Train Hard - Stay Humble

Recently I went to Sky High Sports in Santa Clara and I highly recommend it. It was only $9 for an hour of jumping which turned out to be more than I bargained for. I got on the trampolines and started bouncing all over the place continually. I went up and down as high as I could, did front flips, back flips, jumped off the walls as far as I could, and finally I was completely exhausted. I had to bend over and take a breather. My lungs burned, I had a cramp, and my shoulders were sore from throwing my arms up. I asked Lindsay how much time was left and she said, "55 minutes." "What?!...It's only been 5 minutes?" I said. I had a lot of jumping ahead of me. I decided to suck it up, make the most of my time, and get a good work out by jumping my ass off. And so I did....and it was awesome. Now here I am two days later and the muscles in my upper body are still sore. Amazingly my legs didn't get sore at all. I had an absolute blast challenging myself with different tramp to tramp combinations and various other jumping challenges. A few times I took a short break by launching myself into the foam pit, but other than that it was an hour of non-stop jumping.

Here are some tips if you decide to go:

Go late! The later the better, because that means less little kiddies to avoid. I went at 5-6 pm and there were still tons of kids. Eventually they learned to give me space because I was going so big, but I almost killed a couple of them.

Reserve your time slot in advance. If you know for sure when you will be there, you can reserve your spot online. Otherwise you might have to wait around for 30-60 minutes when you get there.

Be careful! It is very easy to roll your ankle at this place so make sure to apply the progression method!

I have been here once before. It was awesome!!!

The only thing was that they don't allow flips into the foam pit, which was sorta why I went.

Overall, it is very worth your money if you enjoy trampolines!!!
