Jumping rope

Can a jumping rope help you keep fit. I live in a small town where there is no gym. I've been jogging in the morning but now of lately it's dark by 5:30 am. In the evening I'm at work. However I've started to use jumping rope in the mornings for 15-20 minutes. Do you think this might help?

Hi there

Yes, it should - but try to have some variety in your exercsie. I suggest you try the home-based "Shape up for Summer" exercise programme on the home page of this website.

Good luck!
