Children of all ages benefit greatly from exercise. One of the more fun ways to get some exercise at home or in the garden is via modern inflatable gym mats. If you’re the type who loves jumping and gymnastics, then you’re probably already familiar with the popular Airtracks. An Airtrack is basically a kind of thick gym mat with air in it. The air in the mat gives an elastic effect, so when you use an Airtrack, you get a lot of extra height on your jumps, and at the same time it’s soft to land on.
The advantage of this extra height is that you have the possibility to do jump series you would otherwise not be able to do on a normal gym mat or on the floor. It’s also a great tool for learning or practicing new jumps that you may not quite have the skills to do on the floor yet. The extra percent that an Airtrack gymnastics mat gives you is often just the bit needed to get the jump right. This makes gymnastics training much easier and, not least, more fun.

Finding the right size and quality for a new Airtrack isn’t always a simple task. You need to consider the skill level of the users, their sizes and how fast you think they will improve their skills. Not much fun in buying a 3 meter Airtrack for someone who will outgrow it 3 months later. Here a 4 meter might be a better choice to begin with.
Airtracks for home training
While most Airtracks are fine in the garden, there are also many who want to exercise on the Airtrack at home, especially on days when the weather is not right to be in the garden.
Size is important here, as few people have room for a 4 metre Airtrack in their home. Here an Airtrack mini of 2.4 or 3 meters (or in some cases 4 meters) may be a better choice. It often fits easily into most larger rooms, and is a great tool for practicing the various jumps, even on those bad weather days.
Unfortunately, few people have room for a larger model in their living room or bedroom, but at the same time you want to be able to practice outside on a large model where there is room for one – so what do you do? One solution could be to use a GymPlay model with a special Velcro connector, and then connect it to another Air-track. That way you can use a small 3 meter inside, and connect it to another 3 meter or longer and use it as a large model outside. This will allow you to get much more enjoyment out of the air-track and the ability to train in multiple ways and locations. This is something you really should consider.
