Another activity where the fun masks new skills and excellent health benefits! Trampolining is exercise in disguise and is perfect for students who don’t like taking part in structured sports lessons or regular sporting activities.
When students jump on a trampoline their brain is forced to function bilaterally as they jump up and down in the air. Both sides of their brain and both sides of their body must work together to maintain coordination and balance. This in turn helps increase their motor skills.
Students gain a new sense of freedom and thrill of soaring into the air. Students gain a sense of achievement and self-confidence, especially if they have tried other, more difficult sports and had not been successful.
Jumping on a trampoline:
- is a great low impact exercise improving core strength
- strengthens and lengthens muscles and improves flexibility
- increases a student’s heart rate and giving a workout.
