Skipping - is it worth it??!!

[The Guardian thinks it is!]

 

Well, we certainly do enough skipping to know just how good it genuinely is for your body and brain but it's always good to hear that others think so too!

[Thanks to The Guardian 09/03/15]

Some time ago, The Guardian investigated skipping as part of its get fit quick' tool - barring the fact that it's helpful if you can skip in the first place (!), it certainly seems to have had an effect on Stuart Heritage...

You can read more here courtesy of The Guardian , and why Mr H thinks it does actually work (if you can skip!)

You can easily start your own personal skipping fitness programme*, whether you want to go intense and use it everyday with other exercises or just as a 'refresher' after you've been sitting at your desk for too long (that applies to some of us more than others, me being a perfect example!) 

It's easy to find a size to suit you and start slow and build up, take a 5 minute breather on the hour every hour you're at your desk and see if skipping can bring an extra bit of light and life back into your day! 

Children already know how much fun skipping is but if you'd like to find out more, you can easily call us on 01743 361863 for a friendly chat or drop us an email at tina@skipping4schools.co.uk if you have any specific objectives in mind and let us see how and if we can help find a programme to suit you.

"It's been an amazing day George, worth every penny and our children, I know, will enjoy the benefits of the exercise for many years to come, thank you!" Jill Wood, Little London Community Primary

 

 

 *As ever, it's best to take medical advice when commencing any strenuous programme of activity if you have had any medical problems in the past.
