Jumping is exercise in disguise!
It improves bone density, strengthens the heart and increases your coordination, rhythm, and stamina. The constant change in gravity stimulates and detoxes trillions of cells in your body. Bouncing increases blood circulation and allows children to gain better body control and balance as well as awareness of body positioning. Many professionals recognize that a child’s ability to learn depends on their control of movement. A child’s success in sports, recreation, and the classroom has a direct correlation with movement and muscular strength.
A study by NASA showed that 10 minutes of jumping was equal to 33 minutes of running for cardiovascular strength!
