Introducing the latest extreme sport, trampoline wall. The sport is being championed by an amazing extreme athlete named Christophe Hamel. His amazing trampoline stunts and jumps have been a YouTube sensation for the last few years. Viewers are absolutely amazed at how Christophe is able to complete feats of gravity with pinpoint precision. We cannot recommend trying anything shown in the video. The stunts were done by a professional with years of training and are extremely dangerous.
American Ninja Warrior premiered this week with the first episode of Season 7. The challenging course in Venice took down many hopeful warriors but one part of the course seemed to take out the most. The Hour Glass Drop was the "glass ceiling" that the majority of contestants could not break through. To conquer the Hour Glass Drop, contestants had to drop onto a trampoline from mid-air and jump to grab a hanging rope to get to the other platform.
One courageous warrior by the name of Brian Kretsch suffered a broken leg in a previous portion of the course and bravely continued to attempt the Hour Glass Drop. Running on what had to be pure adrenaline, Brian drops onto the trampoline with a broken leg. Check it out:
I would hope that we can all recall at least one teacher in our school days that made the effort to really jump out and teach us something cool. Well, Nathan Ziegler, of Minneapolis has been doing just that with his "Minnesota Cold" video series on YouTube.
In his latest video, Nathan Ziegler, takes a freezing cold plunge onto a frozen trampoline. Since posting the video earlier in the week, it has gone viral with almost 3 million views. We applaud Mr. Ziegler for his creativity and willingness to brave the icy cold trampoline. We also hope that this inspires other teachers around the country to step it up and make a real effort in reaching their students. Just remember, this is not what we mean by trampoline winterization!
Check out the cool trampoline clip here:
Ziegler so far has produced 13 videos in his "Minnesota Cold" series. In other videos, he is seen blowing bubbles that freeze and pounding a nail with a frozen banana, to name a few of the cold-air activities.
Ziegler is a former science teacher and is now a school principal. We think he is a pretty cool guy too!
With the start of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Soccer fever has taken over. We have a fun way to get in on the action from the comfort of your own backyard. Yes, you guessed it, it involves a trampoline!
With the following how-to instructions, I will show you how to easily transform your backyard trampoline into a soccer field for little or no cost.
Step 1. Required Items:
1. Round or Rectangular Trampoline with Safety Net
2. Bright colored string rope
3. A few balls in various sizes
Step 2: Assembly
With the bright string rope you have you must go through every so many holes in the safety net (See picture below). It is sometimes helpful to measure out your desired goal size and mark it with scotch tape or painter's tape. The size of the goal will depend on the size of the balls and the size of the trampoline.
Step 3: Simple Playing Rules
1v1 (one on one)
Each player is the goalie and the scoring player.
You cannot use your hands to score, only to defend your goal.
Obviously if the ball hits the inside the goal its a goal.
2v2 or more (preferable on larger trampolines)
Double down and draw out 2 goals (one on each side).
Each team will have their own goal.
Besides that all the rules are the same.
Scroll down to see example video. Video clip shows open/cut net which is not recommended.
Lastly, remember to have fun but also be safe. Safety net should be well secured at all times.
This latest trampoline video starts out like many we have seen in the past. An attractive girl in a small bikini is jumping on a backyard trampoline. What happens next is what sets this clip apart from the rest. She decided to perform a front flip and lands on her face. Ouch, this hot bikini girl was lacking the trampoline skills to pull off the trampoline flip. This one is definitely a FAIL!

Erica Bigler, an occupational therapist at the Lakeside Center for Autism, said students who use the trampoline show increased muscle and bone strength and cardio endurance. "They have improved balance and kinesthetic awareness".
Newton Miller, 7, has a peculiar habit when he’s feeling anxious or bored: he squats on the floor and leaps into the air like a frog. The activity can be hazardous when he jumps off the bay window in his living room or while running errands with his mother. He once crashed into a shopper while he was “frogging” at the grocery store.
Newton’s mother Deirdre believes her son’s desire to jump is a consequence of his autism. And, she’s found an appropriate place for him to jump as much as he wants without hurting himself or others: a trampoline.
Autism spectrum disorder is a range of complex neurodevelopment disorders
characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties and restricted,
repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behavior.
The Lakeside Center for Autism in Issaquah uses a trampoline, donated by Springfree
Trampoline, to help children with autism. The trampoline is used
for speech, occupational, physical and behavioral therapies.
Erica Bigler, an occupational therapist at Lakeside, said students who use
the trampoline show increased muscle and bone strength and cardio endurance.
They have improved balance and kinesthetic awareness.
Bigler works with a 5-year-old boy who came to the center with poor core
strength. He would trip and fall often during therapy sessions until he started
jumping on the trampoline.
“You can see quite a difference in how he can control his body more
effectively,” Bigler said.
The same student had poor social skills, like many other children with
autism. But, Bigler said when kids jump together on a trampoline they share an
enjoyable activity and develop increased body awareness around their peers.
“He typically prefers isolated play, but when he’s on the trampoline he’s
having such a good time,” Bigler said. “It’s one of the only places I see him
interact with a peer and sustain attention on a game.”
Speech therapists at Lakeside use the trampoline as a motivational tool,
allowing children to play on the trampoline if they speak or repeat a word.
“He’ll do amazing things for the trampoline,” Deirdre said of Newton.
Teachers also use the trampoline to teach students how to follow directions by
playing games, such as “Simon Says.”
Children with autism tend to learn more effectively when they are able to
reinforce their intellectual development with physical movements, so staff
members at Lakeside often write words on the trampoline with chalk and ask
students to jump from one word to another to form a sentence.
“It’s amazing what kids on that spectrum can do on a trampoline that they
might not have been able to without that sensory input,” Bigler said. “You see
kids going from disengaged and non-communicative to making eye contact and being
more aware of what’s going on.”
While Deirdre said Newton is often under-stimulated, the trampoline offers
him an outlet to expel his energy and has improved his concentration.
“When he’s [frogging] at Lakeside they can move it to an appropriate
environment,” she said. “We’re not denying it to him but giving him an
But, kids at the Lakeside Center for Autism are not the only ones reporting
life-changing results; adults living with autism in the community are also
benefitting from trampolines.
Anabelle Listic, a 28-year-old Seattle woman with autism has two
trampolines at home and uses them daily to process information and cope with
“My moments of true clarity always happen when I’m on my trampoline,” Listic
said. “It’s like meditation to me.”
When Listic temporarily moved to Oregon years ago, she brought a trampoline
with her instead of a bed.
“I don’t ever want to have to live without jumping on a trampoline,” she
said. “When I’m on a trampoline everything feels effortless and makes sense and
Listic even took her trampoline on a light rail train once. A friend had
invited her to the opening of his art exhibit but Listic was feeling anxious
about the event. So, she brought a 48-inch trampoline on the light rail and into
“I was either going to bring it with me or not go,” Listic said. “It was
She said just sitting or lying on a trampoline can help people with
“Sometimes I just lie on my trampoline and pound my fists on it. I’m moving
that muscle and it’s self-regulating and soothing. That tiny bit of rebounding
feels safe and comfortable to me.”
