Looking for a fun, easy, low-cost workout? Then look no further, because all it requires is a jump rope. There's a reason why we all used o love it in elementary school- it's simple and effective. The TKO jump rope, available at Macy's, is one of the most effective and smooth ropes I have tried. TKO also specializes in fitness equipment such as boxing and weights. The jump rope comes with a soft rubber grip so it feels comfortable holding the handles and is 9 feet so length should be no issue.
Jumping rope is an effective exercise that provides cardio benefits as well as toning muscles! It's simple and when done correctly, can actually have less of an impact on your knees than jogging. (that's always something I'm concerned about when thinking about my exercise routine) It's also great for HIIT workouts (high intensity interval training which are 10-15 minutes of intense exercise.)
Best thing about jump roping? You can practically do it anywhere! In your backyard, hotel room, living room- just make sure there's no one around!
