    Skipping is very great for one's health. I find it a good way to energize for the day. I feel more optimistic, feel lighter and more in charge of the day and trust me those days are really awesome. U get to ooze confidence and charm after a good skipping session. So grab your ropes!

    I find skipping a very fast way to burst the sweat just before you have to jump in the shower and head out.Thank you for sharing.

    Couldn't be more right Dr Chi! As a child I remember skipping (competition mode with friends lol) for the fun of doing the most jumps without breaking.. It still remains an exciting and energy filled exercise. I will resume asaply! Love the outfit btw!
