Trampoline Workouts Are Easier on the Joints

Using a trampoline can help take pressure off your knees. "Oh my god this feels amazing," Eva said in one of her Instagram videos about the trampoline. "It actually feels better on my knees."

Trampoline Workouts Are More Efficient Than Jogging

Adding a spring to your step can help you get into shape faster. A NASA study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology claims that rebounding exercise is 68 percent more efficient than jogging. As far as calories burned, a study by the American Council on Exercise found that mini trampoline workouts effectively burn an average of 12.4 calories per minute for men and 9.4 calories per minute for women. According to a 2016 in the Journal of Sport and Health Science trampoline jumping also helps with bone density and strength.
