I usually enjoy spending my Sunday afternoons chilling and relaxing on the couch. But recently I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon doing something very different… I brought out my inner child jumping on trampolines! 🙂 The London branch of Flip Out opened earlier this year in Wandsworth. Flip Out is the UK’s leading trampoline operator with indoor venues all over the country filled with 100s of interconnected trampolines.
The idea was born in Sydney back in 2012 when the CEO Brent Grundy was sitting in a play centre waiting for a kid’s party to finish. He noticed the venue was also filled with kids that were too big to enjoy the facilities and plenty of adults that were waiting around. This gave him the inspiration for Flip Out – to create an environment where both adults and children could be entertained.
I was quite surprised at what a good workout trampolining is. I haven’t done anything like this for donkey years! The exhilarating feeling of bouncing up and down on a trampoline while listening to music can get addictive. Plus the adrenaline rush too 🙂 I needed to take a break every so often just to catch my breath. Apparently an hour of trampolining can burn 1000 calories! The following day I was amazed at how stiff and sore I was from my trampolining experience.
Check out the Flip Out website for all the locations around the UK. I would recommend booking online where you can choose the date and time you’d like to attend and can sign your waiver too. This saves time at the venue when checking in. For an hour session, it costs £12. It’s not badly priced in my opinion when a single session at most fitness studios can easily start from £20.
So if you’re looking for something different and fun to do, then visit Flip Out. PS. It’s also a great place to take your kids to work off all that excess energy too 😉
