Bermuda Heart Foundation initially chose jump rope as its heart healthy school initiative as it’s cheap, fun and efficient in strengthening heart and lung muscles, as well as developing coordination, balance, flexibility and rhythm. Jumping rope is one of the oldest known sports dating back to 1600 BC. It can burn up to 1,000 calories per hour and is suitable for a wide variety of age groups as a form of exercise. This is why the programme has grown beyond the schools and branched out into the community.
Your heart is a muscle and, like any other, it needs to be exercised to work efficiently, and jumping rope is a perfect way to do it. A jump rope is a remarkable piece of exercise equipment. Not only is it inexpensive and easy to store, but it can be used to improve cardiovascular fitness, increase agility and tone the body’s muscles at the same time.
