BichiBalls: Not Just a Funny Name

Need a quick and inexpensive workout you can do anywhere -- Even in your small city apartment?

BichiBalls($15) are a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to fit a cardio workout into life and an apartment. In fact, the makers claim that working out with BichiBalls for just ten minutes is equal to a one-mile run. BichiBalls simulate jumping rope, but they are much easier to use because there is no rope. No rope means that there's no tripping or breaking your rhythm, so you get a fun and unique cardio workout (even if you're not coordinated enough to jump rope).

Watching BichiBalls in motion kind of reminds me of watching Cirque du Soleil or Rhythmic Gymnastics. Definitely try it with one hand first and then once you get the feel, do both arms. To learn more, to see some videos of how to do it and to buy yourself a set check out the UrbanAerobics.com site.
