Cool Trampoline Tricks for Beginners

Posted on: February 15th, 2019

Trampolining has always been a great way to exercise and a fun way to impress family and friends with some cool tricks and aerial maneuvers. In the following post we will provide you with information on how to learn and master some basic trampoline skills and tricks. Some of the basic trampoline maneuvers that we will cover are learning some basic jumps, and performing simple seat drops and our first twists. These skills will help improve your body awareness and self-confidence and allow you to move to some more complex beginner skills such as Front Drops and Back Drops. Let's start off with the basics of jumping on a trampoline and proper technique.

Straight Jump

A Straight Jump is a vertical jump with the body held straight and arms in a straight line above the body at take-off. It is the most basic skill in trampoline gymnastics and the Straight Jump is often the first skill that a gymnast will learn on the trampoline.

Straight jumps are a key way to teach new gymnasts and trampoline enthusiasts how to jump in a controlled fashion.

Proper Form

  • Arms straight, pointing upward
  • Head between your arms, looking straight ahead
  • Back straight
  • Hips straight
  • Legs straight
  • Knees and feet together
  • Toes pointed at apex of jump

Tuck Jump

A Tuck Jump is a maneuver where from a straight jump start, the knees are pulled up to the chest and the hands must at least briefly grasp the legs at your shins between the knees and ankles.

A Tuck Jump is a common position for many trampoline aerials.

Progression

  • Perform a straight jump.
  • At the peak of the straight jump, tuck by bringing your knees up to your chest. Pull your knees to your chest by briefly grasping the your shins.
  • A properly performed Tuck Jump does not throw off your balance. Always jump directly upward and only execute the tuck if you feel you have proper control over your straight jump.

The Tuck Jump is a prerequisite for many skills, and is referred to as the ‘tuck position'. The tuck jump also introduces the gymnast to more advanced maneuvers such as a 'kickout'.

Proper Form

  • Proper balance on straight jump
  • Knees tucked to chest
  • Hands on the knees or shins
  • Toes pointed downward

Pike Jump

From a straight jump start, with your legs together lift your legs to a straight position parallel to the trampoline and your arms and body reach forwards towards your pointed toes.

Proper Form

  • Back straight, head and eyes looking forward
  • Knees straight
  • Legs horizontal or higher to the trampoline bed
  • Hands touch legs/feet
  • Knees and feet together
  • Toes pointed

Straddle Jump

The Straddle Jump is similar to the pike jump except that the legs are spread sideways approximately 90° apart and the arms reach forward towards the pointed toes.

Proper Form

  • Back straight, head and eyes looking forward
  • Legs apart (more than 90°)
  • Legs horizontal or higher to the trampoline bed
  • Hands touch legs/feet
  • Toes pointed

Seat Drop

Seat Drop or Seated Landing in trampolining is landing in a seated position with your legs straight in front of you. Your hands support your body on either side of your hips and very slightly behind the posterior, palms down with fingers pointed forwards towards your pointed toes.

The seat drop is a good beginner's trick for all ages to learn. To perform the seat drop, start a steady, rhythmic bounce on the trampoline. When you are ready, bounce up on the trampoline and assume a seated position with your legs in front of you. Bounce on your backside and legs on the trampoline, and when you bounce upwards, land back on your feet again and keep bouncing.

Proper Form

  • Start with a straight jump
  • Kick legs out in front of yourself at a 90 degree angle as you descend, landing on your rear end.
  • Legs are straight and body is in a seated position. Keep abdominals firm and back straight.
  • Eyes and head are looking straight ahead
  • Hands are next to the body / hips on the trampoline bed for slight support
  • In seated position hands move from sides to straight in front of you as you bound off of the trampoline and come back to a standing position.
  • Knees and feet together
  • Toes pointed

Swivel hips / Seat Landing Half Twist

Swivel Hips, also known as a Seat Landing Half Twist are the combination of a seat drop, bounce up to a straight position (without landing) and then performing a half twist to land in a second seat drop facing in the opposite direction.

The swivel hips is one of the first combination skills that a gymnast will learn.

Swivel Hips are a great introduction into rotations on a trampoline. Each gained skill allowing the individual to feel more and more comfortable in their progression of more complex skills.

Proper Progression to Swivel Hips Skill

  • Seat drop to feet
  • Seat drop to half twist to feet
  • Half twist to seat drop
  • Seat drop to half twist to feet to seat drop
  • Seat drop to half twist to seat drop (swivel hips)

These skills are just the beginning and are at the core of building a strong foundation for more advanced maneuvers. Always stretch and warm up prior to any trampoline jump or training. Have fun and stay within your comfort zone.

In our next post we will jump into some more complex beginner skills: Twists, Front Drops, and Back Drops.

