Vegan Fitness: Ode to Jumprope

Ella Magers with Jump Rope

I’d like to give a big shout out to one of my best friends for vegan fitness, Jump Rope!

This morning as I used you, I realized that all I do is use you, and never do I thank you. So… Thank you! Thank you for all that you are and all that you do for me. You are so small that I can take you & use you anywhere! You will never get boring because there are endless tricks I can learn with you. You’re fun!
To me, you’re invaluable, yet the stores only value you at a few dollars. You’re quite simple, yet you can bring out strong emotions in people. Crossfitters especially seem to either hate you or love you. Adults in general are intimidated by you, yet kids will play with you with joy for hours!
You bring out the best in me Jumprope, and I will forever be grateful for your place in my life!
p.s. I also couldn’t be more thankful for our home together, Sobekick Gym.. The place where we can always kick ass together!

    I’m more of a cycler and jogger….but my youngest daughter? Loves, loves jumping rope! And it isn’t a “fad” exercise that will fade as years go by…..My daughter would totally agree with you on this blog! 🙂

    This made me smile. I love jump roping… not only is it the best workout but it’s also fun for all ages…how awesome is it that something that you received as a toy when you were young, just happen to be one of the best workouts. Fun/Fun….Win/Win. 🙂
