling the pressure of team sports or other activities.

Leigh Pugh, from Limitless Trampoline Park, said: "Trampolining is perfect for people who want to keep fit but who have struggled with joint problems.

"Bouncing is easy. You need no skills or training. Just come along and have fun.

"There's no time commitment either; you can bounce for five minutes or five hours! It's simply an affordable way to exercise for people of all ages."