I Tried a Full-Body Trampoline Workout, and Here’s Why I’d Go Back Again and Again

Posted on: June 20th, 2018

Five minutes into our warmup, I was fully out of breath and my calves were burning like hell. And yet, I couldn't stop smiling because I felt like I was transported back to my childhood at some kid's birthday party. A couple of coworkers and I took the Air Conditioning workout class at San Francisco's House of Air, which is a massive trampoline amusement park for children and adults alike. The three of us sweat it out for 55 minutes on trampolines, alternating between sets of cardio and strength training, with little to no rest in between. Let me tell you: it was challenging, so fun, and exactly what my morning needed.

According to Carlee Williams, House of Air's marketing coordinator and Air Conditioning instructor, jumping for just 10 minutes offers the same benefits as running for 33 minutes does. And after experiencing the class first-hand, I can definitely see how. Jumping up and down alone was honestly enough of a workout, but adding jump squats and plank jacks in between really upped the difficulty. The full-body workout included high-intensity intervals of jump variations (jumping jacks, straddle jumps, tuck jumps, and pikes) and conditioning exercises like mountain climbers and donkey kicks.

Jumping around may look simple enough, but I was surprised at how much core strength was required to stabilize myself the entire time. If your core isn't engaged, it is much more difficult to control your body in the air. At first, we used the trampoline to assist our movements, but once we transitioned into the second half of the class, we learned how to work against the trampoline to add resistance and enhance the workout. Although we used our core throughout the entire class, the workout really worked every inch of our bodies. Because we were using muscles that aren't typically activated in a traditional workout, Carlee warned us that we would be more sore than usual the following morning. A full day hasn't even passed yet, and I can already tell that I'm going to be in a lot of pain tomorrow.

In addition to being a superfun workout, jumping on a trampoline also comes with some amazing benefits, according to Carlee:

  • Elevates energy and mood levels: "Releases endorphins stimulating feelings of happiness, while oxygen flow increases brain function, making one feel more alert."
  • Improves immune system: "Stimulates lymphatic flow, promoting up to 15 times increased body circulation, naturally removing toxins."
  • Improves cardiovascular system: "Strengthens heart function and enhances respiratory efficiency by increasing blood flow and oxygen."
  • Increases muscle strength: "Tones muscles, especially core and leg muscles, improving posture and decreasing body fat, assisting in coordination, body awareness, and sense of balance."
  • Increases bone strength and density: "Provides just enough impact to produce bone minerals that assist in improving bone strength and density, reducing the chance of medical conditions like osteoporosis and arthritis."

By the end of the class, I was completely exhausted and energized at the same time. The workout never really felt like a workout, and the fact that I was able to tone and strengthen while having a great time was purely a bonus. I seriously cannot wait to do this again.

Pacific Beach locals Brittany and Nate are about to meet for the first time in what might be the longest car ride of their lives. First, the EPIC Limo picked up Brittany, a budding event planner.

House of Air Trampoline Parks Expand to Texas

Posted on: February 6th, 2018

Communities in the south Fort Worth area will soon be able to enjoy a new family entertainment venue centered around adrenaline-based fun for the entire family. House of Air Trampoline Parks will open their newest trampoline park, located in Crowley, Texas, on Saturday, March 10, 2018.

The co-owner of House of Air Crowley, Daniel Furney, expressed his excitement about the park and explained why he thinks Crowley is the perfect location, "The housing community in south Fort Worth is really taking off and there is a need for a family entertainment center in the area. People are traveling a good distance to attend a trampoline and adventure park of this magnitude."

The trampoline park will house over 7,000 square-feet of trampolines, features two trampoline dodgeball courts, a custom soft play playground for young kids, two basketball slam dunk courts, an expansive main trampoline court with tumble tracks, a traverse climbing wall, and a multi-attraction pit with a slack line and jousting beam.

House of Air Crowley will also have a large three-lane ninja course equipped with a custom air bag that provides a consistent and soft landing for those attempting the course. The ninja course is expected to be a popular attraction at the park and promises to provide a challenge that will allow parkgoers to feel like a real American Ninja Warrior. Daniel stated, "We took special care when designing the ninja course and wanted to make it difficult for kids to get through the entire course on the first try. We want them to keep coming back with the goal of making it further through the course each time."

In addition to the above-mentioned attractions, the park will also offer guests that seek an interactive experience, two slap & score trampolines. A new trampoline attraction that combines hand-eye coordination and jumping accuracy. "We are basically disguising fitness as fun. Being one of the first in the US to have an interactive attraction like the slap & score is something we expect the kids will really love." Daniel went on to explain that the two games will be paired with a scoreboard that encourages guests to compete for the best score.

The design of the park was more than what attractions to include and where to place them within the facility. Daniel commented, "We designed House of Air Crowley as not only a place where the kids can go and have a blast, but a place where parents can enjoy themselves too."

Parents who wish to simply watch their kids play will be able to relax at the House of Air Café. The full-service café will serve a variety of food and beverage options and promises to have plenty of seating for parents to work, have a cup of coffee, or enjoy time with friends, while their kids enjoy the adventure park.

