How many calories does jumping on a trampoline burn?
It is finally confirmed: Jumping on a trampoline can burn 1000 calories in one hour!
Of course, the total number of calories you might lose while bouncing depends on the workouts performed, but generally, those exercises are one of the best ways to get in shape. Just a standard basic bounce will help a 150-pound person to burn around 500 calories in under an hour (according to Harvard Medical School).
As there is a bit more than in other activities such as jogging or swimming, we can see that trampolining is very good, and at the same time low impact workout everyone should try. The number of calories you can lose by jumping on a trampoline is different for every person as it depends on several factors – how much you weigh, what kind of exercises you do, and much more. Some standard number of calories burnt by a 10-minute workout is averaging around 80 – 100, making rebounding 69% more efficient than jogging.
Not only rebounding is good for burning calories but it is a fun way to exercise. Jumping on trampolines, which often involves vigorous movements, can actually stimulate the circulation of lymphatic fluid (waste disposal system) helping you to gain direct stimulation of your immune system.

How does jumping on trampoline influence cells in your body?
You’ve likely heard that trampoline jumping is often referred to as a low-impact exercise. It means that while you are jumping all cells in your body use two types of energy to move around – kinetic and potential energy. Potential energy is stored in the springs and kinetic energy while you are moving in the air up and down. Look at it this way:
- When you are at the highest point of your jump, you have maximum potential energy and zero kinetic.
- When in the middle of the total distance from the trampoline mat during your jump you have maximum kinetic energy.
- When you are back at the bottom touching the mat you have maximum potential energy because of the springs.
What about 1000 calories per hour?
Well, for that kind of calorie loss, there are specially designed workout classes that can be found mostly in trampoline parks all around the USA. While the concept of it is not new, complete and intense workout scenarios along with fitness trainers are considered new. These workout classes are more and more accepted as the popularity of trampoline parks rises each day.
