Travel Tip: Stash a Jump Rope in Your Trunk

It is not uncommon to be driving to your destination this holiday season, which means more time sitting in the car and less time walking or exercising.

One thing that I always make sure to have in my trunk for long car rides is a jump rope. My family tends to stop frequently while on road trips, so at each rest stop I like to do a mini jump-rope session (five minutes or so). Now that I have kids, I bring jump ropes for the girls too, so that they can burn some energy while mommy is burning calories. Plus, then I won't feel so bad indulging in a piece of pie (or two) once I get to my destination.

Fit's Tip: Jessica Simpson got great results from jumping rope, so it's worth a shot!

Interesting, I just went to visit my parents for the holidays and a jump rope was one of the first things I packed. Great for poor weather as well, as I can turn on the radio in the garage and get a pretty good workout.

I don't have one in my car but I have a super light jump rope in my suitcase at all time. Whenever I pack for traveling, I know I have it with me. With a pair of sneakers for running and my ipod it's all I need to keep fit when traveling. :)

I keep a jump rope in my car just for that reason. I use it for when I go to my parents' house where there aren't a lot of fitness options. I also pack one when I go on trips so I can jump rope at the hotel.
