Can trampolining help you lose weight?

18 Replies

Hi all, just got a trampoline for my Daughter and decided I quite like jumping on it too! Could this be the exercise I actually like doing...? Was loads of fun. Hoping it aids my weight loss 😀

Hello Hidden , what you eat is far more important in weight loss than exercise, but exercise is good in itself, and anything that you enjoy and will stick with is a good option.

What could really help you is getting more involved with the forum e.g. the Daily Diary, challenges and all the conversations that go on every day :)

I am not an expert but did they years ago used to have trampolining classes to help lose weight, it was the little round ones? Anything that gets you more active is a good thing and could be the start to help inspire you to more things.

Yes they did and you can buy those mini ones called rebounders sometimes from places that sell exercise stuff :)

Trampolining for 20 minutes can earn you 82 calories! Go for it Hidden !

You’re joking aren’t you - trampolining is absolutely exhausting! It will definitely help! I suspect it will particularly help to tone your muscles, and muscle development can help burn more fat. Besides, it’s so much fun!

Does anyone know if there is a difference for calorie burn in using a kids trampoline or a rebounder?

Any exercise that gets your heart rate up will burn calories and improve health

If it's exercise you like then go for it . Depends how big the trampoline is as just bouncing on the spot may be boring . There are plenty of adult classes then you could practice on yours . If you actually learn the twists and turns then this will help with flexibility too . Food obviously is the major in weight loss but I find exercise really motivates me to feel good too .

All activity helps and trampoline exercise would be great for the core too. As is laughing 😀

Have loads of fun!!

And stay safe!

I have a rebounder- unexpectedly I found it really helped with ‘urgency’ and strengthened my pelvic floor - so no operation required.

Also, there are exercises on YouTube.

I do rebounding which is a workout on a trampoline and it is the best workout I have ever done for toning and fat burning. It's different from normal trampoline in that you try to stay low then you really feel it in your legs.

Hi, that sounds great I have seen the small trampolines too. Have just done another twenty minutes and my legs are hurting so I must be doing something right! 😀

Well obviously it's fun and definitely not damaging your own fitness goals. Enjoy the experience with your child and any fitness /weight loss results are a bonus. The 2 of you bouncing around is a bonding thing..... having fun together.... But so would be having a hot chocolate and doughnuts brunch at the weekend. Guess what is healthy? You are not just exercising, you're educating future generations about showing love without food. Carry on!

Trampoline is very beneficial for our health. By exercising on a trampoline we can burn fat, If we do daily exercise like jumps, running and healthy diet then it's easy to loss weight.
