How easy is it to install in the Arizona sunshine, what’s the soil type like, are there any challenges?
The biggest challenge we have seen In Arizona installing the Capital in-ground trampoline is our hard caliche soil. Many parts of our state require a mini excavator to assist us with our excavation. We have had to hand dig in cases where access was limited and it can definitely be done but it just takes a little more man power and patience to shovel out the clumps of dirt.
Do you feel a trampoline is a good kids alternative for screen time/phones/tablets etc?
I think that purchasing and installing a Capital in-ground trampoline has been one of the best decisions we have made. My kids are constantly being distracted by video games, iPads and TV so having a backyard with a trampoline that they can bounce on and be kids and burn some of their energy off each day has made all the difference in the world!
When we found out that the owner of The Jump Shack trampoline company was married to a tumbling instructor, we thought “a match made in trampolining heaven!” So we asked Hawli (Owner of The Tumble Shack - www.thetumbleshack.com) a couple of questions too!
Have you used your own in-ground trampoline for your work Hawli?Yes when we did tumbling in my backyard our in-ground trampoline was everyone’s favorite rotation to go to! We worked on back handspring’s, backflips and connecting tumbling from the ground to the trampoline. My Students would want to stay after class so they could spend more time on the trampoline and perfecting their tricks.
What are the benefits of tumbling and is this something kids can start getting into by using their trampolines?
Tumbling helps improve flexibility, strength and coordination. Trampolines help to teach skills and make it easier and more fun before taking their skills to the ground. The trampoline really helps them to perfect their skills, body awareness and positions.
