When people think of their gyms, they probably picture cardio equipment, strength training equipment, and maybe some free weights. But a lot of the nation’s largest gyms offer more than that. To help supplement a workout, most gyms also have resistance training tools and equipment dedicated to coordination and balance. One of the most underrated pieces of equipment in gyms are jump ropes.

Nikki Metzger, a Nike Master trainer and Carbon 38 Ambassador, shared with Generation Active her preferred exercise with a rope. Plank hops, in and out via, one-legged jump, Nikki has a plethora of variations to spice up your routine.

Nikki’s endorsement of the jump rope shouldn’t be taken lightly. Her brand of fitness is built on well-tested fundamentals, designed for efficiency and delivered with upbeat intensity. Skipping rope is the perfect workout to get your heart going and your body movie. That is why skipping is the ideal exercise to add to your fitness routine.

The beauty of the skipping is that you can exercise with it wherever, whenever. Whether it is in your gym or at a park or in your own home, this piece of equipment has rare versatility that most cardio equipment does not have.

According to 24 Hour Fitness, jumping rope should be part of your weekly exercise. Skipping counts as a vigorous-intensity activity that can satisfy your cardio exercise needs. Before skipping, 24 Hour Fitness recommends stretching before your exercise.

Remember to stretch every time you exercise, or at least 3 times per week,” 24 Hour Fitness says.

Skipping rope is an underrated cardio exercise that should not be dismissed.

“Next time someone tells you to skip a workout, just skip a rope instead,” Nikki says.
