As I do a lot of workouts at home and weekly (ish) workout videos here for the blog I was excited to try some fitness equipment out recently including this speed jump rope from Inspired Fitness Gear. I was given the jump rope in exchange for a review, but as always opinions expressed here are my own and unbiased. I speak my mind!

I’ve used a few different types of jump rope and had invested in a similar style speed jump rope recently but I was happy to see that this one was of a higher quality than the one I already had. The ball bearings meant a really nice fluid motion whilst moving. The length was easy to adjust by adjusting the screw. No equipment needed, a simple twist with the hand was all that was needed.
You can cut the jump rope to length but as yet I’ve not done that. If I were to cut it the end caps are removable and replaceable to avoid sharp or fraying edges. The jump rope was easy to use and very smooth in it’s motion. What really struck me was it was very light. The handles are hollow making it light, and allowing for easier movement.
Another thing I noticed was that during double unders I didn’t get the customary curse fest when I missed and whipped my legs. This jump rope didn’t seem to leave the same kind of sting, which I personally appreciated. All in all I’m really happy with it, and would recommend it for anyone thinking of getting a speed jump rope.
