BOUNCEU
6722 Fort Hamilton Parkway 2nd Floor, (entrance on 67th St. & 9th Ave), Dyker Heights, Brooklyn
347-450-JUMP (5867)

At BounceU, we understand how hard it is to get the kids to exercise. At BounceU, they will get the benefits of exercising and having fun without realizing that it’s good for them. At BounceU, our expert “Bouceologists,” graduated with a BA (bounceology of arts) degree. They concluded that bouncing (the uncontrollable urge to bounce up and down until your cheeks turn red and you are totally exhausted), is one of the many ways to achieve this. New–BounceU Day Camp offered during holidays, spring break, and school closings.

At Rockin’ Jump, we believe exercise should be fun. Instead of stair climbers and weight machines we created a 26,000-square-foot facility where you can soar in open jump arenas, do flips into pools of soft foam cubes, play trampoline dodgeball, and do extraordinary basketball dunks. Some trampoline fitness facts: Jumping burns three times more calories than jogging, six minutes on a trampoline can equal one mile of jogging, jumping puts slight stress on your bones, making them stronger. Come on down to Rockin’ Jump for fitness disguised as fun.
