Jumping on a trampoline seemed like quite a workout, here is some interesting facts.
Weight loss depends on the ratio of calories consumed to calories burned, as well as factors such as metabolic function. According to CSGNetwork.com’s calorie calculator, an hour of jumping on a trampoline can burn about 240 calories, based on a 150-lb. individual.
FitDay estimates around 150 calories, per hour, for a 35-year-old woman of the same weight. How effectively you burn weight on the trampoline depends on how regularly you jump and how many calories you consume.
While it’s easy to approximate the weight loss based on caloric intake and expenditure, other factors, such as your basal metabolic rate, also affect weight loss. Basal metabolic rate refers to the number of calories your body requires just to carry out basic functions. For example, a person weighing more will need to use more calories to maintain the body’s systems, even when at rest. For those looking to lose weight, one benefit of regular physical activity such as trampolining, is that your metabolism burns fat more quickly as your ratio of muscle to fat improves. As a result, you can lose more weight from the same amount of exercise once your overall condition improves.
