Research by NASA

The benefits of using a trampoline or bounce house to burn calories and increase fitness were researched by NASA. They found that 10 minutes bouncing on a bounce house is a more efficient cardiovascular workout than over 30 minutes of running. The report states that “for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a bounce house than with running.”

Calories Burned Bouncing

After jumping on a trampoline for 10 minutes, a 80lb person burns around 42 calories. A 30 minute workout burns 126 calories. The same 30 minute workout performed by a 200-pound individual burns 167 calories. The exact number of calories burned during a workout depend on the intensity of the bouncing and the type of jumps performed. It also depends on the height, weight and age of the participant. The heavier you are the more calories you burn while bouncing.
