Trampolining

Trampolining is a competitive Olympic sport in which gymnasts perform acrobatics while bouncing on a trampoline.

An Overview of Trampolining

These can include simple jumps in the pike, tuck or straddle position to more complex combinations of forward or backward somersaults and twists.

You can burn at least 120 calories in just 30 minutes!

  • It's low impact on your joints (proven by NASA's study!)
