In Kenya, most adults and children spend their day sitting. We sit in the car as we shuttle back and forth between home, school, office, shopping, taking our kids to different activities and so on. Back home, we continue to sit glued to our TV sets, at the computer desk playing games and browsing or struggling with homework. Given the congestion in cities like Nairobi and the heavy pollution on our chaotic footpaths along our roads, we lack the pleasure of having nice long walks or other things considered normal in developed countries such as riding a bike, kids playing football in the front yard or other vigorous activities. But the dilemma still is how do we get our children to leave the couch and go outdoors where they can have fun while keeping fit by themselves, with friends and family members?
The answer is at hand provided you have a small area where you can place one of Nairobi’s latest attractions – A super-size German Hudora Trampoline! This healthy and fun activity is currently taking Europe and the United States by storm and thank God it is finally in Kenya.
The prevalence of overweight children is going up every day and with obesity comes other problems that your children are at risk of getting. These conditions include heart disease, bone and joint problems, sleep complications and even social disturbances. The child is subjected to bullying by other children lowering their confidence and self-esteem. Exercise is therefore a good solution to prevent these problems and also reduce the weight so that your child remains healthy and active.
The hurdle comes when you have to convince your child to exercise. It can be difficult to have them running but with trampolining, they do not see it as a torturous activity but as a fun and effortless recreational activity. It also gives them confidence to try out other sports and in the end they maintain a healthy weight for their age. Bouncing on the trampoline is a great aerobic exercise which has even been used to train astronauts and due to its popularity it became an official Olympic sport in 1999. “Young people need up to 1 ½ hours of at least moderate intensity physical activity in a day to enhance cardiovascular health”- Norwegian School of Sports Science, Oslo.
Your entire family can get fit and have fun with a 14-foot Hudora Trampoline!
Hudora Trampolines in Keny have been on a high demand and are being purchased more often by parents who want to keep their children and themselves healthy and busy having constructive fun.
Trampolining may hold the key to your child’s brighter athletic future
Trampolining is a simple sport that will keep you active and fit perfectly into your lifestyle while playing an important role in moulding athletes. It enhances abilities such as speed, balance and flexibility which are why many athletes use the trampoline to perfect their skills. They include skaters, gymnasts and even cheerleaders. Whichever sport your child is involved in, the trampolining will help them refine their skills and even help them get to the Olympics!
Keep your family fit and entertained in your home
With the changing lifestyles, more people are opting for recreational activities in their homes and at the same time bringing fitness in the picture. Unlike other entertainment options, a Hudora trampoline serves as quality entertainment with no extra bills for maintenance and repairs. With a trampoline in the premises, your children will continue to be fit and have fun in a safe environment which is the home.
Better growth for your children
Bouncing is fun, plain and simple even for adults. Your children will learn new coordination skills which helps them develop both physically and mentally. They learn skills like balance while at the same time they are having fun. The trampoline is a controlled play zone which means they are less likely to hurt themselves like they would while skating or cycling. Also being a free-fall, the children know what to do to protect them from falling even in other sports.
The National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion in their online article Physical Activity and the Health of Young People, states that children and adolescents who suffer from childhood obesity are more likely to be obese in adulthood. Adults, who are then obese, are at great risk of acquiring heart diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure, some types of cancer and even gall bladder disease.

The National Diabetes Education Program website states that due to the increasing number of children and teenagers who are obese (10-15%), more and more young people are affected by type 2 diabetes. This is double the number of obese children twenty years ago. In several clinic based studies, the percentage of young people who have recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes has increased from <5% before 1994 to 30-50% in the last couple of years.
