Trampolining is an effective, low-impact form of exercise which in recent years has become another method of keeping fit. Whether you work out on a large, backyard trampoline or a rebounder, jumping burns a significant number of calories. The intense workout for the cardiovascular system and muscles helps increase metabolic rate and all-over muscle tone.

Calories Burned Trampolining

After jumping on a trampoline for 10 minutes, a 150-pound adult burns around 42 calories. A 30 minute workout burns 126 calories. The same 30 minute workout performed by a 200-pound individual burns 167 calories. The exact number of calories burned during a workout depend on the intensity of the bouncing and the type of jumps performed. It also depends on the height, weight and age of the participant. The heavier you are the more calories you burn while bouncing.

Rebounding

Mini-trampolines, called rebounders, are small enough to fit in your living room, allowing you to work out in the comfort of your home. A 10 minute workout burns 53 calories for a 150-pound individual, while a 200-pound adult burns 71 calories in the same 10 minutes. A 30 minute workout burns 159 and 213 calories, respectively, putting rebounding into the same calorie-burning range as a 30 minute brisk walk or a session of water aerobics.

Research by NASA

The benefits of using a trampoline to burn calories and increase fitness were researched by NASA. They found that 10 minutes bouncing on a trampoline is a more efficient cardiovascular workout than over 30 minutes of running. The report states that “for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running.”
