Double Your Family’s Fun With Trampoline Basketball Rings

How can something that is fun and enjoyable like jumping on a trampoline be more awesome? By adding trampoline basketball rings, that’s how!

Aside from being a fun activity that kids and adults of almost any age can enjoy, trampolining is known to offer several benefits. For your young ones, jumping on a trampoline can help develop their motor skills and increase their coordination, agility, stamina and rhythm. For adults, trampolining offers the benefits of a great cardiovascular exercise without the drawbacks of stressing muscles and joints that are usually associated with other forms of exercise like running. Because it is a relatively stress-free and fun activity, you can spend countless hours having fun with your family while burning a significant amount of calories.

On the other hand, basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world, brought to the limelight by Michael Jordan and modern hoop heroes like Kobe Bryant and Lebron James. Elite basketball players are known for their superb athleticism, endurance and show stopping shooting and passing skills. However, you do not have to play a full court or even a half-court game to reap the benefits of playing basketball. All you need is a basketball ring.

Shooting hoops is a full-body workout that engages the whole body, from your upper body and your core, right down to your lower body. Aiming the ball so that it swooshes into the goal requires eye-hand coordination which constant practice can develop. Shooting a basketball is also good for joint mobility as it engages the neck, shoulders and the upper back.

And like most exercises, shooting hoops offers the benefit of lymphatic drainage. The lymph fluid is an essential component of the immune system and is responsible for trapping microbes and abnormal cells and eliminating them from the body. This fluid is moved from the body through muscle movement.

If you enjoy jumping on a trampoline and shooting basketball, you can enjoy both activities by installing a trampoline basketball ring. Double your family’s fun with this nifty accessory that can be attached to your trampoline’s enclosure pole. Now you can reap the benefits of jumping on a trampoline and shooting a basketball in just one activity. For your kids, they can double their enjoyment as well as gain the benefits of both activities in a fraction of the time it would take if you do each activity on its own. You can also increase the amount of calories that can be burned as you engage your whole body.
