Fitness, Food & Fun Friday: Jump It Out!

Remember when we used to do this for fun?




Well ladies, i am here to tell you that skipping is no longer just for fun! 
Jumping rope is a very high impact and effective way to stay and keep fit!

Skipping has multiple benefits including:
1. Easy to learn
2. Improves coordination and agility
3. No gym membership required
4. Works every muscle in the body part

I've been using the jump rope as part of my fitness plan for several months 
and it's been great. 
Initially, it was hard work but i must say, i'm getting the hang of it.  
Now i can skip for about thirty minutes 
whereas before five minutes of skipping was too much!
I try and have fun while keeping fit and it's been fantastic!

 For your next work out, pick up a jump rope and jump it out!


Confess ladies, have you ever incorporated jump rope into your fitness plan?
If not, what are you waiting for?
