Parenting – The Jump Off

New Zealand's Top Mummy Blogger Parenting Rotorua Travel Blog Family Springfree Trampoline

The past month, our first with our treasured Springfree Trampoline, has flown by with a blur of little noses pressed to the windows, assessing the rain, the temperature, the amount of towels left in the linen cupboard to dry off the tramp’s mat for the 4th time in a day………….(OMG rain!).

#tgomalife is real guys and my boys have caught the bug HARD.

And when I say my boys, I really mean the whole family.  We are some jumping fools/beans.

When you initially look at the tgoma technology, it’s really easy to get caught up and distracted by the gaming aspect of it.  Yes, this is a super cool and pretty revolutionary gaming platform, but, to me the real value of tgoma lies in the activity tracking benefits.

The ability to track jumps, jump time, energy burnt and height jumped, PLUS create custom goals for each user is invaluable to me.

I’m a very quantitative person – numbers, measurement and statistics just speak to me lol! If I’m able to measure my own exercise whilst engaging with my kids as we take turns battling fruity mutants on the tramp, then I’m going to spend more time outside playing with the boys. Some parents find ‘playtime’ difficult, I’m not scared to admit I’m one of them, but I now find that I’m the instigator of more and more trampoline time because our Springfree is just about our favourite thing ever!

Secondly, we have big boys, not huge by any means, but bigger than average, and destined for the forward pack where Ethan currently plays prop. Dave and I are alway trying to keep them active and we’re loving being able to set goals for E to achieve before he embarks upon more ‘sedentary’ leisure activities. 20 minutes, 300 jumps, kilojoules burned, the choice is yours, it’s all measured and tracked.

To have a little fun this week I challenged Dave and Ethan to a Family Jump Off. We were to use the tgoma to track our individual jumps over 5 days, with the goal of being the Jack Family Jump Off Champ!

Of course winter sickness and rain hampered our efforts but we pressed on – take a look at the video to see how the Jump Off panned out and who logged the most jumps!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
