A few weeks ago, LL posted about a fresh new fit: Trampolines! In her post, she shared an article that said that 10 minutes of trampolining burns as many calories as 30 minutes of running. That’s phenomenal!
So when a friend of mine suggested that we buy a recent Crowd Cut deal (similar to Groupon/Living Social) for 2 hours of jumping at SkyZone Trampoline Park, I couldn’t resist! Sign me up! Nothing wrong with a 31 year old spending her Friday night at a trampoline park, right?…Right?
There are two local SkyZone parks. We selected the one in Plymouth, and met there last Friday night at 6:30 for our hour-long session of jumping. The Crowd Cut deal was good for two hours, but upon checking in, we received a voucher to use the second hour at a later date. (Date idea, Dusters???)
After checking in, we were given the option to wear special trampoline shoes or go barefoot. Though the trampoline shoes were a bit funky (funky-looking and a bit funky-smelling) we all decided to opt for the shoes and were glad we did. The floors were kind of dirty, and who knows what sort of fungus may have been lurking around….
