How to “Jump” Start Cardio the Playful Way

In my opinion, the most regrettable aspect of growing up is forgetting how to play. Remember sprinting around the jungle gym all afternoon as a kid…heart pounding…lungs burning…legs aching…yet never losing steam?

For me, those childhood memories can be summed up in just one word: freedom.

Who says there’s an age limit on playtime? Why, as adults, are we expected to trade in our muddy sneakers for sensible penny loafers? At what point, did the arbitrary expiration date on “fun” expire?

The youthful you viewed physical activity as a source of enjoyment, while the mature you  considers it a necessary evil. Au contraire, I say! You’re never too old for recapturing that boundless energy and free spirit.

But, where to start? That’s the million dollar question.

Enter: TKO Sports, a workout equipment company who’s tagline Whatever It Takes reflects a deep-rooted commitment to wellness and healthy living. Plus, TKO recognizes the importance of P-L-A-Y. (Your younger self would definitely approve!)

So, without further ado…introducing TKO Soft-Grip Jump Ropes, a revolution in cardio fitness that puts the excitement back in exercise.
