Time to order a jump rope from Amazon ASAP. There are a plethora of options. However, I don’t think suppliers have 300 million jump ropes in their inventory, so better hustle before it’s too late. BTW, the amazing jump rope I just ordered only cost $14.99.

The health benefits of fitness are immeasurable:

  • Strengthens immune system
  • Boosts mental health. According to 5 critical neurotransmitters are released while exercising:
    • Serotonin  – the mood chemical that boosts positivity and substantially decreases depression
    • Norepinephrine – the brain chemical that makes us more alert and focused
    • BDNF – memory hormone that has a three fold increase through exercise, improving cognitive function
    • Dopamine – the brain chemical that fuels motivation and reward
    • Endorphins – the “feel good” chemicals
  • 30 minutes of daily exercise improves sleep which strengthens immune system
  • Reduces stress
  • Burns calories and keeps us looking and feeling great
