Have you ever thought about your bone density? No? Well, like most of us, you likely aren’t spending a lot of time thinking about the strength of your skeleton. But maybe you should be! Better bone density makes you less likely to break your bones and reduces the risk of osteoporosis – both noble causes! And with a lower likelihood of breaking bones, you won’t be missing out on any great physical activities – like a great day at a Las Vegas trampoline park – anytime soon!
So how can you help improve your bone density? Well, in the words of a washed-up 80’s duo, jump around! Studies actually show that by jumping 10 times twice a day, you can help increase your bone density.

So when is best to start jumping? Now! Studies show that bone density increases at the greatest rate during adolescence. And while you can still improve your bones as an adult, it’s not as easy as in those teenage years. That’s because you reach your peak bone mass at about age 25, after which (like most physical features) it begins to decline. In fact, for women, five to seven years after menopause bones can lose up to 20 percent of their density. That’s a lot of lost strength!
Unfortunately, as we age, we tend to decrease our activity levels instead of increasing them – and that makes a bad situation even worse. That’s why jumping around – even just 20 times per day – is an important step to strengthening that skeleton. In fact, research shows that even if you run or jog, you’re not getting the bone strengthening benefits that jumping will give you.
Are you convinced? If you ever needed an excuse to spend the afternoon at FLIPnOUT (who needs an excuse?), let your bones be the reason. Like we’ve always said – jumping is for everyone! Let it get in your bones today!
