Ok…maybe out in the country, we’re the last to hear about the latest fitness craze, but here it is. The Cordless Jump Rope.
“The idea isn’t all that crazy, said Mike Ernst, a professor of kinesiology at California State University in Dominguez Hills. “I think it’s silly but at the same time if somehow, some way it promotes physical activity, gets kids active, then I’m all for it,” Ernst said.
The more he thought about it, the more Ernst said he could see the benefit, adding that the act of jumping, not the rope itself, is what provides exercise.
“Do you need to jump with a rope? You don’t,” Ernst said. “But I wouldn’t buy the product, I can tell you that. I’m not an idiot.”
Well, now that we’ve cleared that up.
For those who think this is a good idea, I’ve got another wonderful product for you.
For those who don’t know what this is read this.For those who think there has to be a point to everything, just relate this post to some of the various church growth methods propagated today, and you’ll feel better.
