Staying Fit Has Never Been So Fun!

Want a fun exercise that is super easy and has loads of health benefits?

Skipping! I know what you are thinking...skipping is child's play...

Skipping is not just for the school playground or after school fun!

Boxers use skipping as training before a fight and is used by many trainers to help their client's lose weight... And best of all, skipping can be done anywhere, anytime....Honeychild!

It creates that happy feeling inside of you...You know the one you felt when you were young,footloose and fancy free...Skipping along and enjoying life and not even realizing you were exercising! Try it! You'll giggle at first...but you'll be surprised of the work out you get!

Benefits Of Skipping:
Skipping will help improve your beautiful heart & lungs, flexibility and coordination...

When using as a high-impact exercise...skipping is great for building bones and a good exercise to trim that fat from our hips, thighs and those pesky backsides!

Burn Rate:

Depending on your weight and your intensity in your workout...You
'll burn between 70-110 extra calories in a ten minute skip...

Moderate...about 70 calories
Vigorous...about 110 calories
