Want a quick workout that sculpts shoulders, shapes calves and burns a bit of that pent-up energy you're hanging on to?

Pick up a jump rope.

According to the Jump Rope Institute, just 5 minutes of jumping rope a day can harbor the same benefits as 30 minutes of jogging (or more!). Now that's some math we Clementine gals can get behind.

So turn up the tunes, grab your kids, pets or roommates and jump around. Double dutch, anyone?

p.s. How cute is this jump rope for a worthy cause? And don't forget to breathe!
