Despite many infomercial claims to the contrary, there is no such thing as the perfect exercise. The perfect exercise would cost very little, take a few minutes to complete, be enjoyable indefinitely for everyone, develop every area of fitness, and never cause injury.

Rope jumping (a.k.a. rope skipping, skip roping, jump rope) is, however, an excellent form of exercise that you should consider if you are looking for a way to keep fit, train for another sport, or just to have fun.
