Round vs Rectangle Trampolines

When buying a trampoline, you may be asking, should I buy a round or rectangle trampoline? They are both fantastic trampolines for different reasons and the type you should get depends on the purpose of use and the jumpers. Here’s a quick overview of each type.

Round Trampoline

Round trampolines are fantastic for beginners and kids! They are ideal for recreational use in backyard and usually have the option to include netting which are huge drawing cards for many families.

The weight capacity varies depending on the size of the trampoline, with the larger the trampolines being able to accommodate more weight. Our 15 feet round trampoline (the largest size) has a weight capacity of 115kg.

If your jumpers are toddlers or young children, they are beginners on a trampoline! The round trampoline will accommodate for their lack of skill and better accommodate their limitations.

 

Rectangle Trampoline

Our Topline rectangular trampolines are often used by athletes for training. They are perfect for families who have competitive, professional, or Olympic aspirations as well families who just want a quality, sturdy, bouncy, long lasting trampoline.

The benefits of our Topline rectangular trampoline are that it gives the jumpers higher altitude and absorbs more force during the landing. The weight capacity is also 150kg which is a considerable amount more that the round trampolines.

This high quality trampoline will out-perform and outlast any other!

Is Your Trampoline in Top Condition?

Is your trampoline starting to show signs of age, but you’re not ready for a new one just yet? If you want to keep your kids jumping, it is important to maintain your trampoline to improve its life and ensure your safety. Here at Topline Trampolines, we have all of the spare parts you need to keep your trampoline bouncing!

Springs

Are some of your spring slightly over-stretched? Try swapping out these springs with some from a less active area. If the springs are more than slightly over-stretched, get new replacement springs.

Frame

It is important to occasionally remove the legs of the trampoline and check for rust. If the legs are in good condition you can spray with a rust inhibitor.

Mat

If the stitching on your black mat is unravelling, remove the mat and send it in for a re-stitch. Otherwise, if your mat is tearing or worn out you can always order a new one.

Spring Pads

If your spring pads are worn out and need replacing order some new ones to keep your kids happily bouncing.

Net

Does your safety net have some holes in it? It’s a great idea to replace the net to keep your trampoline as safe as possible. Replacement nets are available for both round and rectangle trampolines.

We have replacement parts available to keep your trampoline in tip-top condition. Give us a call if you need to re-vamp your tramp!

How Athletes Use Trampolines For Training

It’s going to be an exciting couple of weeks here in Australia as some of the best athletes in the world are making their way to the Gold Coast! Although Trampoline isn’t getting it’s own spotlight at the Commonwealth Games, it still plays a massive role in training for many athletes.

Did you know that divers spend more than 50% of their time training on trampolines? They don’t get their perfect form just by diving into water all the time! In order to perfect their flips, twists and turns they rely on trampolines.

Not only do trampolines allow them time to achieve the correct form, but they help with building strength and finding balance. They allow divers to perform their tricks without the strain that could come from only training on a diving board.

If you’ve always dreamt of training on an Olympic-style trampoline, look no further! We have a great range of both in and out of ground trampolines that will have you training in no time.

Our trampolines are quality, sturdy and long-lasting. Perfect for up and coming athletes!

Bounce Your Way Into Fitness

Finding exercise that you actually love and enjoy can be a grueling task. If you’re still searching for that one true love, we may have a solution for you. Have you ever considered using a trampoline for exercise? Not only is it actually efficient, working various muscle groups, but it’s a whole lot of fun too! And it has a lot less impact on your bones and joints than other forms of exercise, such as running.

Here are a few different ways that you can incorporate your trampoline into your workout routine:

Simple Bouncing

Just jumping on a trampoline alone is a great form of movement, allowing your body to burn calories. The higher you go, the more energy you are using. Not only does it burn calories, but each time you bounce up and down your muscles react, helping with balance.

Move, move, move! 

If simple bouncing can burn calories, think of all the extra energy you can expel by doing a little dance each time you bounce! Twist, kick, hug your knees, bounce to the beat of music – do whatever movement you want before returning to the straight, upright position for landing.

Jog and Jump

Jog on the spot while bouncing up and down. If you gradually increase your speed and height, this will give you the best workout.

Trampolines can provide a great form of exercise, blending balance and movement. It’s sure to get your heart pumping!

We hate to be the ones to bring it up… but summer is coming to an end. Luckily as Aussies we don’t have to worry about the impending doom of freezing temperatures.

Trampolines are also a great after-school activity to keep the kids active throughout the year. And make sure to accentuate your trampoline with netting so that everyone participating in the bouncing fun stays safe!

Here at Topline Trampolines, we have various sizes and enclosures to guarantee you’ll end up with the perfect trampoline. We’ve identified the best value round trampolines, so you can expect quality.
