Win It! Chi-Town Fitness Trend: Rope Burn

We've been obsessed with jump-ropes since the first time we watched our neighbors attempt double-dutch. If only we knew the value of a workout in third grade. These days, Chicagoans are getting a little tired with the workout routine, so we're upping the ante, literally. On Your Mark Coaching and Training is riding the trend wave with the launch of Rope Burn, a new class utilizing jump-ropes of various sizes and weights. Apparently, this kind of thing is a calorie-killer, with 10 minutes of jumping-rope being the workout equivalent of 30 minutes of running. If you're the instant-gratification type, this burn's for you. Care to try? Hop over to our Facebook page and enter to win a free class, so at least the first time you get you ass kicked, you don't have to pay for it.
