Aerobic Office Exercise: Jumping Rope


Jumping rope is an excellent aerobic workout for a work environment. It is low-cost (between $5-$25) and the rope can easily fit into a drawer or locker. All you need is enough ceiling height and room to turn the rope without knocking over your inbox!


  • Work out at your own pace.
  • Start with short, 15 to 20 second bouts of jumping interspersed with 30 to 40 seconds of rest or light marching.
  • Repeat this pattern 5 to 10 times.
  • As your stamina increases, lengthen your jump bouts and shorten your rests.
  • Stretch afterwards
