Posted on 20 February 2011




From your living room to the gym: you can burn those calories every single day with a $10 piece of rope and some good running shoes.

Here’s how:

Buy a jump rope and jump for life!

Before we get into the hard cold facts, here’s what you need:

It’s best that you jump rope with a good pair of shoes. This will protect your feet – much like a runner would. The most important thing to protect is what you are using – your feet. So if a serious runner wants to run faster and longer, they take care of their feet with a good pair of running shoes. This is their equipment.

Now, if you are serious about your health and want to jump faster, and longer, get a good pair of running shoes. No, it is not absolutely necessary, jumping bare feet is fine, but whacking your bare feet with a leather jump rope is not a pleasant feeling.

Next – a jump roper’s most important piece of equipment is – a jump rope!!!

You can find a $5 jump rope or a $50 jump rope. It really doesn’t matter really, but if you want quality and the quality you buy motivates you to actually use your jump rope, here are some fine choices: “Best Jump Ropes“. These selected jump ropes range from about $7-$20. Not much of an investment once your read the facts about jump roping below.
