Why Trampolining is Connected to Happiness

If you’ve visited Rush before and spent an hour jumping from trampoline to trampoline, then you’ll know how great it makes you feel. Trampolining is one of the most accessible and easy types of physical activity you can do, as it’s suitable for all ages. There are loads of physical and mental benefits of trampolining, which you can take advantage of whether you’re a pro who can do all of the tricks and flips, or a beginner just gently rebounding.

We think that trampolining is one of the best ways to boost your mood and get fit at the same time – and lots of health experts and celebrities agree. Trampoline parks have been heralded as the answer to helping families get fit and active, because it’s a fun activity which can be done together. It’s time to bounce your way to happiness – here are some reasons why trampolining makes you happy!

Boost endorphins

The first and foremost reason why trampolining makes us feel good is because of the natural reaction in our brains. All cardiovascular exercise releases endorphins in the brain, which make us feel happy and confident, and reduce stress and anxiety. The difference is, once the endorphins are released it’s easy to give up on the activity when it becomes too strenuous. Bouncing up and down on a trampoline in enjoyable for a long period of time, so you can carry on burning calories and releasing feel-good chemicals for a whole hour.

Low impact exercise

Trampolining at an indoor trampoline park offers a low impact activity, unlike other exercises such as running, cycling and contact sports. Rebound exercises reduce the amount of stress on the joints, meaning you can carry on exercising for longer. As a low impact exercise, trampolining is suitable for all ages and abilities, people who are recovering from an injury or people who aren’t used to intensive workouts. That means it can be enjoyed by the whole family, and bouncing with all your loved ones can make the experience even more joyful.

Variety of rebound activities

Variety is the spice of life – which is why you don’t have to do the same thing every time you visit a trampoline park. Feel free to take part in open jump sessions and bounce around, trying out new moves, but why not try your hand at something different? At Rush you can use the trampolines to play basketball and extreme dodgeball, which is another fun element to explore. That’s not to mention the foam pit, battle beam and adrenaline assault course! Here at Rush we also have a wide range of fitness classes for you to try, on and off the trampolines.

Exercise is proven to increase happiness, and trampolining is one of the most enjoyable ways to exercise!
