Thought skipping was just for kids? Wrong. In fact, it’s insanely good for your health and fun AF. Why spend your time grinding on the treadmill or pedalling on the bike when you can literally do something that takes you back to your childhood, while reaping the fantastic health benefits? Keep reading to find out exactly why skipping should become an integral part of your workouts, startingyesterday.

  1. HIIT and Cardio

There’s no denying that cardio is good for your health. And boy, does skipping give you cardio! In fact, you’d have to run an eight-minute mile to burn more calories than simply jumping rope. Plus, you can easily make it into a fat-blasting HIIT workout that does wonders for your heart health and slims you down. To kick your workout into HIIT gear, alternate 20 seconds of intense jump rope with 10 seconds of rest and doing this for eight rounds using your HIIT timer. It might sound easy, but trust us, your body will feel like jelly afterwards!

  1. Full Body Toning

We love efficient workouts that hit more than one muscle group at once and skipping actually gives you full-body toning that’s hard to beat. It obviously helps sculpt your legs from jumping up and down, but also gives your arms a pretty solid workout from holding and swinging the ropes. Plus, your abs are kicking in to keep you balanced, help absorb the shock of landing, and help you shoot up for each jump. You’re going to feel this one all over the next day, for the delicious soreness that means you’ve worked hard.

Need help getting the hang of skipping? Opt for a weighted speed rope, which will help you better control the rotations and bounds while also torching even more calories and giving your muscles more of a challenge.  

  1. Builds Coordination

If you haven’t skipped since you were a kid, it’s going to be tough. But that’s agood thing. You want your workout to test your coordination, challenging your mind-body connection to make it even stronger. Skipping builds your awareness of your body, which is only going tohelp with your overall fitness and with other types of workouts, especially as you get older.

  1. Affordable and Portable

You don’t need a fancy gym membership to get a great workout in. In fact, the entirety of your equipment needs could fit in your purse and can cost less than $100 – making it the perfect workout for travelling, at-home exercise, and those who are budget-conscious. Plus, if you have little kiddies that demand your attention, you can get a quality workout in while spending time with them by skipping as a family – they’ll get a blast out of skipping with you, and you can work up to some pretty gnarly Double Dutch combos!

  1. Low Impact

When done properly, jumping rope is actually much easier on your joints than other cardio-intense exercises, like running and jogging. When you’re walking or running, you naturally absorb most of the impact in your heels, but when you’re skipping you absorb most of the impact in your body’s natural shock absorbers by staying high on the toes and keeping the stress of your joints.

There’s no doubt about it: skipping is a fantastic workout with so many benefits to your health. And just for today we are offering 20% off on our amazing BodyRock Weighted Speed Rope with code SKIPIT. So Hop on this deal now and plant the seeds of your summer body in spring. Shop here.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
