A round 8 foot outdoor trampoline is the best type of trampoline to buy. This trampoline will give you the most trampoline for the price and is big enough to accommodate back flips other shenanigans. As the surface area gets bigger the cost goes up, logically. 10 and 12 foot trampolines are also very popular despite their more expensive cost. 13 foot trampolines are becoming more popular due to their large circumference. With 133 feet of bouncing space, they are ideal for big backyards and big families. Square trampolines are also great for large areas. The prices are a little higher and there are not as many accessories for them. A slew of accessories are available for round trampolines.
Trampoline mats are available to replace the old mat once it is worn thin. The mat is the net, or part that is jumped on. Because this piece has the most wear and tear it will probably need to be replaced at least once. Springs are also available should you need to replace one, but it is not very common. Trampoline pads are made to protect the springs and the jumper. The pads are placed over the springs around the entire perimeter of the trampoline. This helps rust from forming on the springs and injury to the jumper when landing on the springs. Trampoline enclosures are excellent for children. These enclosures attach to the base of the trampoline and provide netting that encloses the perimeter of the area. The enclosure is meant to keep a child, or adult, from bouncing off of the trampoline and hitting the ground. The netting is fairly strong and should not tear with normal stress, but is not made to be leaned against or climbed on. Shoe bags are also available to attach around the sides of the trampoline. This is a clean and organized way to keep everyone’s shoes out of the way.
Trampolines can provide hours of entertainment for birthday parties and backyard BBQ’s. Trampolines are an excellent way to exercise and have a good time. Jumping provides an amazing cardio workout while building core strength. Because of the low impact on the knees and joints, it is ideal for those who have arthritis, are overweight, or suffer from knee injuries.
