Unlike a BLT without the bacon or a stripper without the boobies, a jump rope without the rope might actually be an improvement upon the original. First of all, a lot of people are good at jumping up and down (yes, I'm definitely talking to you, Katy Perry) but their talents run dry when you throw a pair of handles and a vertically revolving cord into the mix. Call out some double jumps, high knees, or rotational movement of the hips, and any hope of achieving a cardiovascular workout devolves into 10 minutes of expletives and pouting before giving up altogether and plopping down on the couch to assuage frustrations with a Duck Dynasty marathon. With a digital cordless jump rope, there will be no more of that.

Second of all, some people are legitimately skilled at jumping rope. But they have restricted space available to them, or lousy depth perception, and end up getting the rope caught in the ceiling fan, blaming it for breaking their mama's Baccarat crystal decanter, or inadvertently using it to lasso a passing 250-pound Russian with 8% body fat. With a digital cordless jump rope, there will be no more of that.

Third of all, a few people can count. But counting is for chumps. With a digital cordless jump rope, there will be no more of that.

With little balls attached to short lengths of cord replacing the full handle-to-handle connection, this ropeless jump rope maintains the feel and delivers the effect of the standard version, but eliminates the need for a wide open surrounding space and bodily coordination. Its digital keypad tracks time and number of jumps, plus estimates calories burned base on the user's height and weight.
