Finding the right tools to help me get fit has been a major focus this year. One thing I have enjoyed since I was little is jumping rope. I know it is a fun way to get in my cardio and a wonderful way to build endurance. I was quite happy when ZojiFit reached out to me with an opportunity to review their premium Crossfit jump rope.
The rope is very lightweight. Even with two solid handles, metal ball bearings, and a generous length of wire cable it is light as a feather. It tucks away into a small carrying case… along with a spare cable and fasteners…. making this the ultimate travel workout tool that can easily find a place in your luggage, backpack, or bag.
I have a long way to go until I’m a “serious athlete,” but this rope is making me feel more like a pro with each passing day. It’s all the fun of jump roping from when I was a kid, but with a grownup style rope. I don’t have near the endurance that I had as a kid, but I am slowly building myself up. I may actually be able to tackle Crossfit someday. I have every reason to believe that this rope is strong enough to see me all the way to that goal and on to bigger better goals.
The rope can be very easily adjusted to suit different heights. The only downside is that you need to hold the excess rope in your hands or cut the cable. It’s strong wire cable, so you will need a wire cutter. The cord has rubber tips that can be removed and re-placed on to the cut ends.
The handles are a generous length, so I feel like I can get a nice strong and steady grip. I think, if anything, it will be the plastic handles that give out first. They are a solid and strong plastic, but definitely the weak point in the overall design. I see no reason why they wouldn’t survive years of normal use, though.
I love how smoothly it moves. The metal ball bearings allow the rope to turn easily no matter what speed I am jumping at. It never tangles or twists. It’s just simply a very well-designed jump rope that I think every fitness-minded individual or family should have in their arsenal of fat blasting tools!
Pros: Lightweight, sturdy cable. Fast metal ball bearing construction. Doesn’t tangle. Small, lays flat, and easy to take along anywhere in the included pouch. Adjustable length. Extra cable.
Cons: Need to hold excess rope in my hands or cut the rope.
I received this at a discount in exchange for my opinion. As someone who relies on honest reviews to make purchases, I work hard to provide other consumers with a thorough, truthful, and unbiased opinion of my personal experiences.
