Bounce! Trampoline Sports, an exciting new concept in recreation, fitness, and fun, celebrated the grand opening of its second facility September 7 and 8. Bounce! Trampoline Sports offers Long Islanders an unprecedented opportunity to safely play, have fun, and get fit on spacious courts of interconnected trampolines.
In conjunction with its grand opening weekend, Bounce! hosted a fundraiser for the Nassau County Firefighter Burn Center Fund on the 7th and another on Sunday, September 8, for the Nassau County Detectives’ Charitable Foundation. The total of the two donations was over $7,300.
During its opening week, Bounce! was featured on Fox & Friends, CBS Live from the Couch, Fios1 News, and Good Day NY. Bounce! was also featured on the Today Show when the original Bounce! in Valley Cottage, NY, opened in December 2011.
According to Fried and his partners, the Caplan family of Old Westbury and Michael Gross of upstate Woodstock, cleanliness and safety are the top considerations at Bounce! “Our pledge is to keep the facility immaculate, safe, and scrupulously maintained so that every day it looks like it just opened for business,” says general manager Nick Caplan. He adds that NASA research shows that supervised jumping on trampolines is “the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man” and this low-impact workout helps tone muscles, burn fat, reduce stress, and improve coordination for all ages.
Bounce! offers fitness classes for all ages and levels, open jump time, trampoline dodgeball, slam-dunk basketball, foam-pit jumping, and both individual and group trampoline training classes taught by qualified instructors. At the Rockland facility, a “Have Fun and Get Fit” program for overweight and/or physically inactive youngsters that registered 25 participants for its first session has been enormously successful, motivating the kids to exercise and establish overall healthier eating and activity habits. Explains Caplan, “We developed an eight-week program that incorporates structured exercise, nutritional counseling, and group play and competition. The parents and kids both love the program. The moms say that it’s so much fun, the kids don’t think of it as exercise!”
The unique Long Island complex has private party rooms for birthdays and corporate team building, a snack bar, a WiFi lounge with several large HDTVs, and closed-circuit monitoring of the athletic courts. There is also a separate Bounce! Jr. Zone, where kids ages 6 and under can bounce on their own trampolines, jump into separate foam pits, or play on a giant inflatable obstacles courses. Bounce! has been built from start to finish to meet all ASTM International Standards of safety.
