Today is World Skipping Day…Yay!!!

Friday 21 April 2017

Skipping is an activity some of us participated in when we were kids, but do you know you can still skip and have fun even as an adult?

According to the British Rope Skipping Association, 10 minutes of skipping can have the same health benefits as a 45-minute run. Skipping is a full body workout which uses your abdominal muscles to stabilise the body, your legs for jumping, and your shoulders and arms for turning the rope. So if skipping is accessible to you, why don’t you give it a go and have fun doing it? It is not expensive and does not require a large amount of space. Celebrate with other people skipping today and make it a habit. Get active get skipping!
