Jumping on a trampoline almost looks too fun to be a real workout, but it’s a terrific source of cardio and muscle-toning. Even better: It’s lower-impact than running, so your joints will thank you.

A trampoline isn’t just for jumping. Use it as a prop for sit-ups, bench dips, or even to add difficulty to balancing poses like tree and eagle. (And while we’re at it, change up your jumping style for extra fun: go ahead, try a sprint in place or give a little twist while you soar.) If you’re skittish about bringing the bounce into your house, pick a style with a bar to offer extra support.

You’ll have to put your mini-trampoline together but typically, no tools are required and assembly consists of unfolding the tramp, placing on the safety cover and other minor tasks. That’s good news, because it means disassembly is also easy, when you want to take it apart and store it somewhere.
