When you jump, every muscle, tendon, organ and cell in your body is strengthened. It’s also great for toning.

Jumping conditions and strengthens the heart that allows the resting heart to beat less often. This in turn sends a stronger surge of blood through the veins. Proven to increase your metabolic rate, it helps your body to process nutrients more efficiently and keep your weight down. But, the very best thing about trampolining is that it’s heaps of fun for people of all ages.”
