Given that the spread of coronavirus is showing no signs of slowing down, the idea of home workouts is looking pretty darn appealing again (as much as we love a gym session, right now it just feels a tad risky ahead of seeing granny at Christmas...). Of course though, it's important that any exercise undertaken - wherever you choose to do it - is fun, otherwise there's no way you'll stick to it. One great example? At-home, indoor trampolining. No, seriously!
Not only can bouncing around on a trampette be done to good music, but it's also low intensity (it's always a good idea to have something to offset those online HIIT classes or tougher workouts - no matter your age, your joints will thank you for it) and will get your heart well and truly pumping.
As for the other additional health benefits of trampolining, one study even found that bouncing on a trampette for 20 minutes can burn the same number of calories as if you were to run for the same amount of time. Once you've got a handle of the leaps and jumps, hand weights and resistance bands can also be weaved into your trampoline routine for added gains.
Trampolining regularly can also help to build up stamina while still providing a decent cardio hit and improve muscle tone and co-ordination (according to the NHS), so all in all a mini trampoline is well worth investing in.
Plus - and here's the clincher for those of us living in a smaller space - mini trampolines, or rebounders (if you want to get technical), can also be easily stored away after your session too.
Here, we've rounded up the best mini trampolines on the market so that you can get bouncing ASAP:
1) Fit Bounce Pro II Bungee Rebounder
We hear you! Yes, this mini trampoline is on the steeper end of the scale, but you know what they say - buy cheap, buy twice. The Fit Bounce Pro II rebounder promises to be a brilliant investment as not only can it support up to 150kgs in weight, it's whisper quiet, folds away to store and comes with access to a tonne of online workouts too.
2) Opti Trampoline
The Opti trampoline is able to support up to 15 stone, spans 91.5cm and is super sturdy. Happy boing-ing!
3) Gielmiy 40" Indoor Trampoline
This mini trampoline is able to not only fold in half, but into quarters too, meaning it's super easy to store at home. That definitely gets a big thumbs up from us!
4) Happy Jump's Fitness Trampoline With Handle
Made using bungee elastic cords, Happy Jump say their products offer a superior experience to a traditional metal spring trampoline. It's said that the bungee cords helps to provide a "deeper, smoother, healthier bounce with no negative effect on your joints and ligaments".
