Jogging VS Bouncing

It’s a bit of an understatement to say that many people don’t enjoy running or jogging. In fact, for many it’s an absolute pain, both mentally and physically! So let’s compare: Jogging VS Bouncing

Too often we see poor runners struggling to negotiate traffic, road works and limb pain to get healthy. But at Jump Around it is possible to enjoy the same benefits, plus loads more, by putting those feet together.

A drawback of jogging is the stress it places on lower limbs and feet. “G” force can actually quadruple a runner’s weight. Here’s an example: a 150 pound person can place as much as 600 pounds of stressful downward pressure on weight-bearing joints each time a foot hits the ground. That’s painful to read, so just imagine what it feels like in truth!

Using a trampoline in Jump Around’s arena takes up to 80% of the stress off your weight-bearing joints. Using a trampoline is also a delightful option for seniors, the physically-challenged, or people recovering from accidents and injuries. It’s also a brilliant exercise for those who have been inactive and are just setting out on their fitness journey. What’s more, jumping helps reinforce your bones to make them stronger and more resilient!

The National Osteoporosis Foundation states:  “Exercise can be helpful in building and maintaining strong bones. Exercise that forces you to work against gravity – so called weight bearing exercises such as walking or jogging [and rebounding] are beneficial …If you are at risk for osteoporosis, your doctor will most likely include exercise as part of your overall treatment program.”

For these benefits, and many, many more (not to mention insane amounts of fun) book your ticket to the Jump Around arena NOW! http://jumparound.co.za/ticket-admission-sales/
