How to Assemble Trampoline in your Gym

Fitness is just like fashion. There are trends like the heartbeat pumping Zumba or the strengthening tae-bo. Everyone in the gym always looks for something new to do as doing the usual running and lifting weights combo can be quite boring and routinely. Jumping on a trampoline with a complete set of trampoline parts is a good alternative and something everyone will enjoy. That is why, it is a plus if you assemble a trampoline at your gym.

Trampolines are fairly easy to assemble as long as you have all the parts with you. Usually, the manufacturer provides the instructions on a video in their website and they also have a manual together with the product. Remember to follow each step to avoid confusion. Assembling the trampoline wrong will pose a lot of danger to anyone including you. Here are the easy ways to assemble a trampoline at your gym.

Settle Down

Lay all the parts from the box. Cross check if you have everything you need. The instruction manual has all the pictures and labels of all the parts you will need to assemble the entire piece. It is like laying out all the pieces of a puzzle, only the parts are three-dimensional.

Connect, connect, and connect!

Put the frame together. It should form the shape of the image of the trampoline you have usually on the box. If you bought a square one but ended up with a round frame, you might want to do the frame again. Make sure everything is connected properly. If they don’t, they will bend and break when someone hops on it. So get it right and put them together with utmost care.

Spring Fun

Lay down your mat in the middle of the frame. Put springs on the 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00 position of the clock. Once you’re done, start with one of the primarily attached springs then count to four. Put another spring in. Do so until you’ve done the entire trampoline. There will be three that are left without springs. Start with the ones in the middle. With a partner, try to push in the trampoline frame towards the centre. You have to do it with someone at the same time in opposite positions. This will help in the tension and pressure of the trampoline. After that, you can put the rest of the springs. Et voila, you have a trampoline!

Trampolines are very easy to assemble as long as you have patience and perseverance. There are no shortcuts in doing this as long as no trampoline parts are missing and instructions are followed well. Once you have a trampoline in the gym, you are sure to have everyone excited and become more inspired to train. Above all, you’ll have fun, too. Just make sure you purchase the correct trampoline.
