JUMP FOR JOY!
May told us her family hadn’t made travel plans for the March school break, so we offered her and her boys a different bonding activity – trampolining. Tiffany Lum, instructor from Amped Trampoline Park, shows them a few simple tricks.
Enjoying a mum-andkids moment At the end of the class, May and her boys collapse, laughing, onto the trampoline to catch their breath. “This is way more tiring than I thought! No wonder they say 10 minutes of jumping is equivalent to a 30-minute run!” says May.
We can do it! Keyan goes for another shot at the trampoline. Supporting him on both sides, Shang and May grab his hands and together, they make a big leap for it!
Basics first The first move Tiffany demonstrates is a Seat Drop – where May has to land on the trampoline in a seated position with her legs straight before bouncing back onto her feet.
A helping hand… Keyan is shy and fearful on the trampoline – May has to coax him onto it so he can do a Straight Jump: his body needs to be taut and his arms, lifted above his head.
Tackling a twin jump May and Shang enjoy one-on-one time as they attempt a Tuck Jump together.
