My auntie gifted me a jump rope for Christmas ‘17

And I used it here and there…

It honestly wasn’t until 2020 during quarantine I started to jump rope more.

Why did it take so long to get started?

I was focused on weight training and lifting heavy before

But since the gyms go from open/closed and capacity is always changing

I wanted an activity I could do every day, anywhere,

And most of all,

I wanted to get back in control of my wellness.

I was in a funk because the gyms were closed and I was waiting…

But I couldn’t sit cause I could feel myself getting anxious about that “Quarantine-15” — I REFUSE.

And I don’t like running outside,

Mostly because I live downtown and it’s just too much traffic and too many stoplights.

So I picked up my jump rope and I’m just now tracking my progress: 41 minutes is my longest time.

I jump 1 min. Rest 1 min.

Sometimes during my rest I’ll do squats or lunges 


I know people are looking for other physical activity options.

Try jump rope!

Try HIIT workouts-

There’s a bunch of free ones a Google, Instagram, or YouTube search away.

Try the 100 burpees / day challenge.

Try something.

I urge you, please don’t wait for the gyms to open.

Take control of your journey and figure out how to adjust your goals

Within quarantine parameters.

I chose to commit to jump rope.

I’ll share my progress, but of course gimme some time to make some progress

Here’s my latest progress pic/blog and transformation from no weight lifting to weight lifting:
