Bring Your A-Game to Your Trampoline Frame!

Custom-Trampoline-Frame-Pads_tfp_R_200a5e00Did you know that we make replacement pads for any trampoline frame out there? Got an old or original Nissen trampoline? No problem. Got an AMF, a Gym Master, an Action folding or non-folding trampoline? What about an in-ground? It’s all good!

Maybe you want a custom color or have a unique gym design that merits a custom cut frame pad to skirt around a spring floor or other piece of equipment or feature of your gym. No problemo, mis amigos!

Some of the Nissen and AMF trampolines use a wide-side frame where an extra bar runs down the length of the frame that allows a coach to stand close and spot their athlete, we do those, too!

If you can jump on it, we can pad the frame around it!

Trampoline beds come in sizes that are either 6ft. x 12ft. or 7ft. x 14ft. This means they have frames that measure approximately 9ft. x 15ft. or 10ft. x 17ft., respectively. Trampoline frames are composed of metal and springs and pokey bits that No One wants to encounter with bare feet or body parts when training or competing. Safety is paramount when employing the forces and hitting the heights we see in gymnastics trampolining.

Our frame pads put your gymnasts out of harms way, so they can concentrate on perfecting their skills.

They’ve mastered the the round-off-back-handspring, now they want to do the really BIG stuff. You can see they’ve got that fire in their spirit, but they’re a little afraid. What do you do?

Strap ‘em in and string ‘em up! One of the best sets of training wheels is the gymnastics spotting rig!

Over-Head-Spotting-RigA spotting rig is a set of ropes and pulleys suspended from the ceiling that are attached to a spotting belt which a coach uses to support gymnasts as they learn and execute flipping and twisting moves. Spotting rigs help gymnasts incorporate advanced elements that are used as part and parcel of a gymnast’s routine or as end bits that put the bang in a dismount for all sorts of gymnastic events such as uneven bars, beam, parallel bars, trampoline, floor and rings.

In addition, to your spotting rig’s many merits instilling flips and twists into muscle memory, spotting rigs are worth their weight in gold for what they do for your gymnasts’ mental state. Fear is a factor when it comes to gymnasts taking their first flights forwards, even more so, backward.
