If the idea of skipping only brings back distant memories from the school playground, I’d say it’s time to give it another shot! If you follow my Snapchat (@fitnessontoast), you might have noticed a load of videos where I’m working on my skip, as well as in THIS video from last year. As a form of exercise, I absolutely love it! To my mind, it’s one of the most high-energy yet low-impact ways to get fit, with a bunch of broader health benefits to boot! Ahead of Sport Relief 2016 next month, which I supported last year through my Swimathon adventures, Sure has launched the world’s first Skipathon! They’re asking the Great British nation to join in and help them reach the target of 1 million skips as part of their month-long Sure Skipathon and they will donate £200,000 to Sport Relief – That’s money which will help make a difference to people living tough lives both here in the UK and across the world’s poorest communities – AND you get fitter too! Read below to find out more about this and my 5 top reasons to skip!
