Did you know that jumping on a trampoline provides a great cardio session, builds your leg muscles, and tones your abs? If you’re looking for a unique indoor workout this winter, Sky Zone Trampoline Park is a must-try. I hopped on into their new location in Monroeville, and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back!
Since it was my first time at SkyZone, I opted for the 30 minute “open jump” session at $12. After signing a waiver, donning the mandatory orange SkySocks, and listening to the park rules, I headed to the “adult” section of the giant trampoline. Sky Zone separates the jumpers by age and size, so even though there were a lot of children, I didn’t have to worry about getting in their way. Although, when I started jumping, I sure did feel like a kid again! My legs began to burn after just 10 minutes of bouncing on the trampoline (granted, I am pretty out of shape after the holiday season). However, I was amazed at how high I could fly with each jump; I don’t remember by friends’ backyard trampolines ever being this bouncy!
As well as the regular trampoline, SkyZone has a trampoline dodge ball court, basketball hoops, and foam pit that you can jump or even flip into. SkyZone is great afternoon out for the whole family but would also be a blast with a group of adults who are kids at heart. At 10pm on Saturdays, the Monroeville location has 14+ nights if you want to avoid little kids. (Too bad they don’t have a 21+ night, too, am I right?!) SkyZone also offers “SkyRobics” instructor-led aerobics classes. They’re not yet available at their new Monroeville location, but as soon as they are, I’ll be the first one to sign up!
