All You Have to Do is JUMP to Get Fit!

This past weekend, I bought jump rope from Target ($3). Why? What can a piece of rope do to get you fit? Here's why!

-You can burn tons of calories in a short amount of time.
- 10 minutes of vigorous jumping can havethe same benefits as a 30-minute jog.
-A great way to improve balance, coordination, and increase your endurance.\
-You can find your abs (don't kill yourself doing a bunch of crunches, when you need to burn the fat off first!)

With the nice weather finally coming out, I'm ready to jump back into my outside workouts! I know you remember jumping rope when you were just a kid! Now find your inner child, borrow that jump rope from your little sister, cousin, whoever, and jump away!

If jumping rope sounds boring, try a few of these workouts to keep it fun!

Jump rope is just one quick, easy, and fun outside workout to do. What other "quickie" workouts do you do to get fit?

I enjoy jumping rope as a part of my workout routine. It is a delightful change from my normal running or elliptical.
