Urban Rebounder: The Affordable Mini Exercise Trampoline

While the mini trampoline is often thought of as a child’s toy, the Urban Rebounder not only challenges that idea, it claims a full out victory. This trampoline is truly designed for everyone, from the very young to those more advanced in years. The exerciser itself is made with jumbo tapered heavy duty springs, military grade quality steel pins, a high yield steel frame, and a sturdy Permatron mat, all working together to create a soft, supple bounce. These components join forces to create a low impact fitness device that is gentle on joints while providing a strong, stable platform for even the most energetic cardio routine. Supporting up to 300 lbs, this is not your average rebounder!

Mini Trampoline Games

Tired of the same old routine on your rebounder?  There may be ways you can use a mini trampoline for things other than keeping fit or simply bouncing up and down.  You can get even more out of your tramp with a little creativity.  We’ve put together some examples of games you can play on your mini trampoline so you can continue to have fun with it for years to come.

Mini Trampoline Games For Children

Mini Trampoline GamesTrampoline games are especially effective for little ones.  These can be played both indoors and outside so your little ones can enjoy active play in any weather.  Before trying these games, make sure you have chosen the best mini trampoline for your child.

Counting – For young ones just learning how to count, a great game to reinforce numbers is the counting game.  Simply have your child count (one, two, three, four…) each time they bounce.  Once they have counted as high as possible, they have to stop bouncing.  They can then start again from the beginning.  This may sound like a simple exercise, but it will accomplish a few things.  Number one, it encourages your child to learn how to count higher in order to get more bounces in per round.  Secondly, it helps reinforce the numbers they already know by tying them into a physical activity.  Finally, it gives your child an excuse to exercise!

What Kind of Shoes Should I Wear on a Mini Trampoline?

The great thing about a mini trampoline is that it can be used both inside and outside.  This begs the question then: what kind of footwear is most appropriate?  Will certain shoes damage the trampoline pad?  Is it safe to bounce in your bare feet?  What about socks?

We’re here to answer these questions once and for all so that you can maximize your comfort while also being safe.

What You SHOULD Wear on Your Feet

Lets start by going over the footwear we recommend you DO use on your mini trampoline.  Of course, you should first consult any documentation that came with your rebounder for specific instructions from the manufacturer.

[easyazon-link asin=”B001FWY35A”]Tennis Shoes[/easyazon-link]

[easyazon-image-link asin=”B0029LI8U2″ alt=”ASICS Men’s GEL-Strike 2 Running Shoe,White/Navy/Gold,8 D US” src=”” align=”left” width=”160″ height=”160″]A pair of [easyazon-link asin=”B001FWY35A”]tennis[/easyazon-link], [easyazon-link asin=”B002EQA3PU”]running[/easyazon-link], or [easyazon-link asin=”B0031Y6ZV0″]cross training[/easyazon-link] shoes are ideal for working out on a mini trampoline.  They have enough traction on the soles to ensure you don’t slip, yet they are still soft enough to not cause damage to the trampoline surface over time.  On top of that, these shoes offer good support for those that have weak arches or if you find your feet hurt after a round on the mini trampoline. These shoes are made for jumping, which will allow you to stay stable when bouncing your way to you fitness goals.

Bare Feet!

Even better than tennis shoes are no shoes.  Your bare feet come equipped with a natural non-slip sole.  You will also be able to feel the subtle changes in the surface of the mini trampoline which will allow you to adapt to changes in your bouncing pattern.  Also, jumping on your naked feet will help strengthen your foot muscles that would otherwise not be used while wearing shoes. It really comes down to comfort and preference whether you choose to wear tennis shoes or leave your feet bare.
