Skipping ropes are very cheap, but the cheapest is making your own or even just the hopping and jumping with an imaginary rope will work!

Some things to think about, are you knees though, if you have any knee problems I would suggest riding a bike as the impact is less.

How to Skip to lose weight

Starting with just a few seconds and build up over a few weeks to five minuets then 10.
