Many people believe that all trampolines are generally all the same. They just bounce up and down, right?
Though they do look similar to the untrained eye, trampolines come in many different shapes and sizes, and are built for specific purposes.
Comparing a backyard trampoline with a trampoline at your local trampoline club will reveal great differences in both style and quality. Yes, their essential purpose is the same --- to provide a jumping surface --- but the difference in size, shape and amount of bounce is quite significant.
Some trampolines are designed specifically for recreation – fun, fitness, stress relief – while other trampolines are used for professional sporting purposes. New trampoline uses are constantly being invented and current uses continue to evolve to meet ever-changing needs. Trampolinists must keep their intended purpose in mind when buying a trampoline.

Many professional trampolines are especially designed for the Olympic Games and gymnastics clubs, and are therefore the most expensive, costing over $10,000. Due to their increased power and performance, these devices are recommended for trained individuals only.
