Yes you read that correctly.  Fun and cardio aren't two words you usually associate with one another.  I have nightmares of spending too many minutes on a cardio machine getting nowhere. I look at the clock after what has seemed like 40 minutes only to find out its been 4. Read on to see how I get around the cardio grind in a fun, fast way.

My Favourite Fast & Fun Cardio

"Those who don't jump will never fly..."

Yes you read that correctly.

Fun and cardio aren't two words you usually associate with one another.

I have nightmares of spending a zillion minutes on a cardio machine getting nowhere. I totally look at the clock after what has seemed like 40 minutes only to find out its been 4. Ughhhh.

A good friend of mine inspired me to try something new for cardio and now I love it.

Jump rope.

Why?

  • it burns a ton of calories
  • its easy
  • its fun
  • its inexpensive
  • it improves cardio fitness and tones your body
  • it sculpts your legs, bum, shoulders and arms
  • you don't need to do it for very long
  • you can do it anywhere
  • you can easily travel with it


I use a good, lightweight jump rope, put on my running shoes, blare some tunes and jump rope for about 10 - 15 minutes a few times a week.  I like to do intervals to step it up a notch - 30 seconds of going as fast as I can and then regular/slow pace for a minute. 

That's it!

When the weather is nice, try it early in the morning outside with no music - and listen to the world wake up.
