Trampoline! One of the newest Olympic sports. In 2000 it was a demo, and ever since, Trampoline has been one of the most exciting Olympic sports to watch. Canadian Olympic silver medalist Jason Burnett got his start at Airborne Trampoline as a child, having been signed up for summer camp and then rec trampoline classes. Head Coach Chris Martin recruited Jason into competitive trampoline classes where he competed all through the Provincial levels. Jason eventually started jumping too high for the ceiling, and has continued his training with Olympic team coach Dave Ross at his club ever since.
Canadian Olympic Gold Medalist Rosie MacLennan also got her start at Airborne Trampoline in rec trampoline classes when she was a child, with her older brothers on Airborne’s competitive team at the time, she had fun learning all the proper moves and earning ribbons for passing the rec trampoline classes levels. She now trains with Jason Burnett under Olympic team coach Dave Ross.
Rec Trampoline Classes have long been a staple program at all of the Airborne Trampoline KW in Cambridge and all of our other locations around Ontario, and is a great way to learn the basics of the sport and also how to use all trampolines safely and properly, therefore greatly reducing the risk of injury. Airborne’s rec trampoline classes have a custom designed level system that ensures that every move is taught safely and properly with the right techniques and progressions. Examples of things that are taught in our rec trampoline classes are; what all the safety rules are, how to fall properly, what to do and what not to do, and all the progressions leading up to more difficult skills including flips. For every level passed in our rec trampoline classes, the participant will receive a ribbon signifying their completion of that level.
Over the years, many parents have approached me and said; “My child doesn’t like any other sport. They just sit in front of the TV and computer and eat. They hate exercise and quit everything they start. Now, all my child talks about is how much fun they’re having at Airborne’s trampoline classes.” All the kids are having such a great time that they don’t realize that trampoline is one of the best exercises in existence. You can burn up to 800 calories an hour by jumping on a trampoline. Trampoline classes also help to build coordination, faster reflexes, improves balance, improves flexibility, increases strength, corrects bad posture, gives you more energy, clears our your lymphatic system, and has many more benefits that I don’t have room to describe in this short article.
