Skipping can burn twice as many calories as walking, has less impact on your joints than running and is a lot more fun! Some people skip for long distances, and others simply incorporate 10 or so skips at a time into their walking routine to raise their heart rate. There’s nothing better than happily skipping to your heart's content at the gym with two serious runners pounding away on either side of you. Give it a try.
Skipping automatically connects us with spontaneous, creative, childlike energy. It energizes our dreams and our imagination. It's a great way to experience the many benefits of play.
