When George Nissen, one of the founders of what we currently know as a trampoline, came across the term in the 1930s, he embraced it as a signature.
Trampolines come in all shapes and sizes nowadays. This expert mat has marginally more bounce due to its enhanced porosity and reduced air resistance. Around the edge of the trampoline will be a cushioned place. Added cushioned mats are available for greater safety. These generally have their own additional frame for support and are placed just over the edge of the trampoline, in the event the bouncer drops towards the hard edge or is in danger of falling from the trampoline.
Some have a cross woven into the fabric of this mat, indicating the center point of the trampoline. This is a security feature aimed at assisting the bouncer to remain in the safest point of this trampoline – the center.
Other security features are available such as enclosures or nets to encircle the trampoline. All are designed to protect against the trampoliner falling and sustaining harm. This is very important if your trampoline is going to be sited on or near a hard surface, like a deck or patio.
A cover is an excellent idea since it will keep your trampoline free from debris such as leaves and bird droppings. An anchor kit will prevent your trampoline moving around when in use and will keep down in case of strong winds, which may cause a whole lot of harm to trampolines, despite their sturdy structures.
For smaller kids, a trampoline ladder can help to prevent accidents when getting on and off the trampoline.
Trampolining is great and fun aerobic exercise for all age groups. It enhances co-ordination, balance, rhythm and time and is helpful training for other sports like skiing.
