|Blog: Rediscovering The Skipping
||Hallo... there I was in the gym on
my somewhat usual treadmill run feeling like a hamster, when my eyes
caught something I had not seen in decades. This long white thing with
two wooden handles at the ends was a rare sight for me.
"Oh wow, it that a skipping rope?" the question shouted in my head
while my eyes must have appeared larger than normal. I stopped the
boring treadmill and made a bee-line for the skipping rope. Taking it
in my hands, I found some empty space and proceeded to jump. 1, 2,
3... 28, 29, 30! It felt delightful and brought back childhood
memories long misplaced.
The rediscovery of the skipping rope has set me on a different
exercise track. It has also given me something to think about... why
pay $25-$100 per month on a gym membership, when you can buy a $5
skipping rope that cuts the mustard just as well? Maybe we have been
spoilt by the jacuzzi and sauna, huh?