House of Air Crowley worked with Best American Trampolines to design and equip their entertainment center. Best American is a family owned and operated trampoline park manufacturer and designer located in Lewisville, Texas. They have worked with more than 200 family entertainment centers worldwide. House of Air Crowley is the third park that Best American has designed and manufactured under the House of Air brand.

House of Air Crowley Trampoline Park will be located at 320 E. Main Street in Crowley, Texas and is scheduled to open March 2018. Visit the House of Air Crowley Facebook page for updates on the park’s grand opening event.

Adrenaline Park: Thrill seekers are flipping out over new park

Posted on: August 30th, 2017

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - You only get one chance to make a first impression.

In Tuesday's Zevely Zone, Jeff gets the very first look at Carlsbad's new adrenaline park called House of Air.

The House of Air opens on Thursday. The company hopes to open two more parks in Texas and Poland by the end of the year.

Two new North County sports attractions open next week

Posted on: August 29th, 2017

Two North County attractions opening this month will join the growing list of places where adventurous people can go to bounce, leap, hang, climb or otherwise spend time suspended above the ground.

One is iFly Oceanside, an indoor skydiving facility ton Vista Way just east of El Camino Real, which opened quietly earlier this month and will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony Aug. 24. There are now 65 iFly locations around the world, including six in California and one in Mission Valley.

Indoor skydivers ride a cushion of air, suspended in a vertical wind tunnel that gives the sensation of flying. The experience can be a fun, family activity, but is also a training tool for military and recreational skydivers, said Robert Blomsness, a Navy SEAL veteran who co-owns the franchise with his wife, Melissa. Anyone from age 3 to 103 is welcome, they say.

The other new North County attraction is House of Air, Carlsbad's first indoor trampoline park, scheduled to open Aug. 26 on Innovation Way, off Palomar Airport Road. It's the first spin-off of a successful House of Air park that opened in 2010 in an old airplane hangar in San Francisco.

Trampoline sports, which take a little more legwork than skydiving, are especially popular with the young and confident, said Dave Ogilvie, general manager of the Carlsbad location. The average jumper at a trampoline park is 12 years old, he said.

"They are not old enough to worry about their knees," Ogilvie said. "Our goal is to wear everybody out. We want everybody to go to bed early."

Indoor trampoline parks are sometimes called "adventure parks" or "adrenaline parks" for the thrills experienced by the jumpers.

The Carlsbad park has 34,000 square feet, twice the space of the original San Francisco park, with more trampolines and related activities including trampoline basketball and dodge ball. There are also a rock-climbing wall, a "jousting" wall, from which the loser falls onto a giant air bag, slack lines and other sports, for a total of about nine activities.

Overseeing the Carlsbad activities will be 72 uniformed, part-time employees known as the "flight crew."

Each employee will be trained in safety and first aid, Ogilvie said, and all the activities will be watched by walkie-talkie-toting employees and by 48 separate closed-circuit cameras.

Children must be at least 7 years old for most of the activities. Kids ages 3 through 6 can try something more appropriate to their age and size, such as smaller trampolines or an inflated obstacle course.

There's also an elevated viewing platform where parents can sit and watch their youngsters, while snacking or checking their electronic devices. Packaged food will be available for purchase, and food such as pizza can be delivered.

The trampoline park craze came to North County in 2014, when Get Air opened in a Vista industrial park building, and Sky Zone opened a similar facility in San Marcos. Poway, Chula Vista and San Diego also have trampoline parks.

The parks are especially popular for children's birthday parties and occasional corporate events, Ogilvie said.

The sudden popularity of trampoline parks brings a jump in trampoline-related injuries, as anyone might expect.

Emergency room visits by trampoline jumpers across the United States rose from less than 600 in 2010 to almost 7,000 in 2014, according to a study published last year in the Pediatrics medical journal. The number of trampoline parks increased from 40 to 280 in the same time frame.

"It's inherently dangerous, and we do have injuries," Ogilvie said. "We need to be prepared for that."

Still, the same could be said for roller rinks, a ski resorts and many other popular activities.

Reservations at both new North County facilities can be booked online.

House of Air charges a single entry fee of $16 per hour for all activities, and trampoline jumpers are required to wear a special kind of sticky socks sold for $2 a pair at the park.

At iFly Oceanside, a ticket for a first-time flier costs $79.95 for a package of two flights, or $119.95 for four flights. A repeat visitor pays $54.95 for two flights, or $99.95 for four, and other packages are available.

Finding Flight at San Francisco’s House of Air

Posted on: December 18th, 2013

In 2003, Dave Schaeffer and Paul McGeehan were jumping on a trampoline to practice snowboarding tricks, and so began the idea for House of Air, a place solely for, well, jumping. Where would such space be possible? Finding a suitable space was a challenge until they discovered The Presidio’s airplane hangars from World War I were available as part of a larger revitalization project for the area. Embarking on this territory required extensive plans with the Presidio Trust Committee. Though the committee was enthusiastic to bring such an innovative and diverse business into the neighborhood, they required tight supervision and approval processes to preserve every element of the original look from 1921.
