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!

To be used at our Chelmsford venue (Newlands Spring Primary School Academy Trust, Dickens Place, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 4UU)

Classes available at the following times:-

Monday 7:30pm

Wednesday 7pm

Saturday 9am
