Jumping Rope is a great way to get into shape! It helps to improve your coordination, decrease foot and ankle injuries, burn major calories (1300 calories per hour), and more!
I have been wanting to start trying to get into shape but have been having a hard time due to work and my business! I don’t always have the time to go to the gym (at my hotels, I don’t have a Gym membership) on my layovers and when I am home, I just have so much to do at home (errands, cleaning, laundry, my business, etc) that it’s hard for me to take the time away to even go for a walk.
I joined the website Tomoson, a reviewer influencer site that rewards influencers with free or discounted items to test and review, after a friend told me about it. Once I figured out how to use the website, it was really easy to find campaigns to apply for! I received an email shortly after applying for a few saying that I was approved for the first one I had applied for!!!
My first campaign is for this FITMOTION Speed Jump Rope. They sent me a code to purchase the item for free off Amazon ( I ended up having to pay $0.14 for tax, but thats ok). The original price is $13.99 and it is an Amazon Prime item!
This jump rope is designed so you are able to practice endurance and speed training for fast results! The package arrived with:
– 1 speed rope
– 1 extra cable
– 1 quick guide of How to Jump Rope Like A Pro
– A Replacement set of screws
– 1 Nylon bag to carry everything
The How to Jump Rope Like a Pro quick guide was really helpful in learning how to properly size my jump rope. It also walks you through a step by step guys on how to use the jump rope properly to help you get the best results!
There are two different ropes to choose from, both of which are 10 feet long. An Ultra Cable, which is 1.9 oz and helps to increase resistance. And a Hyper Cable, which is 1.4 oz and produces the fastest cycle rate. You can use a wire cutter to trim both cables down to the right size for your height (refer to the quick guide for proper instructions). I didn’t have strong enough wire cutters to easily cut the wire, but I was eventually able to get the wire cut to size. Just make sure that when you go to cut the wire, that you have strong wire cutters or else expect to be cutting for like an hour lol.
The handles so far have been very durable! The are slim and lightweight, but are also really easy to handle (lol)! The logo is imprinted onto the handle, and after rubbing it firmly for a few minutes, it seems like it wont wear away for a long time. The handles do slip a little bit in my hands when I’m sweaty, so just be careful of that.
The bag is made of nylon and has a slide drawstring closure. It fits the jump rope, the extra cable, the extra screws and the How to Jump Rope guide perfectly inside. The logo on the bag also seems really durable and will last for a long time! It also comes with enough extra screws and cable covers to replace them once!
The thing I love about this jump rope is that it takes up hardly any room in my suitcase! That means I can take it with me on all of my trips and use it in my room or the hotel gym. It also doesn’t weigh ANYTHING! So my suitcase feels the same weight with or without the jump rope in it, which is good as there is no extra weight to worry about!
Actually jump roping with it is really easy too since its light weight! It takes a second or two to get started, but once you get going it’s easy! Make sure that you are following the How to Jump Rope guide for the proper way to use it for exercise.
This jump rope is great for travelers and non travelers alike. You can put it in your purse, gym bag, suitcase, etc due to its small size and it being lightweight! As long as you follow the instructions for cutting and proper use, you will get a great workout!
