Running has always been one of the most effective ways to lose weight quickly and maintain a healthy physique. However, as running is a high-impact activity, placing great amounts of stress on muscles, ligaments and joints. It can eventually lead to knee and hip problems. Running on a trampoline is one weight-loss option as it burns calories and tones muscles without causing stress to the joints. Studies conducted by NASA show running on a trampoline, also known as rebounding, to be up to 68 per cent more effective than jogging.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Warm up before running on a trampoline. Complete five minutes of stretches and lunges.

  2. 2

    Finish your warm up by jumping on the trampoline for five minutes. This will ensure your muscles are well prepared for running.

  3. 3

    Run on the spot, in the centre of the trampoline. Continue for 15 to 30 minutes, depending on fitness level. Thirty minutes of vigorous exercise a day will burn calories and promote weight loss.

  4. 4

    Warm down after completing your workout. Finish with two minutes jumping on the trampoline, followed by five minutes of stretches.
