=== The product === This is a skipping rope from the Argos value range. This is almost 3 metres in length so is ideal for adults of medium or tall height. This rope has foam covered handles which are designed to be comfortable to use and hold. === Where can I buy this & for how much? === This can be purchased from Argos.co.uk and Argos stores for £1.99. Mine was actually given to me by my sister who had not really got any use from it and was just going to chuck it out, along with a few other fitness items. === Overall opinion === About six months ago I purchased a cross trainer and resolved to get myself back ...

Having a daughter who's on a get fit kick has meant that I've been encouraged to get off my sedentary bottom and join her, also there's a family wedding coming up in the spring and I don't want to be the fat auntie in the pictures again. Skipping may not be the sort of exercise that immediately springs to mind when thinking of a start up exercise programme for a chubby, what with all that blubber undulating up and down (I paint a pretty picture of myself don't I). However it's good calorie burner (approximately 11 calories a minute depending on your weight and intensity of workout), very good cardio vascular exercise, and works the arms, legs, and torso if you ...

I, much like a large percentage of people, go through phases and fads of fitness regimes, the most recent being joining my local gym. I do a few classes and cardio machines and noticed a fair few people in the class rooms using skipping ropes they had brought with them, it seemed like a good warm up routine and so I treated myself to one! I looked online for the best value skipping ropes, that weren't aimed at children with novelty colours or patterns and I came across this one from Argos, which was exactly what I wanted, cheap and simple! Knowing I go through phases of exercise I didn't want to spend too much money. It was priced at a bargainous £1.99 ... Read the complete review

Intro ------ I will start off this review by admitting that I am probably a little biused, as I am a bit of a gym junkie and love any fitness product if it works. The skipping rope, around for ages, has always been a proven way of building stamina and muscular endurance, and this Argos effort is no different. I mainly do weight training, and as such, eat a lot to try and build muscle. However, in order to ensure my gains are pure muscle and no fat, it is important to do short bursts of high intensity training, this can be done in a variety of ways, with skipping being one of them - so I googled skipping ropes on the net and this was one of the cheapest, and I ...

I have quite a few value fitness items, and most are rubbish (when will I ever learn), and most of them end up gathering dust, donated to my local charity shop, or broken. But when it came to purchasing a skipping rope for fitness, I didn't see why I should have to pay mega bucks. It's a rope...for skipping. It can hardly have bells and whistles - the only 'impressive' thing I've ever seen on a skipping rope is a skip counter on the handle, and a bit of research shows me you can still get these, but for me it's not the amount of skips I do, just that I do it every other day for a half hour or so. Just to get the blood pumping and the muscles ... Read the complete review
