Previously we’ve covered the surprising fact that a sans rope jump rope actually received a US Patent. After becoming #9 on the Top 10 worst medgadget ideas, we didn’t really feel that this product would ever make it to market. We were wrong. And for only 60 clams, you too can jump in place.
The JumpSnap evolution is taking over America as more and more people discover the power of this exercise. Finally, a fitness product that really does burn more calories in less time suitable for all ages and abilities. Don’t wait, jump start your workout with JumpSnap!
Like many great product inventions, JumpSnap was created out of frustration. Brad LaTour fully understood the fitness benefits of jumping rope but became increasingly frustrated with the space requirements of using the jump rope and the constant interruption of tripping on the rope. Several designs and years later, he has created the ultimate solution that alleviates the largest barriers to one of the greatest exercises of all time. Even more, JumpSnap enhances your workout with additional exercises creating a program that would be impossible to perform with a traditional jump rope.
Burn 100 Calories in 5 Minutes! Results – Burn more calories in less time Convenience – At home, the gym, on the road Ease of Use – Regardless of age or ability
You mean it took the guy ‘several years’ to create a ropeless jump rope?!? Also surprising is that for a brand new product, they sure have plenty of anecdotal success stories like the token “mother of 3” and the “busy professional”. Even less predictable is the fact that the creator was thrilled with his weight loss and is now in the best shape of his life. Hmmm. . . .if I dumped all my money into a doomed company/product, I think I’d have some stress related weight loss too.
What I love the most are its top 4 selling points listed above. Convenient you say? You mean I can jump in place at home? At work? Even at the gym?!? But the “ease of use” claim needs a big asterisk because if you don’t have arms, this could be a very useless product.
