  11. 11. Pros Cons  Exercise – jumping on your trampoline is good exercise.  Fun – jumping is fun, social, and you can try new tricks, or just jump high.  Safety #1 – With spring pads, its almost impossible to get a foot caught.  Safety #2 – If your worried about falling off, don’t worry, draw a big X in the middle, and make a rule that you have to jump on the X.  When it snows, you have to shovel the snow off it, or its too much weight on the springs.  If you are fooling around, you could get a spinal injury.  Doctors often do not recommend trampolines as they see lots of injuries.
