Anti-Gravity Trampoline and Tumbling
Benefits Found Nowhere Else in Sports!
• There is no better activity than trampoline to train spatial awareness, a critical skill in all sports. Additionally, spatial awareness is considered one of the ‘eight intelligences’ and has been linked to enhanced cognitive development.
• The inherent FUN of trampoline disguises the amount of energy being expended! Unlike so many children’s activities, when on trampoline, children eagerly sustain an activity level that leads to genuine fitness including: cardiovascular health; leg and core strength; calorie burning and weight loss.
• At the bottom of every bounce, gravity is 2-5x body weight. This compresses every cell in the body helping the lymph and other circulatory systems eliminate toxins from the body;
• Trampoline also helps: the vestibular system; optical tracking and peripheral vision; fear management; concentration and attention to detail; and so much more.
Tramp Fit Class – This class has a fitness station that is geared towards developing flexibility, strength and coordination needed for trampoline.
Anti Gravity Class – This class is for school-age children and is a ‘must-have’ for the backyard trampoline enthusiast, the cheerleader, or the child who wants to move into any sport that requires aerial awareness. The class will emphasize proper (safe!) progressions for somersaulting* as well at the backhandspring. Success in this class requires a certain standard of fitness.
*Note: somersaults take place in the air! We take pride in teaching somersaults which have shape and form and are safer than ‘flips’.
TnT Class – This skill-oriented class is for school-age children and teaches the classic three TnT sports disciplines (trampoline, tumbling, double mini-trampoline) using such adventures as Alligator Island, Hip Hop Hop Scotch, Little Red Rolling Hood and more! Tumbling skills taught in this class include: basic rolls, handstand, limbering, cartwheel, round off, front and back handsprings, somersaults. Trampoline skills taught in this class include: basic rolls, shapes, positions, rotation initiation drops, turns, twists and somersaults. Double mini-trampoline skills include the above as well as running form and safe landings. Success in this class requires a certain standard of fitness.
