I'm looking for possibilities to do a intensive cardio training at home. Someone advised me to buy a fitness trampoline which actually surprised me a little.

I would like to know the additional advantage of a fitness trampoline in comparison to more classic cardio exercises like a cross trainer.

I'm surprised that fitness trampolines aren't mentioned a lot on SE.

Any advice is appreciated.

    Are you looking at cardio? Leg workout? Core? Reducing injury? Are you looking to jump? Jog? I discussed the use of a small trampoline a bit at fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/27873/…, but I don't know if that's the same s what you're looking for. – Sean Duggan Sep 30 '18 at 23:45
  • @SeanDuggan, thanks for your time and I read your post. I'm looking for a cardio workout at home with little injury chance. I'm not sure a trampoline is the right choice. – 3TW3 Oct 1 '18 at 10:09

A fitness trampoline with knee injuries doesn't sound like the best idea to me. Although the trampoline springs cushion and absorb force your knee can still take pressure which can be dangerous. You don't want to redevelop previously existing injuries.

However the answer to your question - A fitness trampoline can be good for your upper body as well as lower, not to mention cardio. Depending on the intensity in which you use it, it does have many benefits.

However cardio is cardio, whatever you choose to do. As long as you up the intensity and push yourself like anything in fitness, results will follow if you follow the basic disciplines, diet, consistency etc.. so whatever you prefer is what you should pick as it helps you to remain motivated. If you want to jump - then buy a trampoline, if you want to run - Maybe a treadmill or even go for a run outside, if you enjoy the cross trainer - then buy a cross trainer etc etc...

    @3TW3 If you're trying to avoid knee injury cross trainer would likely be most efficient for your situation – Twyxz Oct 1 '18 at 10:13
