With tons of workouts out there, it can be overwhelming to find the right fitness routine for you. But one workout that’s recommended for everyone and for just about every fitness trainer (yes, you read that right) is jump roping.

Incorporating a jump rope into your workout regimen brings a ton of benefits including burning tons of calories (around 480 calories in 30 minutes), building your agility and quickness, and increasing bone density. Plus, jump roping is a simple workout, and one of the more affordable workout options — so what do you have to lose?

Lucky for you, each FabFitFun Editor’s Box comes with a MYTAGALONGS High Speed Skipping Rope, meaning you get to experience jump roping the second you unpack your very first FabFitFun Box. Not convinced yet? Here are three more reasons to start jump roping:

Great cardio workout
You know you can’t only lift weights to see results, but not everybody likes to run or cycle. Give jump roping a try! Jump roping burns about 10 to 16 calories a minute and according to Science Daily, 10 minutes of jumping is equivalent to 8 miles. You’ll build up stamina and endurance with each session and start seeing definition in no time.

Helps with balance and coordination
Not only do you get your heart pumping, you’ll also become surprisingly coordinated. You have to use your brain to figure out the best moment to jump. Jump roping is a favorite workout especially amongst boxers as they have to be light on their feet and improve their footwork.

Helps relieve stress
You’ve heard it before: when you exercise, your body releases endorphins, which make you happy (Legally Blonde anyone?). Stressed out about an upcoming meeting with your boss? Try jumping for five minutes to help ward off anxiety and boost your self-esteem. You’ll also be preoccupied with jumping on the beat, thus helping you really take your mind off of things.
