5 Simple Ways to Convince Your Friends to Jump Rope With You

Published on February 15, 2017

Need help convincing your friends to jump rope with you?

I do enjoy training on my own – you’ll often find me in a corner of the gym or in a random park going all out with my jump rope sessions and my tunes.
