The whole point of jumping on a trampoline is to have fun! There's oodles of scientific research on the benefits, but most notably NASA calls it "the most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man" due to the extra gravitational force that the trampoline pad adds. But that was back in the 80's... wait till you see what we've done to the workout now!
