They offer all the benefits of an intense plyometric workout without the hard impact to joints that traditional jumping can cause. Before you get started with a regular mini trampoline exercise regemine, we suggest practicing some of these basic moves first to get yourself familiarized with moving on the equipment and reduce safety risks.

Step On, Step Off
The first thing you must master is stepping on and off of the mini trampoline. If you can’t do this, everything else becomes obsolete! Make sure when you step on the trampoline, you put one foot in the center and then lean your body weight slowly onto that foot until you can bring your other foot up to join it. When you’re ready to step off, it’s best to do so by stepping off to the rear with one foot. Make sure to look first before you take the step.
Once you feel comfortable doing this, you can turn it into a workout, similar to step aerobics. Just step onto the trampoline with your left foot, bring your right foot up with it. Then step back to the ground with your right foot and bring your left foot down with it. Then repeat with you opposite foot. Continue this at a slow pace and start increasing the speed as necessary to get a wonderful cardiovascular workout!
Another key move to master is simply bouncing up and down on the mini trampoline. In order to do this correctly while avoiding injury you should make sure to keep yourself centered on the trampoline.
Start by standing on the trampoline with your feet together. Begin with short bounces in which your feet don’t leave the surface. As you continue to bounce you can push yourself higher until your feet do leave the trampoline, but take care not to go too high and always note where the ceiling is so you don’t hit your head. You should not bounce more than an inch or two off the trampoline as that is all that is necessary to get the results needed.
A great move to include in your mini trampoline workouts is walking, jogging, or running in place. This is a wonderful cardio workout that lessens the impact to your joints. First start by standing in the center of your trampoline. Then, lift one foot up at a time in a marching movement. The higher you lift your foot, the more of a workout you’ll get. You can then increase your pace to a job or even a run if you feel up to it.
Mini trampolines are surprisingly good for taking your yoga routine to the next level. To start off, simply try balancing on one foot, with your other foot just slightly raised. See how long you can hold this position. Try extending your free leg out to the side, infront of you, and behind you. Once you get the hang of that, you can then try some popular standing you poses like the chair pose or the tree pose. Doing these on your mini trampoline will improve your balance because you’ll be performing them on an flexible surface.
Once you master these basic moves you’ll be ready to move onto more advanced mini trampoline fitness routines.
