Yesterday, when I was watching TV, I saw special that startling. Americans are the most overweight people in the world. Physicians and fitness trainers have recommended that jumping on a trampoline at least 30 minutes per day can help burn calories, increase endurance and build core muscles. 6 months ago, I was 260 lbs, and I'm only 5'9". After having my trampoline for 6 months and jumping at least 30 minutes per day, I've lost 65 lbs. I'm now down to 195 lbs. Make sure to do your research when buying a trampoline, because getting the right trampoline that can be very critical. Make sure the frame is at least 1.8mm thick, Grade A polymesh jumping mat and a safety enclosure net. Make sure to get at trampoline that's at least 14' to 16', because there are so many more things you can do with a large trampoline. My children also love the trampoline.
