Why I Love the Mini-Trampoline


You know exercise is good for you but how can you fit it into your life.  The mini trampoline can be a great part of the solution.  The more you sit, the more likely you are to die young.  It’s bad for your brain, your heart, your balance and coordination, and your posture.  This is why more and more people are looking for ways to work standing up and counteract the effects of sitting.  This is where the mini tramp comes in.  It’s great for exercising the parts of you that weaken with sitting.  You can do all kinds of things on them but even gentle bouncing for 5-20 a day will reap significant benefits.  Here’s why I love the mini-trampoline.


  1. It’s cheap.  You can buy a perfectly good one at Canadian Tire for around $40 or get a slightly sturdier model at Sport Chek for about $70.
  2. It easy.  If you were to set it up in your living room you couldn’t help but jump on it a couple times a day.  You don’t need to change your clothes or get sweaty and could easily do it during commercials.
  3. It’s fun.  Admit it, it’s fun.  Who doesn’t like bouncing up and down?
  4. It strengthens posture.  Put your hands on your lower back as you jump and you’ll feel the muscles get engaged.  Over time you will experience significant strength gains and noticeably better posture.
  5. It improves balance.  This is vital for kids with neuro-developmental issues and is equally beneficial for seniors at risk of falling.  Just a few minutes a day is all you need.
  6. It’s versatile.  There are a lot of different things you can do on it depending on what you are trying to achieve.  Try running on the spot, doing jumping jacks, playing catch, one legged jumping or any other exercise you can invent.


You need to find ways to fit exercise into your daily life in small doses.  The mini tramp, along with our free “Exercises for Life” video are a great tools to help do this.
