As Sports Medicine Specialist, I’m very well-versed in the countless exercises and training protocols that can be used to help people become fitter, stronger, faster and healthier. And truth be told, there are certain workouts that I particularly love and highly recommend when it comes to helping everyday people achieve weight loss success in a shorter period of time.

Yes, jumping rope does a body good!
My overall point here is that jumping rope is an amazing workout that can literally transform your body and help you achieve a fantastic physique without the need for fancy gym equipment or even a gym membership!
Not to mention, jumping rope is also tons of fun, can be enjoyed by people of all ages and all fitness levels, and personally, I love jumping rope so much that I also took the time to develop my own Phoenyx Jump Rope which is a custom-designed, adjustable jump rope that’s perfect for individuals of all ages and jumping levels – from beginner level to advanced.
Now whether you choose to use my Phoenyx Jump Rope or another brand is totally up to you – and either way, my overall goal here is to
