    It would come in handy at my place, where my ceilings in the workout area are low enough that a regular jump rope won't clear them. And it's too damned cold in the winter months to go out to the garage area where the ceilings are higher.

    I should start jumping rope. My downstairs neighbors would love me as much as I love their noise.

    skipping (jump rope) is an awesome cardio and excellent for the calves after ten minutes straight if your legs aren't burning and you aren't desperate to catch your breath.. you been cheating ;)

    Ahhh hahahahaha. That made me think of something you would find in the raver clubs. All it needs is some flashing lights.

    $50 for a pair of jump rope handles

    vs

    $3 for an actual jump rope.

    Hmm....which is the better deal...decisions, decisions...

    Personally, I'd save myself the embarrassment of this. But yes, there are certain people, like me, that lack balance and coordination because they are so limber. At least that's what my Yoga teacher told me.

    Oh, I cant jump a rope worth a good god-damn. But, avoiding developing the real coordination and conditioning by buying a rope-less jump rope isnt the answer. Practice is the answer. Altho I suppose someone could argue that jumping over that piece of rope isnt the goal here, doing the exercise is the goal. And whether you are jumping up and down over a piece of rope or jump a virtual rope doesnt matter....and this gizmo gives you counts and other feedback, But, then again, you can cheat in your "jumping" with this thing and not really perform as you would if you had to avoid getting tangled up in the rope.

    But it looks foolish as hell.

    I have a jump rope and it just kills me to even try. Nursery rhymes can only carry me so far as I jump rope. But the bigger pain is my feet hurt over time, I need padding so the impact isn't so harsh.
