Jump Rope by Naturalico Review
My husband and I have recently made a pact to be more active. We have had friends the same age as us (early 30's) getting really sick and it has really made us re-evaluate our choices. We want to make sure that we are healthy and set a good example to our kids. I have been wanting to try jump roping for exercise for a while. This is the first jump rope I have go specifically for exercising. I have messed around with my kids jump ropes on occasion, but being short they are always too long for me and they are also difficult to get a fast, steady pace going. The first thing I loved about this jump rope is the ability to adjust the length. That is something super important for someone with short legs!This is a 10 ft long rope, so it is also great for tall people and everyone in between, I also loved that the rope allows for a faster jump which helps with getting in a better workout. Another really cool thing about using a jump rope is you can get in the same amount of cardio in ten minutes that you could doing a thirty minute video. Rope jumping works a lot of muscles, so you burn calories faster. Shorter workouts are a big win for a busy mom of three. I like to use the jump rope to get in some cardio on the days that I can't make it into the gym or need to burn some extra calories. This jump rope is great for beginners and experts alike. For newbies like me, I will warn that if you get over zealous and hit yourself with the rope it really hurts! It is not difficult to get the hang of a smooth session of jumping though, it just takes a few tries...at least it did for me! I think jump roping is a great workout and it is actually pretty fun, which makes working out that much easier! I absolutely recommend giving it a try!
