Skipping rope is one the cheapest workout equipment you can own. It can easily fit into your gym bag; you can carry it on work or leisure trips and basically start working out anywhere.

Less time, big results

Skipping is a great calorie burner. Just 10-15 minutes of skipping rope burn up to 200-300 calories. That’s about 1000 plus calories every week. Skipping pumps up your heart beat, which is the perfect way to get the fat melting.
