My sister headed to Target to find her “Step Up” – something that she has come to love ever since her personal trainer made her do all sorts of things on it. Sadly, Target didn’t have it so we headed to Walmart. After skimming the extensive workout equipment, I saw a Gold Gym’s Weighted Jump Rope and wanted to buy it. My sister on the other hand, saw a Gold Gym’s weight Hula Hoop.
We ended up buying both items, Read below for a mini Review + Pictures !

Excuse the lighting… even though I tried to fix it – it didn’t work.
On first use, my sister told me, “It hurts so much, is it supposed to do that? Google it.” After googling it, I found out that many people said it hurt them for the first 5 or so sessions, but it turned out to be one of their favorite forms of exercise. After doing it for about 5 minutes she gave up!

The directions along with everything else made me scared, because I’m horrible at following directions and putting things together. I bought a weighted jump rope once, but it was a bit long for me. In my opinion, if a jump rope is too short for me then it’ll be harder for me to jump – if its too long then I’ll be more likely to mess up. Length really does matter. So, I love that I am able to adjust the weight and the length of the rope.
Since the jump rope seems a bit complicated for me to do, I’ll do a review on it compared to my school jump rope in the future after I try it out.
