My summer fitness programme with Springfree Trampolines!

0061

When our family were made summer blog ambassadors for the fabulous Springfree Trampolines, at the forefront of my mind was how happy I was for the children, and how lucky they were to be able to test-drive such a great outdoor ‘toy’. 

What I didn’t realise is how hooked I would become on our new trampoline, and how it has already become a staple part of my exercise routine. You see, the thing I love most about have a good old post-kiddy-bedtime bounce, is that it really gives me the ability to ‘switch off’. I do going running, and for the most part I enjoy it, but unlike some people I don’t actually find it particularly helps me to unwind or be alone with my thoughts. I think this is probably due to where we live, and that when I’m running, I’m often concentrating on not running into people or dodging oncoming traffic as I cross roads. With the trampoline in my quiet garden, I really do feel so peaceful bouncing away, and love the fact I get some time to think. 

It’s certainly decent exercise (10 mins constant bouncing is the equivalent of a 30 minute jog), but yet I feel really relaxed doing it (and it has the bonus that you don’t have the general public watching you become a sweaty, panting mess). Being able to exercise at home is certainly handy when you have children and possibly can’t go out on an evening/morning if it’s only you around, and this (in my opinion) is infinitely more enjoyable than puffing away and trying to avoid kicking a vase/photo frame/toy garage when doing my ‘Davina’ fitness DVD (soz Dav). 

So…with all this in mind I thought I’d share the Springfree fitness programme that I’m currently using (along with some of my own moves, natch 😉 ). The programme was developed by fitness expert Rod Porter, and can be tailored to the abilities of the user. Here I’ve focused on some basic beginner movements, as I can conclude that just because you loved trampolining aged 10 at school, it does not make you an expert! And of course, please consult a doctor before starting any new exercise program.

I’ve really found that trampolining has quickly and easily become one of my favourite forms of exercise, something that I would never have imagined.

Here are some snaps of me enjoying a bit of a bounce, with the above fitness programme in mind!

Top tip: Make sure you have those boobies strapped down 😉

    OMG, only you would make jumping on a trampoline look cool. You do make me feel like I should start working out on my kids’ trampoline, but I worry that my neighbours would enjoy it too much. 🙂 x

      Haha, luckily I think my neighbours are turning a blind eye, or at least not laughing at me to my face! 🙂 x

    Hahaha this is brilliant! Love the pics! And no, I’d never really consider the kids trampoline as a fitness thing, but I guess, why not?! Bet your neighbours keep thinking its the kids on it, then seeing you bouncing around!! x
