My JumpSport Fitness Trampoline Makes It Easy

I’ve been doing a variety of workouts over the last few months, and I’m finally feeling some positive momentum. I’ve talked about exercise lately, but I I haven’t mentioned how much I love my new JumpSport Fitness Trampoline.

I’ve had it since late April, but I didn’t really start using it until about a month ago. I didn’t make a lot of time for exercise of any kind when Mom was in the hospital, but I’ve had some fun jumping on it since then.

I’ve wanted a JumpSport trampoline for about 5 years since I first discovered them at Fitbloggin, but I have always been so nervous on them that it never seemed like a good idea. Last year, in Denver, I jumped my heart out for a few minutes and realized that my heart rate was elevated – just from bouncing on the trampoline! I figured I could benefit from owning a trampoline because I didn’t have to leave home to get my heart rate going, so when JumpSport offered to send me a fitness trampoline, I was pretty excited to try it.

I don’t have a lot of space in my apartment. I only have one bedroom, so when I’m not using it I leave it behind the door. It’s completely out of the way, and it takes about 5 seconds to move it into place.

My fear of breaking it (even though it’s built to support my weight) made it difficult to enjoy first, but I’ve been using it enough now to trust that it’s not going anywhere. I typically jump pretty close to the wall just in case I lost my balance, which hasn’t actually happened. It comes with a handle bar as well, but I don’t have enough room to use it because I couldn’t stand it up if it were attached. Seriously, when I have a bigger home I’ll definitely attach the bar.

I knew when I received it that it would help me burn calories, but I didn’t realize that I’d feel lighter as soon as I started jumping. It’s hard to explain, but after about one minute I feel as though I’m floating. The trepidation I feel initially is replaced by a liberating feeling. It almost feels like I’m flying, and that makes me feel as light as a feather. It came with an exercise DVD as well, but I haven’t used it yet. So far, I’ve only been brave enough to jump and do a few planks. Those are killer!

I’m looking forward to watching my nieces jump on it when they visit next week, and I’m curious to see how I’ll feel about it a few months and several pounds down from now.

Overall, I love it because it takes very little effort to get my heart rate going, and I can do it for a few minutes at a time several times a day. I think I’ll love it even more as I continue to reduce my weight because I don’t like being at the top of the weight limit. While I haven’t experienced any problems with it, I think I’ll feel more secure 25 pounds from now. The only down side is that I wish I had a bigger living space. My apartment is cozy and comfortable, but when I have an extra room the trampoline will be more prominently displayed for even easier access.

Have you ever tried a fitness trampoline? Do you own a JumpSport trampoline? Would you like a chance to win one here on my little blog?

    How cool is that! In my mind, trampolines are for two things: Children and very fit people. Since I am neither, yet, I haven’t really even considered what a trampoline could do for me. Now you’ve got me thinking. I have never seen myself on one, but now I’m excited to think of the possibilities. Awesome post Kenlie!

      I like the fact that it doesn’t sag much when I get on it. I felt a lot more relaxed once I realized that it’s not going anywhere..lol

    My mom bought one a few months ago!! She was so excited about it but then said “you know, when I’m tired of it, I’ll give it to you”. I was like “ho-hum” because we had one when I was a child – and I only associated jogging in place on the mini-trampoline. It never occurred to me to merely jump! Now I’m going to casually mention it to my mom to see if she’s ready to pass hers along. 🙂

    QUESTION: Is your apartment on the first floor? I’m in an upstairs condo with vaulted ceilings but my downstairs neighbors have regular height ceilings (i.e. way shorter than my ceilings). I don’t know if they’ll hear it if I jump on a trampoline. Guess I can only find out by trying it!

      That’s fun. You should definitely just bounce on hers and see how you like it!

      I live several stories up in a high-rise, but no one lives under me. That’s actually why I chose this unit, but the trampoline doesn’t make noise. I’ll just to jump on it again soon t make sure that’s true. LOL

    This is awesome! I have looked at the basic ones for years and the one that there is an infomercial for but have been concerned about the stability of them. I would love a chance to win one! Thanks for the information!

    I had a little mini trampoline many many years ago (my 25 year old was 2 or 3 at the time) and it was amazing! I hope that you enjoy yours! I would love to have one again!
