For years I resisted the idea to purchase a trampoline for our kids and for our home. I had a lot of practical reasons why this would not be a good purchase for our family. First and top of the list was it was too expensive. I thought this was another great idea for a Christmas gift but one that would never get used. I had visions of the tree house that we spent a lot of money and hard work to build only to sit vacant through the years.
When I grew up, we never had a trampoline, and the friends that did have one they were old, rusty and dangerous at best. So I had never had much interest in having one of these as an eyesore in my yard.
For years the kids (and at times my wife) persisted in asking for us to consider purchasing a trampoline. So after doing some research and finding a pretty cool one that won’t rust and wasn’t dangerous, I gave in and we bought one.
I will have to say that I have been really amazed at the results. Not only do the kids use it almost everyday, I found there are a number of other benefits I never expected as well.
Here are the top 5 benefits we’ve found in owning a trampoline. And then I added 1 more!
So even though I am a man, I can admit (this one time) that I was wrong. What I once thought would be a terrible idea, turned out to be a great benefit to our kids and an asset to our family!
